Asterisk + Festival

Hey everybody,

I’m a newB over here. I’ve installed Asterisk(1.2.4) on a Fedora Core 4 OS and combined it with the Festival TTS.
I have some trouble using Festival!
I execute the Festival server before execute the Asterisk one.
When I do my Dialplan :

exten => 1111,1,Answer()
exten => 1111,2,Festival(Hello)
exten => 1111,3,Hangup

No words nothing!!

In Asterisk consol I can see :

Executing Answer(....
Executing Festival(....
Parsing '/etc/asterisk/festival.conf': Found

And then, the Hangup! I don’t know what is going on…
If somebody can help…??

However, I heard that I rather use the text2wav but I’ve no information about!

If somebody could give me some diaplan with the text2wav… With the configurations files I’ve got to change or something!

Thanks for your help!

PEACE!! :smiley: :wink:
