[Freeswitch-users] Am I using play_and_detect_speech correctly?

Many thanks, Chris!

I will have tries on it later on.

In my original question regarding to too many network connections/much traffic issues,
I re-setup the destination machine OS the problem seems to have been solved.

So the play_and_detect_speech APP look likes working fine, so I have not yet tried the workaround 
by issuing "detect_speech pause". I will try it later if there was something unusual happening 
to me after more tests.

So for now I think the problem has been resolved.

Thanks again!

The basic procedure for barge in is:

1. detect_speech unimrcp
2. playback say:please say yes or no. please say no or yes. please say
3. handle begin-speaking event
4. break
5. when playback finishes...  detect_speech start_input_timers
6. handle detected-speech event

This is pretty much what play_and_detect_speech already does... see
switch_ivr_play_and_detect_speech() in switch_ivr_async.c if you know C.
