I have been having a play with the voice alerting on our test setup to see what it’s like and whether its something I can offer my customers.
Setting up was quite straight forward, we have 3CX phone system and I just made a new extension for Ignition, made a network path and connected. A couple of force starts but once I figured out that the username in Ignition must be the extension number in 3CX it was plain sailing. Using my local extension as the notification route meant that the alarm would come to my desk phone.
It’s very quick, trigger an alarm and my phone rings and the announcement begins. All this is good.
The problem I’m having is with the speech, this woman needs to take a breath now and again, it seems very un-natural, I’ve played around with spelling, commas, spaces and full stops. A comma helps but its still quite fast. What would be really helpful would be a method of inserting a single or multiple pause(s) of say 500ms in the text. Is there such a thing?
Any chance of the British voice “Amy” being added? Its more natural and easier to sell (for me).
