    If you want only the last announcement, then adding a device action to each speech event that you want to capture that replicates the text in a virtual device string could work. That way you'd need just one device, and it would display the text of the most recent announcement.

    From a different perspective, though, you might also take a look at your announcement strategy more broadly. Two thoughts come to mind.
    - Are you trying to convey too much information orally? Maybe some of your announcements should be in the form of text messages.
    - Are you taking full advantage of the power of sound? One trick I use is to precede most text announcements with a sequence of tones. The sound differs depending on the type of information. That does three things. First, the tone gets my attention, so I can start listening before there is new information spoken. Second, the tone conveys the category of information that is about to be conveyed, so I am mentally ready with context. Third, because the category of info is already clear, the spoken part can be quite short, providing only the specifics. That makes it easy to add a repeat of that part if it's something that I tend to miss without repetition.

    You could probably take the "Phone Recent Calls" script from this post:
    https://forums.homeseer.com/showpost...1&postcount=60
    and modify it to hold the last few speech items. Only problem is you would have to modify all your speech events to add a call to the new script to store what was spoken. It looks like a lot of work, but it looks like it's possible.

    started a topic log to hstouch

    log to hstouch

    I have several voice announcements for various things and if I am not paying attention when it is voiced, I end up going "wtf did she just say"? So I was thinking does anyone know of anyway to capture the text from the voice announcements, and put them into a log (I say log cause I don't know what else to call it) that could be displayed on hstouch. That way anytime I didn't catch what was said I could just look at a log. any ideas?
Working...
