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!

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?

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 ...

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  fussg√§ngermodus gestartet",
      "navigation_too_far_from_track": "Track liegt %D Richtung %N1 Uhr",
      "tts_set": "die sprachausgabe wurde aktiviert",

Did I do someting wrong?

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 ...
