I want to start recording with a prompt of “press or say 1 to 5”. If no DMTF is pressed, I want to send the recording to Google Speech to get the number back (got that part working already).
If any dtmf key is pressed while Application_Record is running with option y, then the recording terminates and sends RECORD_STATUS of “DTMF” (A terminating DTMF was received).
But I need to know **what** number that DTMF was, and I can’t see a way of grabbing it after the fact.
I can see in the code where the right variables are..
* \param dtmf_integer the integer value of the DTMF key received
So,3 questions I guess:
1: Am I going about this the right way? (unimrcp is not an option here)
2: Can someone explain in layman’s terms how a simpleton like me could copy, hack about with and make a new module, like, for example, app_record_alt.c, that would stick around each time I updated Asterisk from source?
3: Or, is anyone willing to make the simple code change to the file to improve it to send back the DTMF to the dialplan? For free to improve core code? If not, and I posted on the commercial list, how much would I be looking at to modify about 6 lines of code and return an extra variable?
So, ultimately, I’m hoping for something like:
option “y” returns a RECORD_STATUS of “DTMF” if a key was press
option “z” returns a RECORD_STATUS of showing which key was pressed. Or possibly even DTMF_VALUE (if an app can return two variables to the dialplan?)
I’m sure this would benefit a lot of people.
I posted this a few days ago in the forum at https://community.asterisk.org/t/can-anyone-help-with-a-quick-app-record-c-module-improvement-and-can-explain-over-riding-modules/73221
but no-one bit, so, I’m hoping this list can help.
