For the Alexa prize, will we have access to the voice inputs as an audio file?

To properly respond with the Alexa social bot, we would like to analyze the voice input. I understand that this is not currently available to developers but am wondering if it might be available in the Alexa prize SDK.

At this time, we will only be providing this level of detail to the teams selected to compete in the Alexa Prize challenge. However, according to the contest rules, "Entrant Teams whose Socialbots are made available on Alexa will also receive automatic speech recognition text transcriptions and other data (e.g., confidence scores) relating to Alexa user interactions with Entrant Team’s Socialbot (“Interaction Data”).”
