Audio file URL reads out letter by letter, rather than playing the audio

Justin Dupree -

If a URL is included in a say, but that URL is inaccessible, the URL will be recited utilizing TTS. For example, this:

say("Please wait while we transfer your call. Press star to cancel the transfer.");
transfer(["+14075551212","sip:12345678912@"], {
    playvalue: "",
    terminator: "*",
    onTimeout: function(event) {
        say("Sorry, but nobody answered");

Will read back "h t t p colon" and so on, since the URL is invalid.

Review this doc page for more info on hosting audio files with Tropo, since that's probably the most common instance where this happens:
