Parser Settings

Parse your articles automatically. Set up specific rules for how BotTalk should parse your articles.

BotTalk Parser to work correctly, you must first configure it appropriately.

  1. Activate the BotTalk parser by checking the checkbox: Enable automatic parsing of articles.

  2. Enter your website URL.

  3. Set the starting date. BotTalk Parser will convert all articles published after this date into speech. The parser will ignore all articles published before this date.

  4. Update speech on article text change: a news article gets updated on average 2,8 times. Please check this checkbox if you want to keep your written articles in synch with the audio editions.

Setting the Include articles published after field is essential. If set incorrectly, you run into the risk of high TTS costs due to the audification of the whole archive of your website.
