Asterisk Flite

Flite For Asterisk provides the "Flite" dialplan application, which allows you to use the Flite TTS Engine with Asterisk. This module invokes the Flite TTS engine locally, and uses it to render text to speech. It supports voice selection and 8kHz or 16kHz sample rates to provide the best possible sound quality along with the use of wideband codecs. It works with Asterisk 1.6.x, 1.8, and 10.
