Hey Y'all,

Is there a way to bulk add comments to each track instead of individual? I ask this because I want the station to announce the artist and song and I have over 5000 songs. Is there an easier way? Thanks.

Easier way?  I think so.

You say you want it to announce every song.

Modify the NowPlaying.xml file.

Quote
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Table>
  <Settings>
    <Tracks2Speak>1</Tracks2Speak>
  </Settings>
  <Message>
    <Voice>0</Voice>
    <tts>Here's $artist$, with $title$.</tts>
  </Message>
</Table>

The important part would be setting TTS to speak every song by modifying the <Tracks2Speak> value to one.

I believe doing this would have the net effect of what you're looking for.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

The code works perfectly, thanks! It took me awhile to figure out how to use the code. It turned out I had the file in the wrong folder. Thanks for the help!
