Adding text-to-speech functionality to Media Engine
I've been taking a look at how easy it would be to add text-to-speech functionality.
The best solution I think would be to use the Microsoft Text-to-Speech Engine which is built in to Win XP and can be installed on 98/2000.
Ultimatly this could be used with GPS support, but would be good as a general option for 'speaking' the option as you select it. The other advantage with the Microsoft Engine is you have a range of different voices that you can select.
Moving on from this, we could also look to provide voice recognition using the Microsoft Speech Recognition Engine, again built into XP and can be installed on 98/2000.
What do you all think? I don't mind looking into adding this in, but what arrangements are there at the moment for assisting with Media Engine development?
