Thumbs up
I am very sorry boys and girls ,
I apalogize to you , i haven't been much activ on the forums and my project , i shall pick it up again

But still i need an voice_instruction.zip from another country , like america or the UK for example , so i can listen to the voices , wich allows me to make the correct adjustments , otherwise it very well may be that i put the : go left command where you should hear : Go right ! We certainly do not want that , do we ?

UK , just found ou : if i change the language of my android device , and restart Google Maps Navigation , i'll get the file aswell , so i started with the UK version and Darth Vader since i was requested the most

Hey. Is it possible for you to port over the Emma (UK) voice from Sygic? That's the nicest voice imo.

if I am not mistaken, the files which contain the voices in sygic are .so and .bin files, those.are the same as the tts apps . until now I am unable to open those files yet to extract the separate .ogg? files so I canĀ“t port them yet ....

but if someone else could tell me how to extract those files , I am more then happy to port them for you .



the Darth Vader files are almost finished, tomorrow you'll find it here .

Any StarWars Fans out there ?
Hey boys and girls ,

I am olmost finished with the DarthVader voice for the UK Navigation . But i am desperately searching for some words/sentences . Because i miss some sentences , i missed a lot more due to the different choise of words of TT , but i was able to cut,copy and past some words together and fabricate new sentences i need . But an few remaind , these are the sentences i need :
in_1_and_a_half_miles.ogg
in_1_mile.ogg
in_2_miles.ogg
in_3_miles.ogg
in_1000_feet.ogg
in_a_half_mile.ogg
in_a_quarter_mile.ogg
in_three_quarters_of_a_mile.ogg

For the metric system i also need :
in_1_and_a_half_kilometers.ogg
in_1_kilometer.ogg
in_2_kilometers.ogg
in_3_kilometers.ogg

So my question is to the fans , do you know any sentence or words in the film that allows me to make these sentences . I tried with just loose letters but that didn't work out beautiful .

Thanks

P.S.
Here you go :

The result i came up with until now ! Please keep an few things in mind :
1) This is for the moment , ONLY for the UK and US version .
2) This is work in progress , so that means unfinished .But useable !
3) With some dutch voices we encounterd som difficulties with some users that the voice did not work immidiately , how come ??? i honnestley do not know , i am not an specialist , only an hobbyist
4) For this to get to work you may by have to delete cache etc. wich means lose of data wich include stored adresses etc.

oke...
This .zip is to be placed in the folder /storage/sdcard/Android/data/com.google.android.apps.maps/testdata/voice/en_GB.ia3ef9dbb . After you replaced the originial file with the file i made , you navigate to the folder /storage/sdcard/Android/data/com.google.android.apps.maps/testdata/cannedtts/en_GB.i.c862f575 and erase al the .ogg files there ,
After this when you start up the navigation and start navigating , you should hear Darth Vader

Have fun !
And keep your Jedi Force on the road , if some accidents happens to you or someone else or some Jedi attacks you it is not my fault !
Ghehehe

For UK (metric system) : Download = to be placed in : storage/sdcard/Android/data/com.google.android.apps.maps/testdata/voice/en_GB.f4cac31d
For UK (imperial system) : Download = To be placed in : storage/sdcard/Android/data/com.google.android.apps.maps/testdata/voice/en_GB.i.a3ef9dbb
For US (metric system) : Download = to be placed in : storage/sdcard/Android/data/com.google.android.apps.maps/testdata/voice/en_US.f4cac31d
For US (imperial system) : Download = to be placed in : storage/sdcard/Android/data/com.google.android.apps.maps/testdata/voice/en_US.a3ef9dbb

This works but I recommend reducing the march music it plays every time you change destination.


If you can't get it to work all you do is find the directory under /test data/en_US.whatever and in there is the .zip it extracts the .high as needed. So delete everything but the zip and rename the original and replace with this one.

Hey sorry to hear you just have an male voice .
Just like i said before , i do not know how it comes the sometimes the old/original voices keep ketting trough .

An possible solution for rooted roms is :
navigate to the folder
\mnt\sdcard\Android\data\com.google.Android.apps.m aps\testdata\voice\nl_NL.28d598fc or en_Us or en_UK or whaterver trough an app like rootexlorer and delete al the .ogg files you find do this in every folder you see in
\mnt\sdcard\Android\data\com.google.Android.apps.m aps\testdata\voice\ .
For me that did the trick pretty much each time . Due to some kind of mystery , rootexplorer shows the .ogg files in that folder and any other program on my windows or the stock file explorer app does not see those .ogg files .

an possible solution for the stock roms :
this may delete every stored adresses etc. !
Go to : Settings -aplicationsmanager ( something like that ) -all-maps , Stop the app , delete the data and clear the buffer . press the home button , and then start the navigation , but do not enter any adres or something like that , this so the navigation app can create the folder , then press home again and shut down the navigatin , then replace the voice_instructions.zip for the one i made and then it should work .
But like i said before , we encounterd some problems , problems that with one guy it works flawlessly and the other guy it did not work immidiatley . Even though the procedure was the same :S .

I am sorry i can not give you an waterproof how to , but that is the way the cookie crumbles , sometimes you'll get big chunks , some times small ones .

Just try the ways i discribed and play a little with that , i know for sure this shaal work .

And thanks for the tip of the intro , i tought it was kinda cool , but tommorow if i can find the time ( having an life ) i shall make one without the intro song .

Greets.

P.S.
I hope you all know that this isn.t the original Darth Vader voice , but the voice of TT Darth Vader .
