This section allows users to define and modify an application's language settings.
1. Default Language: If an application on has one active language, that is automatically the default language. If an application has more than one language, users can select a different default language using the drop-down menu. Fuse only lists languages active in the application in the drop-down menu.
2. TTS Engine: Users can select their preferred text-to-speech (TTS) engine from the options available in the drop-down menu. Note: Not all TTS engines are available for all languages. If users select a TTS engine that is not compatible with all of the languages present in a given application, then the drop-down will be blank.
3. TTS Voice: Based on the options available from the TTS engine, users can select the different voices for each of the active languages in an application. Select the desired voice for each language from the options in the drop-down menu. Note: Some languages do not provide multiple voice options. To view a complete list of available TTS voices, visit the Text-to-Speech page.
Settings in this section allow users to customize the end-user experience.
1. Initial Input Timeout: This determines the number of seconds an end-user has to provide input, either by pressing a button or saying something, before Fuse generates a 'No Input' error.
2. Final DTMF Timeout: After an end-user begins entering number pad input, this is the time, in seconds, that end-users have to input additional number pad input before Fuse determines that the end-user has finished inputting information, accepting that information and progressing to the next part of the call-flow.
3. Final Speech Timeout: This is the speech equivalent of final DTMF timeout. After an end-user begins speaking, this is the number of seconds of silence that must elapse before Fuse determines that the end-user has finished speaking. Once end-users reach this threshold, Fuse accepts the input they have already provided and progresses to the next part of the call-flow.
These are the default values when errors occur during a phone call. Users can over-ride these settings on specific modules by enabling the 'Show Custom Errors' option on modules that have it.
4. No Match: A 'No Match' error occurs when an end-user enters invalid input. For example, if a prompt asks end-users to “press 1 for yes, or 2 for no” and the end-user enters 0, this would constitute a 'No Match' error.
5. No Input: This happens when the user does not enter anything at all.
6. Shortcuts: Shortcuts allow users to define global grammars and tie those options/grammars to actions. The most common example of this to have a global option whereby end-users enter 0 to be transferred to a live operator. Although it is possible to use automatic speech recognition (ASR) for these functions, this is not a recommended practice.
To add a global shortcut to a Fuse application, click the button in the Shortcuts section. This generates a new field with three columns: Press, Or Say, and To Jump To.
Press: This drop-down menu contains the following DTMF values
Or Say: If users opt to include an ASR option for their custom shortcut, enter that information in the text box.
To Jump To: This includes a drop-down menu that contains all of the pages in the application.
The connection settings control how a Fuse application interacts with an associated webservice.
1. Webservice Timeout: This determines the number of seconds that Fuse waits for a connected webservice to respond before throwing an error. The default setting is 10 seconds. While it is certainly possible to increase the default value for this setting, it is recommended to work to increase the speed of the associated webservice if 10 seconds is insufficient.
2. Webservice Fetch Audio: This is where users set the audio that plays while the associated webservice is working. This corresponds to the hold music option for several modules, including the REST and SOAP module. The default is silence. Click the button to add a custom audio file.
3. Transfer Timeout: This determines the number of seconds that Fuse waits for the transfer to ring before giving up. The default is 60 seconds.
4. Transfer Duration: This indicates the maximum amount of time, in seconds, that Fuse allows a call transfer to last.
5. Transfer Fetch Audio: This indicates the audio that plays while waiting for the transfer number to pick up. The default audio is of a telephone ringing.
A post-call webservice is one that a Fuse application connects to immediately after a call ends. These settings control how a Fuse application connects and interacts with that webservice. Fuse supports both SOAP and REST webservices.
Type: This drop-down menu lets users select either a SOAP or a REST webservice.
1. REST: Selecting a REST webservice dynamically changes the available options. Fuse generates fields for URL and parameters.
2. SOAP: Selecting a SOAP webservice dynamically changes the available options. Fuse generates WSDL and Method fields.
To add a JS library to your Fuse+ application, click the “+Add” button. This opens a new windows with a drop-down menu.
Select the desired library from the menu to add it to your application.
Note: The JS Libraries section only appears in the Application Setting page after a user creates a JS library.
You can create a new JS library at the My Account page.
