#play(*outputs, options) ⇒ Object

Plays the specified sound file names. This method will handle Time/DateTime objects (e.g. Time.now), Fixnums (e.g. 1000), Strings which are valid Fixnums (e.g “123”), and direct sound files. To specify how the Date/Time objects are said pass in as an array with the first parameter as the Date/Time/DateTime object along with a hash with the additional options. See play_time for more information.

Examples:

Play file hello-world

play 'http://www.example.com/hello-world.mp3'
play '/path/on/disk/hello-world.wav'

Speak current time

play Time.now

Speak today's date

play Date.today

Speak today's date in a specific format

play Date.today, :strftime => "%d/%m/%Y", :format => "dmy"

Play sound file, speak number, play two more sound files

play %w"http://www.example.com/a-connect-charge-of.wav 22 /path/to/cents-per-minute.wav /path/to/will-apply.mp3"

Play two sound files

play "/path/to/you-sound-cute.mp3", "/path/to/what-are-you-wearing.wav"

#play_audio(file, options = {}) ⇒ Object

Plays the given audio file. SSML supports http:// paths and full disk paths. The Punchblock backend will have to handle cases like Asterisk where there is a fixed sounds directory.

  • :strftime (String)

    This format is what defines the string that is sent to the Speech Synthesis Engine. It uses Time::strftime symbols.

Raises:

  • (ArgumentError)

    if the given argument can not be played
