Is there a known problem with FLITE on latest distro?


Is there a known problem with FLITE on latest distro?

[root@ast asterisk]# which flite

I added the path to settings > text to speech engine
But when I try a simple test in the dial plan I get this error:

[2020-05-06 18:32:56] WARNING[15061][C-00001b38]: pbx.c:2922 pbx_extension_helper: No application ‘Flite’ for extension (from-internal, 1020, 1)

Need some help please in getting TTS to work. Any TTS is fine, preference for the simplest one.

Hi @vaibhav

Please run “yum update” and “fwconsole reload” from the console and your issue should be resolved.

Thank you

Assuming yum gets you an updated Asterisk, you will need to restart asterisk as well:

fwconsole restart

Just a quick context:
I’m a first time user of FreePBX. It has taken me a lot of time & effort to install & configure FreePBX distro. More so because I have set it up on the cloud (VM with Linode).

I’m scared as hell to fire “yum update” – just in case of anything breaks due to conflicts :frowning:

I understand you cannot do anything about my fear but just saying…

That’s what snapshots are for.
