Output messages according to sensors input

Hey guys i am working on a project that i need according to distance to produce-output the right message!

for example distance goes under 20cm produce message ALERT with a speaker

I have already tried to use free Talkie library but as it seems i cant produce a message all the time according with the if statement but only when arduino reset button is been pressed...ANY HELP would be much appreciated !Thanks!

Post the code that only produces audio output when the Arduino is reset and your attempt to trigger output when an if statement returns true

HERE IS THE CODE USING TALKIE LIBRARY TO PRODUCE MESSAGES GUYS ! i dont know if i am doing something wrong OR THE LIBRARY CAN RUN ONLY WHEN THE ARDUINO RESES OR IS POWERED AND NOT IN A LOOP

#include “talkie.h”

Talkie voice;

Do you see the expected value when you print cm ?
Does the buzzer work when cm is <= 10 ?

Yea the buzzer works under 10cm.. When i connect arduino with pc or with the battery when i put an item under 10cm it says DANGER with success and then the buzzer follows,the problem is that if i again try to put an item under 10cm the voice message wont come out only the buzzer will work !IT DOESNT WORK CONTINEOSLY BUT ONLY WHEN THE ARDUINO IS FIRST POWERED ON !

It would appear that the library is hard coded to use pin 3

What do you mean ? What this have to do with my problem i mean i have the jump wire connected to pin 3..The problem is that the speaker only procuse the message the first time arduino is powered or when the reset button is preesed and not all the time as i would like it to work :confused:
