Text Variation

Updated on December 12, 2022

Adding different text response allows the virtual assistant to randomly pick a response to return to the end-user.

How is this useful?

Having different responses helps the bot to sound more lively.  This is commonly used for small talk modules like emotions to give a variation in answers.

Examples of text variation:

  • Would you mind asking that again with more detail?
  • Please tell me a bit more so I can help you better.
  • Say a few more words about what you’re looking for, so I can find something more useful for you.
