    Courtesy of WebOS Internals developers noradtux and hape (with some packaging and infrastructure assistance from myself), we now have a speech synthesis daemon/service available.

    Listen to http://bit.ly/speech-dispatcher-test (from ./spd-say "This is a test of the Speech Dispatcher service from WebOS Internals. Smart. Open. Phones.")

    Application:SpeechDispatcher - WebOS Internals has all the information about this package, which is now in the testing feeds.

    You must use Preware to install it from the testing feeds. Do not try installing it with any other program.

    Very cool. Does anyone have plans to make use of Speech Dispatcher? I'd be interested to see what you guys do with it.

    Navit is the first application to use it.

    Bit of a dumb question, but how does this compare to the existing open source test-to-speech service? http://forums.precentral.net/web-os-...xt-speech.html

    Speech Dispatcher is using espeak as the back-end, so the speech quality should be identical.

    However, using the espeak package directly (as the service you reference is doing) is not supported, because if you call espeak faster than it can speak you get into trouble. The Speech Dispatcher takes care of this and more. Note that this effort is a continuation of the espeak effort that the service you reference was using (ported by the same WebOS Internals developers who did the original espeak package), and has replaced that package in Navit.

    It also doesn't use Java (which will stop working in a webOS version coming soon)

    Speech Dispatcher (and the espeak back-end for it) is of course open source.

    is it only available for 1.4.5? I tried to install and get an ipkg error. So before I start troubleshooting I was just curious if it is 1.4.1 compatible.

    It was developed and tested on 1.4.5. But I don't see why it shouldn't work on 1.4.1 aswell.

    Hi,

    I can`t install it on my pre. I doctored my Pre and yesterday installed the Alpha version of espeak and navit. After using "Save/Restore" to restore my Launcher settings something went wrong. I had to go through the activation process again (I don`t know why). All the apps had to be reinstalled (their settings and data was correct!), but this time WOQI didn`t install navit. Some error occured.

    The Preware version now won`t work and bring up this error:

    I'm a bit confused, does this app do anything or is it just a service for other apps?

    It is just a service for other apps. Currently only Navit uses it.

    Hi Mamouton,

    Login into your pre with terminal and delete the old symlink:

    rm /usr/lib/locale

    Probably you will have to remount rw before:

    mount -o remount,rw /

    That did the trick for me Either remount ro or reboot your pre. Than you should be able to install it!

    Damn. It didn`t work for me. I had english spoken text with german pronounciation.
    Then I tried to:

    - uninstall Navit/Speechd via preware
    - mount -o remount,rw /
    - rm /usr/lib/locale (wasn`t there anymore)
    - rm -R /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/org.webosinternals.navit (wasn`t there anymore)
    - rm -R /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/org.webosinternals.speechd (was there)
    - reboot
    - Install via Preware
    - This leads me to the same error and leaves me without navit

    Any suggestion?

    after removing that link you need to reinstall the locale-package. Or recreate the link manually, but pointing to /media/internal/.widk/usr/lib/locale .

    Or just use Preware to remove and install things, so the dependencies are followed.

    Hi,

    I used Preware to remove everything. Still got that error. Speechd won`t install

    ln -s /usr/lib/locale /media/internal/.widk/usr/lib/locale
    ?

    There is no directory "/media/internal/.wdik", just ".wi" !? Thus I didn`t set the link.

    Now I did now was the following:

    - install the german locale (from Navit Alpha) via WOSQI
    - install speechd via WOSQI
    - install new navit via WOSQI

    Now navit can be used, but I do again get englisch messages with german pronaunciation!!! Sounds terrible. The old locale package set the link /usr/lib/locale to
    /usr/lib/locale -> /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/org.webosinternals.locale/locale
    Any suggestion on how to get correct guidance messages?

    Thanks

    Why do you not use Preware? It will install all needed packages in one run if you install The Navit package.

    The locale from the alpha version is different to the one that is in the testing feed in Preware. This can not work.

    Remove locale, remove the link that was set by the old locale package. Install the new locale from Preware.

    Aahhh, webosinternals was often down during the last days. Thus I couldn`t read the wikis. I guess my problem was, that I did only acitvate one testing feed "arm7" and NOT "all" in addition and preware didn`t find localisation. Now it installed, but I didn`t yet have the possibility to try routing and speach. I assume that was my problem! Now ".widk" does exist!
