Language Identifier

Reference Number: AA-00616 Views: 3414 0 Rating/ Voters

A language identifier is part of the grammar header that specifies the language to be used when performing decodes.

The format of the language identifier follows the convention set out by RFC 3066. In a nutshell, the identifier is a language and country pair, like "en-US" for United States English. For more information, see Working With Languages.

The LumenVox Speech Engine currently supports the following languages:

Digits-only Grammars

Prior to version 9.1, LumenVox supported a non-standard language type with a suffix of "-di" to indicate the language only included digits.

This functionality is now obsolete, as the Engine will automatically determine when it should use a digits-only acoustic model. If you specify a language with a suffix of "-di" it will    be ignored by the Engine in any release starting with version 9.1.
