Adhearsion is an open-source voice application development framework. Adhearsion users write applications atop the framework with Ruby and call into their code.
Adhearsion rests above a lower-level telephony platform, for example Asterisk, FreeSWTICH or Voxeo PRISM, and provides a framework for integrating with various resources, such as SQL, LDAP and XMPP (Jabber).
- Simple Ruby code
- Flexible CallControllers to handle calls
- High-level media handling constructs
- Simple interaction between calls
- Self-documenting configuration engine
- Support for plugins and other code reuse
- Integration with databases, web APIs, etc
- Event monitoring, async communication
- Ruby 1.9.3+ or JRuby 1.7.0+
- ruby_speech dependencies
- A VoIP platform:
- Asterisk 1.8+
- A Rayo server (Prism 11+ with rayo-server, or FreeSWITCH with mod_rayo)
- An interest in building cool new things
Ruby 1.9.2 is no longer supported by Adhearsion or the Ruby core team. You should upgrade to Ruby 1.9.3 or Ruby 2 as a matter of urgency in order to continue receiving security fixes.
gem install adhearsion
An Adhearsion application can be as simple as this:
“by answer say ‘Hello, and thank you for your call. We will put you through to the front desk now…’ dial ‘tel:+18005550199’ hangup

These Open Source projects are also maintained by members of the Adhearsion team and may be useful when developing Adhearsion apps:
- Telephony-Dev-Box is a system for creating virtual machines that will preconfigure Adhearsion, Asterisk, FreeSWITCH and PRISM together. Just add a SIP client and start calling your app!
- SippyCup makes generating SIPp profiles and RTP media easy. Useful for load testing your apps and telephony infrastructure.
