Version 1.0 Released

This plugin provides an interface to the Microsoft Speech Synthesizer. The selection of voices is trough the windows control panel (Control Panel -> Ease of Access -> Speech Recognition -> Text to Speech)


/speaker speak Heal me -> Say "Heal me" using the default voice, wait for completion
/speaker speaka Invis faded -> Queue saying "Invis faded", return immediately
/speaker mute -> Toggle the voice on/off
/speaker mute 1/0 -> Set the voice output on/off
/speaker echo -> Toggle the echoing of the voice into the mq2 chat window
/speaker echo 1/0 -> Set echoing on/off
/speaker panel -> Open the Window speech recognition control panel

The settings are stored in MQ2Speaker.ini and default to mute=0, echo=0.


${Speaker.Muted} Is the voice muted
${Speaker.Echoing} Is the voice echoed
${Speaker.Done} Have all speak requests been spoken
${Speaker.Exists} Is the voice successfully initialized


The state of the voice (for example, rate, pitch, and volume), can be modified using SAPI XML tags that are embedded into the spoken text. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms717077(v=vs.85).aspx
The standard selection of voices is rather limited, but more can be found here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=27224

Possible further extensions

/speaker nameds 1/0 -> Announce new named spawns
/speaker spawnmasteronly 1/0 -> Like above, but only when on spawnmaster list
