All Voice mail messages have Low volume

The volume in every voice message is very low.
This is the case with every user’s mailbox.

Where do I change the settings to increase this?

Increase the amplitude of the sound file
by using sox and converting it to ulaw.

or have a look at CLI > show application VoiceMail where you can use the ‘g’ option to increase the gain whilst recording.


CLI > show application VoiceMail

Leave a Voicemail message

  VoiceMail(mailbox[@context][&mailbox[@context]][...][|options]): This
application allows the calling party to leave a message for the specified
list of mailboxes. When multiple mailboxes are specified, the greeting will
be taken from the first mailbox specified. Dialplan execution will stop if the
specified mailbox does not exist.
  The Voicemail application will exit if any of the following DTMF digits are
    0 - Jump to the 'o' extension in the current dialplan context.
    * - Jump to the 'a' extension in the current dialplan context.
  This application will set the following channel variable upon completion:
    VMSTATUS - This indicates the status of the execution of the VoiceMail
               application. The possible values are:
               SUCCESS | USEREXIT | FAILED

    b    - Play the 'busy' greeting to the calling party.
    g(#) - Use the specified amount of gain when recording the voicemail
           message. The units are whole-number decibels (dB).
    s    - Skip the playback of instructions for leaving a message to the
           calling party.
    u    - Play the 'unavailable greeting.
    j    - Jump to priority n+101 if the mailbox is not found or some other
           error occurs.

I understand this but how do I set the decibel value.
What is the command?
I don’t know how to issue the “voicemail g9” command.

exten => 1234,1,VoiceMail(user@context,g9) should do it
