I’ve been trying to get my sound notifications setup using VLC thing but so far TTS is hit or miss…with a lot more miss than hit. I’m using Big talker smartapp to announce motion in my hallway. More times than not I get a notification that “Bigtalker couldn’t announce…etc”. On the odd occasion it works. My smartapp logs show the following:
Bunch of letters and numbers… BIGTALKER(1.1.7) || ERROR: ST Platform issue (textToSpeech)? I tried textToSpeech() twice, SmartThings wouldn’t convert/process. I give up, Sorry… _
Bunch of letters and numbers… 7:50:06 PM: trace BIGTALKER(1.1.7) || Trying textToSpeech function again… _
Bunch of letters and numbers… 7:50:06 PM: error BIGTALKER(1.1.7) || ERROR: ST Platform issue (textToSpeech)? com.amazonaws.AmazonServiceException: Account is not active (Service: tts; Status Code: 403; Error Code: null; Request ID: Bunch of letters and numbers…_
Bunch of letters and numbers… BIGTALKER(1.1.7) || TALK(motion) |mP| >> Hallway Clear_
I noticed that others were having issues with TTS back in May but that thread is listed as resolved and gone quiet.
