    Smile How to do text-to-speech over a phone call?

    Hi, Guys,

    Is it possible to read a piece of custom message using the built-in speech engine over a call?

    The reason I'm asking is because I'm intending to write a little application that will read a custom message received via SMS over the call.

    I can't quite find any reference to pipe the audio output from the speech engine through the call instead of the built-in speaker.

    Thank you in advance for any pointers!

    Hi losheng and welcome to the Pys60 Dibo !

    I just tested the audio.say() function on my Mobile during a call.

    Thus you can have the output from audio.say during the call.

    *Tested on Nokia N95 !

    Re: How to do text-to-speech over a phone call?

    Hi, Guys,

    Thank you for the welcome and the replies. But I'm not sure if I managed to expressed my question clearly: what I want to do is that one receiving an sms, the phone will make a call to a third party, and read the received sms to the person.

    When i tried the following:

    telephone.dial(<some_number>)
    audio.say("Hi, I'm here to relay the message")
    telephone.hang_up()

    The words were spoken over the phone's speaker, but the receiver cannot hear the words. What I would like to achieve is to have the words read to the receiver during the call.

    Croozeus: does that work as intended on your N95? I tried mine on the E90, and the voice simply wasn't piped through the call all. Is there something that I can do to bind the audio's output to the telephone module's audio input?

    hi losheng definitely
    the code you have written is not going to work as you are calling the .say() function after that call has been established.
    moreover the .say() function will make you listen the text not the person you are calling.
    for making that receiver listen to the call you have to sent your data trough the carrier which is actually not possible in PyS60 as far as i know.
    and moreover i will be pleased to be proven wrong.

    Yes, It worked on my N95 ! I did the calling externally rather using the telephone module.
    The text is read over the call, I am not sure if the person on the otherside can hear it, but I heard it in the call and not through the speaker.

    Just tested on my E90 and got similar results.
