  • Sets the text-to-speech (TTS) language and voice to use for the contact flow.

  • The default voice is configured to Joanna (Conversational speaking style), an Amazon Polly Neural Text-to-Speech (NTTS) voice. Neural voices make automated conversations sound more lifelike by improving the pitch, inflection, intonation, and tempo.

    For a list of supported neural voices, see Neural Voices in the Amazon Polly Developer Guide.

  • After this block is run, any TTS invocation resolves to the neural or standard voice selected.

  • If this block is triggered during a chat conversation, the contact goes down the Success branch. It has no effect on the chat experience.
