Speech Recognition and Touchtone IVR Prompts

Great IVR prompts start with a great script.

Walsh Media Project Managers are experts in IVR call flow and scripting. We’ll help you optimize the caller experience with professionally recorded IVR prompts that get your customers the information they need quickly and easily.

We know you’ve invested a lot of time and money into your contact center, so put our decades of experience and best practices to work achieving a better return on that investment.


Is your company making these common IVR mistakes?

  • Callers hang up before getting help because menus are too long, complex, or confusing.
  • Callers continually ask for a representative after getting lost in too many options.
  • Callers cannot access a representative because your menu neither provides a way to do so, nor alerts callers to other channels of support (chat, website, etc.).
  • Callers can’t relate to the voice of your current IVR.

We can help you avoid IVR problems and pitfalls that
frustrate callers and damage your brand.

Our script consulting services enhance the efficiency of your self-service applications, while maintaining your call flow.

We evaluate your verbiage and offer suggestions based on our years of industry know-how and best practices. We help you keep your verbiage clear, concise, and conversational.


Once your initial recordings are completed, our voice coaching and reference audio helps ensure a consistent sound each time you need to make updates.

Yes. If you need your script translated, we can provide provide an estimate of that charge in your quote. Please note, pricing is based on the final number of translated words (not on the number of English words that need translating).

For most projects, we ask for five business days to get your script recorded and edited into your final format. If more time might be required, we will let you know ahead of time.

Our usual turnaround time is 5 business days, but if you need your project completed more quickly, let your Project Manager know. Our studio will check the talent’s availability. Expedite fees will apply. 

You should be able to get this information from your IT Department or Phone Vendor. Please note that we need more than just the file type (ie: .wav file.) We need the file specs required by your phone system. Phone system file specs will look something like this: 8k 8 bit mono .wav or something similar.
