VFTalkie : Enable your Visual Force pages to speak !!!

Monday, August 2, 2010 by Aslam - The Alexendra
Hi All,
Yesterday i was searching for some jQuery related plugins and found two very useful web services / plugins on net. Then i decided to integrate both of this services to Salesforce to get something useful.

jTalk :- Speech-enable your website!. It provides you much useful API to convert your text to speech on the fly. Go for more info here http://www.jtalkplugin.com/.

Dewplayer :- Dewplayer lecteur mp3 en flash! It provides a very cool flash mp3 player . Go for more info here http://www.alsacreations.fr/dewplayer.html.

The idea is simple. Whatever output data you have on your vf screen (Output Fields). Convert that into MP3 on run time using jTalk API and Pass it to a supporting player like Dewplayer.

Isn't it cool :)

Here is the simple demo for this integration:-

VF Talkie Account Detail

Here is the more interactive demo for this integration:-
VF Talkie Contact List

For integrating this into your VF page you just need to add VFTalkie component on your page with text as below:-

<c:vftalkie val="{!accRecord.Description}">

So, make sure your speaker is on then give it a try :)

If any questions, mail me at aslam.bari@gmail.com

Hope you enjoyed.
