"Weather by Zip Code" Module for FreePBX Updated

I am pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of the weather by zip code module for FreePBX, version 1.1.6.

Weather by Zip Code allow you to retrieve current weather information from any touchtone phone using nothing more than your PBX connected to the Internet. You key in any of 42,740 U.S. Zip Codes using a touchtone phone. The report is downloaded, converted to an audio file, and played back to you.

The module supports both flite and swift text to speech engines, and installs like any other free PBX module in less than three minutes.

Full details are available, and this module may be downloaded from the the development support site files section. (http://projects.colsolgrp.net/projects/show/weatherzip)
