Would anybody out there be interested in a device to add speech to their crestron system? I've been playing around with a speech synthesis IC that although it does sound robotic, it is intelligible. The idea is to connect it to a spare input on a PAD8 and through programming, use speech to tell the user such things as, what station they are about to listen to, what play list they are listening to, etc. When using a keypad, trying to get to the station you like or a particular artist on your IPOD can be difficult. If a voice over the speakers told you the info you needed, wouldn't it be less of a hassle? For myself, I want to use a 4 button keyfob to select sources, functions and volume, all with voice prompts. If this sounds interesting, let me know and I'll give more details.
