Prompts are speech topics shown during a Recording. A user can choose to be shown either a random prompt or one from a specified category. They can also choose between a single prompt or a prompt sequence, which is multiple prompts connected together with a title and category.

A prompt can be shown at the start of a Recording, or at any time after a Recording starts.

A prompt either has a set answer time or can be indefinite.

Ovation comes with its own collection of prompts available to all users. Custom prompt collections can be created by individual users and organizations on the web portal.
