PostPosted: Thu Apr 19, 2007 8:55 pm    Post subject: Using Asterisk to autodial and play audio file. Reply with quote Back to top

I am a new Vonage customer trying to set up a computer as an Asterisk server. I would like the server to call a phone list and play an audio file to each person in the phone list. I'm trying to keep the cost down since the phone list is a prayer chain for church members. I don't have any FXO, FXS, SIP, ATA, etc. adapter card(s) in the Asterisk box (no cards period) and was hoping to not have to buy one to accomplish this since it is for church that doesn't have the funds. I was hoping I could do this through my Voip service with Vonage. I don't want to plug the Vonage phone adapter (Motorola) into the Asterisk server; I just want the server to dial the phone list through my Voip provider (Vonage in this case) and play the audio file (prayer request) to each church member that answers their phone. The Vonage adapter is just for my personal phone useage; I don't need Asterisk to mess with it. Is this do-able and can you point me in the right direction to configure this? Thanks for any advise.

Without connecting Asterisk to Vonage via a phone adapter, you will need a SIP account. Vonage offers SIP accounts for their softphone add-on only. Since the softphone is an add-on charge, you might better off looking at other providers who would be better to help you with Asterisk set up.

Alternatively, you could use an analog voice modem with the Vonage adapter, and use call broadcasting software.

That sounds like a viable option to me. The only call broadcasting software that I can come across is Voicent, but I either have to pay for that or use the shareware for which you have to suffer through the advertising with each call. I don't suppose you know of an open source package for Linux? Again, I'm trying to keep the cost down. Thanks.

I think I MIGHT have a free solution for you. It's called Telepixie, and among other things, it can be set to do broadcasts to multiple phones. (Those numbers have to have an account with Telepixie also, but it's FREE.)

Their website is at: http://www.telepixie.com

I haven't used the broadcast function, so I can't comment on how well it does or doesn't work, but here's the blurb on it from the Telepixie website

Quote:
"Broadcast short messages to your family, company, team, congregation or club with one call. You can keep your group private or make it public and invite other TelePixie members to join your special interest group.

How it works...

Simply Create Your Broadcast Group and invite people to join. We will set up a voice mail box that lets you record your message and send it to the group with the push of a button.


If this isn't what you're looking for, then I apologize. But I'm just trying to think of a cheap solution to your problem, and this came to mind.

Actually, telepixie is kind of neat. I checked it out, but the problem is that the people I'm trying to autodial don't have access to a computer to be able to register and be part of the broadcast group you can set up on their website. I'll see what they think anyway. Thanks.

From TelePixel site:

http://www.telepixie.com/company.cfm

Quote:
Our ad sponsored call services are free to use with the understanding that each call and optional email will contain a short ad.


This is no different from the ad sponspored free version of Voicent software, so it is not appropriate for a prayer call. You never know what kind of ad you will get !

The standard version of Voicent autodialer is $299. Modem costs $50. Maybe the people receiving the calls could contribute a one time fee towards the cost. They will need to opt in to the idea anyway to receive the call.

I do not know of any open source software, but there probably is.
