If you’ve got some weird characters in your meta-data for the music you play, you’ve probably come across the following announcement “Now playing a song open square bracket twelve speech marks version close square bracket”
With the latest release you can choose which characters are ignored when announcing the current song. Hurrah!
This is an Android application that announces the name and artist of the song currently being played. It’s useful if you have a large music collection and cannot see the screen to check the names, e.g whilst exercising. If you’ve only got that one Kylie album, then maybe this is not for you ;-D
It uses the native Text-to-Speech capabilities of the device to speak.
Example: The application will speak “Now playing ‘Firestarter’ by ‘The Prodigy'”
Tune Announcer also provides a visual indication of the track details via a customised toast that shows the track, artist and album names, along with an image of the album cover. For more details, see this announcement.
