Hi Tobias,

Thanks a lot for your answer... that one clears some ideas around my mind.
My question was formulate because we are implementing a VoiceXML Browser and
one of our test application has a feature to test termchar property, and the
specification is not very specific with this case and we are trying to do
the Browser closer to the Specification.

I didn't test another VoiceXML Browser because we don't have the way to do
it, so if you could, please do it and tell me what is the result, I'd really
appreciate.

Hi,

good question!
I like the idea of interpreting it as noinput. Regarding your last
paragraph, I think you as the VXML developer would like to know if the user
pressed # or simply didnt press anything, for dialog flow purposes. And I
don't see a way to check this, either.
But I guess VXML browsers would NOT throw a noinput. Since the spec says
"the termchar is not included as part of the recognized value", they would
probably return an empty value but take the field as filled. I haven't
tested it yet. (Have you? I could, if you don't have ways to test it) You as
a programmer could then take over interpretation yourself: in the <filled>
section, if the result is empty, treat this appropriately dialogwise.

Betreff: Questions about termchar property



Hi everybody,

I have a question about the termchar property effect in a VoiceXML
Application.

In the Appendix D there some examples about the use of the termchar property
at the end of the input process.... but, what happend if you have defined,
for example, the termchar property like "#" and the first key pressed by the
user during a recognize proces (<field>) is "#"?

I have one idea, and please don't let me wrong, there will be a <noinput>
event. Is it the right way to intepretate this case? If so, I have another
question....

How the VoiceXML Browser know if the <noinput> event has been launched
because the user pressed as a first dtmf the termchar ("#") or because the
user didn't pressed anything and a timeout has generated the <noinput>
event? I thought use the application.lastresult$utterance variable but the
specification (in the section 5.1.5) say "In contrast, a <noinput> event
does not change the value of "application.lastresult$"." so my choice was
discarded.

I'd really appreciate any opinion about this question.
