Hello,
I would like to add speech to a clock project I have been working on however the examples I have been trying to use will not work does anyone know of a library to create audio that will say the current time when a button is pressed

bigbuck83

here is what I was going to start with and modify to say what I would like but there are so many errors when I try to upload this...........I am using the exact hardware listed in the link

there is the link never noticed it didn't post the issue is the talkie file


Vocab_US_Clock.ino:9:20: error: talkie.h: No such file or directory
Vocab_US_Clock:11: error: 'Talkie' does not name a type
Vocab_US_Clock.ino: In function 'void setup()':
Vocab_US_Clock:50: error: 'voice' was not declared in this scope
Vocab_US_Clock:53: error: 'spTHE' was not declared in this scope

There is a library that you need to download and install in the proper place. Nothing in your post suggests that you've done that.

I have imported vocab_us_clock into my arduino library and it loads the sketch into the window however once I try to verify I get the talkie.h file error I cannot seem to get the entire master zip file to download into the arduino library ...........anymore suggestions

I am going to ask that someone else download this into there arduino and tell me if it works so I can figure out what I am doing wrong otherwise I am lost with this one.........thanks for the advice in advance

That library is not a core library, and, therefore, doesn't belong in the Arduino libraries folder.

What happens when you try, as in why can't you, is clearly important. Why don't you describe that?

bigbuck83

I now have everything imported all of the files as directed you can see in the attached link.....when I try to verify any of those sketches I get the talkie.h error

PaulS

Your link directs to:
https://github.com/going-digital/Talkie

That link has a download button that downloads a zip file that DOES contain talkie.h.

Now, did you download that file? Where did you unzip it? Did you rename anything? The zip file is not named in a way that the Arduino IDE likes.

Locate the Arduino directory where your sketches are saved. On windows this would typically be under My Documents\Arduino or similar.

Locate the libraries directory under that. Each non-core library that has been installed should be represented by a directory here. The name of the directory is the name of the library. There should be a header file which has the same name as the library with a .h extension under there.

Once you have located the folder associated with the library you're using, you should find a file talkie.h inside it. If you don't then you have not installed the library correctly.

Thanks for the link to this!!!
I install it and it sounds great.  8)
You have to download the "Talkie-master.zip" file.
Un-zip it and open the "Talkie-Master folder"
When you get to the "Talkie" folder copy that folder and paste it in the Arduino library.
Open the IDE and it should compile correctly.
Thanks again!!!

The "Tom's Diner demo" is AMAZING!!!! :)
It's all about the skills

Ok glad it works for someone I still cannot get it to work .......................can you hear the frustration

AWOL

Frustration?
Yes, it is frustrating when people don't give details of what they can see and instead just say "still cannot get it to work"

see AWOL I got it to work............ being the file talkie file to download into the arduino IDE all it took is a pointless comment from you and it works now thanks
