IVR via ASR in Dialplan

"IVR via ASR with Directory" Dialplan application extends the capabilities of the application "Dial by name / Directory" and allows you to create IVRs with voice control.

A customer can pronounce the first and last name of an employee with whom he wants to contact, or say one of the keywords configured in Dialplan. After that, the call is transferred to the specified employee / Dialplan number.

Requirements

Configuration


VariableValuesDescription
1ASR_IVR_PROMPTstringallows overriding the welcome message of the original application. For example, "Please say the name and surname of the person you are looking for. Or, sales, support, or administration."
2ASR_IVR_PATTERN_Xstring (keyword1, keyword2, number)where X is the ordinal number of the rule: 1,2,3 etc (note: the pattern numbers should be placed in the numerical order). The variables are used to set keyword lists. Keywords are listed separated by commas. The last value is the number to which the call will be transferred if the recognized text matches one of the keywords (the current procedure is used by default; to change the destination procedure, use variable ASR_IVR_DIALPLAN)
3ASR_IVR_DIALPLANstring (Dialplan procedure name)allows changing the destination procedure for the numbers, specified in ASR_IVR_PATTERN_X
4ASR_DIALBYNAMEyes (default) / noallows/ forbids searching by first and last name of employees
5ASR_IVR_ATTEMPTSnumber (default value = 3)allows changing the number of failed attempts to recognize before moving to the next application

In case you need to use the feature in other languages, add "Set" - "Language" before "Play sound" application and edit your voice prompts inside the applications, example:


Currently available languages in "Set" - "Language" application: en, en-us, it, fr, de.
