What does "Allow Wave Files" do?
« on: July 02, 2010, 06:58:49 PM »
In the general configuration page there are 2 settings I cant find any info on and no searches turn up anything.
Allow Wave Files
Allow Speech
Any ideas or know how to use them?

Never tried but I think it allows you to utilise sound files in macros, for example you may want to play a tune to signify the end of a programme.

There was a post yesterday or this morning that explained how to use the speech. .wav files work similaraly. You can probably also find the info on the Wiki.

Wow, I did 2 different searches this afternoon just prior to my post. I will look again right now.

I find 1 post from 2006. It does show where to find wav. files but not really how to use them. I also found nothing about it in the Wiki. The reason I ask, when watching some of the youtube videos some peoples steppers are singing more exaggerated than I hear from mine. I know my speeds are high when playing around at times so that wouldnt be the issue. I think they are playing sounds for each axis/change/dir. Something. Just curious. I would like it to yell at me!

Gerry,
That’s neat, I never knew mach could talk! Wonder what else it can do that I’m unaware of.  For instance is there a way to name macros and call them from Gcode?  (I’ve tried and it didn’t work for me.) This time next week I will have forgot what I called this one. How do you folks keep track of macros other than a separate data base?

FYI - an updated version of that manual is available direct from the documentation page of the mach site:
