Time Speaker

Smallest Lua-app so far :) User on a forum needed a way to get current time announced since he could not look at the screen when flying. Jeti does not do this so I made a tiny app for the user to enjoy flying without stress of the time.

Really simple as you can see.

Featured functions

  • Speaks current time when switch is activated

Available for DC/DS-14/16/24, requires firmware 4.22 or higher. App does not run with older firmware.


In short: Copy the .lc (or .lua, the .lc is memory-optimized) file from github here to your transmitters Apps-folder, if there is a translation file copy the .jsn file to Apps/Lang-folder on your transmitter. Head on to “Applications” -> “User applications” and add the app. Guide on installation of Lua-apps available here if you need some more in-depth guide.

Setting up and usage of TimeSpeaker

Settings are so simple something can be. Define a switch and you’re done.

Usage is also from the simpler side. When switch is activated transmitter first announces hours as number and then minutes as number. For example 22:06 would be “twenty-two six”. If your a morning-person 08:15 would be announced as “eight fifteen”.

If you leave the switch on time will be announced every 10 seconds.
