Upgrade scheduled for release Dec 31st 2015

Your very own personal spokesperson

Do you lack the effort to talk but need to speak up?
Have your transcripts spoken aloud for others to hear.
Or be goofy and type hilarious comments for friends to laugh at.

Get to voicin' in two steps:

  1. Type text
  2. Press play

Download and install Robot Voice from Google Play.
The following permissions will be requested by the app:

WAKE_LOCK Keeps the device awake during export
WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE For exporting to external storage

In your code, send a broadcast Intent from an Activity with the following settings (the extra must be accompanied with a String value):

  • action: quickytools.intent.action.speak
  • mimetype: vnd.android.cursor.item/text
  • extra: quickytools.speakup.intent.extra.transcript

An example function that will trigger Robot Voice to speak is shown below where transcript is the text to speak.

void robotTalk(String transcript) {
	Intent i = new Intent();
	i.putExtra("quickytools.speakup.intent.extra.transcript", transcript);

To stop robotic talk, pass the extra: quickytools.speakup.intent.extra.stop with an Integer value of 0 in the Intent above instead of the transcript extra.
