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
You're going to need to install:
Download the VO_coder zip, and extract it where you like on your computer.
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
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
Edit the src/csv/lines.csv file with your filename and text.
Replace the default icons in "src/icons" with your own.
