As the title attempts to graciously explain the scenario but is grievously click-baity.
How, can I setup the hardware (server), with a soundcard, to output paging/intercom thru a soundcard when an enduser dials the paging extension to make an announcement.
The output of the soundcard will go to the buildings’ speaker, and will be near the amplifier.
Still new at all this. I learned many acronyms, still forget. I have seen flow-diagrams of SIP, but do not remember. Speak to me as a baby/noob.
TO clarify, I don’t know if paging is to be enabled, or if automatically there (if so I need to boot up the server to check it out in a bit); if the right way to reference the paging digits is by using extension number or something else.
I’m decent with Linux. I would say my understanding of Linux is greater than asterisks.
Will I have to have a softphone on the system to auto-answer and than output? I would rather it be internally handled by Asterisks.
