Adding Text-to-Speech in the Reformatter

You can add text to the modified screen that will be converted into speech and played back to the mobile device user. This can be text from the host screen or text added just for the modified screen. Multiple text-to-speech actions will be processed without a pause if they are adjacent. You can also use the screen reformatter to set text-to-speech settings.

To add text-to-speech from the screen reformatter:

1  Click Edit > Add Text-to-Speech Text.

-Or-

In the Initial Screen View, right-click and select Add Text-to-Speech from the context menu.

The Text-to-Speech Text dialog box appears.

2  Type your text in the Text to be spoken text box. This box can be left empty if you only want to change the text-to-speech settings.

3  Type the desired text-to-speech settings in the Persistent Text-to-Speech Settings to use and/or the Temporary Text-to-Speech Settings to use text boxes.

Each setting must start with tts_ and use the format setting=value. Multiple settings can be specified and should be separated by commas. The complete list of settings is available in the Terminal Emulation Scripting Reference Guide.

4  Click OK.

The Text-to-Speech Text dialog box closes and your text appears in the Supporting Actions section of the Descriptive View. It doesn't show up on the emulation screen.

5  If desired, right-click on the Modified Screen View and select Add Text. Add the text to the modified screen.

To use existing text for text-to-speech:

1  In the screen reformatter, click and drag the mouse over the text you want to copy.

When you release the left mouse button, a context menu appears.

2  Select Text-to-Speech Copy.

The Text-to-Speech Copy dialog box appears.

3  If you want to change the current settings, type the desired text-to-speech settings in the Persistent Text-to-Speech Settings to use and/or the Temporary Text-to-Speech Settings to use text boxes.

Each setting must start with tts_ and use the format setting=value. Multiple settings can be specified and should be separated by commas. The complete list of settings is available in the Terminal Emulation Scripting Reference Guide.
