Creating Recordings Remotely with Audacity

I have followed the PCM Encoded, 16 Bits, at 8000Hz WAV file rule but each time I upload a file and name it I never see the file under the list of announcements. Not sure if there is an easier way to do this or not remotely.
Thanks so much for all your help.

Actually I know see I am gettig an error message, blech…

[ERROR] The Recorded File Does Not exists:


make sure you uploaded or recorded a file with the entered extension

Does it exist, is it readable by your asterisk user

ls -l /var/spool/asterisk/tmp/unnumbered-ivrrecording.wav

and what does

file /var/spool/asterisk/tmp/unnumbered-ivrrecording.wav

return ?

are you sure you are saving the file after the upload. you have to click on upload and then after it is uploaded enter a valid file name and click on save.

Allright I think your may have busted me on this one. After downloading 1/2 dozen apps I don’t think I was actually clicking that dang upload button but I can’t be sure because I switched up and used MIcrosoft’s original SoundRecorderXP.exe in the end and that may have done it but it may have been the upload button I refuse to cop to it
Thanks again as always for your prompt replies.

As a follow up none of the announcements I uploaded played correctly. They appeared to upload correctly into the system but when the time came to hear them on the IVR announcement nothing was heard.

compare the outputs of

file /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/abandon-all-hope.wav


file yourfile.wav

They should be identical if you got your formatting right…
