iSpeak to Max, or other text reader question

December 2, 2008 | 4:43 pm

Hi Everybody,

I am working on a project in which I’d like to be able to handwrite text on a Wacom tablet, have that handwritten text transfered to type and read through iSpeak or another text reader. I’d then like to send the iSpeak or other text reader audio into MSP to process it.

Ideally, I’d like this to happen on the fly: I write hello on my tablet, it is automatically transfered to text and the processed text reader voice comes out of MSP. I’d like write and only hear the processed MSP voice come out the other side.

However, since iSpeak is a separate application, I have to write it in that program, and then press play for iSpeak to say the words, and then have MSP listen for that audio and process it.

–>Is there a Max 5 application for text reading that can help me do this process on the fly (without having to press go on iSpeak)?

I am able to get the Wacom tablet to read text into a jit.lcd object, but I don’t know what to do with it from there.

–>Also, please let me know if there is any other way you might suggest getting achieving my goal: handwritten text "hello" in, processed MSP audio voice "hello" out.

I know it’s a tall order, but any suggestions would be very helpful.

Thanks!!!
J
