SAPI for Firemonkey FMX v.2

Components > Sound Effects > Other

By Andreas Faltinek.

Freeware + source 03 Dec 2018


A dll that export 3 functions: InitSapiFMX, SayOutLoud and FreeSapiFMX. Firemonkey does not support using any OLE-based component that wraps the Windows Speech API - because that Type-Library uses OLE which is VCL-based. So here is a basic speak function in a dll ready for use in Firemonkey apps. Just make sure that SapiFMX resides in the same directory as your exe. See how to declare the 3 functions using ... stdcall; external 'SapiFMX.dll'; in the source - and also note: You cannot send string - the DLL requires PWideChar as follows: procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject); var pch: PWideChar; begin pch := PWideChar(Edit1.text); SayOutLoud(pch); end; You need to call InitSapiFMX before calling SayOutLoud. Tested with Delphi XE7 - might work with others... Have fun.

TRSSparser v.1.0

Components > Internet > HTML, XML and so on

By Andreas Faltinek.

Freeware + source 10 Jan 2010


Turn over a filename (the one that is the actual rss-file downloaded before to your hard drive) and TRSSparser will return ChannelTitle, ChannelLogoURL if any, and an Array of all the items in that file consisting of
  • Title
  • Link
  • Description
  • Category
  • PhotoURL
I have looked forever for something like this myself, but hated all the hazzle with xml-components that crash half the time or only support RSS Version x but not ATOM version y...

So I decided to go for it the old fashioned way: parse it myself. Still some work to do when encountering some unwanted characters in the text that the standard utf8-algorithms and such do not catch, like &#m8222 or the like, but my code handles most of that kind of stuff already.

Written and tested with D6, but I assume it will compile in any Delphi Version.

Requires: TBrkApart from Patrick Brisacier and Jean-Fabien Connault.
