I hope this newbie post is not too much of an affront to the posters here. I tried to read the forums and faqs first so as not to waste everyones time.
Here goes, just jump in with any answers or thoughts. Thanks!
IVR (Interactive Voice Response) - From what I gather, this is the right term for the feature of the “Menu System” that encompasses “Press 1 for voicemail …” "Press 2 for prerecorded instructions … " “Press 0 for a representative”. Is that what you call the menuing system? IVR? This is the feature I’m most interested in and it will help my research to get the terminology right.
How effective of a solution is Asterix to use it as a filter for home phone calls via Asterix@Home? Simply setting up a call screening system that says “Press 1 if you are a human who is not a telemarketer” whenever someone calls. Is there a name for that kind of screening? Are there turtorials for setting up such a stripped-down implementation of Asterix?
Thanks again everyone! Asterix is going to be huge when common folk realize what is possible!! It will be like MythTV or Freevo for your phone!!
