I would like to remove the ‘Comedian Mail’ name/message played when a user tries to access their voicemail. Please let me know how to do this.


One thought on - Remove ‘Comedian Mail’ Message

  • It plays a file /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/en/vm-login.wav

    The recording says “Comedian Mail, please log in now.” We thought we still needed a voice prompt, so we recorded a new message.

    I am not sure what happens if the file is missing, try removing it and test. Alternatively the file could be empty (0 seconds of audio) or have a tone or some other sound in it as feedback.

    The file has to be in the right format for asterisk, after recording it on a Windows machine, I used this command to convert it:

    sox infile.wav -r 8000 -e signed-integer -b 16 -c 1 outfile.wav

    “Sox” figures out the input format.
