Clock for Windows PC or Phone
Clock for WINDOWS COMPUTER 2017.10.20  

Digital 12/24 hour Clock / Alarm for Desktop · Laptop · Tablet

I wanted table-top digital clock with BIG numbers and two alarms (first one to wake me up and second one to remind me to go to sleep) with ability to turn alarms off by tapping anywhere on the screen. Unfortunately, I did not find something I liked, so I decided to create my own.

JocysCom-Clock-Program.EXE - if you want to use clock as program.
JocysCom-Clock-ScreenSaver.SCR - if you want to use clock as screen saver.

Text to Speech Monitor

Jocys.com Text to Speech Monitor and WoW Addon

 

• Jocys.com Text to Speech Monitor 2.4.18 (2016-12-20) • Digitally Signed
• Jocys.com Text to Speech “World of Warcraft” Addon 2.2.92 (2017-09-27)

Reads quests and chat messages with text-to-speech voices.

How it works: When you open window with text (dialogue, quest, book, etc.) or receive chat message in game, WoW “Addon” creates and sends message to you between <message><part>text</part></message> tags. This message can include text, name, gender, effect, group, pitch, rate, volume, etc. and command value. Then, “Monitor”, which must be running in background, while gaming, picks-up this message from your local network traffic, converts it to SAPI XML and reads it with specific text-to-speech voice.

“Monitor” help: JocysCom.TextToSpeech.Monitor.rtf • Tested on Windows 8 and 10

You can create your own text-to-speech game addons for “Monitor”, if they support addons.

After Addon update 2.2.88 [■] (Stop text-to-speech) button can appear at the center of the screen. To move mini frame with [≡][■] buttons: Move mouse pointer over [■] button. [≡] (Options) button will appear. Click on [≡] (Options) button, to open “Options” window. Unlock mini frame by unchecking first check-box in “Options” window. You can move “Options” window out of the way, if it is on top of mini frame with [≡][■] buttons. Move mini frame, wherever you like. Lock it again, by checking the same check-box.

     

FREE text-to-speech voices can be installed with Microsoft language packs.
BETTER text-to-speech voices are by Ivona / distributor Harpo Software.

“WoW Addon” ( old 2014-08-06 version ) with Ivona voices

Security and concerns • Why it is not on Curse?

It is not on Curse, because of “Monitor”, which is external program. Blizzard has no control outside the game over “Monitor” and, reasonably, can't take responsibility for it, by allowing it on Curse. Therefore, we keep everything as transparent, as possible. This project is open source and anyone can check all code at any time. We digitally sign our software and put our real names on it, so everyone could know, who to blame, if something will go wrong. This “WoW Addon” and “Monitor” does not give you more power over NPCs or other players in game. It does not send data back to game or anywhere else. It only reads local network messages between <message> tags or text from your clipboard with installed text-to-speech voices, when you want it. It makes game more involving, fun and interesting (especially for those people, who played WoW from the first day, it was released… like us. It became slightly boring to read all quests after some time). Also, it makes game easier for people with dyslexia. We are grateful, that gods from Pantheon of Blizzard are merciful enough not to block “WoW Addon” and let people use it :). Please download this “WoW Addon” and “Monitor” only from trustworthy sources. Make sure that “Monitor” is always signed by verified publisher with signature, issued by trusted certificate authority.

Installation • Exit WoW before installing or updating addon.

1. Download JocysCom-TextToSpeech-WoW.zip file.

2. Open “File Explorer” (Win+E), locate downloaded file and open it.

3. Copy JocysCom-TextToSpeech-WoW folder ( folder is inside downloaded zip file ).

4. Paste JocysCom-TextToSpeech-WoW folder inside “AddOns” folder of WoW.

Usual directory: #:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\

5. Install additional text-to-speech voices, if needed.

Free text-to-speech voices can be installed (on Win 8.#) with Microsoft language packs.

1. Right-click the “Start Button” > Control Panel > Language.
2. Add additional languages like English (United States) or English (United Kingdom), etc.
3. Go to “Options” of each language and click on... [ Download and install language pack ].

When you will run JocysCom.TextToSpeech.Monitor.exe, additional text-to-speech voices should be visible now. Not all languages have text-to-speech voices. To switch between languages in Windows, you can use ( Win+Space ).

Windows 8.1 language packs and text-to-speech voices - Wikipedia:

• English (United States) - David (male), Zira (female).
• English (United Kingdom) - Heera (female), Hazel (female), Zira (female).
• Chinese Simplified - Hanhan, Huihui.
• Chinese Traditional - Tracy.
• French - Hortense.
• German - Hedda.
• Japanese Haruka.
• Korean - Heami.
• Italian - Elsa.
• Polish - Paulina.
• Portuguese - Maria.

• Spanish - Helena, Sabina.

Better are Ivona text-to-speech voices ($45 each). Test voices online (developer): Ivona.com
Download and test voices 30 days for free (distributor): Harposoftware.com/en/content/10-trial
Good Ivona voices are English-British “Amy” and “Brian”. Some other voices are not bad too. If you know free of charge text-to-speech voices as good, as voices by Ivona, please, write us or leave comment about that in comment section.

6. Run JocysCom.TextToSpeech.Monitor.exe ( file is inside pasted folder ).

Usual directory: #:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\JocysCom-WoW-TextToSpeech\

You can pin “Monitor” to Windows OS taskbar, if you plan to use it frequently. Administrator rights are required to run this program. Make sure that you are using digitally signed software. Digitally signed software ensures that users can verify origin of software and that no one has tampered with it. Any modification in code of software, after it is signed, invalidates digital signature.

7. User Account Control window must show “Verified Publisher: Jocys.com” or “Verified Publisher: Evaldas Jocys”.

Do not trust executables from “Publisher: Unknown”.

8. Click [ Yes ] button.

9. When “Monitor” will open, setup voices in [ Voices ] tab (example).

3 voices are enabled in this setup:
“IVONA 2 Brian” -- will be used as Male (100) and Neutral (100) voice.
“IVONA 2 Amy” -- will be used as Female (100) voice.
“Microsoft Hazel Desktop” -- will be used as Neutral (50) voice.

Number ( from 0 to 100 ) sets, how often voice should be used, relatively to other voices in the same category (Male, Female or Neutral). If you have IVONA male and female voices, you can disable “Microsoft (...) Desktop” voices ( as they are quite bad ).

Monitor can't play voices, if their trial period is expired. You can test, which ones are expired, by enabling one voice at a time and pressing [ Speak ] button in Monitor. Such voices must be disabled in [ Voices ] tab.

10. Run “World of Warcraft” game.

11. [■] (Stop text-to-speech) button will appear at the center of the screenIf you will move mouse pointer over [■] button, [≡] (Options) button will appear. If you will move mouse pointer over [≡] button, menu with various check-boxes will appear. Move mouse pointer over any check-box and title will show, what it enables/disables.

To move mini frame with [≡][■] buttons: Move mouse pointer over [■] button. [≡] (Options) button will appear. Click on [≡] (Options) button, to open “Options” window. Unlock mini frame by unchecking first check-box in “Options” window. You can move “Options” window out of the way, if it is on top of mini frame with [≡][■] buttons. Move mini frame, wherever you like. Lock it again, by checking the same check-box.

12. [■] (Stop) and [►] (Play) buttons will appear at the bottom of some windows too.

13. “Addon” gets genders of targeted (you are interacting with) NPCs. “Addon” also gets conversations-chat, but not genders of NPCs, who are walking and talking around you. Therefore, “Addon” automatically saves every NPC (name, gender and type), which you are targeting, in “Monitor“ (must be running in background). Also, if slot is available, “Addon“ will create “NPCSaveTTSMacro” and will update it during the game. You can use this macro to target at once up to 9 last chatting NPCs or any nearest friendly NPC (to save them in “Monitor“). Saved in “Monitor“ NPCs have genders (male and female voices) in their conversations. I didn't figure out yet, how to get NPCs genders directly from NPC chat event or some database (although, there is no problem with players). For example: If you see two female NPCs chatting, but they have male voices... just click on them (or use macro to target them) and they should get female voices from that moment. Enter /m in chat window to show macros:

Usual per-account settings directory:
#:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<AccountName>\SavedVariables\
JocysCom-TextToSpeech-WoW.lua


Addon settings are saved in usual per-character settings directory:
#:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<AccountName>\<RealmName>\
<CharacterName>\JocysCom-TextToSpeech-WoW.lua


You can delete these files to reset settings or clear saved NPCs (game must be closed).

“Stop text-to-speech” macro and hotkey setup in “World of Warcraft”

1. Game Menu > [ Macros ] > [ New ]
2. Enter macro name (for example: “Stop TTS”).
3. Choose an icon for macro.
4. Click [ Okay ] button.
5. Write in “Enter Macro Commands” field:

/run SendChatMessage("<message command=\"stop\" />", "WHISPER", "Common", UnitName("player"))

6. Click [ Save ] button.
7. Drag “Stop TTS” macro icon from “General Macros” tab on “Action Bar” button.
8. Click [ Exit ] button.

9. Game Menu > [ Key Bindings ] > [ Action Bar ]
10. Bind desired keyboard key to "Action Bar" button with “Stop TTS” macro.
After pressing this key on keyboard, text-to-speech will stop.

Desired improvements in “World of Warcraft” game

• Getting UnitSex of NPC from chat and quest log -- no need to select it to get gender.
• Getting UnitAge of NPC (%) -- (1-100) in order to apply “Child", “Adult” or “Senior” effects.
• Getting UnitRace of NPC -- Sound effects on NPCs are applied by UnitCreatureType now.
• Getting value if NPC has voice over for all text -- in order not to start TTS speech.
• NPC “talking” animation should loop, depending on length of the text.
