Do you miss your old synthesized repeater controller? I do. I decided to build a vocabulary sourced from a late serial Advanced Computer Controls (ACC) RC-850, version 3.8, which utilized a Texas Instruments TMS5220 series speech synthesis chip from the mid-1980s. The vocabulary includes over 700 words, in male and female format, plus the associated sound effects. I also created new words from other word pieces, syllables, prefixes and suffixes, et al. In addition, I created phrases to fit all of the current app_rpt behavior which live in the
rpt directory. You’ll find all of these are in 8 kHz ulaw monaural format, ready for Asterisk as a drop-in replacement…:

Inside this ZIP file, you will find everything ready to drop into your
sounds folder, presumably
/var/lib/asterisk/sounds. I recommend copying/renaming your existing sounds folder to sounds_original or something to that effect.
If you want to create word phrases, simply ‘cat’ words together, as follows:
cat inputfile1.ulaw inputfile2.ulaw > outputfile.ulaw.
