SatNav and ITV
« on: November 11, 2010, 03:52:04 pm »
So, on Tuesday I went down to London. I entered a random studio and spent an hour and a half recording audio for an application that is sponsored by Premier Ltd., a Fox PR group, and is going to be for Garmin Satellite Navigation equipment. What does that mean? It means that, probably fairly soon, you'll be able to download audio files of me saying "turn left" and "enter the roundabout" and play it on your SatNav such that, as you are driving, you can get completely lost. Ftiafpi and I worked on the translations, and they should be pretty solid. I also did many, many checks of the audio, so, for the most part, they should be pronounced correctly. I apologise in advance for the incredibly breathy trilled r's - it's a well known fact that I can't make them - and for any other mistakes.

Secondly, the next day, after taking the GRE tests for graduate school and attending a student protest that erupted into a violent mob taking over the Tories HQ (which I saw, but wasn't a part of), I went into another studio and did an interview for iTV. Around Christmas, tune in and watch 'Family Film of the Decade' - it'll cover Avatar, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribean, and probably other films. I'll be there, talking about Avatar, why I learned Na'vi, and I made it clear that I want LearnNavi.org to go in, as well. So, press! Hooray!. :D

Here is the list of the Garmin words we translated. There may be one of two errors. Pxasik, if so.

YAY! I can't wait to hear these! Awesome job little PR monkey! (heh, you are totally becoming worthy of your title of #1 fan, you're definitely the most interviewed)

Well, this is txantsan and I hope they both turn out well.

The octal system could be a bit tricky here.

Which is why I didn't use it. I opted instead for 'eyt and nayn.

This is awesome!   :D

I've been thinking of getting a GPS, this may push me into actually doing it.  And yes, I was leaning towards Garmin anyway....

Wou!

Soooo awesome!!!! ;D My family even has a Garmin!!!

Too bad I don't drive (yet) and my parents don't speak Na'vi, but once I can drive it'll be an awesome way to REALLY force me to learn this stuff. :D

I wish this worked for my GPS...I wonder if I can modify the files to make them work? Hmmm, I also wonder if we should do this for other GPSs?

The answer to the last part is "yes". If you can, that is ^^

Will this work on USA Garmins? I'd imagine so, but...

Also, maybe this'll give me some motivation to start learning the language again...

Yes, you'll just have to download it and set your language to "British-English"

{b}Tewti![/b] Glad I waited to buy one of these units. (Any idea what Garmin models this will be supported on?) This will definitely be a motivator to upgrade my navigation GPS. Normally, I can't stand these units when they talk to you. But in Na`vi?? That will be a different story....

BTW, what is a 'sliproad'? I am assuming this is a British term of some sort.

Yawey ngahu!

I was curious about that too, so I looked it up and Wiktionary defines a slip road as "A segment of roadway that joins a motorway to ordinary roads (in either direction)", so I guess that would be an on/off ramp.   :)

Yeah, British English is pretty much a separate language.
