To Barge-In Or Not To Barge-In Barge-in -- the ability to interrupt a system prompt with voice or DTMF input -- is a very useful tool that the Voice User Interface (VUI) designer can tap into to effectively adapt to various exchange settings the system may need to navigate.
Usually, the barge-in should be turned on for such prompts, thus giving the caller the ability to speak or enter their selection as soon as they hear it.
In addition to the caller's level of expertise, the environment from which they are calling, and the content and nature of the prompts the system is playing, a fourth dimension the VUI designer must keep in mind is the conversational context - i.e., where in the structure of the application is the call.

The purpose of this event is to construct a barge using aluminum foil that can support the greatest number of cargo pieces before the barge sinks.
The last piece of cargo loaded that causes the barge to sink will be subtracted from the total before the final scoring calculation is made.
As an example, if the team predicts their barge will hold 70 pieces and it sinks when the 57th piece is loaded, their score will be (56 x 10) – (70-56) = 546 points.

 Barge-in
Barge-in, also called "allow interrupt" or "recognize during prompt," is the ability of the system to allow callers to interrupt or barge in during voice playback by speaking a vocabulary word.
Barge-in operates for speech much like the talkoff option does for touchtone input, where a caller can interrupt the prompt by pressing a touchtone key on the telephone keypad.
For an application using speech recognition with barge-in, callers who choose to talk over the prompt message can not barge-in until most of the digit string is spoken.

WASHINGTON - A loose barge may have caused a large breach in the east side of the Industrial Canal floodwall that accelerated Hurricane Katrina's rising floodwaters in the Lower Ninth Ward and St. Bernard Parish, Army Corps of Engineers project manager Al Naomi said Monday.
Naomi said the barge was found on the land side of the floodwall, leading corps officials to believe it could have crashed through the wall and sent a huge amount of water - which was already pouring over the top of the wall - into the neighborhoods immediately downriver.
Naomi said that there were small pontoon barges in the 17th Street canal to the north of the Hammond Highway Bridge.
