    Thumbs up Create Custom Voice Announcement Ringtones

    Advertisement



    In honor of my 100th post, I am going to provide a link for those that would like to have custom voice announcements as their ringtones. AT&T Labs - Research has a Text to Speech demo site that allows you to type in up to 300 characters and produce a wav file for download. You can choose from several different voice stiles in multiple languages for the output files.

    What you need to do once in the site is to select the voice and language, then type the text you want spoken, using punctuation as normal. Once you have what you want either click the speak or the Download button. Once you have it saying what you want then download it. I would recommend renaming it as it produces an un-rememorable file name.

    Be sure to read the FAQ page for advanced options in producing the spoken file.

    For those that have BBs that can play wav ringtones you can go directly to the site using the Internet Browser and create and download directly from there to your BB.

    Most of my alerts for Phone Calls and Messages have been created on this site. Using the 4.1.x.x. Exceptions, when each of my kids calls his or her name is announced along with an appropriate snide remark. ;-)


    This is the Site

    Enjoy
    Rcbjr

    Amazing, try adding a few naughty words and then getting the accents to say them. Hilarious!

    Great one Rcb!
    I think I had been to this site when I had my 7100i, so there was noting I could do with this, now I can!

    Glad you like it, but I forgot to add that you might want to rename the files when you save them. The site tags them with some ungodly string of characters that make no sense

    Re: Create Custom Voice Announcement Ringtones

    This is such a cool site, I have a wav to mp3 converter but I don't know if a mp3 to adp converter exists to download the tones to my 7105t. I believe that would work if I had a converter and uploaded them to a site to dowload to my bb.

    If you could find a converter it should work. I originally was converting them to mp3. You might search SourceForge.org for a open source wav to adp converter.

    Hope this helps

    Re: Create Custom Voice Announcement Ringtones

    The main reason I like these ringtones are I have a ringtone associated to email, bbm, mms, sms, etc. That way I know before even looking at the phone which type of message it is...That and I hate ringtones going off whenever I get a message. To me the voice is a ton more convienent to hear to rather than having to memorize which sounds mean what.

    Yeah, and when my ex calls the announcement is in French. And so are my BB messenger Alerts. That way only a couple of people at work know what is coming in.
