5-day forecast talk

Hi what I think will be sweet Brian is that maybe possible to add the 5-day weather talk. Just like on the weather channel! :slight_smile: WHat do you think ? I think it would be neat.

there is already this tag available , which you can use for customised weather talking
i.e use this tag, for a customised talking file:
%5dayforecastday1%…Forecast from the 5 day forecast graphic image from a downloaded NOAA zone forecast file (which must be first selected),repeat up to day 8

there is already this tag available , which you can use for customised weather talking i.e use this tag, for a customised talking file: %5dayforecastday1%..........Forecast from the 5 day forecast graphic image from a downloaded NOAA zone forecast file (which must be first selected),,,,repeat up to day 8

Haaaaaa, im stumped. Where does this %5dayforecastday1% tag go to ?

create a file called customtalking.txt
in the folder webfiles
and place that tag in there
and turn on the custom talk in the speech setup

Sorry cant get it to work. Can someone print the speech screen and help me with the settings

email me your customtalking.txt file you have created

i have your file chad

you have it called
customtalking.txt.txt

i.e, untick hide known file extensions in the tools, folder options, for that directory
oe, with notepad, dont inlude the .txt in the filename if that it ticked (to hide known file extensions) as otherwise notepad adds the .txt on to the end.
if you dont have that ticked, then you do no need to add the .txt to the filename
so, untick that setting and rename the file, and take out the extra .txt
or leave it ticked, and save the file in notepad with out the .txt in the filename

Ok, I renamed it and I took out the “.txt.”

I dont see weather talk anywhere on the page though.

i dont understand you last Q, please explain

under customtalking.txt I have this

%5dayforecastday1%
%5dayforecastday2%
%5dayforecastday3%
%5dayforecastday4%
%5dayforecastday5%
%5dayforecastday6%
%5dayforecastday7%
%5dayforecastday8%

Is that part correct ?

Next, under weathertalk setup what needs turned on and what does not ?

turn on the custom talk switch, to have wd talk the forecast
but if you want the .wav file uploaded to your web page (or the .mp3 file)
with these tags used, you need to create a customtalkfile.txt file and turn on the customtalk file switch

Ok heres what I have

talkfile off
file off
custom speech on
custonfile off
uploads on
custom speech talk files on ( every 30min )

Select file location is C:\wdisplay
talking.wav

Correct ?

And if thats correct I need to create another file under webfiles called_____

if you want a .wav file or .mp3 file on your web page, then you need:
the talk file switch on (of course), you need the custom file switch on (of course)
and the customtalkingfile.txt file in the webfiles folder with those tags in it

ok i created the file and placed the tages
%5dayforecastday1%
%5dayforecastday2%
%5dayforecastday3%
%5dayforecastday4%
%5dayforecastday5%
%5dayforecastday6%
%5dayforecastday7%
%5dayforecastday8%

I dont see it uploading onto my webpage.
I will now print screen and email the page.

email me the file customtalkingfile.txt
and your wdisplay.ini file from c:\windows or c:\winnt
and export your wdisplayftp.ini file from the registry and email me that
and make sure you click on save settings

here is the correct settings (as you still did not have it correct, after you emailed me the settings)
Note: those 5 day forecast tags only work after the 5 day forecast image has been created at least for the first time (so click on the main screen icon first to activate it)

Hmm I have the same settings you told me to do. Still not working for some reason. Well time for bed here its 12:30am. We can look at it more tomorrow and hopefully have at it.

do you have the same settings as I have in the screen shot?
also, it wont work after or before the hours you have set
i am sure you will get it working, it did for me with the settings in the screen shot

Yep, same settings you have shown.
