Asterisk and Speechify

Have anyone got any clues on how to configure speechify (tts) with asterisk?

the wiki is your friend:

Thanks, but i’m trying to use speechify tts, not the festival.

The poor man’s way to do it might involve piping the Speechify audio to disk and using Playback() to get it onto a channel. This wouldn’t be a performance marvel in my estimation, but it would be a start.

Festival works well because kind folks took the time to integrate it into Asterisk. In order to approach the level of functionality available in Festival, you’d end up writing a lot of code to support ScanSoft’s product. AGI is your friend.

Just curious, do they even offer a Linux version of Speechify? If not, you’ve got some socket programming in your future…
