Default Voice Alerts - Your Android speaks

Hi Androidforums community,

I want to introduce you my new Android app.

WHAT IS IT
VoiceAlerts is an application for the android mobile platform, its goal is to alert the user with speech messages when the following events occur:

Incoming/Missed Calls: Alerts the user when receives a call, speaking the name of the contact. Configure repeat mode for missed calls alert.

Time changes: it can be configured to “speak” the current time in 15,30 and 60 minutes intervals. For instance: “it is 20 hours 15 minutes”

Sms received: A voice alert informs the user that a new sms is received, it can be configured to read the content as well. And to translate the most common sms abbreviations while reading the content for instance: c u l8r -> see you later.

Battery alerts: The user can specify a battery level (for instance 5%), below that level the app alerts the user with a voice message about the current battery status. Also, when the battery is completely loaded.

Memory alerts: A voice alert informs the user when the memory level is too low. When the battery has been completely loaded…

Message on Boot: You android welcomes you with a customized message.

Application Installed/uninstalled: It will be informed when an application package is being installed or removed.

Network availability: Your android informs you when the connection to the network is interrumpted ( in an elevator or tunnel) and re-established.

Wifi connections: Informs you when your phone connects to a wifi network.
Support for different languages (Spanish, English, German, Italian and French).

Added Widget to Activate/Deactivate the App easily and quick.

Lots of new features. (Headset activation, Notifications)

I can't find it either, but I dont think it will work on 1.5 anyways from the sound of it. 1.6 adds the tts functionality but hopefully someone can prove me wrong...it looks like a very convenient app.

yes, sorry guys but only 1.6 or newer OS versions can run this app. So if you have 1.5 , you would not find it...

Alejandro, I noticed your app in the Market last week, and promptly grabbed it. Proves to be extremely helpful when driving, but also at other times when I'm alone in my home office working on a project. Really convenient not to have to stop and pick up the phone to see what a sound alert is telling me. It's quickly become one of my most valued apps. Thanks for making it available!

This sounds like a great App - I see that there is now an update for 1.5 (I have an Eris) From your site I scanned the barcode to download and it says not found in the marketplace...maybe the search was for a different version and I just thought it was an update? Would love to try this out!

thanks~

Hi,

Two questions:

a) Does it run in the background, and give the alerts while other programs are running?
AND
b) Can it say the DAY and date, perhaps every five minutes?

I got a parking ticket last week because I returned from a vacation and forgot the day was Tuesday instead of Monday. Here in NYC with alternate side parking on different days, I would LOVE it if an app were running in the background telling me "Today is Tuesday" as I'm driving around looking for parking.

Perhaps it could even be linked somehow to GPS, so it only starts alerting you as you get within, say, a half-mile of your destination.

Being registered as blind I love this app BUT I have just installed the new version on my replacement HTC Sensation and the GMAIL & SMS alerts won't work.
I can cope without gmail alerts but not SMS.

Not sure what version was installed on my old HTC Sensation but it worked fine
