How VO_coder works

VO_coder breaks down a spreadsheet into a list of dialogue lines, then makes multiple requests to Google Translate to convert those lines into audio files and downloads them.

Before we get started

  1. You're going to need to install:
    Node.js (https://nodejs.org/en/download/)

  2. Download the VO_coder zip, and extract it where you like on your computer.

  3. Install Grunt
    On PC: double click "install grunt.bat"
    On Mac: double click "install grunt.command"
    In Terminal: Type "npm install -g grunt-cli" and hit enter

  4. Run the installer
    double click "install vocoder.bat" on windows
    double click "install vocoder.command" on mac
    Type "npm install" in terminal

This task will take a while to run, as it downloads things. It'll close when it's finished

Getting your audio

  1. Edit the src/csv/lines.csv file with your filename and text.

  2. Replace the default icons in "src/icons" with your own.

  3. Run the compiler:
    double click "create audio.bat" on windows
    double click "create audio.command" on mac
    Type "grunt" in terminal and press enter
