Hi,

I'd like to create speech announcement that would tell me number of opened doors,windows, outside temp when I leave house.

I have all those info in devices states, but now I wonder if I can put them into speech announcement via DCE command that could be used in scenario created over web-admin ?

The idea is to have some data containers in speech text, that will be replaced by actual values.

I guess this is not possible at the moment, but I wonder what would be proper way to implement this? Having some kind of central data storage where one could change/read data is probably the way to go...

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

you could create an "Announcement" GSD device that ties it all together

you're right.... But still this will be custom solution. Although I think that entire Text To Speech plugin could be replaced by some more smart device that will also handle a queue of speech announcements and have possibility of other TTS engines....

I guess we need to prepare something in the future.... Maybe some mysql table with global data and General Info Plugin that will serve/change that info...

I'm also curious if something is already done or thought in this direction...
