What are scenes?

Scenes are an easy way to author content for any voice experience. A user scene can be any sample dialog between a user and your application. For example, a scene can be a specific situation the user finds themself in. It can be as long or as short as you'd like and only focuses on the content, so no need to wire up any business logic in Jargon. That can be done in your application.

How do I get started using scenes?

In scenes, authors can write user dialog in a "user says, app says" format. These sample sets of dialog can be written for specific user scenarios and/or environments with explicit context for each scene. Context and tags can be added for organization of scenes and a voice simulator can be used for real-time quality checks. To begin using scenes, log into the platform and click on the scenes tab to begin.

How to write user scenes for voice apps?

Before adding the necessary mechanics and structure for the application, start with a simple dialog between the user and your application. Break the dialog down into individual scenes. The scene can have as many conversational turns as desired. Once the dialog is drafted, the responses can be connected to Jargon’s studio. Application mechanics, such as a response name and other response components, can be added to the response. Once changes are committed, the content can be released to Jargon’s content servers so it can be called at runtime. Support for the interaction model is coming soon.

How do I enhance a linked response?

After linking a response, click into the studio to find the speech component. Once a speech component is selected, enrich the response from the scene with additional components (visual/audio), variants, SSML, and more.

Why is linking scenes necessary?

Linking scenes to the studio allows for the necessary mechanics to be applied to the content in order for your application to deliver the content. For example, a response name, other response components, and additional variants can be added. The studio is also where additional detail can be applied to responses, such as variables, snippets, SSML tags and media assets. A linked scene also allows the entire team to gain contextual information of a specific response.
