How to record our own audio?

There is a very easy way to record our own announcement. In windows system, there is a tool "sound recorder" can do that. Please click "start->Run ..." and enter "sndrec32.exe" to run it. For windows Vista/Windows 7, the default 'sound recorder' application is changed and we cannot use it to record WAV files. Please click here to get 'sndrec32.exe'.

In the popup "Sound selection" window, please select "CCITT A-Law" format, and select "8KHZ, 8Bit, 7kb/sec" attributes.

Then, we can save this new audio file into 'cust_ann' directory which is in the 'mss_ann' directory. For example, if your miniSIPServer is installed at "d:/myvoipapp/minisipserver", you can save your own audio files into "d:/myvoipapp/minisipserver/mss_ann/cust_ann". In linux system, you can find this directory at "/opt/sipserver/mss_ann/cust_ann" by default. Then we must restart MSS to re-load this announcement.

By the way, if we have some others announcement but not such audio format, we can also use "sound recorder" tool to convert it to above format and attributes.

Please refer to manual document for more details about MSS audio ID.
