  AUDIO APPS

My first Linux app - "T2S Power" - released July 25.2017: last update September 12, 2017

This software was programmed using "Gambas3  v3.10.0" .


This is a text to speech application that can be used to:

  • have you ever noticed how something that you wrote (i.e. a presentation, etc..) sometimes doesn't come out right when it is spoken? Use this app to make sure that doesn't happen.
  • use to convert any text (i.e. a web page) to speech or convert to WAV audio so you can take it on the go to review later.
  • use it to be a BIG help for learning a second language.
  • use to relieve eye stress - have it spoken instead of having to read it.
  • use to create audio content to publish on the iNet - share your work.
  • hey - just use it for the heck/ fun of it!

DOWNLOAD THE SETUP (deb) FILE HERE....

Full source code upon request - mb@code-it.com

Install and compatibility info:

d8fc11a6cc2b770304f2bfd10709f4a0 = the MD5 hash for t2s-power.deb

If you want to check to verify that the setup file you have downloaded has not been tampered with: after downloading the file- type "md5sum thefilename.deb"  ("thefilename.deb" needs to be the complete path and name of the file) in the Linux Terminal. If it returns the same value as I have given you then you're good to go - otherwise please request assistance from mb@code-it.com

VERY IMPORTANT: before installing this app you will need to install Gambas Runtime  v10 files - most systems will not have these very new files installed yet. 

Do so via the terminal commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gambas-team/gambas3
sudo apt-get update 

Also you'll need to have espeak installed (most systems will by default) - if not use this command in the terminal:

You can install espeak using `apt-get  install espeak'

This setup is compatible to install on Linux Mint systems - it is a "deb" file.

You should be able to download it then merely double click on the file to activate the installation (just like Windows exe setup files).

This setup will/ should detect if there are any supporting files that need to be installed and will do so if allowed by you. More then likely there will be several small supporting files you'll need. Also - you will need to have "espeak" installed on your system - the majority of distros have installed by default.

Will put the startup icon within your app menu.

NOTE: I would GREATLY APPRECIATE any and all feedback - this is the only way I'll ever know if the app is useful or needs revisions to be so. 

 

 

Talkster  v1.7.8 - released September 12, 2017

This software was programmed using "Gambas3  v3.10.0" .

I guess you could call this a "widget" type application. The GUI is just a large icon that (when it has the focus) performs a few different tasks via your hot-key input. Basically, it's a very simple "clipboard audio reader": it will speak any text that is copied into the clipboard via text 2 speech technology.

Hotkeys are:

  • Space bar to speak the clipboard text content
  • F7 to stop speaking
  • F1 to display the About screen
  • the arrow keys to move the GUI / icon around the monitor screen
  • ESC to quit

Oh yeah.. I also offer a customized programming service. For a small one time fee I will customize the software to your liking.

Examples of just some of the things that can be done are:

  •  add language choices and speaking options (e.g. the speed, the pitch, and many other functions
  • change the GUI / icon image to mostly whatever you want
  • option to have the text converted to a WAV or MP3 audio file
  • option to save the clipboard content to a txt file
  • we designed it to be very simple but that may not be your thing - we can soup it up with most anything else that you may desire -:)

 iNet Radio v2.0.1 -  released  November 02, 2017

This software was programmed using "Gambas3  v3.10.0"

A simple iNet radio stream player - developed under the KISS method  (kind of; -) it just works! Options of lots of genres and channels: take your pick between bible study, talk radio, the latest hits or my favorite - the 50's and 60's channel.

Option to add LOTS of channels easily (or edit your play-list) - we show you how.

No old fashion square screen - it's exactly like the above image (in tech terms - "masked" ).

A great champion while you're do'n all that computer work, gaming or surfing.

Nickelodean - released November 26, 2017

This software was programmed using "Gambas3  v3.10.0" .

OH NO - not another audio player you might be thinking. Why did they waste  time on developing this? Well.. Mister (or Missy as  the case may be) , let me tell you why real fast,  in case you're interested.

The other day I was doing some puter work and thought it might be nice to listen to some oldie music. I fired up one of those world famous audio players and proceeded  to set it up with some tunes. It didn't take me long to realize that my fancy audio player was depending a LOT on the MP3 files being ID tagged - in fact it would hardly function without them (ID tags embedded). And what about the several versions of MP3 tags? Some players will read all, some just some and others just get confused.  On my Linux system I have never taken the time to do this.  I've always thought that "playlists" were the way to go - that way I can easily categorize tunes to suit a mood or presumed need . So there you have it - you not only have to ID tag your music (that came from questionable sources) but also create a series of "playlists".

I don't consider "all problems solved" by using this software BUT IMHO it makes things a little easier and it's just plain fun to deal with - once you get use to an "out of the box" solution;-)

GUI is just like what you see below - no ole fashion plain square screens.

Features you may (or may not) like:

  • EVERY function is activated via a "hot/ function" key - no clicks allowed here.
  • Completely depends on a custom created "playlist" that requires being setup just like the example above  (i.e. Tittle, Artist, Full name and path,) one entry per line with a "," xtween the values as well at the end of the line.
    • Use any plain text / ASCII editor to craft these playlists.
    • The player uses these custom playlists to display the Tittle and Artist name while it is playing the tune - kind of like MP3 ID tags but NOT.
