text to speech

Post by richardmac » Thu Nov 11, 2010 6:36 pm

The iPad is starting to get a lot of attention in the realm of assistive technology - think Stephen Hawking. There are a lot of situations where the iPad could be beneficial to people with disabilities. But currently I don't see a way to do text to speech via LiveCode on the iPad. Am I wrong, or is this just something that is a feature request?

LiveCode has the text to speech function

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
revSpeak field "MyText"
end mouseUp
But as you suggest this feature does not work directly in the iPad simulator. Maybe something has to be added.

Ron:

Your code works in the IDE, but not on either mobile device (iPad/iPhone).

Is the "VoiceOver" feature of the iPad open to the mobile plugin? Is it controlled some other way or supported at all?

Richard makes a good point... it would be extremely beneficial.

Thanks!

Is there any sign of this yet. I am working on a number of iPad programs for people who have a learning disability and limited speech. Does anyone know an alternative way to incorporate this feature if it's going to be sometime before this feature is added to LiveCode iOS.

Hello friends,

"RevSpeak", like "RevDB", "RevXML" etc., is realized with externals which are currently not supported on iOS!
LC 4.6 will start to support externals!

But I am sure that RunRev will also supply a new external development kit at that point, so please be a little more patient 8)

4.6 doesn't support revSpeak, does it?

Hi Britt,

did a short test (just in case) 4.6: no, apparently not yet.

Kind regards

Bernd

rrnarrator is included in the 4.6.2 iOS SDK. it works, but someone like me can't make out how to incorporate it into a typical stack for iOS. any smartypants out there can take a look and see if how it can be usable, eg. incorporated into revspeak "hello"

Hi,

I cannot find reference about rrnarrator into the iOS PDF nor in the main Document.
Where did you find it ?

Hi guys!

@fpierron
the SDK with the example stacks/externals can be found here:
http://www.runrev.com/developers/docume ... rnals-sdk/

@Scott
what exactly is you problem?

I did not work with it, but the example stack shows what and how it can be done.
To add the external to your standalone, you need to select the folder "binaries" inside
of the example folder in the standalone builder setting "Copy files"!

Hi,

I'm testing rrNarrator external but I can't listen any sound... seems that do something but nothing sound.

Any experience? I need build from Xcode the external? I'm on LC5.5 with MacOSX Lion

Salut Jean-Marc,

Thanks for answer. Can you explain step-by-step the process?

1.I download the SDK R10 files with the externals XCode projects.
2. I installed the LiveCode extensions before.
3. I opened the LC rrnarrator.livecode stack and setup the certificates.
4. Save and with Organizator loaded into one iPhone4 with iOS5.1.1
5. Nothing happen.

I test the same building the external from XCode but I'm not sure if I do it correctly but the result is the same, nothing sound.

The same with rrMicrophone external...

Salut,
Josep M

Hi Joseph,

you also made this step?
To add the external to your standalone, you need to select the folder "binaries" inside
of the example folder in the standalone builder setting "Copy files"!
This will add the actual "externals" to your standalone!
