Dialog is a perfect format to carry the speaking activity. It is natural and close to the modern way that people chat in the apps. You can easily create a dialog and send it to students for roleplay.

1. Create a dialog step
A Dialog is just like other Steps, you can add a dialog by clicking the add button and choose dialog


2. Setup roles
There are at least two roles.
You must give them a name
You can optionally choose an avatar from your assets for each role. If you don't choose one, the name initial will be used
You can choose the Text-to-speech voice gender. If you don't override it in the sentence configuration, speech synthesis will be used
Finally, setup the initial student role and difficulty. There are three difficulties.
Easy: the student will see the whole sentence to read-aloud while they play the audio and speak
Medium: the student will see the who sentence while they play the audio, but only keywords you specify when they speak
Hard: the student will see only keywords

You can optionally allow user to switch roles.

Input the sentence to read-aloud
