I keep recieving this error 'Field barpitch was declared with the wrong wrong type'

Fixed: for some reason I was not paying attention and added progress bars instead of seekbars :sign0161:

Is the speech engine something that doesn't meet Android licensing requirements like Google Apps? I have a Motorola Tablet with stock Android (No Google Apps) that this doesn't work on. It doesn't have Voice Recognition either (No Mic on Keyboard). There is no market on the device either for a way to get them, so I guess I need to find an apk for them somewhere.

If Provided by Google it may not be in stock/pure just like their apps. Their apps have a license fee and some devices are Pure Android which doesn't include Google Apps or any other applications not licensed under the proper guidlines. While many associate Google with Android, they are just a member of the group. They provide their apps for a fee and are not part of Pure Android unfortunately. Are there any that meet those standards that could be installed without Google licenses?

Other languages

I noted that the example allows selection of other languages. However, it speaks text already in another language. Is it possible to call up an automated translator (e.g. to translate from, for example, to French) before the text is spoken?

Erel:

Are you saying that speech is included in the OS these days in the newer models?

I upgraded my phone to 2.2 a month ago but the default TTS engine is Pico TTS,
I guess I installed it for Endomondo but when I select in the app example french it still spits out english
while the pico shows 6 or 7 installed languages including french.

I still need dutch but searching the market for Pico or Pico TTS doesn't give any results anymore.

Other Languages Possible?

Hi - 2 questions:

1-How do I add another language to the TTS example like spanish or italian?

2-It seems that the pitch and rate settings only affect the english voice and not the other 2. What could explain this?

Thanks

Other Languages Possible? answer

I answered my own question #2:
I see that I needed to install the German and French google lang in settings and now the pitch/rate works. Strange that it kind of worked before the install.

As soon as I find the language codes exposed for the other langauges I can see this coming in handy for VR testing or traveling.
