    NavTones & Celebrity Voices

    Hey all, just bought the software, and begining the plans for installing in my Charger.

    I have looked on the site for the answer, but it hasn't been updated latley, so I will pose it again...

    When will the Celebrity voice feature be active?

    can anyone from streetdeck give a heads up on this or is it "top secret" and no discussion on it is allowed.

    I did however for those intrested and don't know this, downloaded a voice from Cepstral (sp?) his was an English voice named Lawerence. Worked flawlessly with Streetdeck as it is a windows voice addon. Much better listening a to a semi-sauve (aloughth sometimes in broken english) voice instead of da** Microsoft Sam and all those.

    If you have the full version of Streetdeck, you should have at least 6 other choices in the voices option. I think Streetdeck Heathers voice is the sexiest.

    I was not familiar with this NavTones until reading this thread which lead me to google it. I could be missing something, but it looked to me like it's for TomTom systems.

    Where did you buy the software from that's for Windows/Streetdeck?

    I have never used this feature. I believe the coding is in SD and we need to just purchase licenses. This will be brought to the attention of management. I will let you know the results.

    Yeah I bought the Lite version and then bought the mappoint system. I don't know where they got heather from for thier system, but here are some voices that you can download onto windows, (mind you these are demos, they have links to buy the full version for 29.99). I just would like to have the Celebrity voices feature active. I beleive it was in another post from earlier in the year that it was linked to the NavTones voices but they were having licensing issues ...ahh found it from Novemeber of 2006, from god of CPU "The celebrity voices are from NavTones and should be available soon. We just have some more paper work to complete." So, new version "Celebrity Voices"? - COOL!!!

    Thanks for responding to this, I just would love to see this active. I mean Lawrence is much better to listen to than MS Sam and them, but Mr. T, or Gary Busey, now taht shuold be an entertaining ride!

    Here is what we have left to do:

    • Sign the license agreement with Navtones
    • Document the installation
    • Work out the details of distribution. (download from navtones.com?) sell on mp3car store? Sell on navtones.com?
    This probably won’t happen for a while.
    Unless there are dozens of people who want this, it is more important for us to focus on other issues. (bugs, hd radio, blutooth)
