I’m not sure if I formulated the question well enough. I hope you will understand.
What is the best way to ‘redirect’ the sound of a phone call to the sound card?
The situation is as follows - I need to set up a server which will notify loudly some group of people in the room, where it will be located.
So, after some extension is dialed, this Asterisk/softphone answers automatically, and everything that is said to the dialed extension, will be heard by the audience.
I’m not sure if Asterisk is the right solution, maybe some softphone will be OK (we have the ‘main’ Asterisk server where extensions are stored in the config file).
Maybe all I need - is to know how to forward all output sound to the sound card. If I’m not mistaken , chan_oss is able to do something like this. Is there any easier and more simple way to achieve the result ?
Say, that extension is . When somebody dials , that PC with Asterisk/softphone answers automatically and everybody hear what is said to that channel.
Share your ideas please. Any of them will be useful!
