I need to configure a sound card on every asterisk box I produce.
Therefore I need to understand what a ‘console’ is as regards a sound card.
Here’s a quote from the debugging asterisk page on voip-info.org.
“Asterisk will normally grab the sound card and use it as the console voice i/o”
In that sentence, what does ‘console voice i/o’ refer to?
Is this referring to the voice input/output that one would normally interact with through a linux gui app such as an audio playback program?
If so, in what sense does asterisk’s console have a ‘voice’?
