As being one of the only blind female pilots in here voice on that
part of the towercommunication would be a good idea instead of as it
is now using the synth for it .
However there is one thing. If we should have that one would have to
make all the words for it and it would have to be called each time as
it is for ATIS.
It is not a bad idea at all just saying :)
As for streaming text to speach i do that all the time with a lot of
the instruments dme, vor, gps, rpm for the engine, throttle, heading
altitude ground view and so on.
Okies when i started in here i had AndersG and Jester helping me
making it work that way that it streamed it to the speach that is in
my mac but the selution was simply not good and responsive enough.
I ended up installing a free speach that i also use on my windows
box... could we forget i admitted that ?
It really did not work in a fast and mature way til i did.
So 2 things are important if you want ot use speach on flightgear.
1: what speach do you like "which one can your brain handle at over
370 words pr minute and yes it sometimes is that hectic round ksfo,
cause of all the pilots chittering .
2 how much memory does the speach use from your computer ?
well i started with "alex" for mac and as much as i adore him he was
simply not good enough for the task, i guess the fact that i fly from
a mac book air did not help metters either :)
I just found eham for some days ago. thanks for a nice place to fly !:)
