Default Value: 1 second
The interdigit timeout value to use when recognizing DTMF input.
<?xml version="1.0"?><vxml version="2.0"><property name="termmaxdigits" value="true"/><property name="interdigittimeout" value="3s"/><form><field name="myfield" type="digits?length=5"><prompt>Enter up to five ones or twos.</prompt><filled><prompt bargein="false">You entered <value expr="myfield"/>.</prompt></filled><nomatch>You did not enter enough ones or twos.<reprompt/></nomatch><noinput>You did not enter anything.<reprompt/></noinput></field></form></vxml>
From this example, by setting “termmaxdigits” to true, we can allow for no timeout as soon as the user has matched the maximum number of digits. If the user enters 5 numbers, the behavior of the application immediately returns a response to the user. If the user entered less than 5 numbers of ones or twos, the application waits for 3 seconds from the “interdigittimeout” property and returns a <nomatch> after 3 seconds has passed with nothing inputted. If the user entered more than 5 numbers, the application returns just the first 5 digits that were entered by the user.
