December 20th 2006 : New french voices services

123Messagepro.com offers a new Web service to create your own greeting message. With a new technology (TTS and music mixed together), you can have french and english messages. For the moment, there are only 2 languages (FR, UK/US) and 6 voices, but they'll add more voices for 2007. I found this web site very usefull, and I can get new messages in 2 sound format (MP3 and WAV) and only in 3 minutes.

December 2006: American English third-party sound files released

Voice Vector Media (http://www.VoiceVector.com) has released a free full voice-pack containing over 1,500 sound files intended to replace the default sound files distributed with Asterisk. The studio recordings are high-quality and feature a very pleasant and professional female voice speaking American English. These voice-packs are offered in Asterisk Native (sln) format, u-law, a-law, and GSM. Voice Vector Media also offers inexpensive custom recording services to extend and customize this voice-pack. The company's web site lists additional voice-packs in production for a male voice speaking American English and a female voice speaking British English. As of December 19, 2006, the company's website is offering custom recordings at half price.

June 2006: New Zealand voice prompts available

http://voiceprompt.archnetnz.com has provided anyone a free series of New Zealand english asterisk voice prompts.
A full list of files can be viewed here.
There is also a Sourceforge subversion area, where they are updated as people ask for changes or comments about them.

May 2006: British English voice prompts available

EniCommunications corp is kindly offering the Asterisk community a free series of British English recordings made by Alison Keenan (another Alison!) in various formats including SLIN, WAV, alaw, ulaw, gsm, g723 and g729. The files are of a high quality. You should make a copy of the original sound files beforehand as you may wish to copy back various ones (like the 'beeps') that aren't included with this new set - eg:

cd /var/lib/asterisk
mv sounds sounds.orig
mkdir sounds
mkdir sounds/custom (make this or freepbx complains)
cd sounds
tar xvfz /path/to/downloaded/sounds/file
(repeat tar for all downloaded files)
chown -R asterisk:asterisk ../sounds
(copy from sounds.orig all *beep* files and anything else you find missing)
amportal restart

To avoid having to go hunting for missing files, or to enable you to switch languages in channels you can do this:

Download and decompress all versions apart from the 44k wavs (I found tar did not recognise the file format and I had to use WinRAR)
mkdir /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/en_GB
move all files into en_GB, merging the files in each directory
chown -R asterisk:asterisk /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/en_GB
In sip_custom.conf add the line: language=en_GB
Restart

You can find the files here

Notes (based on Asterisk@home 2.8)

At the time of writing (30th May 2006):

  • The g729 download on the site seems to contain g723 files.

  • Some essential recordings are missing - for example, a couple for conferences, which can be fixed by issuing the following commands from the sounds directory:



cp conf-getpin.sln enter-conf-pin-number.sln
cp conf-getconfno.sln enter-conf-call-number.sln

  • "goodbye" is also missing but can be extracted from demo-thanks.wav using Audacity and then processed into an sln file with sox using the command: sox goodbye.wav -t raw -r 8000 -s -w -c 1 goodbye.sln

  • The speaking clock announcement is also missing but can be created by editing a copy of queue-holdtime.wav to make it say "The time is currently" and editing extensions_custom.conf to point to your new sln file created with sox.

  • One or more sound files for the voicemail service are missing and so voicemail hangs up when you try to listen to your messages.

The site owners have been informed of these issues and sent the missing sound files so things may be fixed by the time you download the tar files.

Jan 2006: Standard prompts now in native format (instead of GSM)

Asterisk Native Sounds are a collection of audio prompts for Asterisk. They will improve quality, reduce CPU usage, reduce latency, and (in some cases) eliminate the need for G729 licenses!
The Asterisk Native Sounds are a collection of alternative sounds prompts for Asterisk. Here's how it works. I had Allison Smith (the voice of Asterisk) re-record all of the sound prompts present in Asterisk 1.2. She provided them to me in the best audio format possible. I then converted them into several native Asterisk sound formats.

cd /var/lib/asterisk/
mv sounds sounds.orig
tar -xvjf /path/to/sounds.tar.bz2

(repeat last step for other formats)
The audio prompts are available from the "Extras" category in the Downloads section of astlinux.org.




Recording hints

If you want to record sound files with Asterisk, you may use the record application.
If you record in a studio, use 8kHz 16 bits, not 8 bits. The phone line is 12 to 13 bits compressed down to 8 in a pseudo-logarithmic way. If you start with 8 bit linear data it will sound considerably worse than 8 bit data, unless the volume is very uniform.

A very useful application is Audacity. This is open source (like Asterisk) and is used by professional musicians for recording. You can normalise the volume (make it a standard volume) and it is very good at removing background noise.

An alternative for Windows is WavePad Sound Editor for Windows. It is also free.

If you are lucky enough to have CoolEdit (now called Adobe Audition), you should record your source material using a high (at least 44Khz) sample rate, apply any filters or normalization that you want, then downsample your audio to 8000hz and save in Windows PCM wav (16 bit) format.

When recording find a really quiet place. Background noise is usually the biggest hassle when recording prompts. Other than that, use a reasonable mic; fix it down someplace (don't hand hold it); and get your "voice model" to sit comfortably, so they sound nice and relaxed. Choose a friend or colleague - someone easily accessible for more recordings when you realise you have forgotten some.

Developing IVR Menus: This page contains some hints for developing IVR menus which may be useful.

Tip: Transcoding consumes CPU power, so ideally you have your prompts in a file format that already matches the current channel's codec. Type show file formats at the Asterisk CLI to get an overview of the available formats.

Note: With Asterisk 1.2.x the transcoding behaviour changed: SLINEAR (signed linear) is now the "root" format and thus it is probably an excellent idea to encode your sound files as SLINEAR as well.



Adjusting the volume

After cutting the prompts and saving them (audacity works nice for that), this little script makes sure that all the voice prompts have more-or-less the same (maximum) volume:


  1. !/bin/sh
tmpfile=/tmp/rescale$$.wav
for i in *.wav; do
scale=$(sox "$i" /tmp/foo.wav stat -v 2>&1)
if [ $scale != "1.000" ]; then
echo -n "Rescale $i..."
cp "$i" $tmpfile
sox $tmpfile -v $scale "$i"

echo
fi
done


Creating GSM files with sox

This is how you convert wav files to gsm files used by Asterisk
$ sox inputfile.wav -r 8000 -c 1 outputfile.gsm resample -ql

Converting all files in a directory:
for i in *.wav; do sox $i -r 8000 -c 1 $(basename $i .wav).gsm resample -ql; done

sox has many features, I have found that when converting from
44 Khz wav files adding the option resample -ql gives the best results.

Mixing .wav files into a single .gsm:

exten => s,1,SetVar(MONITORDIR=/var/spool/asterisk/monitor)
exten => s,2,GotoIf($[${CALLFILENAME} = ${FOO}]?6:3)
exten => s,3,System(soxmix ${MONITORDIR}/${CALLFILENAME}-in.wav ${MONITORDIR}/${CALLFILENAME}-out.wav ${MONITORDIR}/${CALLFILENAME}.gsm)
exten => s,4,System(/bin/rm ${MONITORDIR}/${CALLFILENAME}-in.wav ${MONITORDIR}/${CALLFILENAME}-out.wav)
exten => s,5,NoOp

If you'd like to use sox to simply examine a sound file use this little snippet (of course .raw files won't return much info because the don't have any describing headers embedded in the file):

sox -V file.wav -e stat (with latest version of sox : "sox -V file.wav -n")

Creating GSM files with gstreamer


gst-launch filesrc location="input.mp3" ! spider ! volume volume=0.6 ! audioconvert ! audioscale ! audio/x-raw-int,channels=1,rate=8000 ! gsmenc ! filesink location="output.gsm"

Joining files


cat 1.gsm 2.gsm 3.gsm > new.gsm

Editing files

On Win32, a utility which can edit .gsm files direct is WavePad
Alternatively view http://www.objectivevoice.com/addcodec95.html on how to install gsm codec on Win95/98 and then play it with sndrec32 or some such...plays natively on my windows boxes...


Tools for converting GSM files


Playing GSM files on Windows

First of all take a look at WavePad.
Playing GSM files can also be done using freely available Quicktime player.
Moreover you can use this free Winamp plugin http://www.mlkj.net/gsm/winamp_plugin_gsm_codec.php
Another useful tool is j2 messenger.
Java applet for playing gsm files in a web browser http://www.westhawk.co.uk/software/playGSM/PlayGSM.html
Flash-based player, able to playback all asterisk-recorded formats including gsm can be found there

Location of the sound files

Asterisk normally looks for a sound file with an extension used for the codec used. If a language is set for the channel with the SetLanguage() application, Asterisk first looks for countrycode/filename where countrycode is the language code (example:. 'fr' for french). Languages and special tones for that country or region are defined in indications.conf.

Performance improvements

  • Store the voice prompts in RAM instead of harddisk: Take a look at ramfs (even more on ramfs). All you need then is to create a link (ln -s) in /var/lib/asterisk/sound to then ramdrive you created using ramfs.
  • A modern operating system (e.g. Linux) caches often used files in RAM, mitigating this optimization. You might need it if you are accessing lots of different files and the disk cache expires. Perform some tests to see if this is a bottleneck before making your setup more complicated.

AGI enhancements

asterisk-agi-audiotx

This is an extension module for the Asterisk Gateway Interface (AGI) that adds commands to allow the transfer of audio files to and from Asterisk via the AGI session. This is useful when using FastAGI from a remote host; sounds recorded by Asterisk may be retrieved by remote FastAGI-providing service, for example, or sound files required by the remote service may be dynamically added to the Asterisk server.
This module adds the following AGI commands:
  • PUT SOUNDFILE <soundfile> <size>
  • GET SOUNDFILE <soundfile>
  • ISEXISTING SOUNDFILE <soundfile>


Sound file listing

The following files are included in the Asterisk distribution in the directory /var/lib/asterisk/sounds
The text of the sound files can be found in sounds.txt or core-sounds-en.txt (or /usr/share/doc/asterisk-sounds-main/sounds.txt.gz).

Here's yet another transcription of sound files to be found:

  • demo-congrats: Congratulations. You have successfully installed and executed the Asterisk open source PBX. You have also installed a set of sample sounds and configuration files that should help you to get started. Like a normal PBX you will navigate this demonstration by dialing digits. If you are using a console channel driver instead of a real phone you can use the dial, answer, and hang up commands to simulate the actions of a standard telephone.
  • demo-echodone: The echo test has been completed.
  • demo-echotest: You are about to enter an echo test. In this mode everything you say will be repeated back to you just as soon as it is received. The purpose of this test is to give you an audible sense of the latency between you and the machine that is running the echo test application. You may end the test by hanging up or by pressing the pound key.
  • demo-enterkeywords: Please enter one or more keywords separated by * and then press the pound key.
  • demo-instruct: If you would like to learn more technical information about Asterisk dial 2 now. If you'd like to test out the voice over IP capabilities of Asterisk you can dial 500 to attempt an Inter-Asterisk Exchange or IAX connection to a demonstration server at Digium. In order for this test to work you will need to be connected to the Internet and have at least a 28.8 kilobit modem. To execute an echo test dial 600. This test is most useful when you have connected to this Asterisk server from a remote location. The sample configuration also has a single user with extension 1234 and password 4242. That user is configured to ring the console when their extension is dialed. If you dial 1234 you can try to ring the console. If the console is busy or unavailable you will be given the option to leave voicemail. To check voice mail for the user dial extension 8500 to enter the voicemail system. Finally, you can press the pound key to disconnect from the PBX.
