If you want Hal to read it then fine otherwise there's always the Free Text-To-Speech Reader located on the main Zabaware.com site.

im trying to read from a text file that i am creating useing the same plugin. the code moves so fast that the text file is being read before it is updated, i think a one second delay will allow the file to update .... i might be able to just run a random batchfile or two to get the desired delay but i would rather have a command similar to sleep........ this is the last road block for this plugin. im going to post it when im finished ..... its a mod of the origional hal com plugin but this one can send and receive data to a serial device(like an arduino)

i was hopeing someone knows the answer to this, i would like to delay hals script for about 1 second
i tried to use wscript.sleep 1000 but im getting all kinds of errors does anyone know how to put a sleep or a sleep like command in a script?
code

If comForm2 = True Then
        Set comxx = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
        comxx.Run ("""anyfile.vbs""")
       

WScript.Sleep(1000)
End If


i get an error of "object required:"wscript""

i tried to make an object and just got related errors.....
am lost

Yeah Lonnie...the trouble with all those Random things is ya just never know when they're gonna show up! Hahaha! (random)

Your experience serves as a good lesson to anyone else to double check your work before assuming it's good. Same goes for typing to Hal or Speaking to Hal.
If Hal accepts the errors, Hal's output in the future won't be any better. While Hal can "learn" a lot of things, Hal is not quite "self-correcting" yet.

as many people know i have done and am always updating  my own personal , extended talk plug in , i was using it after putting in probably about 80 or more random sentences then all of a sudden it started giving errors  which was strange as anytime i did add 10 at a time i checked it in hal to make sure it was working right and it was . the next time i turned hal on i started getting errors , but how could that be i checked it and it worked just fine .

Some may have caught on what is actually happening , but for anyone who hasn't i will explain the problem i have with errors mysteriously showing up.

what happened was that these errors were their all the time , first off my extended talk is now up to 2090 random sentences (this is based on the loneliness plug in ) .

 to explain further , since i have such a large body of questions , and they are picked randomly , what happened was for a while it was randomly picking sentences to say for a long time,and working  but then started giving errors , what was happening was that i had made some mistakes, spaces etc. a lot earlier on , but because it randomly picked sentences the bad sentences weren't showing up until they finally got picked randoming which of course led to the error .

I did go back on all the sentences over many days correcting any mistakes i have , and now have it working again .

so a word to anyone contemplating making a larger extended talk plug , be very careful in all the spaces , coma's etc.

I actually think that something like a randomly always talk program (with timer base, high medium and low settings) within hal would be nice , but having said that , it if made should also have a optional check or uncheck to give users the option of using or not using it.  :)
