Motorola Droid :: Speech To Text & Text To Speech

Nov 17, 2009

I would like to be able to say an email or text message to myself or my wife sometimes. When I hold down the input field I get an input choice menu but the only option there is the Android Keyboard.Am I doing it wrong?What am I missing? I would also like to have it read emails to me, and word docs (or just .txt).I have a Kindle but my phone is a little more convenient for something I would rather read in bits and pieces while walking to and fro the car or whatever.

General :: Text To Speech On Selected Text?

Sep 7, 2013

I wonder if there is ability to replicate this feature from iOS :

In iOS you can turn on Accessibility function that add the "Speak" button to the "selection menu". And if you click, it would turn on Text To Speech engine and read selected text. Can I do the same thing in Android ?

PS: I assume that regular app could not modify "copy, paste, cut menu" so I probably need custom ROM. (I'm particularly interested Nexus 7 2013 solution, but I assume that solution should be universal because it is just modification to the "Selection menu" and add button)

Android : Way To Import GPX / KML With Text To Speech?

Apr 28, 2010

I'm cycling with friends of me (organized rides). but I still want to cycle those roads again. I record the track everytime with Cardiotrainer and I can export those workouts to an GPX or KML file. Is there a program were I can import the GPX or KML file and that program exports audio as "within 100 meters go left". A sort of GPS navigation but with audio export and the possibility to imort an GPX and/or KML file. It is necessary that the program can say it in audio and not only text because my Nexus One will be in my backpack.

Android : SMS App With Text To Speech Via Bluetooth

Apr 19, 2010

I've done a lot of searching for this & haven't found a good solution. Please forgive me if it's already posted, I've really tried to find it!I have a G1, and a Motorola bluetooth headset. I am searching for an app that will speak incoming text messages out loud, both through speaker and bluetooth. Voice-to-text for replies would be a nice bonus but not mandatory.I've tried and it does work with the native Android messaging to read texts out loud, but it's speaker-only and will not work with bluetooth headsets. Also, there's no reply via speech-to-text. It also won't recognize or work with Handcent or other messaging programs at all.I am currently trying Handcent, and while I like a lot of the features, it doesn't seem to have any bluetooth support. Also, it doesn't seem automatically speak texts upon receipt although I've seen posts saying it will? There is a button you can click upon receiving an incoming SMS message popup, but by the time you look down & find the button to click it to "read" the text out loud it's kind of pointless. And the voice recognition for speech-to-text is really wonky, but if the rest of it worked (automatically reading messages out loud, and through bluetooth headsets).It seems like it would be such a commonly used app. Is there a good SMS program with these features?

Android :: Speech To Text (STT) Support On Keyboard

Jul 22, 2010

We have a 2.1 sdk(eclair) version Samsung device, which has virtual keyboard with a microphone indicator to support speech to text (STT). Our application is mostly a text entry application and uses Inputconnection class and committext method to recognize the inputs and put all the entered text on display. In swype input mode, if we press the microphone, the voice recognition automatically runs(shows recording interface, records, synthesizes and sends text to commit text, and hence it is working. However, for "Android keyboard" input , the recording interface automatically shows up, however, we do not receive committext callback, so nothing is updated on our text box after the recording. So, seems we have 2 options:

1. Disable only the mike/microphone keys visibility on the Android keypad. How can this be done?

2. Have the STT to work on the Android keyboard. Seems that the keypad is automatically starting a recording interface - hence we do not know how to even integrate the voice recognition program given in the sdk 2.1 examples file. How can we detect the microphone/mike key was pressed? Or how can we do this?

Android :: Making Text To Speech Wrapper

Apr 6, 2010

I am attempting to create a wrapper class for Google Android's Text-To-Speech functionality. However, I'm having trouble finding a way to have the system pause until after the onInit function has finished. Attached at the bottom is something of a solution I created based on what I found here: /questions/ 1160876/android-speech-how-can-you-read-text-in-android However, this solution does not seem to work. Any thoughts on why this might not be working, or what would be a good idea in order to make sure that any Speak() calls happen after my onInit() call? public class SpeechSynth implements OnInitListener
{private TextToSpeech tts;
static final int TTS_CHECK_CODE = 0;
private int ready = 0;
private ReentrantLock waitForInitLock = new ReentrantLock();
SpeechSynth( Activity screen )
{ ready = 0;
tts = new TextToSpeech( screen, this );
public void onInit(int status)
{ if (status == TextToSpeech.SUCCESS)
{ready = 1;
} waitForInitLock.unlock();
}public int Speak( String text )
{ if( ready == 1 )
{tts.speak(text, TextToSpeech.QUEUE_ADD, null);
return 1;
} else
{ return 0;
} I have been able to make it so that I can pass a string of text through the constructor, then have it played in the onInit() function. However, I would really like to avoid having to destroy and re-create the whole text-to-speech engine every time I need to have my program say something different.
