Asterisk Voice Prompts Dragging/Garbled


I just installed asterisk and it seemed to install OK.

However, when I dial my extension (to setup my voicemail greetings), the voice of the lady that does asterisk prompts is dragging (Slow) and garbled.

Any ideas of what could cause this?


Most likely this is a timing issue. Do you have any hardware installed to use as a timing device? If not, make sure that your are using a reliable timing source. This will cause so much headache and randomness if you do not configure it properly. I had a conference room set up and working but had a lot of delay due to the same issue. It didn’t garble the call, it simply delayed the playback between speakers by 2 seconds. This was annoying until I fixed the timing issue.
