_Talk this function speaks text to you

37 posts in this topic

Thanks to El-Trucha for making a _Talk() function. I have modified it so that instead of exporting VBScript, it uses objects (requires latest beta). I tried to make the voices change but, no luck. Here's the code (with example):

_TalkOBJ('This is auto it beta speaking.')

Func _TalkOBJ($s_text)
  Local $o_speech = ObjCreate("SAPI.SpVoice")
  $o_speech.Speak($s_text)
  $o_speech = ""
EndFunc

Any help with the different voices? I checked MSDN and I think I should use $o_speech.SetVoice() but when I try to, it doesn't work. I think I'm getting the syntax wrong.

As far as using an object to speak, this was already done back in March. Would be nice to change the voices though. There's a VBScript example of doing this in the following thread.

But, in the topic you directed me to, Green Lantern asks...

How can you change the voice in AutoIt with COM?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

...and no one replied. So, how can you change the voice in Autoit with COM? :) I would be very glad if someone answered this because all I get is the "action with this object failed" error.

from roger:

' Declaring variable to hold SAPI object.
Dim voic

' Creating SAPI object using spvoice.
Set voic = Wscript.CreateObject("SAPI.SpVoice")

' If you want to change the voice then uncomment any of the following 4 lines.

'Set voic.voice = voic.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft mary", "Language=409").Item(0)
'Set voic.voice = voic.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft mike", "Language=409").Item(0)
'Set voic.voice = voic.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft sam", "Language=409").Item(0)
'Set voic.voice = voic.GetVoices("Name=crystal16", "Language=409").Item(0)

' you can set other parameters and properties like voice pitch, speed etc.  

' Using speak function of SpVoice to speak a string.
voic.Speak("Welcome To My First Speech Enabled ASP Page, Have a nice day!")

' Destroying SAPI.spvoice object.
Set voic = nothing

I've never used COM before and came out with this? It doesn't work, I get an error, try it.

;Declaring variable to hold SAPI object.
Dim $voic

;Creating SAPI object using spvoice.
$voic = ObjCreate("SAPI.SpVoice")

;If you want to change the voice then uncomment any of the following 4 lines.

$voic.voice = $voic.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft mary", "Language=409").Item(0)
;Set voic.voice = voic.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft mike", "Language=409").Item(0)
;Set voic.voice = voic.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft sam", "Language=409").Item(0)
;Set voic.voice = voic.GetVoices("Name=crystal16", "Language=409").Item(0)

;you can set other parameters and properties like voice pitch, speed etc.  

;Using speak function of SpVoice to speak a string.
$voic.Speak("Welcome To My First Speech Enabled ASP Page, Have a nice day!")

;Destroying SAPI.spvoice object.
$voic = ""

Remeber I've never used COM before...

i think you need to use tokens to set it.

for ex. you can use tokens to get all the voices.

so i asume you should pass a token to the "set voice" func.

dim $voic = ObjCreate("SAPI.SpVoice")

For $Token In $Voic.GetVoices('', '')
        ConsoleWrite($token.GetDescription & @LF)
Next

$voic = ""

w0uter: Exactly what msdn said about the tokens thing, except I am a COM noob and didn't understand it.

layer: I tried that idea and it didn't work. I dug further into msdn and it said I need to use $o_speech.SetVoice() but when I try and do that it won't work. I might be getting the syntax wrong. :)

EDIT: I thought it would help to give you my failed attempt.

_TalkOBJ('This is auto it beta speaking.', 2)

;voice params:
;
;1 - Microsoft Sam
;2 - Microsoft Mary
;3 - Microsoft Mike 
;4 - Crystal16 (if installed)

Func _TalkOBJ($s_text, $s_voice = 1)
  Local $o_speech = ObjCreate("SAPI.SpVoice")
  If $s_voice = 1 Then $o_speech.voice = $o_speech.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft sam", "Language=409").Item(0)
  If $s_voice = 2 Then $o_speech.voice = $o_speech.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft mary", "Language=409").Item(0)
  If $s_voice = 3 Then $o_speech.voice = $o_speech.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft mike", "Language=409").Item(0)
  If $s_voice = 4 Then $o_speech.voice = $o_speech.GetVoices("Name=crystal16", "Language=409").Item(0)
  $o_speech.Speak($s_text)
  $o_speech = ""
EndFunc

Here is something I picked up in the forums a while back

$oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler 

_TalkOBJ('This is auto it beta speaking.', 1)
_TalkOBJ('This is auto it beta speaking.', 2)
_TalkOBJ('This is auto it beta speaking.', 3)

;voice params:
;
;1 - Microsoft Mary
;1 - Microsoft Sam
;3 - Microsoft Mike

Func _TalkOBJ($s_text, $s_voice = 3)
    Local $o_speech = ObjCreate ("SAPI.SpVoice")
        Select
            Case $s_voice == 1
                $o_speech.Voice = $o_speech.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft Mary", "Language=409").Item(0)
            Case $s_voice == 2
                $o_speech.Voice = $o_speech.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft Mike", "Language=409").Item(0)
            Case $s_voice == 3
                $o_speech.Voice = $o_speech.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft Sam", "Language=409").Item(0)
        EndSelect
    $o_speech.Speak ($s_text)
    $o_speech = ""
EndFunc ;==>_TalkOBJ

; This is my custom error handler 
Func MyErrFunc() 
   $HexNumber=hex($oMyError.number,8) 
   Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF & _
               "Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF & _
               "Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription ) 

   SetError(1); something to check for when this function returns 
Endfunc

I have no idea who wrote it but it was not me.

Hmmm... It looks like it should work but it doesn't on this computer because I only have Microsoft Sam. Can anyone else test this out?

Looks like the one I did a long time ago.

Edit: yep even has the same type-o in it.

Ok, I downloaded and installed SAPI 5.1 and now this function I posted earlier works:

_TalkOBJ('This is auto it beta speaking.', 2)

;voice params:
;
;1 - Microsoft Sam
;2 - Microsoft Mary
;3 - Microsoft Mike 
;4 - Crystal16 (if installed)

Func _TalkOBJ($s_text, $s_voice = 1)
    Local $o_speech = ObjCreate("SAPI.SpVoice")
    If $s_voice = 1 Then $o_speech.voice = $o_speech.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft sam", "Language=409").Item(0)
    If $s_voice = 2 Then $o_speech.voice = $o_speech.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft mary", "Language=409").Item(0)
    If $s_voice = 3 Then $o_speech.voice = $o_speech.GetVoices("Name=Microsoft mike", "Language=409").Item(0)
    If $s_voice = 4 Then $o_speech.voice = $o_speech.GetVoices("Name=crystal16", "Language=409").Item(0)
    $o_speech.Speak($s_text)
    $o_speech = ""
EndFunc

You are more than welcome to the credit. I sometimes think that it would be best if people put their names at the top of their scripts so that it is easier to remember who did them.
