Conversational Supports

Alpha Core includes three types of conversational supports, which you can access from the Topics grid.

The messages on each of the following grids are spoken immediately and do not get added to the chat area. This means you can use them even when you are in the middle of writing another message in the chat area. Jump from your keyboard to any of these three grids, speak a message, then jump back to your keyboard to continue writing your message.
