Qt Speech (Text to Speech) is here

January 25, 2017 in C++, News, Programming, Programming Languages, Qt by admin

via Qt blog:

“I’m happy that with Qt 5.8.0 we’ll have Qt Speech added as a new tech preview module. It took a while to get it in shape since the poor thing sometimes did not get the attention it deserved. We had trouble with some Android builds before that backend received proper care. Luckily there’s always the great Qt community to help out.

What’s in the package? Text to speech, that’s about it. The module is rather small, it abstracts away different platform backends to let you (or rather your apps) say smart things. In the screen shot you see that speech dispatcher on Linux does not care much about gender, that’s platform dependent and we do our best to give you access to the different voices and information about them.”

Native Android style in Qt 5.4

December 6, 2014 in C++, News, Programming, Qt by admin


As you might have heard, the upcoming Qt 5.4 release delivers a new Android style. This blog post explains what it means in practice for different types of Qt applications.

Qt Widgets

Earlier it has been possible to get native looks for Qt Widgets applications on Android with the help of Ministro, a system wide Qt libraries installer/provider for Android. In Qt 5.4, selected parts of Ministro source code have been incorporated into the Android platform plugin of Qt. This makes it possible for Qt applications to look native without Ministro, even though applications wishing to use services provided by Ministro will continue to do so. In other words, Qt Widgets applications will look native regardless of the deployment method; system wide or bundled Qt libraries. Read the rest of this entry →

Using gcc’s 4.8.0 Address Sanitizer with Qt

April 19, 2013 in Android, Qt, Tips & Tricks by admin


One of the cool new features of gcc 4.8 is the built in “Address Sanitizer”: a memory error detector for C/C++ that will tell you instantly when you e.g. access already deleted memory. This is actually a Google project from Clang/LLVM, so for LLVM users this might be old stuff, but it wasn’t for me :) Since documentation on every day use is still a bit scarce on the web, I’m dumping the gist of how to put it to good use here, especially in the Qt context …
