Retreive sound file previously streamed to Watson Speech-to-Text

When working on improving our product, we'd like to capture field failures that could be used to train our custom speech-to-text model.  We have a wake word (handled locally) and then we establish a connection to IBM Watson's Speech-to-Text service for a more complicated command.  If the command was not understood, there are four possibilities:

1) User error - invalid or no command

2) User changed his mind after saying wake word - no command

3) Wake Word detection error - the wake word heard but not actually said, so no command was issued

4) Command detections error - Watson didn't correctly understand what the user said

Being able to retrieve from Watson, after the fact, interesting sound files could help us find things that fall into case #4 and help us train our custom model better.

    Okay. Thanks for considering and recommending an alternative.

    No plan - Recommendation is to rely on other external components like Voice Gateway which can capture incoming audio recordings
