RE: BS4-1-1-0 Vibs dialog enunciating wrong canidate names
Yes, you got it
seem the message "to cancel your vote for" is keyed to the fact that the
voter has just voted a candidate or issue, however it is not the
interrupt, it is a secondary informative message, and so by current design,
is aborted by a new keyboard/keypad event.
Suggestion, issue a confirmation that a keyboard interrupt has
occurred, ""beep"System playback interrupted" or ""beep"Message playback
or ""beeep" "6" key
Followed by "NEW
ACTION" in this case "The next candidate is "NAME"".
additional verbiage would only be necessary for interrupted system playback of
secondary informative messages.
The "advance to
next candidate key" is 6, not 5.
Nel and I have
played around with it for a bit, and have come to the conclusion that you are
pressing 5 to vote for (or cancel your vote for) for a candidate. At
this point it says "to cancel your vote for" and should say Ken Clark.
But before it says Ken Clark, you press 6, and advance to the next
candidate. At that point it says "Jeff Hallmark", because you are now on
the next candidate. If you time it just right, the sentence gets strung
together as "you have canceled your vote for...Jeff Hallmark", which is
obviously not the case. Please confirm that this is the correct
interpretation of your message.
This is currently
by design. The user selected next, we cut off whatever was playing and
immediately speak the next candidate or race audio. Now, having played
the sequence I can see that it could be confusing. I am
not sure: the user did press the 6 key after all. I'm open to
suggestions on how to improve this though. We might for example play the
number key they just pressed "6" before playing the candidate name. That
would break up the (misinterpreted) sentence at least. Or maybe
just a beep would help. Thoughts?
Vibs dialog enunciating wrong canidate names if voter presses the
"advance to next canidate key" #5.
Voter votes for candidate, for instance Ken
Then if the voter pauses, the system instructs the
voter "to cancel your vote for" and then should append "Ken
which it does, as long as the voter doesn't press
At any time the during the system instruction "to cancel your vote
for" if the voter presses the #5 key, the pointer to canidate "Ken
Clark" is lost.
If you time it right the instruction "to cancel
your vote for" will actually speak the next canidates
For example "to cancel your vote for" #5
pressed, then the system appends next canidates name
not the one that they actually voted.
