How to create Voice for the DP/DM Moto

Use this website to create the announcement:- http://www2.research.att.com/~ttsweb/tts/demo.php
Right click on the download link it gives and simply "copy link address" don't copy the wording of the link as that's not the full URL (no need to download)

Next goto http://audio.online-convert.com/convert-to-wav and paste the URL of the wav file you just made...
Select Change bit resolution: to 8 bit and Change audio channels: to mono...

Download the wav file and use your Moto S/ware to load up into the radio...

Soon as I have more time I'll do a more complete instruction set, with pix!

Enjoy, hope the voices don't get on your nerves too much! HIHI

Thanks for the detail on creating the voices. Spent a couple of hours tonight making the voice announcements for the talk group channels.
Easy to make and convert to the Moto format for the DM4600.

Just to add a comment about the settings when converting the .wav file, for the Motorola it is 16 bit, 8000 and mono in the three settings boxes.
Fooled me at first because I used 8 bit and the CPS rejected the file.
All works well now. :roll:

This is a really useful guide - I used it several months ago - however the voice file creator link is now broken, any ideas for an updated link...?

Hi Bradley,

not sure of another site as I noticed it had changed but if it helps I uploaded my DM4600 code plug to codeplugcentral and added a zip file with all the channel and zone voices I created for my Motorola DM4600.

They work well for me in the car.
