[Solved] Change self-voicing voice?

#1 Post by Rekoija » Sat Jun 06, 2020 7:36 pm

You know that self-voice function Renpy has, where if you press "V" a bot will read text aloud for you?
I wanna know if it's possible to change the voice per character, so:

1: is there a different gendered bot in renpy already? (the default one for me is a woman, but i read somewhere someone had male as default?)
2: can you choose a bot for each character, or do they all need to use the same one?


Any help would be appreciated, even if it's telling me that it's not a possibility.
Thanks in advance!



edit: my previous question was answered somewhere else, and there's been no replies here, so i might as well repurpose.

usually by now (40 views on the post) there'd be an answer, so I'm guessing either nobody knows how to do it, because self-voicing isn't exactly an important part of game making, or because it's not possible to do.
it's fine either way, it's not something I *need,* just thought it'd be nifty. - either way, I'll keep the post up, in case anyone wants to give it a shot.

The answer is no.

Self-voicing is meant for assistive text, so it just passes it off to your OS's speech synthesizer.
