Voice Command Announcement

Anyone noticed that the TP builtin VC has difficulty to announce incoming caller ID via TTS? The wav file was generated in the volatile area but majority of the time the announcement was not played (speaker, BT, or headset) and the ringtone was lower in between but no TTS.

Re: Voice Command Announcement

Yeah, we ripped this apart in another thread, but still no solution. It's forced me to make more effort to put custom ringtones on specific people, but it's not enough. I really hope we find a solution soon.

Re: Voice Command Announcement

This isn't a complete solution - but it's an improvement.

With this fix - the ring tone will play for a second and then be cut off by the call announcement. The announcement will be at a lower volume. The announcement will repeat - the ring tone will not be played again.

NOTE THAT YOU SHOULD ATTEMPT THIS FIX ONLY IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE IN UPDATING YOUR REGISTRY.

Change the following registry keys:

HKCU\ControlPanel\Sounds\TTSAnnounce\Category
change from VoiceCommand1 to Ring

HKCU\ControlPanel\Sounds\TTSAnnounce\Script
change from as5p to v0p (that's v-zero-p) - for vibrate & ring, or p (ring only)

The above fix seems to get the announcements reliably, and doesn't break the set vibrate/set ringer features in the TF3D interface.

Hopefully we can find a better solution - that will restore the full functionality of Voice Command incoming call announcements - and not need this hack.

Another option is to manually overwrite the ringtone file name:

HKCU\ControlPanel\Sounds\RingTone0\Sound
change to \Application Data\Volatile\TTSCallerID.wav

This fix replaces the ringtone with the call announcement - and at full volume.

BUT this solution has several problems, including breaking the set vibrate/set ringer feature in TF3D.

Re: Voice Command Announcement

not me. Why does my VC speak my texts mssgs without a problem, but can not announce a call? There has to be an easy fix for this.
