hi to all,

i use now navit on my lenovo yoga tab 2 and i really love it. it was a little bit tricky to find out how it communicate to the gps-sensor, but i found a way.
the "bigger" problem for me is now to get the windows-sapi-tts voice working.
i use a say.exe and all is working, but i cannot figure out to let the voice say correct ü, ä, ß asf. (i am from austria), because of the utf-8 .....
can anybody give me a suggestion how to fix it?

many thanks

hi harpmaster,

it seems, that Windows 8.1 does not support umlaute.

I tried example of windows speech recognition on Windows 10 with umlaute and it worked.

So, Navit couldn't help here.

Could you please write down your approach with say.ex on our wiki?
https://wiki.navit-project.org/index.php/Speech

Could you please write down how to get Navit running on your Yoga.
To extend our gallery a photo running Navit on your Yoga would be nice.

Thx.

Best regards,
zintor

hi zintor,

many thanks for your response. windows text to speech is working with all of my experiments in win 7,8 and 10 as a normal reader. for this i am using balabolka. for navit i use the comand-line-utility of balabolka, put it in the folder where the navit.exe is located and in the navit.xml instead of

<speech type="espeak" cps="15"/>

i use

<speech type="cmdline" data="balcon.exe -t %s" />

that's one way, very simple, but works only in win 8 and 10 where text to speech is preinstalled ....

but in navit it doesn't work for german and of course i changed the language like

<config xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude" language="de_AT">
or
<config xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude" language="de_DE">

in the next days i will write the things for the wiki ....

thank you very much!

contributor of GitHub mdankov has mailed to balabolka developer Ilya Morozov and he changed the comand-line-utility of balabolka. so the new one can handle utf-8 code.

so the commands are for example

if you want to use the first voice selcted in sapi.cpl (systemvoice win 8 and 10 hedda)

speech type="cmdline" data="balcon.exe -enc utf8 -t %s"

if you have installed more than one voices use for example

speech type="cmdline" data="balcon.exe -enc utf8 -n hedda -t %s"
speech type="cmdline" data="balcon.exe -enc utf8 -n steffi -t %s"
speech type="cmdline" data="balcon.exe -enc utf8 -n helena -t %s"
