IVR Samples Library - Outbound IVR: Multiple Language Message
IVR Studio is fully integrated with Voicent BroadcastByPhone Autodialer. You can design your outbound message using IVR Studio. This sample shows the design of an outbound
message that supports multiple languages - when a call is answered by a live human, the system plays a message in both English and Spanish asking the person called to select his language choice. If
he chooses English, a English version of the message is played; and if he chooses Spanish, a Spanish version of the message is played.
This sample is also captured in the following video demo:

The Call Flow
The call flow is straightforward for this sample. For outbound call, IVR studio automatically creates two elements, Live Answer and Answering Machine, under the top node. These two nodes represent two sub-designs,
one for calls answered by live human, and the other for calls answered by answering machines or voicemail systems.
The Live Answer branch consists of one Choice Element and a two Prompt Elements. The Choice Element lets the user to select the preferred language, and the two prompt elements play the
corresponding message in the chosen language. The Answering Machine branch, the prompt element labeled Play Both plays the message in both English and Spanish.
You can open this design by selecting Library > Multiple Language from the program main menu.
