Question What happened with ACAPELLA for the M92???

There was supposed to be an update with acapella included for the m92... its been a long time and its not there...


Would we be able to buy it or something??
Will there be SPANISH support for the acapella software in m92??

I guess it got shelved. The M92 is pretty old now and the M96 is gonna be released soon so I guess Onyx have stopped developing the M92 firmware

M92 old? Seriously? And how is the "new" M96 fairing from a hardware standpoint? It's 99.99% the same, with some just twists (upped to cope with the resource-hungry Android, but not more than that).

Hi,
actually we are quite few , who takes part in development of Onyx Boox extensions. It was my own wish and decision to extend the functionality of Onyx Boox firmware to Acapela TTS. Russian Onyx client, who sells by far more Onyx products in Russia, than we internationally do, did not support it, since their devices have no audio output. Polish distributor is bounded to Ivona. Since the time, as I have published my video review with first working on M92 Acapela TTS on Youtube, only few people have shown interest for it . It looks like I were wrong with my expectations and there are indeed not as many users, who needs that additional TTS functionality urgently.

In last months we have got additionally huge amount of work on software for Onyx Android successors and as result the complete devteam eventually has been moved to this task. They are working really hard to get reliable, stable and feature-rich software. On average we are busy with our work up to 16 hours daily. This is also the reason we are much less active in forums in last months - just permanent lack of time .

Therefore executives of Onyx decided currently to postpone development of Acapela TTS in Linux devices and focus on Android development (even though the Acapela TTS licence and development for Linux has already caused over $15k on costs). Once the most important tasks of Android version of Onyx software are finished (should happen quite soon), we can continue to handle most important open Onyx Linux version tasks.

Good news is - installation of TTS apps (like Acapela) on Onyx Android devices is very easy and users can do it yourselves. I have tried the installation and many different languages and voices - worked just fine.

In my opinion currently is more important to offer good EInk adapted Android apps for professional reading of and working with different PDF documents. Such tasks like re-flow of scanned documents and convenient annotation tools are just more weightier priorities by our customers.

Well, the e-reader scene doesn't move very fast but it's two years old (if I'm not mistaken) and Onyx already have developed new models like the M96. And, most importantly, they have moved from Linux based software to Android based, and so it's logical that the software for the new devices takes priority compared to the older one's.
I have a M92 myself and of course I'd like its software being developed further but we gotta be realsitic and know that's not likely to happen

EDIT: I've just read Booxtor's post that says that once Android's software largest problems are solved, development for Linux based devices will continue. I'm looking forward to it!

I also remember someone (most likely Cheng) saying it will be possible for M92 users to install Android on their devices as well. Anyone knows if that is still up? I own a M92, and although i like the new pdf reader, i'll also enjoy Android on my M92 and all possibilities that comes with it.

That's a shame.

But perhaps we can convince Booxtor to release the build that he used in the video?

I.e. Alpha code and see if we can achieve something with an open source effort?

Booxtor can you release the code?
