problem speaking with cepstral voice in xml ivr menu

Alexander de Greiff
hi all,

here is my second problem trying to migrate from * to fs:

i can speak with cepstral voices from my dialplan, but when i implement an ivr menu with cepstral voices like this:

     <menu name="demo3"
        greet-long="say:text to speak"
        greet-short="say:main menu"
        invalid-sound="say:invalid entry"
        exit-sound="say:goodbye"
        timeout ="10000"
        max-failures="3"
        tts-engine="cepstral"
        tts-voice="allison"
        phrase_lang="en">
           <entry action="menu-exit" digits="*"/>
           <entry action="menu-back" digits="5"/>
     </menu>


i get the following errors:

[ERR] mod_native_file.c:68 native_file_file_open() Error opening /usr/local/freeswitch/sounds/en/us/callie/say:text to speak.GSM


can you point me in the right direction?

thanks
alex

Alex,
        If you want to update to svn trunk the tts-engine and tts-voice are  
now valid options on the menu.  They were not before (But the wiki  
said they were).  So to cut confusion I made them work... if you do  
not wish to upgrade you'll need to set the tts_engine and tts_voice  
variables before you call the IVR application and it will work with  
the code you already have.   I highly recommend a "make curret"  ;)

brian,

thanks for your help. i really apreciate the active support.

upgrading to the current trunk solved the problem. i can hear the cepstal voices in the ivr menus now.
(with the current trunk i have all sorts of other compile problems (mod_fax, python) but i will work this out following the build instructions again). i only wonder because these worked with my last version of last week.

so far i am a happy camper with freeswitch. this is a different snack bracket than asterisk...


kind regards
alex

If you don't mind telling us, where did you hear about FS and what
made you decide to try it? Are you unhappy with Asterisk or are you
simply looking for something a bit different? Just curious.

Thanks,
MC

michael,

i googled for "asterisk alternative" and voila...
the trigger was that every now and then i renew servers in the infrastructure and the one with asterisk was overdue. i wasn't really unhappy with asterisk, but these things bothered me (maybe i am not up to date):

- dialplan gets messy
- no conferences without hardware (rented remote server!)
- ivr with cepstral voices: sometimes get hickups

so far i like the fs approach very much. stable sip channels, no hickups with voices.

kind regards
alex
