Sample Script: Auto Talk

6 posts in this topic

Being as how I can't post to the example scripts forum, I thought I'd put it here.

This is an edited combination of three scripts demonstrating command line parameters, speech, and network information grabbing. I played with it for awhile, and it's fun - to me, anyway. I only have one sapi voice, so I didn't bother with the add-ons that quickly spring to mind, such as changing the voice, volume, et cetera.

See what you think... zip file with code and sample readable text is attached (I hope - ain't never done no attaches in this forum, so maybe it's there, and maybe it ain't - I looked at the preview before posting, and I don't see it there, but maybe that's just the way preview works...).

Cheers.

Nobody needs a job. Not much, anyway. Before you need a job, there's a lot of other stuff you need. More or less in order of how badly you need them: AIR, WATER, FOOD, SHELTER, CLOTHING, COMPANIONSHIP, and ACTIVITY. You've been led to believe you need money to "pay" someone else to provide those for you - all but AIR, so far. How long is it going to be before you have to "pay" for AIR, too?

Copy this to a file, like afd.txt; the easy thing to do might be to overwrite autotalk.say (the default text to read). Otherwise you can run it by --- duh --- command line: autotalk afd.txt

Say... besides being kinda funny, this might have some voicemail system implications, mightn't it?

EH, F, DEE

I scrited a client / server program to do something like this..

Pretty much you load a server.exe, then the client can type text in and the server will speak it. Fun for messing with your friends.. :-P

Here it is..
