Problems in setting Voice Properties using Speech library in 5.0

Hi All,

 

I am experimenting Text-to-speech using Blackberry 5.0. The text to speech is working fine in all 5.0 simulators except 9550. I dont know why??

 

I am trying to set the female voice, age using SynthesizerProperties and Voice but its not working. Please have a look on my code and correct me if i wrong in setting up female voice.

 

public void tts(String description){
            try {
              
              Synthesizer  synth = (Synthesizer) EngineManager
                        .createEngine(SynthesizerMode.DEFAULT);

                SynthesizerProperties synthesizerProperties = synth
                        .getSynthesizerProperties();
                Voice voice = new Voice(null, null, Voice.GENDER_FEMALE,
                        Voice.AGE_TEENAGER, Voice.VARIANT_DONT_CARE);
               
                synthesizerProperties.setVoice(voice);

                synth.allocate();
                synth.speak(description, null);

 

                synth.deallocate();
            } catch (Exception e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }

        }

 

Is it possible to set up female voice, age according to jsapi 2.0??

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Sri

Re: Problems in setting Voice Properties using Speech library in 5.0

TTS is not available for 3rd party developers (RIM only)

Re: Problems in setting Voice Properties using Speech library in 5.0

Or if your making an assistive-service app (from what I remember).

 

As @AlexXF said (most) 3rd party devs don't have access to this library, so we can't really help you with it.

Re: Problems in setting Voice Properties using Speech library in 5.0

Thanks AlexXF and rcmaniac25,

 

I developed TTS app on 9700 simulator using above code.  Its working fine. Text to speech is working other simulators of 5.0 except 9550.

 

But my problem is, I set the female voice but TTS working on 9700 simulator with male voice irrespective of voice settings.

 

Does it work on 9700 device??
