Qwest using APs? (303-652 scan)

3 posts in this topic

I found something a little strange earlier today. There's a kind of AIS used pretty much exclusively by independent companies called the Applications Peripheral. ILECs love these things because they do basically everything besides your dishes, and possible for it's very...uhh, distinctive stock voice (631-788-1000 will get you an announcement from one if you've never heard it before).

So more to the point, why'd they stick one in? Your guess is as good as mine, maybe they're planning a rollout of APs, or the Cognotronics machine just blew into a million pieces. They could've bought a CS-1500 and stuck one in, it's really hard to tell the difference between the two (the CS-1500 is like a closet softswitch, it's basically a new hardware revision for the DMS-10 with different name).

Either way, all these recordings are really, really new, it's almost a little surreal hearing it from a DMS-10. Even if announcements don't interest you, this is kind of a unique scan to begin with. Enjoy!

That is /definitely/ a distinctive voice. Need to find a bit of time to check the rest of these out -- thanks for the post!

Erm, maybe I should've been more specific. They put a really recent set of Pat Fleet announcements on there. If you're into stock AP recordings, there's a few in 503-845-999x.

If it's distinct you like, though, you might want to take a look at Metaswitch VP3500 prompts. 218-699-0001 is a good example of this. Particularly with their ANAC samples (one down), they have a lot of really glaring problems with both the voiceover talent and the way they engineered the recording session.
