    Anyone have custom Alert Sounds to share? Or what kind of file are they? Can they be made from a sound file like an MP3?

    Thanks any help would be appreciated. :)

    A couple of custom alerts

    I've been using a text-to-speech program called, TextAloud, to create my custom mp3's & a website to convert them to the ogg format, which TomTom likes.

    I've attached a zip with a couple of examples (both in a British female voice): "Slowdown" to remind me when I'm speeding, and "Domino's Ahead" for my night job.

    Unfortunately, the volume is a bit softer than I'd like, but I don't have much control over the mp3-to-ogg portion.

    R?

    There is a little program called Audacity that allows you to increase the volume of a sound file. (As well as other things). It is freeware, just google it.

    Cheers,
