Any plans of allowing the outputted speech to be saved to memory stick ??
Blabberbot is an experimental text to speech program for plain text files
based on the Flite (Festival lite) speech engine PSP port provided by Mypspdev.
The Flite speech engine has a built in "file to speech" function, but I have taken an approach of
breaking a file down into segments separated by return characters so that these segments can
be printed to the screen, and so the user can also seek forward and back through the file while
the speaking is in progress. Normally, the function that speaks files cannot be interrupted.
Controls are fairly intuitive.
While the text file is being spoken, a progress indicator is displayed at the top of the screen,
and left or right on the Dpad can be used to advance the position in the text file forwards, or
reverse the position. The left and right controls are non responsive during speaking,
so they must be held down to be polled between bursts of speech.
There is no pause button implemented yet.
This is a good idea for those who are on the road and too busy driving to read their favourite e-books or other important documents. Thank you for creating this program, and I look forward to seeing how far development on this program goes.
Art, your recent production rate of quality homebrew is taking on
Thx for another interesting release.
Thanks for the comments Guys,
but most of the credit for this program, and whatever it becomes
must go to the authors of Flite, and Mypspdev for porting it.
I think it's a program that needed to happen though, since there is no other PSP text file reader (speaker) yet.
Lol, thanks, I'm glad you appreciate it.Art, your recent production rate of quality homebrew is taking on
I think the next lot of work I put in will be updates to existing programs rather than new ones.
not bad at all ...it reads quite well ....i am suprised...
this could actually be quite useful for some people as
metioned above ... i hope you will put a pause and
stop funtion in future updates...
i also like you irdeto sage and audio mechanica ,you
are on fire (hot)...and so different
thanks you ART ...:thumbup:
We love you Art!
I needed something like this.
Nice. Hope this gets updated.
My current working version is already far improved...
Blabberbot V2 (XX/11/08):
- Attempted to fix crash on exit problem with late firmware PSP units,
although untested because this isn't a problem with the test unit.
- Backslash character is filtered from speech, but not from text.
- Pause button implemented.
- New Multi threaded operation makes buttons responsive at all times.
- Program no longer splits words if the screen character buffer fills.
