Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

you can also make a that it only speaks again after a certain number of seconds

not at my coding computer but psuedo code is this (translate to C#)

datetime lastalert = now

if time difference seconds (now - last_alert ) > 10 // only voice every 10 seconds
lastalert = now

the Ninja Alert has a built in rearm capability, the voice does not, you have to code it like above

@vantojo, Im not a coder and have now spent at least 16 hours on this apparently simple problem. Even your code above must be short hand that a coder would understand, i.e... make something a variable, put this piece of the code here and not there.

If anyone visits this thread again and figures out how to limit the speak to a single alert I would apprecate if you would mention me so I can try and fix this. For now I fear I have wasted the weekend. Thanks.

See existing thread

These problems were addressed a while ago. See if anything in this thread is helpful.

That thread and this one should be combined into one.

Look at this post in particular. It is not a good idea to use Async mode. Way too risky to allow the speaker to paralyze Ninjatrader, you might miss a stop or something.
