RunTalk Builders Android App - Talks You Through Running Set-out.
RunTalk is an Android App that speaks running measurements while you mark them out.
Enter the increment and start point, then hit 'Next' as the app speaks the running measurements.
With the Imperial version, enter increment as inches and fraction, eg: 27 13/32, or as decimal inches.
Select precision of spoken results from 1/2" down to 1/32" and each increment is rounded to selected fraction.
Hit 'Auto Speak' and it will speak the measurements at set intervals (6 seconds by default).
Put the phone in your shirt pocket, leaving both hands free to mark out.
Tap 'Voice Input' and say Next, Repeat, Back or Stop to have the app speak the results to you,
or scroll down to a screen sized Next button that's easy to tap (even in your top pocket).
Install RunTalk Imperial or
RunTalk Metric from Google Play.
When ready to accept a spoken command, the app will say 'Go'. You say Next, and after the app speaks the measurement there is a delay to allow you to mark it out,
before the app says 'Go' again, ready for the next voice command. If the delay is too long, say Faster.
This has the same effect as saying Next, but the time delay is shortened by 1 second.
If the time delay is too short, say Slower.
You can also say Wait to delay the next voice request (Go) for 1 minute.
If you put your phone in your top pocket, and tap the big 'Next' button through your shirt,
position the 'Lock Scroll' checkbox to top of screen and check it to stop the screen scrolling, moving the button from view.
While testing this app, it became apparent that walking along marking out with a tape and marker, by your self, while constantly saying 'Next', 'Repeat' or 'Back'
can draw the attention of onlookers. Be prepared to explain what you are doing to people who may think you are crazy.
