Google TTS

Hi There,

I was wondering if anyone has had luck installing Google tts on Freepbx distro? After moving over from PBX IN A FLASH, this feature is the only one I’m really missing in Freepbx Distro.

If anyone has had luck installing this and has step by step instructions on how to get it up and running, that would be a great help!

Install directions are right on the dev site:

After copying the file, ensure that ownership is asterisk:asterisk

Sadly I’ve done all this… and no luck…

unless I’m missing something.

Logs show this:

Failed to execute ‘/var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/googletts.agi’: Exec format error


Possibly permission? Or run it via cli as root first and see what happens.

chmod +x asterisk:asterisk /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/googletts.agi



See if it even runs.

I’ve used googletts.agi works perfectly for me.

Also, i believe it uses a temp location be sure you have sufficient read/write to that location as well…



Totally Freepbx Distro newbie,

I moved over from PIAF which uses centos 6.5.

It appears with the install of freepbx distro, they use some generic version of linux and it says “chmod: cannot access `asterisk:asterisk’: No such file or directory” when I run chmod +x asterisk:asterisk /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/googletts.agi

Am I missing something or did I not install something?.

That’s not a valid “chmod” command syntax.

You are confusing chown and chmod.

How conversant are you with Linux?

Suggested reading: from the FreePBX console, do “man chmod” and
"man chown".



Its chown indeed.

@corrado.mella, it was a typo error. What would we do without you :stuck_out_tongue:

Does google tts still work? I’m having the worst time trying to get this working. I’m on Freepbx Any help would be appreciated.

No longer the free googlets thing, but absolutely it works with their ‘cloud services’ as does stt
