a visual development environment where you can create and customize your
voice applications. Mailboxes represent high-level function building blocks.
The Manager allows you to create, define, and link them together based
on the logical call flow of your application.
After completing your application, you can collapse or expand
a mailbox tree to have a good overall view of your application's structure.
If any modification needs to be done, with the Manager's graphical user
interface, the maintainence of the application is as simple as point and
Each Mailbox is defined by choosing from available programmable
high-level functions such as DTMFmenu, DoTransfer, GetInput, SelectFax
(see more in the Programmable Function Server - click 'Next" button on
the botom of this page), and configuring the function's set of properties
to meet your application's needs. Programmers have the flexibilites to
add new properties or functions by writing their own or modifying the source
code of the provided functions with Microsoft Visual Basic 4.0.
Recording Voice Prompts with
the Voice Recorder
If the Mailbox plays voice prompts, you can easily record
voices with the Voice Recorder. All prompts are in the 8-bit u-Law WAVE
format and can be recorded through the telephone handset or through a microphone
that is attached to a sound card capable of playing the u-law format (i.e.
Sound Blaster 16 and most cards in Windows 95). You can record, playback,
copy, and edit the voice prompts easily.
After a mailbox's function and properties are defined
you then enter the tone inputs and conditions that branch from the mailbox
to other mailboxes into the Branch Table. You can link to existing mailboxes
or let the Branch Table create new empty mailboxes for you. The Manager
allows you to make duplicates of a mailbox from Template Mailbox to save
valuable development time.
