Using Abbreviations in Names

Because the values you enter in name fields determine both what a user can say in a voice command and also how the Genie will pronounce names to a user, be careful when you enter abbreviations. Follow these rules to ensure that you enter abbreviations correctly:

If you follow these rules, the Genie will always say what you intended. If you do not follow these rules, you may unintentionally create problems. The third-party software Vocera uses to provide text-to-speech translation may incorrectly interpret a string of capital letters as either an abbreviation or a word, depending on the number of letters in the string.
