Translating Voice Alerts Correctly
Currently Voice Alerts supports English, German, Spanish, French and Italian. As long as i don’t master all of them i have used google translator to translate the difference sentences, so if you find some incorrect strings on your language or the app speaks something that nobody can understand, please send me an email.
Also if your are sooo friendly like Paolo, Simone and Margo (They have already helped with italian and french) i can send you a copy of the string file for you to correct it completelly (it contains like 100 phrases).
As you already know, Voice Alerts converts the most common used abbreviations in SMS and Twitter messages ( c u l8r = see you later ). You can also contribute by sending me emails with some abbreviations conversions you use in your daily communications.
Ideas / Suggestions / Improvements
Do you have some ideas for the upcoming version of Voice Alerts? You think about some feature that would make Voice Alerts more usefulll for you and is still not implemented ? Something doesn’t work on your phone model as supposed? Drop me an email and i will work on it.
The users are being an important part of the development, and so will it be in the future. I appreciate your feedback.

Hi – very good web site you have created. I enjoyed reading this posting. I did want to issue a remark to tell you that the design of this site is very aesthetically sweet. I used to be a graphic designer, now I am a copy editor for a merchandising firm. I have always enjoyed working with information processing systems and am attempting to learn computer code in my spare time (which there is never enough of lol).

Uso tu maravillosa aplicación en mi HTC Desire HD y funciona 95% bien, pero me encuentro que cuando recibo una llamada y contesto sigue hablando y es muy incomodo. Por supuesto en “Ajuste generales” –> “Alertas durante Llamada” tengo deshabilitada la opción, pero parece que, al menos en mi Desire HD, esta opción no funciona (Froyo 2.2). ¿Tienes alguna idea al respecto?
Ánimo, y gracias por poner esta aplicación al alcance de todos. Me parece una aplicación interesante y barata.

Hola juan manuel,
gracias por tu feedback, la funcion de desactivar las alertas durante la llamada la estuve probando pero lo revisare de nuevo para solucionarlo. Si encuentras cualquier otra cosa que no funcione como es esperado no dudes en contactarme, este tipo de informacion por parte de los usuarios me permite mejorar voice alerts cada vez mas.
Me alegro que te guste la aplicacion, un saludo.

I’m italian and used your application it works fine but some texts are not right: for exemple in italian the sequence: “Sono 2 ore e 20 minuti” have about no sense:
Should be corrected in: “Sono le 2 e 20″ or less informal “Sono le ore 2 e 20″.
And some other little errrors, if you want I can help you in the right taslation without problem
Let me know
