Quest Logger
Version: 3.3
by: Nightness [More]
This is a grass roots effort!!!

Quest Logger is phase 1 in a plan to create a mod that will have quest givers read the quests to you! And you could get the opportunity to have millions of people hear your voice speak as one of the game's quest givers!

Here is an outline for this project
===============================================

Phase 1: Have users collect a database of quests they've viewed (what Quest Logger is for). The quest information is located in the "World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\{ACCOUNT NAME}\SavedVariables\QuestLogger.lua" file.

Phase 2: Setup web site to collect and process submissions from users to create a single database.

Phase 3: Setup web site to allow WoW users to submit their voice roles based on acting-scripts generated from the collected data. When submitting, you will need to read all quest text for a particular NPC.

Phase 4: Users will vote on their favorites and a final package will be released!

===============================================

Here is how you can help out right now... Load this add-on and in the background it will log information about the quests you've looked at or completed. In the near future, I will offer a web site that you can upload the logs to. They will be used to compile one giant database of quest giver dialog. Which I will turn in to "acting-scripts", one for each NPC.

We can do this!!! Who's with me?

Quest Text To Speech

Hey guys, I found this project for Text to Speech in wow,http://wowspeech.net/
I e-mailed them last night & he got back to me saying he might open-source it.
His site is: http://trylinux.org/
If anybody else finds anything for Quest Text To Speech, add me in X-fire with mention of "wow text to speech" in the invite. My X-fire name is: lamron333

PS: I tried the demo & it no longer works with the new patches as of now.

PPS: I found an easy way to get a lot of the quest text: http://www.wowwiki.com/Category:Quests

Just checking in with a version update of WoW 3.3, glad to see the support is still here and growing.

I've enabled the "Optional Files" section, please use that section to upload your quest logs. Please do not upload any logs unless you've used the addon for several months, a large number of small logs will just make processing them take longer.

When it comes time to do the voice recording, I'd like to be in on that too - I regularly get comments about my voice on vent/ts (and when I worked as an operator at a 500 room hotel, too).

Too bad WoW doesn't support Text to speech through.
It would be too costly for Blizzard, GOOD software to do text-to-speech conversion costs alot of money, also a variety of voices and accents would need to be used... plus they would have to support many languages (or risk losing non-en customers). Should good GNU text-to-speech software be release, it would be possible to skip having the supporters record the actual NPC's quest text. This would save time for sure, but we would also miss out on sharing our voice-acting with the rest of the world.

Given text-to-speech software has been out for at least 17 years now, it is much more likely that we will get this project completed before any good GNU text-to-speech software is released.

I really hate feeling like I'm raining on your parade and maybe you have thought of this, but I felt like you should realize what you're getting yourself into.
I have thought of this. This script actually will strips out your name and replace it with "[NAME]", it also tracks your class and race, every time it saves a new piece of quest text. I like the idea jasje had using "friend", "brother", and we could find other words to sub in too.

Believe me I know what I'm getting myself into. I'll provide all the tools, and with everyone working together we can get this done!

Just make a simple php script that will scan wowhead database by questID and stores it into a text database simmilar to what you have done

http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=1
and goes up to about 13500

and stage one will be over for you
There are many reason... Accuracy checking, feasibility test (events used in this script are essential to make the final script), LUA formated already (need for final script), and most importantly the quest text is sorted by NPC.

Why would you put other languages together in one package? The enUS/enGB package will not be 10GB. It should be between 1-2GB for this package, thats not very big considering the game is around 15GB.

Initially it would be in English. But there is nothing preventing other language packs from being developed using the same add-on scripts.
