Description

emotion

V‑Cloud, V‑Blaze

boolean

true, false (default)

If set to true, Voci’s emotion detection feature uses a synthesis of acoustic features and word sentiment scores to determine if a given utterance is Strongly Positive, Positive, Neutral, Negative, or Strongly Negative.

Emotion detection is a licensed optional feature.

gender

V‑Cloud, V‑Blaze

boolean

true, false (default)

Set gender=true to activate gender detection. For each utterance, Voci will attempt to determine if the speaker is male or female.

Gender Identification is a licensed optional feature.

rawemotion

V‑Blaze

boolean

true, false

If set to "true", includes "emotion only" information in the results. Possible return values are NEUTRAL and ANGRY. If an utterance is too short for emotion detection, this tag will be set to "null." This parameter is useful for debugging and tuning and should not be used in the production flow.

raw_events

V‑Blaze only

boolean

true, false

Includes an additional "raw_events" list in the JSON output under utterances. This includes silence, filler words, wordex, and un-punctuated text. This parameter is useful for debugging and tuning and should not be used in the production flow.

senti_rules

V‑Cloud, V‑Blaze v5.6+

string

Specifies a newline-escaped string that contains the sentiment rules to use. This option enables you to augment the default sentiment rules that are used. Rules specified with the senti_rules tag are applied after any rules in the files identified by the senti_list tag. See senti_rules for additional information.
