    Votox "Dictionary" share

    After getting my utility up and running this AM, I can\'t help but see the potential for us to share what we develop individually.

    Specifically, I think it would be useful to post what new votox \'words\' we all come up with.

    I was working on a piece this morning. To start this off, here\'s a few of the words I came up with that sounded terrific in the mix (mixing vowels and pitched and non-pitched consonants can be a little tricky.)

    Glo rr!EE (Glory)

    DEE a Tee (Diety)

    Hoo saa nnaa (Hosana)

    This is a simple beginning, and I am sure others could make them sound even better, but its a start.

    Everyone could set up a \'word document\' for this dictionary and cut and paste what is needed OR we could have a \'pull-down\' menu in the utility itself.

    Any comments?

    King,

    Once we get a bunch of us doing this we\'ll all get better at contributing to the \'data base\'. Heck, we might all write our post in votox (OK, maybe not, but one never....)

    King,

    As I look at your \"nice\" word it reminds me of what I learned today (THE JUDICIOUS USE OF THE \"$\" AFTER VOWELS).

    I think that you are having some fun [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

    I tell you what i will do in the future. Continue to share (or mail me) this votox words. The next step is learning. When i have a lot of votox words, i can insert some knowledge in the utility. Imagine the future utility with a english-votox convertor (instead of pop-up menu with only tens of words)...

    Re: Votox "Dictionary" share

    i like the English-Votox converter idea. I\'ll keep em\' coming.

    Re: Votox "Dictionary" share

    The 2000 most frequently used English words can be found here:

    http://www.edict.com.hk/lexiconindex/frequencylists/words2000.htm

    Seems to me that someone wiser than I could cut and paste that list, do some \"search and replace\" work on the vowel sounds and have a start on this dictionary that--after a little tweaking--could be made available to one and all.

    It\'s a start!

    great contribution, Jerry.

    What do you think, Nuno.

    Matter of fact, here\'s a better URL--the other one gives you a bunch of HTML when you cut and paste:

    Re: Votox "Dictionary" share

    Here is a Visual FoxPro database called VOTOX.DBF that contains all the words from the word site that Jerry Petit mentioned. I put in two fields. One for the word, and a second for the votox translation. It occurs to me though, that we may need a related table situation where there are multiple possible votox combinations for each word. I could develop an application that would allow the storage of that information if it would be useful.

    Unfortunately, I don\'t have and can\'t affort VOTA right now [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img] , but I\'ll do it anyway. Won\'t take much time.

    You can download the database at:

    http://www.cdsol.com/cdsol/downloads/votox.dbf

    If people want to use this table format to store their versions of words (you can add words too), I could compile a database of the combined tables from all participants.
