Speaking numbers, dates and times
SQLphone has built-in logic to speak numbers/dates/times in English, using fixed pre-recorded words (also called standard prompts).
For example, to speak the number 123, SQLphone speaks 5 words: one-hundred-and-twenty-three
To speak numbers/dates/times in a non-English language, we developed "language plugins"...
About language plugins
A SQLphone language plugin contains grammatical rules about how to speak numbers/dates/times in a particular language, by playing simple words in sequence. For example, to speak 21 in English needs 2 words: twenty-one. To speak 21 in French requires 3 words: twenty-and-one (translated, of course). The grammatical rules about how individual words are chained together in English, is already built-in to SQLphone. Plugins do the same for other languages.
