[Freeswitch-users] Sound files from cache

OK. Thank you Italo and Micheal. I think I will first test without RAM disk
and see how it goes.

Another related question is I looked at "say" application and I think it is
quite useful as I need to play digits like "One hundred forty two" (by
passing 142) but I planned to use "native" files (already encoded media
files). Looks like "say" wont work with native files. I was studying "lua"
to make script to convert number into words and then play native files. Is
there any other easy way to do it?
