See what happens when you merge Mario, Lego and Plasticine and stick it all on your monitor.
Ian seems to think we’ve not had much to do this Friday afternoon but we were waiting for a build to finish, your honour 🙂
I’ve been successfully using Microsoft’s Speech API (SAPI) in Visual Studio 2005 to create samples to demonstrate how we can harness text-to-speech capabilities. However, to get this to work with nAnt I had to be able to reference the Microsoft Speech COM component in the <references> section in a nAnt build file.
One thing that’s not instantly clear from the documentation is how to play back the ‘standard.pcm’ file that the standard demonstration application they provide generates. To be fair to them, they do tell you that the generated file is a PCM wave file which is 16-bit 8kHz. What they leave out of the documentation is any kind of suggestion of the software capable of playing this back easily.
