Hi all,

You probably would remeber that...from time to time i have been asking
for your help  (for my talking clock project) unfortunately, with out any
success... probably i am asking too much!

well i am ging to ask the ?  again in the hope that some body some where
might turn up with the solution.

Can any one of you help with  my project.
I need some code for the pic
or any alternative idea is wellcome by me

any one willing to help please email me at spam_OUTshaileTakeThisOuTspamessex.ac.uk

Thanks for your help

Hi.

Your request is a bit too large for anyone to cover, other than to point
you towards other sources on the web, which you could find through your
own research. It's a bit like saying "how would I start designing a
car?" or "anybody know why my car doesn't work?". Where would someone
begin? If you you have a specific query, you might get more response.
E.g. "Anybody know if  a car diesel engine can be run off agricultural
grade diesel fuel" or "anybody know why I get strange knocking noises
with certain grades of fuel?".

If you ask how to do entire projects, people will feel you are asking
them to do your R&D for you.

Hi

Thanks for the reply.

well there is a special  chip by ISD it is called ISD chipcorder
you probably know this already.
the Isd chipcorder can happly record any speech in analog format so
the problem of a/d and d/a conversion is gone.
what i need is a pic wizard to program a pic for me :-) so that it can
capture the clock data from external clock  module and map this
information to the recorded speech on the ISD chipcorder.

Do you think a pic can do this?

Hi

well my last email sound like I have no idea where to start..that is not
true really.
I have already  recorded the neccessary speech using ISD  chipcorder and
already build a digital clock
what I need is a pic wizard to program a pic for me
:-) so that it can
capture the clock data from external clock  module and map this
information to the recorded speech on the ISD chipcorder.

how about that...still too much?

       Think divide and conquer.  You've got to do two main tasks.  One
is to read the clock which you have not described so it is next to
impossible to tell exactly what needs to be done, there, but you must read
the clock and be able to use the digits you got as pointers to various
addresses in the memory of the sound chip.  I haven't yet built anything
like this so I can't be any more specific, but that is the thought process
that one needs to at least start solving the problem.  If I were doing this
project, I would concern myself with controlling the voice chip first.
Look at the number of pins you will need and the protocol to address the
chip and then go from there.  The PIC, itself, can be your clock and
voice chip controller since it doesn't take but a few counters to behave
like a digital clock.  I would want to use an interrupt to serve as master
tick generator for this clock and then use the counter values to access the
words you have programmed in to the voice chip.  The tasks you must do and
the number of pins you need for doing them will dictate which PIC and which
strategy works best for your particular situation.  That is what this game
is all about and why it is fun.  If you break the task in to several smaller
ones and concentrate on just that part, you stand a good chance of ending
up with what you wanted.  As you run in to trouble with each of the small
tasks, there are probably scores on this list who have already been there
and done that but you need to supply most of the gray matter power to
bring all these small building blocks together at the end.  For some of us,
that's the only way we get anything done.
