    Hey guys and gals!

    I just got Asterisk, but now I'm wondering if it's worth getting some add-ons available for this software.

    I found several of them and would like to know if any of you have tried any of these:

    • G.729 Codec - Reduces the network bandwidth used by each VoIP call, without sacrificing call quality.
    • Fax for Asterisk - Fax For Asterisk is a commercial add-on module that lets Asterisk and Switchvox systems send, receive and relay fax documents.
    • Digium Phone Module for Asterisk - The DPMA is a binary Asterisk module that provides a secure communications channel between Digium phones and Asterisk.
    • Cepstral Text-to-Speech - Add high quality text-to-speech to your Asterisk system with Cepstral's Allison voice.
    • High Performance Echo Cancellation - Echo Cancellation (HPEC) module can help eliminate the most common types of echo heard on PSTN connections.
    If so, what are your thoughts about them?

    Is this a self install Asterisk on computer you have console access to? Or is this hosted/maintained by someone else?

    As for the addons, I haven't used any of the ones you have mentioned.

    But the Cepstral Text-to-Speech sounds kinda cool if its easy to create nice voice menu's. I was just using a free website and downloading their wav files after creating them lol.

    It's a self-installed software onto a computer that I used to run a voicemail system from SuperVoice (http://www.supervoice.com) but that thought to substitute more conveniently for Asterisk.

    One problem I have always have is recording the voice menus because of the many noises around this place. I would need a professional recording studio to sound professional, or certainly Cepstral Text-to Speech would be another good option.

    Downloading wav files sounds also like a great idea, however if you need specific recordings might be hard to find the wav already made, hehehe
