Hi there,

Would just like to know how you're getting on with this?

I'd also like to report a bug if possible. It seems that if the frequency of ground is the same as tower, when you get to the runway, it commands "contact tower at "." Then nothing else. Is it possible to right this at all?

Hi all,
I apologize for the delay, I have been "unplugged" for a while.
I've just committed version 2.2.4. Please update your local copy.

Main changes are:
    * Weather data: wind and pressure are now according "actual weather" instead of metar ones. (suggested by clm76).
    * ILS runways: flying heavy planes, you can request a ILS rwy by pressing "Ctrl-<" (instead of "<") when contacting APP or TWR. (suggested by dervau).
    * Approach Clearance: APP will give you a vector to reach final leg (10nm from touchdown) and an altitude for a standard glideslope (about 2.5 deg).

About the TTS voices, their parameters stays nailed once you start the session. Thus, you can modify the voices only via the preferences.xml file.
Try this (p.ex.):
Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0"?>
  <!-- General simulation preferences -->
. . . . .
        <voice n="0">
          <text type="string"/>
          <volume type="double">1.0</volume>
          <pitch type="double">20.0</pitch>
          <speed type="double">1.0</speed>
          <preamble type="string">(voice_us2_mbrola)</preamble>
          <festival type="bool">false</festival>
          <htsvoice type="string">cstr_uk_female-1.0.htsvoice</htsvoice>
. . . . .

Thanks all of you for your contributions.

Hello there!
I downloaded the latest release of SpokenATC and I like it very much. Great job indeed!
I however found two typos in the phraseology.xml file and they are both related to "after landing" strings (exitrwy and exrwygnd): Welcome and platform are spelled wrong: wellcome and plattform. I did not notice any replacement string and this is how I see them on FlightGear screen.
I also found a bug and I do not know whether I need to configure something in particular. When I land the voice welcomes me and then it repeats the taxi messages forever (Taxi to holding point...) and keeps on repeating this message over and over in an endless loop.

Besides than this, this is a truly great addon!

In case someone is interested in this (including the author of this nice addon) I fixed the bugs I reported in my previous message.
I have also noticed that the "holding position" is not always properly detected. I will also investigate on this.
Meanwhile, I have added weather information to the welcome message of ATC.
