How this driver works
When the driver is installed an announcement is automatically created and all rooms are added to this announcement. The driver will then use this announcement as the conduit for the voice alerts. Dealers simply need to use Composer Actions to make different voice alerts. Cinegration Agents can also integrate with this driver and can utilize the voice feature once this driver is installed.
Can the driver say anything on a Control4 audio zone?
The driver can take any text string (up to 2000 characters) and will convert this to a WAV file and play it on the speakers. The driver uses Google Voice API for WAV creation. Average tested action trigger to voice alert is around 2-4 seconds
