Title: TTS voices
Post by: menion on July 07, 2013, 14:44:19
Warning: you do not need to do anything like this, to make TTS works in Locus. These files are already included in Locus!.

I'll use this topic, as one of many, to discuss new system of TTS for Locus

The main problem of TTS is the correct spelling of numbers. To make it work on 100%, I created a system where all texts are stored in text files in a usable format prepared for reading.
In English it's not so bad, there are only a one/first, but in Czech are four possibilities jeden/jednu/první/prvním ;). So in this file may be arrays names numbers_NX where X is 1 - 5. You may then use these numbers in action texts.

Also, format of this file is JSON. It's a little bit complicated to write but much easier to read and work with it

How to help/translate

Edited 13. 10. 2019

TTS Files are stored on GitHub repository (https://github.com/asamm/locus-map-tts-commands). All necessary information will be wrote on Wiki of the project.

FYI
Please pay attention:
Different TTS engines --> Different pronunciation

eg:
Google TTS, Samsung TTS, SVOX Classic TTS (http://https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.svox.classic) or IVONA (http://https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ivona.tts),...
...sounds similar - but not identical.

But now, we have the ability to customize these differences.
You're on the right way Menion - thx
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on July 07, 2013, 19:57:04
you're both crazy. I wanted to just discuss if such format is usable and you both completely translated all texts :)

ta-ka, there should be no problem to use "1": "1", but in this case, you may completely remove whole "numbers_N1", part and instead of "%N1", just use "%V". Locus will then use directly value without converting over "numbers_N1" parameters. Anyway reason for these number formats is as gynta wrote. Different TTS engines has different pronunciation and that's why I wrote all numbers as texts. You can clearly see it mainly in czech where were needed four different number formats
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: ta-ka on July 07, 2013, 20:30:17
Hi, gynta and menion. Thanks for information.
When testing version comes, I'll see(listen to), which text(%N1) or number(%V) gives better results.
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on July 12, 2013, 20:49:03
so, new test version is out, so it should be possible to test this feature.

Currently your translations AREN'T inside Locus! Testing method is simple. Choose in Locus for example german language or set your device to german and put "de.txt" file into root directory of Locus. So for example "mnt/sdcard/Locus/de.txt".

Thanks to this, when you choose TTS in locus, it firstly check for this file, then for internal file and if non of this is found, it use older default TTS system

feel free to ask if something will not work
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on July 13, 2013, 07:55:25
you're sitting home, enabled navigation, moving with map center, car is moving and no sound? ;)

then change parameter in config file "speed_for_moving_cursor_when_gps_off" to some value, like "20" (this means speed 72km/h)
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: ta-ka on July 13, 2013, 19:26:53
By setting speed parameter to 20.0 and renaming en.txt to en.tts, the voice simulation works now.

I'm testing TTS navigation for now under the condition:
Locus Language : English
TTS Engine : Google TTS
Compute source : MapQuest

1. For "approximately after %N1 kilometers",
'%N1' is not replaced with numbers but is pronounced literally.

2. Tapping [Settings] -> [Navigation] -> [Choose voice] -> [Text-to-speech] or
   [Nav button] -> [Choose voice] -> [Text-to-speech] during navigation,
   the device speaks "You've arrived at your destination".  Isn't it strange?

3. It seems that the last voice before a turning point is usually given at 200 meter before the point.
Is this reasonable distance? It may be good for Cars but too far for cycle and for Foot.
Well I'm not sure if this issue should be discussed here now but I wrote it just to remember...
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on July 14, 2013, 12:01:24
I was just a day on small "trip" by car and
1. may confirm, funny issue, I'll fix it

2. I used this text for "information" voice that confirm, your voice works. Anyway I'll add there some text specially for this case

3. imagine Locus things you still ride 72km/h. Distance for voice commands is computed by your speed and because you ride still too fast, last distance should be 200m. Set value to 10.0 and you'll hear difference

I think it may be nice if the information voice text also appears as a 'TEST PHRASE' in Text-to-speech settings dialogue. It is currently "Do you like Locus?" which is shared with the Main menu as a section title.

Oh. I see. I didn't notice that the voice depends on the speed. Sorry. I just selected 'Cycle' or 'Foot' for route calculation.

edit
I've just updated ja.txt and en.txt at my first post in this topic.
Please note that I changed identifier name of "dist_mil" to ''dist_mile"

Well I know it's just an id-name and any text can be used if the id-name between config file and source code is consistent. But, mil is a different unit in length and not an abbreviation of mile. So I think it is better to change...

I've got some clue. The key may be decimal number in distance and internal/external .tts file.

When .tts file exists in Locus folder and distance value is decimal number (not integer number)
for example 1.5 km, the problem seems occur.

But when there is no .tts files in Locus folder, ie internal tts file is used, '%N1' is properly replaced and
no problem happen even if distance value is decimal number.

Please check the symbols for the waypoints: Usually they indicate turn left, right etc and the last waypoint should have a flag indicating the destination. But not for all Locus routing services this is created, e.g. for the inofficial google routing service the destination waypoint is missing.
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: ta-ka on July 18, 2013, 16:38:02
I've heard the voice "You've arrived at your destination".
Try attached the gpx file for navigation test.
With this gpx file, you will also hear that the '%N1' is pronounced literally.

By the way, who fixed my mistake in the en.txt? Thanks.

An already reported problem - ignore it yet.

np ;) tiny mistake - had no effects for Locus - only for my eyes :)

@menion: in this thread are two en.txt files - maybe we can remove one of them...

Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on July 19, 2013, 12:42:40
hi guys, I had to change a format a little, you'll see.

Anyway my biggest problem now, is how to work with these files and how to allow others modify them and even keep them updated in locus itself. Any ideas? Because publishing over posts here, is useful for max two tts files. For more, it's crazy. So some shared folder on dropbox/google drive for example?

Yes, I agree. It depends but I haven't figured out what exactly condition is...

@menion
I have an another problem of the unofficial Google route calculation and TTS voice navigation of Japanese roads.

Japan is a left-hand traffic country. But the Google route calculation in Locus wrongly shows right-hand traffic route. Therefore the TTS voice navigate to the opposite direction.

Well, it's an unofficial function but could you please fix this?
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on July 20, 2013, 19:27:40
guys forget on most problems you wrote about here. I was two days in bed so I hope I discovered and fixed most of them today.

Not sure how you want to improve the text but in latest test version it's still the same "x Meter von y Stunden"
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on July 21, 2013, 21:21:49
this is not yet improved ...

I was yesterday working on new "Convert track to navigation route" system, but it seems to be more complicated. Anyway I'll add meanwhile TTS into these configs also.

Btw. what order should be more usable then this?
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: tommi on July 21, 2013, 21:43:32
Hm, I expected this text can also be configured in <country>.ts.
Anyway, the text in German should be "x Meter Richtung y Uhr".

Another question (I admit it's a bit off-topic but has to do with TTS).
There are navigation instructions "after 50m turn right" and later "after 100m turn left" " and sometimes its "after 50m turn right then after 100m turn left". What is the exact condition that Locus concatenates the two instructions??
Or is this info coming from the online routing service

"%D %U word %H word"  ..was ok, but currently we have no string to translate in crowdin.

%Distance
%Unit
%Direction(Hour)

As tommi wrote (his reply was quicker) put it in the *.tts file
but you have to do this also in crowdin, because not all user have an *.tts file in the locus folder...

Google remain unofficial, because their terms-of-use do not allow to use result on other then Google Maps ... funny. Just to explanation

I'm testing this route compute in tokio and I get correct results. May you please write me exact start and end coordinates of your route, so I may test it on my own? Thanks
Title: Re: TTS voices

Please find attached a gpx file which contains start point and end point for route calculation test.
The route should go though the junction which I've shown in the screenshot.
Thanks in advance.
Title: Re: TTS voices

thanks ta-ka, this helps. Google compute of route is little bit weird, so if there will be some more problems, this "gpx" sharing is best way for me to fix it.

Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on July 22, 2013, 18:28:04
ah yes , sorry. These instructions are generated by myself. If there is distance up to 300 metres, between orders, locus say both, otherwise just current. And both are also said only in case, you're closer then 200 to first command

I think the generation of these wpt's with the extensions rteDistance, rteTime, rtePointAction are also one key element for "Convert track to navigation route".
Menion, I'm working together with a new forum member Willy (member name 0709, he does the main work) on a proposal on exactly the same topic "convert track to navigation route".
We would be happy if you would read it and also tell us the problems you see with this feature. Unfortunately the document is not yet ready, you surprised us with your statement about this. I think maybe Thursday/Friday we could give you a reasonable draft. Now after I read you are working on this topic we may skip some parts like motivation etc and concentrate on the technical aspect.
What do you think?
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on July 22, 2013, 19:38:32
sure, possible. I just two days ago created new part of code called "TrackNavigationGenerator". It should have simple purpose. I take track from GPX and put it inside. Result should be same track, together with many waypoints that will have attached these parameters, like rtePointAction etc. So exactly same parameters I generate from track you compute over mapQuest etc. So probably similar to what you do.

I have this already in mind and it should be quite simple. Every track in locus will have button "navigate". If this will be pre-computed (mapQuest, cloudmade, ...) it will work as normal navigation. If not, it will in first step go through "TrackNavigationGenerator" and then .. voala, normal navigation :)

I was just stuck on start, so not much work is done yet

Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: ta-ka on July 23, 2013, 08:47:17
I compared the voice navigation of the google route between version 2.13.1.4 and version 2.13.1.5.

version
2.13.1.4 : (1)take exit right -> (2)stay left -> (3)take exit right
2.13.1.5 : (1)take ramp left -> (2)merge left -> (3)take ramp right

- At the entrance of the JCT (1), the direction is correct now (take ramp left).
- At the middle of the JCT (2), it was correct (stay left), but it becomes wrong (merge left).
- About the end of the JCT(3), there is a difference (exit, ramp) but I don't know which is correct.

Hum...  I think I should prepare another sample for test.
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on July 23, 2013, 12:08:46
thank you for test, I fixed second point so now it should be correct

2.13.1.6 : (1)take ramp left -> (2)stay left -> (3)take ramp right
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: ta-ka on July 29, 2013, 15:26:53
Could you fix another two wrong TTS voice navigation by google route for left-hand traffic?
Please find two sets of start/end points in gpx file. The voice should be "Take ramp left" for both.
Thanks in advance.

Edit:
I've updated ja.tts in this topic (2013-07-29).
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on July 31, 2013, 11:44:41
Google Directions API is still mystery for me ...

in your files are two tracks (four points)

for track 02, this is URL request
http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/dir ... 140.587490 (http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/directions/json?mode=driving&sensor=true&origin=35.936488,140.591986&destination=35.932020,140.587490)

for track 03, is here
http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/dir ... 139.538595 (http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/directions/json?mode=driving&sensor=true&origin=35.812428,139.542877&destination=35.800995,139.538595)

you may see that in track 02 is only HTML instruction for specific point on map. So from this HTML text, I'm trying to get some valuable information which is not always possible, crazy. In track 03, you may see value "maneuver", which fortunately say what to do on this point. This value is anyway in request rarely, so mostly I have to parse values from HTML instructions. Anyway in track 03, I use for "maneuver" : "fork-left" value "Stay left", which is probably more precise, because for "Take ramp left", there is "maneuver" : "ramp-left"

don't know if you understand what I wanted to say :). Just navigation computed by Google is still little bit crazy for me ...
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: ta-ka on July 31, 2013, 20:10:32
Thank you for the detailed explanation.

If I understand the issue, the google route sometimes doesn't contain direction information (left or right) in html instructions and at the same time maneuver is not available, so it's not possible to know which direction to go.

How about an idea to add new entry "take ramp" into en.tts and use it when no direction information is found in instruction? I mean TTS voice just indicate the existence of ramp without its direction.

Title: Re: TTS voices

yes, it's not yet included in this version. Current TTS system in 2.14.0 is just for voice navigation, not for any guiding features

Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on January 12, 2014, 20:28:57
Updated TTS files a little bit. Mainly added TTS commands for 'POI alert' feature

Code: [Select]
12. 01. 2014
- from 'distances_D' removed word 'after' !!. It's needed to put this work to all "actions_A" manually. Mainly to 'action_dist', 'arrive_at_dest_dist', 'turn_u-turn_dist', 'roundabout_dist' and 'roundabout_dist_exit'
- added 'actions_A' for POI alert notification - 'poi_alert_point_X', 'poi_alert_X_points'
- added required numbers for '11' and '12'

If anything isn't clear, let me know!
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: tommi on January 12, 2014, 21:14:49
Please add text for of-track notification, please. The German word by word translation for this is horrible.
What about my idea to allow adding text for other distances than the defined ones as well?
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on January 13, 2014, 07:22:16
now it's possible, so notification added to TTS text file

about distances - is this really needed? Because I still do not see any reason for this. Low distances are just disabled (below around 30m) and for longer is not important if TTS say 350 or 330 m, isn't it?

I'm more interested in the range between 100 and 200m.
Anyway, seems your opinion is changing from time to time:
"About distances in tts file - you have good idea. Currently Locus expect values as are defined in en.tts. But you're right, I should allow to add there values you want. Good point, I'll look at it. Anyway till then, Locus take only values that are defined in en.tts"

yes I remember this. I have anyway changed some parameters that defined when you should hear notification, so in most cases, it should work correctly now. Anyway if you still miss some distances, I can add them into TTS files.

Currently whole system for TTS I use, is not so "free", so there needs to be defined parameters, I allowed in code of Locus. Sorry ...

Please add text for of-track notification, please. The German word by word translation for this is horrible.

now it's possible, so notification added to TTS text file
I tried to adapt my de.tts based on the en.tts from 2.18.07.apk. I see you added a new line for translation "navigation_too_far_from_track". However, I still hear the word-by-word translation and not the new text.

Here a snippet from my Locus/data/tts/de.tts:
      "navigation_start_foot": "die navigation wird im  fussgängermodus gestartet",
      "navigation_too_far_from_track": "Track liegt %D Richtung %N1 Uhr",
      "tts_set": "die sprachausgabe wurde aktiviert",

Did I do someting wrong?

Thank you ta-ka, that helped.
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on January 19, 2014, 15:46:05
yes I had to add this "versions" parameter. Because I need to separate what texts TTS file contain. I decided to always do internal version of texts based on common translation and also these TTS files. If I find TTS file in users language and in version that contain required feature, i'll use this file, otherwise internal translation will be used.

So to be more specific. If user enable TTS for POI alert and has set Japan as langauge, I first check for ja.tts file, then if this file is in version 2. If any of this is not success, I'll use texts generated from translation from crowdin. Simple and I'm sure it will work.

I also spend quite a lot of time on making whole TTS indepenent on navigation, so I think, we should now extend TTS to other tasks in Locus if there will be need ...
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: ta-ka on January 19, 2014, 16:29:01
@tommi
you're welcome :)

@menion
Locus Test 2.18.0.7 creates 'Locus/data/tts/en_sample_v1.tts' if it doesn't exist, but actual version is '2'. So, the file name should be 'en_sample_v2.tts' or simply 'en_sample.tts' would be OK because the version is written in the file.

I also spend quite a lot of time on making whole TTS indepenent on navigation, so I think, we should now extend TTS to other tasks in Locus if there will be need ...
You mean, for example, Locus TTS could be extended to tell us how many kilo-meters travelled or how long time you travelled for every certain distance/time during track recording?  If so, it's exciting! ;D
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on January 19, 2014, 16:31:46
you're right with the file ... thanks

and yes it can. Because I also run a little, I plan during this year finish our (my mainly) long fight with "Navigation generator" and also add better support for some sport activities, like TTS notifications during track record, also some notifications on for example heart rate values, zones etc. We will see, but I believe this won't be a big problem now ...

Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on March 23, 2015, 13:42:20
Hi guys,

I'm currently in need of improved version of TTS commands. Example in worst language ever - Czech :).

- 1 metr
- 1.1 metru
- 2 metry
- 5 metrů

Problem here is, that current TTS fiels do not have support for some decimal distances. And I need them for for example 1.25 kilometers value. So I've created version 3 of TTS files where all distances for kilometres and miles now do not contains value "Approximately" as before. Instead of, there are precise values like for metres, feet etc.

I've also added new parameter "%NDec meters, 0, Inf" , where for %NDec will be supplied decimal number formatted by Locus and this will be applied to all decimal numbers. Is it usable also for other languages then Czech and English? I just need to know, if decimal number are read in your language all same, like in Czech or English. Like 1.1 kilometers, also 1.5 kilometers, also 135.34 kilometers etc.

In TTS is also added one new section for time formatting. I'm preparing one new nice feature :).

EDIT: btw. if someone of you improve german TTS file, I'll publish test version today ;). Thanks
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: balloni55 on March 23, 2015, 14:30:57
Hello menion,
possible way of speaking in german language:

1.1 kilometers > Eins Komma Eins Kilometer

1.5 kilometers > Eins Komma Fünf Kilometer   
                  or >  Eineinhalb Kilometer

1.25 kilometers > Eins Komma Zwei Fünf Kilometer     
        note: not Eins Komma Fünfundzwanzig, each decimal numer is spoken behind the other
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on March 23, 2015, 14:33:56
fine, in all cases, spoken distance ends with "Kilometer", fine. Same in Czech and also in English. So it should be ok then. Thanks
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: ta-ka on March 23, 2015, 15:30:14
Hi menion,
In Japanese, it's always "kilometer" for any decimal numbers.

In TTS is also added one new section for time formatting. I'm preparing one new nice feature :).
I guess this is for estimated amount of time to destination and not for estimated time of arrival. I would like to be sure.

Hi menion,

And time - is purpose important? Because non of your options is correct. Anyway in future it should be used for various purpose

My guess was wrong... :'(  Never mind.
I asked the question because there are different spoken words for 'duration time' and 'exact time'.
So, the various purpose contains only one type of them, it shouldn't be a problem.
But if both types are mixed, it will be a problem.

If there is no need to replace the digits in "numbers_N1", is it allowed to make it empty?
Code: [Select]
},
"numbers_N1": { },
"numbers_N2": {
Or, is it allowed to completely remove it?
Code: [Select]
},
"numbers_N2": {

In ja.tts, "numbers_N1" doesn't contain the words to replace but only digits like follows.
Code: [Select]
"numbers_N1": {
      "1": "1",
      "2": "2",
      "3": "3",
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on April 03, 2015, 13:09:25
that's what I wanted to say you. I think there have to be at least empty N1 category. Locus tries to find required "translation" (for example for "1" in English - "one") and if there is no such translation, number itself is send to TTS engine. In languages where numbers are always same it is not a problem.

It is useful for languages like Czech, where exists many various of word "one" - jeden, jedna, jedno, etc.
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: ta-ka on April 03, 2015, 14:13:35
In case of popular freely available Japanese TTS system in android like Google TTS or KDDI N2TTS, passing numbers as digits to the TTS system gives satisfiable results for cardinal numbers, as the TTS system takes care of different pronunciations. Only ordinal numbers have to be replaced in Locus. So, I'm going to test and update ja.tts.

I tested ja.tts with empty "numbers_N1" as shown the first code in post #86, and got an error message below just after locus start to speak something. There was no force close. Locus kept working but voices of Navigation/Guidance/Training were complicated mixture of Japanese and English.

Issue was in TTS file, where were no configuration for '0' minutes. Please check modified EN or CZ file what I mean (extra '0' parameter in TIMES_T1 container.

@ta-ka, problem with comma should be a problem. It's weird that TTS reads it, weird. Google TTS or Czech Ivona TTS reads it correctly - just as a small break. Hmm ...

Is the adding 'comma' hard coded in the program source? If so, how about to take it out to ??.tts/crowdin text as a parameter.

Code: [Select]
"short_pause": ",""short_pause" can be 'comma' or 'white space' or any other appropriate character depending on Language and TTS engine.

Btw, reading balloni and your post, I confirmed Japanese Google TTS doesn't speak comma, too.  However KDDI N2TTS speaks comma...
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: gynta on April 07, 2015, 23:06:25
@ta-ka: adding "separator" to tts is not something I want. Main reason why TTS file was created, is to be able to define some special texts that will TTS engine read correctly. Because some TTS engines reads this correctly, some not, I'll try to think and find some general solution.
Seems it is a long known global problem: https://code.google.com/p/ankidroid/issues/detail?id=907 and some other pages
Hmm as I think about it, I'll try to next version add a dot instead of comma.

However KDDI N2TTS speaks comma...
Think "KDDI N2TTS" only known in asia? Isn't it?
So can't check this TTS-engine.

After some tests with "IVONA" "Samsung" "SVOX" and "Google":

SamsungTT german "Hallo , Peter" read a "comma"
SamsungTT german "Hallo, Peter" ignores the "comma"
SamsungTT english "Hello , Peter" ignores the "comma"
SamsungTT english "Hello, Peter" ignores the "comma"

Only the combination "Hello-space-comma-space-Peter" with german Samsung brings a problem.
All other TTS-engines and combinations ignores the "comma"

@Menion is there any "%X-space-comma-space-word" combination inside Locus TTS?
should be "%X-coma-space-word".
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: ta-ka on April 08, 2015, 06:20:52
I post here about the discussion of comma and tts.

I'll try to think and find some general solution.
Hmm as I think about it, I'll try to next version add a dot instead of comma.
I'm afraid but "dot" won't be a general solution. I confirmed it is literally pronounced by N2TTS as shown in a video below.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/a99451wtokegpz0/20150408_tts_comma_period.mp4?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/a99451wtokegpz0/20150408_tts_comma_period.mp4?dl=0)

Main reason why TTS file was created, is to be able to define some special texts that will TTS engine read correctly.
Because some TTS engines reads this correctly, some not,
To read, or not to read, that is the question. 8)
Since "," and "." are not punctuations but special symbols in Japanese, it makes a sense that N2TTS pronounce it literally. On the other hand, it is known that "," and "." are punctuations in a lot of languages in the world. So, it also makes a sense that Japanese Google TTS doesn't pronounce it but put a pause for convenience. Which is correct?  It is difficult to say.

Japanese punctuations are "、" and "。" which correspond "," and "." respectively. When we read Japanese text, we put a short pause at "、" and a longer pause at "。". (We learn it at primary school ;)) Please note that both Google TTS and KDDI N2TTS put a pause on "、" and "。" and don't pronounce them. It is correct behaviour.

adding "separator" to tts is not something I want.
Then how about to introduce punctuations entry in tts file and put it between variables? (period is for further compatibility.)
"comma": ","
"period": "."
In fact, I usually translate "," to "、" in ja.tts and crowdin.

Think "KDDI N2TTS" only known in asia? Isn't it?
So can't check this TTS-engine.
@gynta Thanks for trying to test even Japanese TTS :). I think it is Japanese language specific TTS. Is it possible to open google play with this url?

Post by: ta-ka on April 16, 2015, 02:51:16
I've confirmed that the warning message "incorrectly initialized action %N1" still appears in 3.7.1.6 and in this case the voice system of Locus falls back to crowdin text base. I'm sure that empty "numbers_N1" in tts file cause the issue and it's possible to reproduce it by using attached en.tts.

Now, I would like to ask again whether empty "numbers_N1" is a valid format or not. If valid, please fix the issue to properly load tts file. (for both tts file integrated in Locus and placed at data/tts folder.) If invalid, I'll re-modify ja.tts at google drive with non-empty "numbers_N1".

I've just added a new vesion (4) of RU translate.

Thank you. No need to inform me about this anymore. I've just completed script that download translations from Crowdin, updates TTS and some other stuff before release, so there should be always fresh data.

Video demo: https://youtu.be/h2FcSWFMvkY
Shows Flip cover proximity control by DTSO app and Locus Navigation in action.
The idea of using proximity sensor to light up the screen in such a useful way is brilliant! It could help to eliminate the necessity of pushing the phone's button every time to unlock.

Could you please add a new variable "times_T2" in tts file to be used for 'current time' in training manager?

In beta version 3.21.1.18, it seems that "times_T1" is used to express current time. But it is not neccessary for english because, for example, 9:15 is pronounced as nine-fifteen without hour(s) and minute(s). On the other hand for japanese, additional words after 9 and 15 are required and those words are different from "times_T1".

Hi ta-ka, check new version 5 of tts files, there should be all you need. Let me know if some of changes won't be clear, thanks!

Hi, menion.
Thanks for very fast response as usual :)  I've uploaded ja.tts v5 file to google drive.
Here is my modifications from v4:
1. modified value_day_time value_time_current from "%T1" to "%T2"
2. renamed heart_rate_value to value_heart_rate
3. added "paces_P1"
4. In "times_T2", removed "parent": "T1" and created "hours", "minutes" and "seconds"

EDIT: updated for v5 (24.2.2017)

That is exactly what is needed! Thanks, I'll today publish new Beta so you will have chance to test it ...

Hi, menion.
I've updated ja.tts for v5 (24.2.2017).  Please confirm and fix followings.
en.tts: parameter for 'value_speed_avg_interval' and 'value_speed_avg_track' should be "%V1" but not "%D1".
README.txt: 'value_day_time' -> 'value_time_current'

uploaded version 5 for the Russian language ...
container 'timer_T2' decided not to add - not sure how it will affect
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: menion on March 05, 2017, 13:15:08
amazing thanks. T2 is optional so as long as you do not use it in "actions", there should be no problem.
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: Magellan on March 05, 2017, 16:31:10
Russian translation changed.
The word "interval" is replaced by "period"  ("Интервал" --> "Отрезок")
So it must be better. :)

Thank you for information. No worry ... these files are updated automatically when APK file ( installation file ) is created, so they should be always updated.

I want to remind tts translators that tts files on google drive has been (silently :P) updated to version 6. (or did I miss announcement?)
Title: Re: TTS voices
Post by: gynta on April 19, 2017, 18:58:23
Code: [Select]
{
"version": 6,
"language": "en",
"actions_A": {
...
...
hmmm  ::)

Well yes, it was "silently" :). Changes was not so big and I also made a system that if there will be "only" version 5, it will be still used and missing content will be translated manually from texts from crowdin ( like when this file is missing ).

Anyway thanks ta-ka :).

Parameter "%S" in "*.tts "
Code: [Select]
"merge_left_on": "merge left on road %S",
...
"pass_point": "%S",
...
"pass_point_dist": "%S after %D2",
...
"poi_alert_point_X": "Point %S lies %D2 on %N1 o'clock"
stopped voicing?
or am I expecting the wrong?
expected Point name...

I'm not aware of any problem here.
You may try POI alert feature to confirm functionality.
If you wants to hear names of points during navigation, they needs to be a "Via points" generated in Route planner for example.
