ANNOUNCER

This application speaks the track name, artist and album title when playing music using the default media players, or others that support scrobbling.

It's useful if you have a large music collection and cannot see the screen to check the names, e.g whilst exercising.

It uses the native Text-to-Speech capabilities of the device to speak. If you don't like the way it speaks, or pronounces words, then download an alternative TTS provider for your device. Try the SVOX ones, they may be better!

TOASTER

Tune Announcer also toasts the song details whilst speaking. Shows the album cover, track name, artist and album name.

The details of the tune pop up are large enough to be comfortably and safely read whilst driving.

Toasts can be enabled and disabled independently of the Announcements.

TASKER Support

Tasker can be used to create Action Intent Tasks that enable or disable Tune Pop and Announcements. See this blog for more details : http://softwyer.wordpress.com/2011/02/28/tasker-support-for-tune-announcer-pro/

Pro version has:

- toggle widget
- notification icon
- configure the application to ignore certain characters and symbols when speaking.
- option to ignore all text in brackets () & []
- well done toast
- speak in English option (British)
- speak album name
- free format speech mode allows you to choose what parts to say and where to place them.
- tasker support.
- speak at the end of the track, rather than the beginning.
- Google's network sourced speech synthesis

SPEAK AT END OF TRACK

This relies on the track containing a reasonable estimate of the time as well as it being scrobbled correctly. Scrobble Droid, Google Music, Double Twist and the Built in Android/HTC players all seem to be OK for scrobbling track length.

If you fast forward through a track, or pause it, then there will be no speech at the end. Android does not scrobble this information.

Toasts always appear at the start of the track, regardless of 'speak at end' setting.

SPEECH VOLUME

On some devices the speech volume can be quiet, especially when played through headphones or over bluetooth. Unfortunately this is a limitation of the device and Android OS. We can't fix these problems so please try the free version before buying the paid version.

PRE-REQUISITES

For Tune Announcer to work, your music player MUST support SCROBBLING. Tune Announcer supports a variety of common scrobble formats and will work with most players that implement scrobbling. Some players require that you enable scrobbling in their settings. Furthermore, some players won't scrobble unless you install the LastFM scrobble client. Usually, it is enough just to install it, you don't always need to register with LastFM to scrobble.

Turn on Tune Announcer's debug mode and play music. If you don't get any 'toast' messages with debug scrobble information, then your music player is not scrobbling. Either change your music player's settings, or change your music player. Tune Announcer is NOT psychic, it requires the player to scrobble.

To speak, your device must have an Text-to-Speech service built in. All modern Android OS's will have this, though you may need to enable or download the speech libraries. Check your Android OS Settings under Language and Input.

As always, please email us with any issues so that we can fix them! Feature requests are always welcome.

    Great app for when you can't take your eyes off of something, or you want an easy and quick way to see what song just started playing. Very friendly and willing developer!

    I really like this app. Very useful while you are hearing music while you are doing something else and cannot afford to constantly switching on your device to check the name of the track. It will instantly tell you the details. With network speech synthes

    This app is amazing. Finally I no longer have to turn on my display to check the name of the song. Great for biking. I especially like how it reads the song title just by pressing pause/play on my headphones

    Just updated from1.2 to 1.8.1 and it has stopped working ! The test works but nothing else. Not even the one they are pushing works. Come on lads and fix it, please. It's a great piece of software.

    I love this feature on the iPod Nano, but I need to press a button to make it work on the Nano. This app just works and the voice is clear. I have many classical pieces and can't recognize all of them at first listen. I fee sorry for commenter's who hav
