[Freeswitch-users] How to delay IVR answer during an outbound call

I am actually doing a lua script for IVR as follows

-- answer the call

while session:ready() == true do
	-- sleep a second

	-- play a file
	-- hangup

The problem lies in: when I picked up my phone, blah.wav was already
played for a while, instead of from the beginning.

I shall greatly appreciate any input.
