What's new in this version (1.18.3):
Jelly Bean MR1 bug fix.
Volume adjustment fix (thanks Delyan)
Tweaked the timing when speaking at the end, as players like MortPlayer broadcast a 'stop' which truncated the speech.
Jelly Bean bug fix release
Fixed broken toasts when speaking at end of track.
Option to speak the text at the end of the track.
Some minor changes to the way volume is handled to avoid ICS bugs.
Speaks the Songs and Toasts the Tracks.
This application speaks the track name, artist and album title when playing music using the default media players, or others that support scrobbling.
It's useful if you have a large music collection and cannot see the screen to check the names, e.g whilst exercising.
It uses the native Text-to-Speech capabilities of the device to speak. If you don't like the way it speaks, or pronounces words, then download an alternative TTS provider for your device. Try the SVOX ones, they may be better!
Tune Announcer also toasts the song details whilst speaking. Shows the album cover, track name, artist and album name.
The details of the tune pop up are large enough to be comfortably and safely read whilst driving.
Toasts can be enabled and disabled independently of the Announcements.
Tasker can be used to create Action Intent Tasks that enable or disable Tune Pop and Announcements. See this blog for more details : http://softwyer.wordpress.com/2011/02/28/tasker-support-for-tune-announcer-pro/

- speak at the end of the track, rather than the beginning.
Notes on speaking at the end of the track:
This relies on the track containing a reasonable estimate of the time as well as it being scrobbled correctly. Scrobble Droid and the Built in Android/HTC seem to be OK for scrobbling track length.
If you fast forward through a track, or pause it, then there will be no speech at the end. Android does not scrobble this information.
Toasts always appear at the start of the track, regardless of 'speak at end' setting.
As always, please email us with any issues so that we can fix them!
