    Voice Notifications

    Hello, I would like to make a notification both available on the screen and by a voice message.
    I was reading some tutorial and tried to make it work, but really got stacked

    I have 2 classes: one gets location information and sends it to the server; second - voice class to implement voice alerting.

    Voice.java looks like this:
    import java.util.Locale;
    import android.app.Activity;
    import android.speech.tts.TextToSpeech;
    import android.util.Log;
    import android.os.Bundle;
    publicclass Voice extends Activity implements
    TextToSpeech.OnInitListener {
    //Called when the activity is first created
    private TextToSpeech tts;
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    tts = new TextToSpeech(this, this);
    public void onDestroy() {
    // shutdown tts
    if (tts != null) {
    public void onInit(int status) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    public void speakOut(String text) {
    tts.speak(text, TextToSpeech.QUEUE_FLUSH, null);
    When I am trying to access speakOut from my first class:
    String waitingtext = "Waiting for location";
    But it looks like I am doing something completely wrong. Eclipse says that I have to change speakOut to a static method…

    What I am thinking about is that I want to create a class that will manage my voice notifications (not only this one, but any other alerts/errors that occur: they should be logged, showed on the screen and made as a voice announcement).
