Modifying Altec Lancings "Life Jacket 2" Waterproof portable speaker.
It lets you charge your phone while either using Bluetooth or direct aux input.
Now there's only one problem/annoyance. Every time you power on/off the device and sync to Bluetooth, this voice confirmation plays this audio file that's much longer than it needs to be.
"Powering on! Welcome to Altec Lansing"
when Bluetooth kicks on
"You are now paired! Enjoy!"
when you turn off
Anyway, I was already planning on modding it by adding an amplifier to the Line In, since its much louder when a PC is connected vs a phone.
I may also add more 18650's but with 15 hour battery life its not necessary. Unless I plan on turning it into a charging hub for all my co-workers phones or something.
Anyway, I am here to try to get some help on disabling the voice, its only really a problem because on max volume the voice is WAYY too loud and usually startles people.
Here's a review video that shows all the features. Amazingly I can't find a Youtube video of the Voice Confirmation.
Here's the useless manual.
I Already emailed Altec Lansing to see if there's anyway to disable the voice.
I have several images for you to see. I can grab more if necessary.
Alternatively, would I be able to just replace the entire board with another one?
Such as, an amplifier, USB charger, 18650 charger, and some hacked up Bluetooth headset (with no voice-confirmation)
I ask because I rather like the case for its shock resistance capability, and the control buttons are removable so adding new controls and switches would be easy.
