Work in the Edit Audio Sequence dialog box


In the Edit Audio Sequence dialog box, you can build simple sequences in the Sequence Builder mode, or you can access the Custom Expression mode to create more complex sequences using expressions. The Edit Audio Sequence dialog box heading indicates whether you are currently editing a menu prompt, the initial greeting, or an action’s associated audio element. 

When you build an audio sequence in the Sequence Builder, choose each item to add to the sequence and then select the desired settings to apply to each item. For example, if you choose to add data playback, an Options drop-down list appears, with choices that apply specifically to the data type. The audio sequence you build here is actually an audio expression.

Switch to the Custom Expression Builder to see the audio expression Architect generates from your sequence.

Note: Switching from the Sequence Builder to the Custom Expression Builder will generate an audio expression. However, if you switch from the Custom Expression Builder to the Sequence Builder, it will not interpret the custom expression text and instead reconfigures the sequence. Use caution when switching between modes. For more information, see Expression tips and best practices.

You can enter a simple audio string inline played back as TTS, you can begin typing to view a list of available prompts from which to select, or you add an audio sequence in the Edit Audio Sequence dialog box by selecting the edit audio sequence button in any audio configuration field:

In the Edit Audio Sequence dialog box, you can use the sequence builder to quickly add any combination of text to speech, prompts, or data actions. By default, Architect opens this dialog box in Sequence Builder mode.

As you create the expression, you can switch between Custom Expression Builder and Sequence Builder without losing your work, unless you edit the expression while in Custom Expression Builder. This feature is helpful if you want to see want to see the actual expression Architect generates from what you configure on the sequence builder.

Warning: If you edit the expression in Custom Expression Builder, Architect resets the sequence.

In the Edit Audio Sequence dialog box, you can use the custom expression builder to create expressions for prompt and audio scenarios. In addition, you can also access Function and Operator help, which includes a comprehensive list of audio elements to include in your expression. Here, you can view detailed descriptions, examples, and sample output. Copy and paste a desired audio example into the audio sequence design form and modify it for your expression.
