OK Art, just to give you some idea as to what I'm doing .......
This is an extract from a PDF printout of a checklist for a Beech Duke Turbine. The full checklist is attached as a PDF file, if anyone is interested.
The app used to process the checklists actually reads from an XML file, however this PDF has been produced so the user has a readily readable reference document to hand if wanted.
Each line of the checklists is read by the app as a virtual co-pilot (text in black) and the text in green is the acceptable response by the Pilot (Windows Speech Recognition)
The app reads each item and looks for a WAV file in the specified folder named as for the checklist item. So for the first item in the Before Landing
checklist the app looks for Pressurisation check zero differential.wav
file. If it can't find the file the app defaults to using the current TTS (for most people that's Microsoft Anna etc.) The options for me to produce these checklists with a reasonable voice quality is to either record my own voice to produce the individual WAV files, or as I am now able to, produce them using Zabaware TTS Reader with the AT&T voice.
The attached WAV file (zipped up) is for the the entire extract "Before Landing". I actually process this file using Audacity (software for recording and editing sounds) and separate each file for the relevant checklist item. I know it sound labor intensive, but I do have a macro driven system set up that makes it all reasonably efficient
So, as it stands I'm assembling sets of audio files to accompany each checklist I'm producing and making them available for downloading from my web site for the flight simming community.
My web site isn't as yet been made public since I want to assemble a reasonable number of checklists (for aircraft ranging from a Cessna 172 to Boeing 777) before I make a splash
