Installing the asterisk-unimrcp Modules

In this video we will build and install the asterisk-unimrcp modules, which essentially connect Asterisk to the UniMRCP library, allowing Asterisk to use MRCP to communicate with LumenVox ASR and TTS speech services that we'll install in the next video.

There are two different modules installed in this step - 

  • res_speech_unimrcp.so - this is the older, backward compatible module, and should probably be avoided, unless you really need to use it
  • app_unimrcp.so - this is the newer and recommented module, which includes both ASR and TTS functionality

Please also check our Configuring Asterisk 13 article which relates to his video.
