How-To

  • 1- Copy a non-TTS VPM voice file from your GPS to your computer
  • 2- Start NonTTSVoiceEditor wizard and follow the directives
  • 3- Select Extract to split the VPM into WAV files
  • 4- Use an external program like Audacity to record/edit the WAV files
  • 5- Select Play to preview the WAV voice samples and phrases
  • 6- Select Merge to join the WAV files into a VPM file
  • 7- Copy the newly modified non-TTS VPM voice file back to your GPS

The program will merge the audio file you have. Make sure they are in the same format as the original WAV files. All files should be mono (rather than stereo). They could be 16-bit PCM audio or 4-bit ADPCM audio at 22 kHz. I provide no conversion for now, but this may be coming later.
