you thinking about adding in a way to make the songs be announced?
well i already do that but if you do it i will look over the code but more then likely not get it,
because the computers need lots of adjustments when they try to speak normal words so there is need of ways to map out what is to be said so it sounds like the title or the artist.
that is way to much to add in to a ratings code. if you do it you should make a new code for only the use of the annoucing.
and it would need options pages to let us map out what it is to say for which words..
also this would invovle text to speach engines, which is another matter all togeather. as the american english one from L&H you get from the ms msagent site is the only one that can really be adjusted to say the words properly the german tts engine does not even have some words that it can say. the british english ones are just voiced recordings from people saying the letters and or a few words that are used when the engine is reading the text.
just getting the computer to say something is amazing but getting it to say it right is very hard when you can not map out text to be said that would sound like what you want. and when you don't have a tts engine you can force to say the stuff properly.
well it is down right hard to get anything spoken that you can understand.
just want to give you the heads up on this since tts is really in the begging yet it is still messing up in the dragon naturaly speaking program yet.
most people remember the voice from tv shows of the 60's that sounds dumb and they don't want that on their computer, which is what most of them end up with because they don't search for the best stuff.
if your are going in to the tts area your in for a lot of research on the different voice engines,
you want people that have programmed with tts engines before you need to join the yahoo group i started for msagents and ask in there about tts programing there are some really good programmers in that group of over 1300 members.
that is also where the djamp program is in the folders.
djamp combined winamp with voice engines over 5 years ago he just did this last version last year so it is up to date as your going to get i think.
the author of djamp is in NZ, but he does not answer emails anymore he stopped working on it again. but theres some places downunder that still work with tts engines, try Eclips nick use to be ceo of it now he is just a devloper they might help with infomation.
but you would have to have a huge improvement to djamp in order for me to change from that program. it took him a year to develope it and then i beta tested for a couple months,
then he released it then he just updated it like i said and i beta tested it for another couple months then he released it.
so it is really over a 5 years in development.
i by the way was not the only tester.
