Speech recognition opens up a whole new world of possibilities for users of Asterisk, the open-source PBX. But like anything else, getting started can be a bit daunting if you don't know where to begin. In this video, we're going to cover installing the LumenVox speech engine on the Asterisk platform.
The Asterisk Speech Recognition API adds speech recognition functions into Asterisk. These functions are available via dial plan and AGI. The functions do not do speech recognition themselves. For that, you still need to have a speech engine installed, and that is where the LumenVox Speech Engine comes into play. Please note that the speech API is included in BE and recent 1.4, but a patch is required for 1.2.
In order to integrate the LumenVox Engine with the Asterisk Speech API, Digium wrote the Asterisk Connector Bridge. This is a module that must be placed into the Asterisk modules directory. It allows developers to seamlessly use the LumenVox Speech Engine via the standard speech API.
To get started with the installation, you need three files:
Once you've downloaded all of those from the website, begin your installation process.
If you have any problems at all, you can contact LumenVox Support. I hope you have good luck installing LumenVox on Asterisk, and thanks for picking our Speech Engine.
