Definition: voice response

The generation of voice output by computer. It provides prerecorded information either with or without selection by the caller. The voice is typically segments of digitized human voice that are strung together to make sentences, but it could be synthesized voice. As the technology matures, totally synthetic voices are sounding much more natural. Interactive voice response (IVR) allows interactive manipulation of a database. See IVR.
