Word100 Library


A simple library for The "100+ Word" Arduino Audio Shield! Speak Arduino, Speak!
by Patrick Thomas Mitchell


NEW Way: This library is now included in the Arduino Library manager, it's recommended to use the manager and look for Word100. This will let you receive updates quickly.

OLD Way: Remove the -master from the file name, unzip and move folder to your Arduino library folder.


Library version 1.0 Sept 23, 2017 by LeRoy Miller
Library version 1.5 Mar 6, 2018 Updated to work with the Little Buddy Talker made by Patrick Thomas Mitchell
Mar 16 Updated to Arduino 1.5 Library Specs. Change version numbers to Semantic versioning. V1.5 now becomes v2.1.0 since it was a major change at the time.
See Information_README.txt for minor changes.
Library version 3.0.0 - Mar 19, 2018 Major change after finding some issues with LBT and 100+ Word Shield with HAM chip.
New version has the three variations split into three different libraries, see below for more information.
Version 4.0.0 - Apr 13, 2018 - All words are now UPPERCASE and use a underscore. This fixes a problem I found with some other libraries.
Version 5.0.0 - May 5, 2018 - Big Buddy Talker added with over 1000+ words
Version 5.0.8 - Feb 26, 2019 - Added example for the Arduino E-Z Comms Shield for the LBT chip.
v5.1.0 - Mar 22, 2019 added support for softwareSPI - allows the 100+ Word Shield and E-Z Comms shield to work with the Leonardo and MEGA2560 Requires: The softwareSPI library by RevPhil


The library attempts to use the words from the word list provided by Patrick Thomas Mitchell. For the most part this is accomplished.
See the Information_README.txt file for specifics on some of the words.

include the library
#include "Word100.h"; //for the 100+ Word Shield with standard chip
#include "Word100Ham.h"; //for the 100+ Word Shield with Ham chip
#include "Word100LBT.h"; //for the LBT (Little Buddy Talker)
#include "Word100BBT.h"; //for the BBT (Big Buddy Talker)
invoke the class for your device:
Word100 Word100(10);
or for the custom ham radio chip:
Word100ham Word100(10);
For Little Buddy Talker (LBT) invoke:
Word100lbt Word100(10);
For Big Buddy Talker (BBT) invoke:
Word100bbt Word100(7,8,9,10);
in setup begin the class:
say your word - examples show how to do this from an array, but...

See Information_README.txt file for more information on the specifics of some of
the words used in this library.
