|Description:||in the standard sounds (wav) package, the this-call-may-be-monitored-or-recorded sound file is missing the first word. The actual audio starts out with "call may be monitored", not "this call may be monitored"|
****** ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ******
akohlsmith has been a doll, and went through the prompts and created a list of affected prompts below.

Do you want these types of issues assigned to you?

also, the file "connecting.ulaw" is similarly chopped. It sounds like she's saying "ting".

Taking all the ulaw files and converting them to wav with sox so I can play them all and see which are cut off at the start (standard and extra sounds)... here is the list:
spy-zap (truncating audio?)

There are more than the ones listed. On my system using the wav's the following are also cut off at the beginning..
press-2 (probably all the press-x's)
There are probably others, but this is what I've noticed so far.

Just looking for an update on the status of this issue...

The following sounds from the phonetic directory are also missing the beginning portion of the audio.
By: Steve Murphy (murf) 2007-02-13 18:18:35.000-0600
Uh, add these to the list: (1.4 sounds)
these sound files are truncated in some fashion:
oclock.gsm (just clock?)
star.gsm (just tar?)

dir-intro is cut for wav, ulaw and alaw, didnt test the others
for the version 1.4.5
It is just saying: bienvenue dans le repertoire d'Asterisk.

Also, even in french, the file vm-no is like a silence/ dir file ;)
tested with ulaw,wav and alaw, so that let me guess that file is invalid for almost all format in french.
Also, the digits/8 has the same bad behavior (french)
By: Clod Patry (junky) 2007-02-20 13:56:09.000-0600
Ive no idea what happened to the french prompts but here we go:
missing the first part:
digits/14 (torze instead of quatorze)
digits/50 (quante instead of cinquante)
digits/a-m (m instead of a-m)
digits/mon-8 (tembre instead of septembre)
digits/mon-9 (tobre instead of octobre)
letters/space (pace instead of espace)
conf-hasleft (conf?rence instead of a quitt? la conf?rence)
digits/star (toile instead of ?toile).

After 4 days of brain-numbing repetition, I have literally hand-edited every sound file in the sounds/core set, in en, es, and fr. Along the way, I found a number of interesting problems, and I think I've got it all straightened out.
1. Why the problems? Well, it looks like all the sounds were retaped at 48kHz, so they are of much higher quality. I've listened to the gsm sources, and they are garbage compared to the new stuff. I THINK (haven't actually asked), that when these sounds are recorded, they are simply all in a single sound file, and edited into individual files by hand, but quickly. There is a lot of spare silence at each end of each file.
2. An attempt was made (an heroic attempt) to automatically remove the leading and trailing silence, and splice in 50ms of silence at each end of every file as part of the process of forming a release tarball. But, unfortunately, alas, woe, it doesn't always work right. Thus, it was necessary to hand edit the files.
I'm trying to form tarballs of the new sound sets, hopefully they will be out soon.

OK, tarballs are available for the "core" sounds!
from ftp.digium.com, user anonymous, get the ones that you are interested in:
(or all 18 permutations, if you so desire)
By: Steve Murphy (murf) 2007-02-21 19:13:40.000-0600
OK, I've formed the asterisk-extra-sounds-en-*-1.4.5.tar.gz tarballs, and they are now available on ftp.digium.com/pub/telephony/sounds/releases, along with the asterisk-core-sounds-*-*-1.4.6.tar.gz tarballs I formed yesterday.
No more auto trimming on any of the sound files, which should close this bug. The only other problem that might pop up is that the silence at the front or end of extra/ sound files might be unacceptably too large. Please open a new bug for such complaints, and when the list is gathered, I'll hack silence unmercifully again.
While I was at it, I sped up the mk* scripts that form the tarballs. Within digium's internal network, they may only have been sped up by 2x or so, but at remote sites (like me), they run maybe 200x faster.
I also fixed the "current" links on the ftp site to point to the new tarballs.
