Autopilot: Barge-in

“Barge-in” is a feature of Autopilot Voice that allows users to interrupt Virtual Agents during an interaction to speed up the interaction, and to give a command or response.  

This feature can be used to quickly ask a question without having to wait for the Autopilot to finish playing back a lengthy prompt.
