What directory can I get the siri voice files from?
They're hosted on Apple's servers, so you can't do that.
They're not hosted on the Apple Servers. The processing is hosted on Apple Servers, but Apple sends back what text to say to Siri and Siri says it.
This is right.
Siri is indeed TTS technology. The back end only sends text. The text-to-speech engine built into iOS5 reads the text sent back from the server for you. Sending the audio data back to you OTA would really beat on your data plan.
What were you looking to do, replace them with something else? Or list everyone she says? Neither are possible.
He's probably looking for that roving bug in them...yes, that's this guy.
Really? I find that hard to believe. It would be ridiculously inefficient when iOS has excellent text-to-speech built in.
I'm sure if he keeps looking one day he will find it, but by then it will already have been too late
When you use Siri your voice is sent in a really small, compressed audio file to the Apple servers, where it is processed. Siri's answer is a text file which is sent back to the iPhone, and the iPhone then converts to text into speech.
I'm kind of hoping....
I feel that iOS should use the same TTS engine as Mac OSX, as they're running pretty much the same operating system with different daemons, UI, kexts, and ARM vs x86. So I should be able to plop in Siri voice files and get the voice on mac.
If you have Lion, "Samantha" (in sys pref > speech) would be the one you're looking for.
What about the voice for Australian English?
The Australian English voice is named Karen. You may have to download it from Lion's speech pref pane. And iOS voices cannot be transferred to Mac OS X.
.......You can get Siri to say whatever you want............
It's in the Accessibility options.
Thanks, but that doesn't sound like Siri at all.
How is siri and accessibility related? Google doesn't tell me anything either.
(Also, having the voice files would be better)
The voice that is Siri is not a new voice. Her voice is Settings>General>Accessibility>Speak Selection
You can have the Siri voice say whatever you want. Just highlight and tap speak. I use it way more than I use Siri.
This totally sounds like Siri
Thanks, but that's not very useful since I have to do it manually. I wanted something like Mac OS's TTS that works when you put 'say something' in terminal.
This doesn't work in iOS emulator (on a mac obviously), right?
It works for me when you have to read whole paragraphs!
How are you going to direct it to read a specific point from here to there with your voice?
I don't know how emulators are set up.
I'm not trying to do it with my voice - I want to do it with code.. It's definitely possible, I've seen done before but the developer didn't respond to my emails and the IRC channel had 10 idlers who never speaks.
Well, you can get the file from 's FTP severs.
Why did you bring back a 1 1/72 year old thread?
