Text to Speak

**DISCLAIMER: https://starbystargaming.com/showthread?tid=6095

(1) Have you read through the Common Suggestions and Answers post? - I have indeed

(2) What is your suggestion? - Adding a way to use a text to speak in game (like /tts "message")

(3) What made you feel that this change was necessary or would make a great addition? - I believe if this was implemented it could be used to give a voice to those who don't use a microphone in game, like I know some players that don't and I know some staff don't. It would provide those a voice who don't have one typically, but would also have other uses. For example you could use it as a prefect to give warnings, as I know some people use in game text binds to give warnings but students miss these typically, whereas if it was a voice they'd probably be more likely to hear/abide. 

(4) What could be possible negatives if your suggestion were to be added? - People may use it to play troll sounds like spamming @@@@@@@@@@ - people using it to say hatespeech wouldn't be an issue though as it would still type in local/nearby chat what the person is saying and their name so you could translate if its another language or outright see if they've use hateful language.

This is cool and all, and a thoughtful thing to do for those who are uncomfortable using their mics, but there is already so much audio clogging going on the server its super overwhelming sometimes. With the spamming of halflife music that is 200% louder than the rest of the tracks, random kids yelling and screaming. Some of the spell noises are aids. I think the server needs to go through all the ogg's and turn them down like 25%.
I feel like this would just add to this issue, and the potential for abuse is just too effortless that it wouldn't be worth the positives.

I like this idea but I know for a fact that I would definitely abuse it, and so will others, most likely.

Either way, I'm +1 lol

I can agree with a lot of what Joey and Garbo have said, this is a good idea but of course people would abuse it.

My argument to that is what if we had an option to turn on whether we could hear/use the function as I think this is a good idea.

unless you're rping as stephen hawking in an event -1

there's already ways of doing this. might be harmless to make it so that someone has to click to hear the TTS but otherwise no thanks

Agreeing with Joey on this there is already so much noise happening on server sometimes that it's overwhelming and it would get abused a lot.
A lot of people have mics and they've made the choice to not use them if people miss their chat binds then that's on them for not using their mic.

the only possible solution i see to avoid the spam and abuse of this would be by whitelisting people who truly need it and are trustworthy around the community, but besides that, it would still be kinda aids. neutral

I'd +1 if by default hearing TTS was disabled and you have to toggle it on. Other than that, see Joey's response
