Africa's Talking Voice

Africa's Talking Voice offers a powerful API to build dynamic, scalable, fully-featured voice applications that reside entirely in the cloud without the need to purchase and maintain expensive voice equipment. This connector offers an operation to initiate a call to multiple recipients, providing a couple of voice actions that specify how the call should be handled.

Pre-requisites

In order to use this connector, you will need the following:

  • An account with Africa's Talking; you can sign up here.
  • A live production application; you can create one after registering.
  • A live phone number on this application; you can request for one by sending an email to voice@africastalking.com

Once you've signed up and you've created a live application, generate a new API Key for that application; you will use this key to authenticate your requests from this connector.

How to get credentials?

This connector uses API Key authentication (see steps above on how to obtain one). When creating a new connector (in Power Apps/Logic Apps), you'll be required to provide an API Key.

Known issues and limitations

This connector currently only works with production ready applications, so DO NOT use the default sandbox application's API key.

The operation to make outbound calls only supports two action types for now: Play and Say. You can read more about these supported voice actions here.
