I set up a .call file which works fine except for when I use
; testing festival (text-to-speech app)
exten => 555,1,Answer
exten => 555,2,Festival(mary had a little lamb) ; do NOT use quotes around the string! if you use commas, you will have to escape them with a “” (backslash).
exten => 555,3,Hangup
this is from voip-info.org/wiki-Asterisk+ … stallation
the system hangs up at step 2 every time. problem is I can’t check the festival_server.log file because I don’t seem to have one on my system! I’m running asterisk on Ubuntu 6.06 and when I run locate it doesn’t find the file anywhere… does this mean I loaded festival incorrectly? I called sudo apt-get install festival to load it. I installed it using method 1 from the site i just mentioned voip-info.org/wiki-Asterisk+ … stallation
