SoundPak use very little heap memory (about 550 bytes). SoundPak is automatically installed in a folder called Extensions in the extras drawer.

Last Update:

Announce is a cure for the "Text to Speech Envy" suffered by MP 120 and 130 owners!

To configure Announce, tap the application icon and a prefs dialog will come up.. it should be self-explanatory. Credit: Matthew Vaughn.   79k

Sound to Soup 1.01
Last Update:

Sound To Soup (copyright 1997 by DMP Systems) is a program that will enable you transform a NotePad recording into a soup and have that sound available for the O/S to use in any place that you can select sounds. Use it to make your own Alert sounds.  Just make a sound recording in Notepad (with a memorable name).  Then, press the 'Add' button in Sound To Soup. This will copy the sound into it's own soup and add it to the Registered Sound List. You'll see the soup in the Storage drawer named: "Soundxxxxxxxx:DMP" where xxxxxx is the name you gave it. If you did not name it, then a number will be used. You may now use that sound in any application that lets you select sounds. A well written app lets you use any sound that have been 'Registered' with the O/S. Open up Preferences and tap 'Alarm' and then 'Alarm Sound'. Sound To Soup functions for 45 days unless registered for $10 USD. Credit: DMP Systems.   20k
