could someon make a text to speach saying "red light camera" ahead by an austrailian girl. thanks
go to the att site, can't remember the exact address, cause I am on wife's computer. But you can make it say whatever you want
I only have means to create US and UK female voices through the ATT site. I suspect this is the same site Asianfire talks about. Anyhow, the address is http://www.research.att.com/~ttsweb/tts/demo.php
I suppose you aren't talking about physically kicking a man out of an Outback pub, possibly with a broken rib, which loosely translates to North American English as a "No."
I just want a nice pleasant d=female voice sayin red light camera ahead
That one is already in the alert library.
Or does POILoader recognize .wav files, too?
It used to - but Garmin broke it
See if you have "Windows Audio Converter." If you do, the following method should work.
From Windows Explorer, right click on the .wav file, then click on "Convert audio format" to open the audio converter. For whatever reason, it wouldn't let me convert the .wav file I created through the AT&T website directly to .mp3, so I first convert it to "Windows Media Audio lossless." Then convert the .wma file to mp3 file.
It's sort of a workaround, but it has worked for me. I'm sure others have more streamlined solutions.
Have you tried fooling it? Verizon (at least for a while, been a while since I've uploaded anything) would only let you upload MID files to your phone for ringers, because they wanted to be able to sell you the MP3 ringers. It was quickly discovered that one could just change the extention of an MP3 file to MID and it would pass through the Verizon program fine, and the phone was smart enough to recognize what kind of file it actually was and would play it fine.
Obviously not the same circumstances with Garmin, but who knows, maybe the unit would recognize it. Would save some conversion time, but probably eat up some more space.
the easiest way to convert is open windows recorder and open wav file you want to convert and save as mp3 works great
I was unable to find a drop down selection in the Save As (.mp3) after opening a .wav in Windows Recorder as suggested. The Change button didn't seem to have the .mp3 format as an option either. Would you kindly explain how you did this and what version of Windows you are using? I'm running XP Home, and also have access to Vista. Thank you.
Try right-clicking on the file in the folder and see what you get. Whatever program I have associated with wav files (I think it's just the current version on Windoze Media Player) puts a Convert option in that menu so I can do it directly in the file folder.
Oops, I see Spider already mentioned that above...I'm slow today...
You might also try the Wav to MP3 converter at
It's free and you can do mass conversions
Cool, thanks much for the input and the link. I found I have an old Roxio program that did some of what I wanted. I'm going to check out the converter you linked to and the right click on the file.
Hi, I would use this website and create your own file
How Do We Get From .Wav To .Mp3?
Yes, in spite of what Garmin states, the On the Road Garmin GPS devices can use wav files in all its devices (and can use mp3 files, but only with the older nuvi models).
Check the various FAQs here for how to do so. If using a Mac, POILoader will incorporate a wav audio alert into an alert for a custom POI. If using a PC, you need to add the sox.exe program to your PC in the proper folder and the sox.exe version to use must be 14.0.1 as newer ones don't work. But with a PC and sox.exe, you can incorporate wav audio alerts into your custom POIs using POILoader.
In case you ever upgrade to a newer nuvi or any of the Drive Garmin devices, you'll be happy if you are already using wav files since all the mp3 files will not work.
Sorry, I didn't realize I was responding to a post from 2007!
