Exchange Server 2010 SP1 UM Language Packs v14.01.0218.015

Estão disponíveis para download os Exchange Server 2010 SP1 UM Language Packs version 14.01.0218.015.

Brief Description
These downloads contain pre-recorded prompts, grammar files, text to speech data, Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) files, and Voice Mail Preview capabilities for a specific language that is supported by Exchange 2010 SP1 Unified Messaging (UM). Warning: This UM language pack must only be installed as an add-in to Exchange Server 2010 SP1 Unified Messaging.

Overview
Unified Messaging (UM) language packs allow an Exchange Server 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) UM server to speak additional languages to callers and recognize other languages when callers use ASR or when voice messages are transcribed. UM language packs contain:

  • Pre-recorded prompts, for example "After the tone, please record your message. When you’ve finished recording, hang up, or press the # key for more options." in the language of the UM language pack.
  • Grammar files that are used by a UM server to lookup the names of given users in the directory in the language of the UM language pack.
  • Text to Speech (TTS) translation so that content (e-mail, calendar, contact information, etc.) can be read to callers in the language of the UM language pack.
  • Support for Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), which allows callers to interact with UM using the voice user interface (VUI) in the language of the UM language pack.
  • Support for Voice Mail Preview which allows users to read the transcript of voice mail messages in a specific language from within a supported e-mail client such as Outlook or Outlook Web Access.

Instructions
Download the file and use Exchange Server 2010 SP1 setup to install the UM language pack.
Example:
Setup.com /AddUmLanguagePack:UmLanguagePackName /s: d:\MyLocalFolder
