It’s new TTS option but it’s really interesting because Lumenvox is able to provide both ASR and TTS engines for VXI*. In 2008, It was the first Speech Recognition provider for Asterisk and the first one running with the VXI* VoiceXML browser too. Lumenvox TTS voices are available in: British English, American English, American Spanish with many more coming soon, e.g. French, Australian English, German.

Find here a small example about how to implement a VoiceXML callback feature for your IVR service. VXI* won’t pikup the call of the caller, a ringback tone is playing before handup. Once the call is hangup, the platform callback the caller (caller ID or session.connection.remote.uri). A callback service is a very good idea to avoid call charges for your customers when they are calling you. account1: Call 0001 the IVR pickup the call… and execute your service (charged if you call it directly) account2: Call 0002 the IVR don’t pickup the call… ringbacktone message and call back you to execute your service (free call, with callback) System Requirements: Asterisk 1.4, 1.6, 1.8 VXI* VoiceXML browser 6.0 or upper VoIP or E1/T1 carrier must support ringbacktone/earlymedia VoiceXML Accounts: vxml.conf [account1] name=voicexml_service number=0001 url=http://localhost/vxml/index.vxml dialformat=SIP/%s [account2] name=notanswer_callback number=0002 url=http://localhost/vxml/callback.vxml dialformat=SIP/%s force=ringing […]
To create amazing services that provide significant value added you have to break barriers. Today’s example shows how you can connect two very different technology environments, a Flash application and a Telephony service. Have you ever think about it before? It’s something you can do thanks to our ultimate Xtras* Flash/RTMP server channel for VXI* over Asterisk. This RTMP channel is a small Flash server which can connect a phone number through VoiceXML to a Flash applet. For example, a user can call with his own phone to move a paddle using the keypad of a Pong video game coded in Flash. No specific telephony developments are required. There’s hundred of business opportunities that could require to connect a Flash service and Telephony to get feedback from consumers.

A ringback tone is an audible indication that is heard on the telephone line by the caller while the phone they called is still in use. It is normally a repeated tone, designed to assure the calling party that the called party’s line is ringing, although the ring-back tone may be a song or now any dynamic voice content. The ultimate VXI* VoiceXML browser 6.0 is able to execute a VoiceXML session during ringback tone for your phone services. Now you can provide information or get caller ID during all ringback tone with or without call pikup. You can also create personalized contents for each caller. Beneficts: Caller ID detection Duration, according to your carrier (arround 30s … 60s) Text-to-Speech or pre-recorded contents Easy to configure with VXML accounts Callback services (thru VoiceXML) No costs for callers! Requirements: Asterisk 1.4 […]
Next VXI* VoiceXML Browser for Asterisk releases 6.X (in development) are supporting RFC 5552. Commonly, application servers controlling media servers use this protocol for pure VoiceXML processing capabilities. This protocol is an adjunct to the full MEDIACTRL protocol and packages mechanism. More information: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/rfc5552/
Since latest 5.X releases, all VXI* platforms can add a new Xtras* MRCP Client interface to run any VoiceXML Standard Speech Recognition Application over Asterisk VXI* The VoiceXML Browser for Asterisk includes for free a new Xtras* Extension for UniMRCP project. UniMRCP is the open source cross-platform MRCP project, which provides everything required for the implementation and deployment of both an MRCP client and an MRCP server. UniMRCP encapsulates SIP/MRCPv2, RTSP, SDP and RTP/RTCP stacks and provides integrators with an MRCP v1 and v2 user level API. We are pleased to announce the VXI* / UniMRCP interoperability to easily create advanced multimedia VoiceXML applications over Asterisk. The uniMRCP Client interface allows now to connect your favorite Speech Recognition Engines from big vendors using their own MRCP server without any additional cost.
