This page refers to some additional requirements for enabling FreePBX texttospeech module on Centos 6. The texttospeech module was an add-on module that has now been replaced by two modules released by Sangoma: tts and ttsengines. Therefore this Howto is being placed in the "Previous Howto" section for historical reference, but probably will no longer be useful.

You need to install esound-libs:

yum install esound-libs

The module relies on the mpg123 software.

cd /to/some/directory (e.g. cd /usr/local/src)
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/mpg123/mpg123/1.23.4/mpg123-1.23.4.tar.bz2
bunzip2 mpg123-1.23.4.tar.bz2
tar -xvf mpg123-1.23.4.tar
cd mpg123-1.23.4
./configure
make
make install
