Hi RobertThis seems to be a common problem from what the others say.
Importantly, I have successfully installed the plugin. A few quick
thoughts now as getting past my bedtime. Will give a more detailed
I initially put it in the Audacity plugin folder under program files
(x86) and it didn't show up. When I put it into the audacity plugins
folder under my appdata it was then available. When assigning a shortcut
it seemed to alternate its name between "report" and "tts", which kept
me on my toes. But after the requisite level of muttering I sorted it out.
It's just a proof of concept.
I don't find the speech rate or volume offensive and have not given much
thought at this stage as to how I would tweak it, but would probably
increase it a bit.
You will find that the peak will be reported immediately, no matter
The plugin does exactly what you advertised. I am astonished that you
can report up to 120dB. To my limited understanding, above 0 is a
no-no. But it reported my levels accurately when compared to Audacity
itself and to the Peak Finder rft. The thing that tool provides is the
location of the peak(s), which can be crucial. It can also be tediously
slow in a large file - have not tried yours on one of those yet.
It is a great concept. I will report further.
