The file optionally named as the last parameter on the $type studio command is either an algorithm file or a simple ASCII file. For .ALG files, the script displayed on the screen will be the text to the right of the message filename, up to the semi-colon comment, if any. The message filename must be shown in upper-case with leading zeros (e.g. 00000019.VOX), unless a prefix has been given on the $type studio command in which case no leading zeros are used.

If the list file filetype is not .ALG, the file format should consist of a series of text blocks separated by blank lines. The first line of the block should contain the actual filename recorded in the same format as described above. In the case of system messages, the filename can be either SVPn (without leading zeros) or FAXMSG.n, even though the FAXMSG.n form is no longer created by the CopiaFacts Recording Studio. Other messages can be entered as n.VOX (with leading zeros), or the .VOX extension can be omitted. This line should immediately be followed by the text of the message, which may be entered on multiple lines. A blank line must follow before the next message block. For example:

SVP19

Please enter a routing or telephone number

extension to be used to identify your fax request.

To skip, press #.

SVP20

If the routing information you entered is correct,

press 1, otherwise press 0.

If you do not specify a listing file, only IIF scripts will be displayed on the screen during recording studio operations.
