Ma 'eylan Ayfalulukanä, Thanks for the note of appreciation. Glad that the garmin thing is working! I wouldn't suggest looking too closely at the pronunciation, though, it may not be  the best in places.

Ma Taronyu fu tuteo, can you provide some samples of the audio, I'm really curious to know how it came out and what it sounds like.

That said, you did a lot of things right. One thing that seems to catch me is not noticing r's, to 'flip' them. There is an R at the end of ftär I have been 'missing' for a long time, and not flipping it. Listening to the Satnav quickly fixed that.

I know you had to 'stretch' the meanings of a lot of words to make this work. IMHO, that is better than no Na`vi-in-a-Satnav at all!

In any case, I'll be on the lookout for mispronunciations as well. I'll consider it to be a practical test of listening skills.

For those interested, there is a free tool offered by Garmin where you can create your own voice for a Satnav. But I don't think I will be able to outdo what has already been done, for at least a good while.

Irayo nìmun!

Ma Ftiafpi, I can't. I don't have the audio, and it would be a breach of contract for me to post it, I believe. In any event, it would have gotten the sound dude in trouble.

That video shows you, though! Thanks for uploading it! I've been wondering what it sounded like.

Oh, that's fine, that video was exactly what I was looking for.

This sounds great! It came out better than I could have hoped and sounds very professional. Your voice sounds great for the directions and is very clear and easy to understand. Also, as a plus, it sounded very...movie-like. What I mean is to the untrained ear this will sound great and I hope this is a real hit for the Na'vi language. I wonder how many people have downloaded this for their Garmin?

I really wish I had a Garmin now, this would be so much fun. I wonder if there is a way I could add this into my own GPS?

I seem to be hearing the word 'set' a lot, but don't see it on the list. Is this word supposed to be on the list?

I think I changed a bit of the words while doing it to be more accurate. It's possible I added 'now' now and again...

That would explain why it is on some prompts and not on others.

Here is the list of the Garmin words we translated. There may be one of two errors. Pxasik, if so.
Crikey, why do I only discover this now? HRH!!
I've almost figured out half the words, though, just by listening and watching the display. WOOT!

That's awesome.

Wow.

Best portrait of me. Ever.

On another note, I wonder why one of the commenters thinks that "the voice is all wrong." I didn't think the pronunciation was all that bad. (The trilled r, sure.) I assume she means the voice quality - which is odd, if you think about it. The Na'vi would have deeper voices than we do, for a start - my voice is probably more like what the Na'vi would have sounded like than their own human voices in the movie...

It's not the artist that thinks it's wrong, it's some random dA commenter. :P >:(

Realised that afterwards. My bad.

Yea, the DA joke refers to the Navi GPS, not our Na'vi voice for the Garmin. Though, I think it totally works either way.
