Ok, I have the driver installed and working and according to the driver notes
all you need to to is field write the command say word and enter the word number in the field....but it does not work...also wonder how you would get it
to say multiple words in a sentence?

I am tying to do this using the event manager.

Thanks
Mark
its been a while, but you dont actually type the word in the field, you type in a number that represents the word in the M1.

So if you wanted the M1 to say "zone", using RP you need to find out what number is assigned to the word "zone" and then put that in.

Similary for a phrase, you construct it in the M1 and then tell M1 to say phrase vm101.

This is not 100% correct as I am going from memory, but hopefully it will get you going int he right direction.

Hi, Yes that's what I put in the field was the word number, and I still get no
speech from the elk...

What am I missing>?

Thanks

Have you verified that you can get the Elk to speak in RP with the SayText from one of the screens? I had a problem at first but it was due to the Elk speaker not being hooked up right.

I just tried it and I confess I don't understand what is going on. I tried several numbers with SayText and got silence. I tried several numbers with SayPhrase, for instance "3" and the Elk said "Zone 3". The same for the other numbers: The Elk said "Zone ?" where ? was what ever number I put in the parameter. Zone 178, Zone 21, etc.

My Elk firmware is version 4.4.12 The Elk RP SW version is 1.6.16 with M1G Control Module version 4.5.18
I am also unable to get it to work.
Devices::FieldWrite
P1=M1.SayPhrase
P2=245

where 245 is vm245 in the M1 under Automation - Voice.

This does work because I have had it working on my system

Mine still does not work...It does work with RP but not with cqc driver...

What is the P1= and the P2= When I put in P2=245 it rejects it so I just put
in the number 245 in the field for the phrase.

I am trying to use the event manager if that makes any difference.

Thanks

Ok, So how can I trouble shoot this problem myself to provide more info to the person that wrote the elk driver.

Thanks
Mark
SayPhrase Works for me...

Devices::FieldWrite(Security.SayPhrase, 245)

SayWord does not...

Devices::FieldWrite(Security.SayWord, 169)
Quote:What is the P1= and the P2= When I put in P2=245 it rejects it so I just put in the number 245 in the field for the phrase.

Those stand for parameter 1, parameter 2, etc... That's just how it's formatted out when you cut an action and past it into a text editor. You don't actually use those in the actual values.

It seems unlikely that the driver is having a problem if it's working for other folks, though maybe it's working for people and not for others for some reason. Anything is possible.
