    V oice NonTTSVoiceEditor v.1.40

    NonTTSVoiceEditor v.1.40


    Split and Merge Garmin VPM voice file (non-TTS voice file only)

    53425992
    53425994
    53425990

    Main Features
    •Split a Garmin VPM file into a serie of WAV files
    •Split a TomTom CHK file into a serie of OGG files (Vorbis audio files)
    •Preview and play WAV voice samples and phrases
    •Merge them back into a VPM file

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Model Compatibility

    Should be compatible with all Garmin non-TTS voice file, except DrNightmare & Elfred which are encrypted.





    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    How-To
    1- Copy a non-TTS VPM voice file from your GPS to your computer
    2- Start NonTTSVoiceEditor wizard and follow the directives
    3- Select Extract to split the VPM into WAV files
    4- Use an external program like Audacity to record/edit the WAV files
    5- Select Play to preview the WAV voice samples and phrases
    6- Select Merge to join the WAV files into a VPM file
    7- Copy the newly modified non-TTS VPM voice file back to your GPS

    The program will merge the audio file you have. Make sure they are in the same format as the original WAV files. All files should be mono (rather than stereo). They could be 16-bit PCM audio or 4-bit ADPCM audio at 22 kHz. I provide no conversion for now, but this may be coming later.



    v1.40

    •Added ability to split TomTom .chk voice files into Vorbis OGG voice sample. Vorbis OGG can be played and converted by many programs as long as you have the Vorbis driver installed. Just use the split menu and select a .chk file instead of a VPM file. You can't do anything else for now

    Just a heads up: A newer version of Non-TTS Voice Editor will be coming soon. It will be able to decrypt the encrypted TTS voices like DrNightmare, Elfred, Dora, ... made with Voice Studio or Voice Creator. Stay tuned for that. It is going to be fun...

    Update:

    I am 80% done at re-generating the original vxml file using the data in the encrypted voice. When done, you will be able to take the audio samples and the .vxml file and re-generate the encrypted VPM. Yes, this means you can alter the voice files and/or the phrases structure and create a new file using Voice Studio or Voice Creator.

    One thing is bugging me a lot: Should I let you decrypt the locked files or not? If I let you do this, I may have Garmin and the voice producers on my back. Locked files are files that can only be played on a single GPS. If you decrypt a locked file and recompile it, it will not be locked anymore and it will be playable on any GPS. I know this is cool for you, but not that much for the copyrights holders... One alternative is for me to make the Voice Creator equivalent and let my program make the recompile. This way, I would be clever enough to preserve the locked bit. You can still alter the voice, but not unclock it. This would be a great workaround, but I would need to work a lot to emulate Voice Creator. Hum! Maybe a next phase...

    Opinions are welcomed!

    IMHO Do what's better for you, users will do what's better for them.

    @catymag: my main concern is the legal issues. Probably just a personal moral code.

    @kunix: that's a good one!

    I am talking with two voice creator companies. I am not sure they would appreciate I make a tool to unlock their voices... Still, there are a few companies that sell password recovery tools and other unlocking tools. Mine is not that much different. Someone may have "lost" his original voice files and may need to recreate them... Mmm. Not convincing, right?

    I still have a few days before releasing anything. Hopefully, I will find the right gimmick...

    I'm exactly in this situation... I made my own voices for my GPS and used Garmin's VoiceStudio and I lost my source files My only remaining trace of this recording is my vpm file that I can't now use on my new GPS. Is your project of add decrypting feature is dead (I guess so judging by the post date...)? I would really love to get this recording back.

    Thanks.
