    Voice Output on even when playing audio/vido

    Is there a way / switch to enable the voice output of the LOAD command even when audio / video is playing?

    I know there is the SAY command but you can't run anything with this command.

    Welcome to the forums! I am not quite sure what you mean. Are you trying to play a .Wav file or something that has speech in it?

    The say command is for using the Text to speech engine to say whatever you want it to, and the load command is used to load a skin, so that's why I am not quite sure what you are trying to do.

    I don't believe so. Also I think this questions has been asked before and Guino has given his reasons for not implementing this

    This will say AUDIO every time you press your audio button even with music going

    "AUDIO","LOAD;audio_player.skin||SAY;AUDIO"

    I use this to announce Track name on song start - with option to shut off tho
    Works in all players XM, Audio, Surius, Radio and so on


    "ONSONGSTART","SAYSONG"

    "SAYSONG","SETVARBYCODE;SAYSONGNAME;TRACKNAME||SAY ;$SAYSONGNAME$"

    Chuck, can you elaborate on this more? The "ONSONGSTART" is not in the skincommands.txt file.

    Putting those lines in the exectbl.ini doe snot seem to work, so is one of the lines a button code? Hmmm if that is the case, then it would not need the onsongstart command........so it's probably not.

    Also how are you enabling/disabling this option, if they are lines in the exectbl.ini file?

    Any help is appreciated, and would be nice feature to have, but would need the ability of turning it off, as you mentioned, as it could get a little old all the time

    Code:
    Make sure you don’t have "ONSONGSTART",”” in the ExecTBL.ini in the RR folder
    
    rr.ini
    voice=true
    
    
    This is the way I have it in my skin
    "ONSONGSTART","BYVAR;ANNOUNCESONG;<<SAYSONG”
    "SAYSONG","SETVARBYCODE;SAYSONGNAME;TRACKNAME||SAY;$SAYSONGNAME$"
    
    
    Button
    BYVAR;ANNOUNCESONG;SETVAR;ANNOUNCESONG;1<<SETVAR;ANNOUNCESONG;0||SAVETOINI;ANNOUNCESONG;$ANNOUNCESONG$",""
    
    Label
    “BYVAR;ANNOUNCESONG;Voice Songs Off<<=Voice Songs On"

    There does seen to be a problem with the say command and XM Sirius.

    When you run the say command it mutes xm then talks but it never unmutes xm – or sirius
