I want to be able to send, for example, an SMS reformatted to plain text to AVS and get the response in text format? Do-able?
Thanks for posting! Both ASK and AVS are voice based, therefore what you describe is not doable at the moment. However, please take a look at the preview of Amazon Lex and see if that's something that could be helpful for your use case: https://aws.amazon.com/lex/
