What's a voice directory?

You mean, listen to the caller speaking and identify who they are?

Sounds "non-trivial" to me...

IAX will connect two Asterisk servers and allow them to communicate (it stands 
for Inter Asterisk eXchange) - think of it in the same way as a SIP trunk - 
you can have multiple calls to/from multiple numbers going over the link.

However, are you saying that you've already got the "voice directory" and 
"voice match" parts working in Asterisk, and you just need to know how to dial 
between that and SwitchVox?

Or is the "voice" part of the challenge also something you're looking for help 


Numerous psychological studies over the years have demonstrated that the 
majority of people genuinely believe they are not like the majority of people.
