I’ve updated the Android Dislexicon with some additional suffixes for a bit more variety. I’m planning to add more prefixes and suffixes periodically as I have time.
While working on my Android implementation of the Dislexicon, I realized I would need a SeekBar preference to adjust the text-to-speech speed. I found a couple of SeekBar prefs online, but none of them fit my needs. Specifically, I wanted it to:
- Appear on the main preference screen, instead of a separate window accessed via a button
- Fill the entire width of the screen
- Allow a minimum value other than zero
Here’s what I ended up with, as it appears in Dislexicon:
I’ve released a new version of Weatherspect, primarily because the weather data source it uses, Weather::Underground, isn’t working at the moment. The new version includes a fixed version of Weather::Underground. It also has turkeys and pumpkins for thanksgiving, and the ability to control how many things are walking around the screen.
