Developer assistance needed

Post by Anada » Sun Aug 27, 2017 9:25 pm

Hi,

I am a linguist and occasional Livecode programmer.
I have an Indy license and use the Livecode web hosting service.

I have written an application that converts phonetic text directly into sound by playing in succession an audio clip associated with each phonetic character. It works quite well but it functions by waiting until each sound is played before playing the next one.

Firstly, I am considering changing my app by having it concatenate the audio clips into chunks then playing the resulting chunks. Possibly, I could do this by having an extension made with C or Javascript. Maybe something like the Javascript routine "audioconcat".

Secondly, I am considering making my application web-based with HTML5 but I don't have a license for doing that.

I am looking for a developer who could assist me with doing there two things, for a fee. I look forward to any suggestions.

Best regards,
Simon Vickers

Any suggestions anyone?

As far as I know your in the right place for this, unfortunately I have none of what you are looking for or I would have answered your first post.

Others come and go through more or less frequently, or persons looking at this request may not have the time at the moment, but may get back to you later.

I know there are others that advertise services like this, some of which you can find in the directory, and Richard mentioned (elsewhere) the LiveCode group on LinkedIn.

Good luck with the project :)

You could speed up playing so that you know the clip time, so start the new one before the current ends.
This way you don't need to merge files.

What? If the app is free and open source any version of livecode has the export to HTML.

That is true, however I suspect that since they said they have an indy license, it may not be free or open source, and their version of Lc may be before the html 5 came out.

No, wait. The HTML5 export is always present in all editions of livecode.
You can't create a closed source web app without buying the webapp license. the webapp closed source is an additional license to the commercial licenses.

Um, the HTML5 export did not come out until (I think) vers. 8.x, I know it was not available in 7.1.4. He has an indy version of Lc, time frame unknown, if it was between 1 and 7, it will not have html5.

Earlier comm. versions, such as Enterprise (not sure about indy), *did* have a 'web app' of sorts, but that is not HTML5, and was I think browser and setup dependent (not sure, though).

I was not planning to offer an open source version of my app. And, although I do have an Indy license, when I try and create an HTML5 build, it says I need a license to do that.

I am still looking for assistance with concatenating sound clips before playing them though.

Hm. I just went to the pricing page to see why an indy version would require another license for HTML5. The message is correct, apparently it is another $499. for that capability.

I think if I were you, I would download the last 8.x from community, and see if what your thinking of doing would even work with the HTML builder. Alternately, we'll have to wait for someone to answer that one for you.

As for the concatenating sound clips before playing them, it might be worth asking in the forum if anyone has already done this. If it is simple enough, you might get enough pointers to work it out on your own.

*Edit - no sooner did I say that than I remembered this.

Use the free community version, it has the export to HTML5.
Make your test, and if it works as you like, you can decide to buy the license.

Well, thanks for the suggestion of using the OpenSource version for testing webpage deployment.
I will definitely try this.
:D

You did see the link to the playing sounds? I'm guessing that is not what you were looking for?
