 I assume that in order for it to speak for a message to one of your *other* SSIDs that your mobile must be within RF range of the digi that gates it, or the originator, right? Also, if one is willing, there may even be some Japanese words that sound like useable English --

 From http://bit.ly/1bYo9lj first hit:
If you have the VS-3 chip in your 0700 radio, it will spell the call sign of the sending
 station on all messages sent to you. It will do this for all messages sent to your call sign,
 regardless of SSID. This is especially useful when you are in your car. That way, you
 get allerted to messages sent to your home station even if you are mobile. In addition to
 this, if a message starts with a percent sign ‘%‘, it will spell the entire message. For
 example, if I send a message to Bob, WB4APR, the message would be:
 The D700 radio would then say:
 ‘W’ ‘U’ ‘2’ ‘ZED’ I SEE YOU TOO
 In addition to the alphabet and numbers, it has some extra words. These words can be
 accessed by putting their codes in square brackets. For example:
 WU2Z>APRS::WB4APR :%ICU[6b]2[62]
 Will say:
 And it goes on to provide the word table.

 Andrew,   What is the APRS message Code for “SPEAK THIS”.  I remember back in 1998 or so, I used that to cause the Kenwood Radios (with voice chip) to speak APRS messages.  But I went looking for something that documented this feature and could not find it!   I thought it was simply a backslash (\) that caused all after (or was it all between) to be spoken?   Our next APRS satellite can speak, and so we want it to be able to speak APRS messages.   Bob     From: aprssig-bounces at tapr.org [mailto:aprssig-bounces at tapr.org] On Behalf Of Andrew P.

 Subject: [aprssig] next beta build #61 of YAAC ("Yet Another APRS Client")      Greetings, all.
 The next beta build of YAAC has been released, automatically upgradeable the usual way or downloadable from the usual sources:
 The changes to YAAC itself are fairly minor (a few bugfixes), but the important change is support for the first draft of the new soundsplugin, which allows YAAC to use your sound card to audibly report various events occurring in the APRS network, such as:    
   - new stations and objects being heard
   - stations reporting emergency and priority conditions
   - locally-controlled objects being taken over by other stations
 Events can be reported as simple beeps, user-chosen sound files (WAV, etc.), or synthesized spoken speech (using the "espeak" speech synthesizer or other compatible applications).
 The soundsplugin is available for download from the same places as YAAC itself can be downloaded.
