Playing sound through Notifications/System instead of Media.

Post by Googie85 » Sat Jul 07, 2018 5:24 am

Hi Guys,

As the topic describes I am trying to play sounds through the notifications and system channels instead of Media.

Thanks for your help,

Googie.

Heya Googie,

Not sure I understand exactly what your trying to accomplish. Do you mean you want to send a message that will trip an OS's mail notification sound, for instance? Or the error sound?

Thanks for your reply!! I understand the revspeak, I am just trying to use the notification or system sounds channels.

Many thanks,

Googie.

I think this is the part that is throwing everyone off.. What do you mean by this? Can you point out an example or something from another programming language that shows what you mean?

I think this is what Googie is talking about. Link is Windows specific, but pretty much all OSes share a similar kind of setup.

System sounds...
The problem is, those are set to queue specific sounds in relation to an event, such as receiving mail, it isn't going to work with text to speech as it looks in a specific location for the sound event that is paired to play. Worse yet (if your looking to play a particular sound), it is highly dependent on the users setup as to which sound is going to come out.

Of course, it is quite possible I am just not getting what they are asking either :|

We do need more clarification. My guess is that he wants the app to announce something using system-wide sound channels. I don't think we can do that in Android unless the user has turned on a system setting that speaks everything on screen.

But a usage example would help a lot. There may be other ways to achieve the goal.
