I am attempting to get call files to work within my freePBX system, and am trying to use Festival to provide text-to-speech capabilities. I've gotten basic call files to work, where it simply plays back an existing sound file, but I need to be able to "read" a generated piece of text.

I believe everything is set up OK, but when I attempt to run a call file using festival, I get the call, pick up, and then it is immediately disconnected. Below is the output in the Asterisk log file when it does this:
Code:
-- Attempting call on SIP/XXXX for application Festival('doctor jason is in') (Retry 1)
> Channel SIP/XXXX-0959f328 was answered.
> Launching Festival('the doctor is in') on SIP/XXXX-0959f328
== Parsing '/etc/asterisk/festival.conf': Found
In festival.conf, I've got the temp directory enabled, and set to /tmp/ I've also checked in the festival_server.log, and there's nothing in there, even about it trying to parse the information.

Any help will be appreciated,
Jason A.

I sure would like to see some details on what these options do. There is very little and I have yet to see a real world example.

If anyone has any, the community would be very grateful.

hi .

Maybe try to check the right of your file.
Check if festival is on, and not off into Elastix menu.

Just an idea like that.
