• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.

I am trying to add .wav files to the voiceannounement folder in my CPS.

I created an MP3 file with a text to speech app then converted it to a .wav file and saved it into the CPS' voiceannouncement folder.

When I try to load the voiceannouncement folder contents i am unable to select the new files to load into the radio (XPR7550 and XPR7350e and XPR3500).

I created a sub-folder and loaded these .wav files into it. I get an error message stating "invalid voice file" when I try to load from the sub-folder".

Can I create a "personalized" set of wav files for our system and use the Manage Voice Announcement feature to program them into our radios.

Regards,

Chuck

Yes you can. Make the file 16-bit PCM, mono, 8000hz and less than 3 seconds and it will import.

If you haven't tripped across this guy before, it's probably worth it to bookmark his blog.

Voice Announcement Files - DJ0WH

As the previous poster mentioned, you have to get the wav file saved in the right format ( 16 bit mono) but I've also had good luck with longer file lengths. I think one of mine is almost 6 seconds.

If you haven't used it before - audacity is a nice program for setting up voice files, clipping, splicing, adjusting, etc.
