Hi Michael, and Shane

Thank you very much for your answers.

first of all, i'm not happy with a platform specific attribute, so 
that's why i sent this email. (if W3C staff write non-standard code 
where do we go ? :) )

Then, i don't want to turn barge-in to false for my second prompt. I 
just want to let the user know that he is entering a new prompt. He may 
decide or not to skip it, but he should be aware of it.

If i understand correctly what you are saying, just adding something like

<form id="eat">
<prompt bargein="false" cond="true">
           <audio src="silence.wav" />
          <goto next="#form2" />

which would play a 1s silence is enough to clear the dtmf buffer ?

I will try.

For now, my solution was not that different

<form id="eat">
<field name="barge" type="digits">
<property name="interdigittimeout" value="1s"/>
<prompt bargein="true" cond="true" timeout="0s">
         	<goto next="#form2" />
         	<goto next="#form2" />

even if a bit more complex.

In all case, it seems a bit ugly to me to have to add specific piece of 
codes to do something which seems quite natural.

Anyway, i've all the info i needed: a nicer solution, and the 
confirmation that there is no other option.

thanks again !
