The following additional voice-specific options apply to Outvoice only: 

 -ivr (and -noivr)   : [default is -ivr]
                        Play interactive voice response messages
                        around your message to ensure successful
                        receipt. Recipient is prompted to press "1"
                        to accept, "2" to decline, or "3" to be called
                        back. "*" aborts and returns success after 
                        acceptance. -noivr prevents the use of the IVR 

 -wait (and -nowait) : [default is -wait]
                        Wait to hear a sound from the callee before
                        proceeding through the message playing. Callers will
                        typically say "Hello", which will prompt OutVoice to 
                        commence transmission of the given message. -nowait 
                        will prevent this initial wait. (Generally used with 
                        the -pause command to hard code a fixed dial/ring 

 -pause [seconds]    : [default is 9 seconds]
                        Time (in seconds) to pause before playing message.
                        (Applicable only when using -nowait option).

 -voice [voice]      : [options are 'female' (default) and 'male']
                        Use either a male or female voice during
                        text-to-speech (TTS) synthesis.

 -maxplays [plays]   : [default is 5 plays]
                        Maximum number of times the system will play the
                        message (in the event the recipient did not press
                        "1" or the system was unable to connect; also limits
                        the number of times the recipient may press "3" to 
                        replay the message).

 -wava               : [defaults to ignore WAV attachments]
                        Similar to -doca in the OutFax(sm) Service,
                        denoting a WAV audio file attachment. No argument 
                        is taken with -wava ; -wava tells Outvoice to expect
                        an attached WAV audio file in the body of the message.
