Have an exsisting program. See "home automation" under completed works for details (use Quick Search).
Now I want it to play wave files, downloaded this code from a web site and it works:
As this page says it stops the program when it plays a wavfile, which must not happen in my program.
Basically my program is a big loop, getting data from the interface board. When a variable is set in the loop, I want a short wave file to play (will never be more than 10 words) and they must be cued. If several variables are set and call several different wave files,the wave files must play in sequence without slowing (significantly) or stopping the loop. The exsisting program is "slow" now , looping at the most 10 times a second. Not more than 10 different wave files will be called at any given time.
I might need help modifing the module once I get it integrated with my exisiting program.If you can make a standalone module that randomly calls different wav file every 5 seconds or so and cues them to play sequentiatily and at the same time have a counter in the loop count continously without being interupted, I should be able to integrate it.

The next stage in the developing of my program is getting the modem to dial out and play wav files. Hopefully I will be able to call into the program and prompt it for information, but that is down the road aways.

Do not expect any obligations from the code writer, just some guidance.

Hi Greg,

I've done a lot of work with home and industrial automation. For your project, adding wav capability is easily accomplished. What I propose to do is provide you with a standalone module and help you to integrate into your program. I would like to take a look at your code to come up with the best method of stacking the wavs to play sequentially. There are any number of methods for doing this, but it really depends on the existing structure of your program.

Please take a moment to review my online resume and client comments regarding my performance on their projects.

Best Regards and good luck to you on your project!
