[asterisk-users] Pattern Extension not working in Dialplan

READ application should do the job for you
i normally use first three arguments i.e. variable name, filename to play and max digits
you might consider using "waitexten" before "read" though

​Thank you all for your suggestions.
1. [macro-age] is a macro and not an extension badly named.
2. I am able to use Read to fulfill the purpose but we can't use Read() after Background(). To use read we need Playback() [ am I right?]. But Playback do not provide barge-in facility i.e. user have to listen whole message then only his inputs will be accepted and if he entered input during the time recording is played , the input will be lost. So if using Background() [which return the control immediately] I have to use _XX extension.
3. So basically I want to create a dial-plan where user is asked to input multi-digit value and he can enter it without listening complete message (if the user knows the message already)​
