text to speech - full body - iOS

François 3 years ago • updated by Alicia Macknight 6 months ago 5

Hello,

Is there a code sample to be told by a full body avatar the word HELLO on iOS?


The full body of the avatar http://sitepal.com/fullbody/ page works fine on iOS.


An example of the code of this avatar?


With thanks.
François SCHAAL

My HTML code works fine on Android but not on iOS

Hello Gil,


I still have trouble understanding the superb Sitepal technology for mobile avatars.


When I launch http://sitepal.com/fullbody/ on iOS and Android, the avatar appears without reading text.
You must click on the avatar to begin> or curved arrow that most users are not going to guess.

A link type> CLICK ME <therefore seems to me essential that you have explained in the forum.


I launched http://www.oddcast.com/support/saytext_fullbody.html on:


Android: the text to speech flawlessly by clicking the link> CLICK ME <
iOS: the text to speech DOES NOT work by clicking on the link> CLICK ME <


My problem remains the iOS text to speech: it works with the URL http://sitepal.com/fullbody/
but not with http://www.oddcast.com/support/saytext_fullbody.html


An example of HTML code with the link> CLICK ME <that runs on iOS would be welcome !


Best regards
François SCHAAL

Bonjour Gil,

J'ai toujours du mal à comprendre la superbe technologie de SITEPAL pour les avatars pour mobiles.

Lorsque je lance http://sitepal.com/fullbody/ sur iOS et sur Android, l'avatar s'affiche mais sans lecture de texte.
Il faut cliquer sur l'avatar pour lancer > ou la flèche ronde ce que la plupart des internautes ne vont pas deviner.

Un lien du type >CLICK ME< me semble donc indispensable, ce que vous avez expliqué dans le forum.

J'ai lancé http://www.oddcast.com/support/saytext_fullbody.html sur:

Android : le text to speech fonctionne parfaitement en cliquant sur le lien >CLICK ME<
iOS : le text to speech NE fonctionne PAS en cliquant sur le lien >CLICK ME<

Mon problème demeure le text to speech sous iOS : il fonctionne avec l'URL http://sitepal.com/fullbody/
mais pas avec http://www.oddcast.com/support/saytext_fullbody.html

Un exemple de code HTML avec le lien >CLICK ME< qui fonctionne sous iOS serait donc la bienvenue !

Cordialement
François SCHAAL


Hello François,


We are aware of the difference between behavior on iOS and on Android. The iOS Safari browser is more restrictive, and requires the user to interact with the character before enabling any API function to work. The Android browser seems to accept interaction with the page as sufficient.


We are considering adding an "activate" button on top of the character to make this clear. This button will appear only in iOS. What do you think of this possible solution?


Best,

Gil


Hello Gil,
An activation button when the avatar is iOS Safari is a good idea. It could also be displayed above the avatar with reduced opacity.
You may also detect if a “CLICK-ME” link type is present and use the button instead.
Care should be taken to the size of the button as, for example, to limit the avatars consumption data, I use a size of h = 100 and l = 57 pixels.
Best regards

Bonjour Gil,

Un bouton d'activation lorsque l'avatar est sous iOS Safari est une bonne idée.

Il pourrait aussi s'afficher par dessus l'avatar avec une opacité réduite.

Vous pourriez aussi détecter si un lien du type CLICK ME est présent et l'utiliser à la place du bouton.
Il faudra veiller aux dimensions de ce bouton car par exemple, pour limiter la consommation data des avatars, j'utilise une dimension de h=100 et l=57 pixels.

Hello Gil,

In the "Embed in Web Page" on Android, we should also find a solution because if I insert a link like> CLICK ME <, it does not stay near the avatar Full Body and moves along scrolling!


Best regards and good luck ...

Bonjour Gil,


Dans le mode "Embed in Web Page" sous Android, il faudrait aussi trouver une solution parce que si j'insère un lien comme >CLICK ME<, celui ne reste pas près de l'avatar Full Body et se déplace en même temps que le scrolling !



Cordialement et bon courage...
