New S60 Text-to-Speech Language Packs Available

February 24, 2009 in Mobile Phone Software

Head on over to the Nokia S60 text-to-speech page to pick up some new language and speech packs for your S60 phone. Most Eseries and Nseries devices support the language packs, not to mention some other random S60 phones (5320, 6121/6124 classic, 6210, 6220, 6290, etc).

You’ll need both a language pack, and a speech pack. Also, keep in mind that this doesn’t add additional language features, just different voices to the TTS application. So if you install the Japanese pack on your North American S60 phone, you still won’t be able to see Japanese characters, because the character set isn’t supported in the firmware.

If you’ve never used the text-to-speech feature on your S60 phone, give it a try – it’s quite handy. You can quickly have your phone read your latest emails/text messages by holding the left softkey at the idle screen. Alternatively, when browsing text messages, you can choose Options -> Listen.

Is it at all possible for us to create our own language files?

I would really, really, really like my e51 to read my SMS messages to me by morse code as soon as they’re received.

Really really.
