Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001] The present disclosure relates to the field of communications and, in particular, to a text message playing method, a terminal and a computer-readable storage medium.

BACKGROUND



[0002] With the continuous development of communications and electronic technologies, a terminal with a communication function has increasingly wider applications in people's lives. The terminal has more and more functions, such as answering calls, making calls, sending and receiving text messages, and surfing the Internet. Compared with a call function of a mobile phone, a text message function of the mobile phone has the advantages of convenience, privacy and economy. Even if a mobile phone of the other user is turned off, a text message of the mobile phone will be delivered as usual. As a preferred information dissemination means, the text message has constructed a new way of interpersonal communications, and thus the mobile phone has become an indispensable communication tool in people's daily lives.

[0003] In the related art, after the mobile phone receives the text message, the mobile phone will ring the text message to prompt the user to check the text message in time; after hearing a ring tone of the text message, the user enters a text message reading mode of the mobile phone through a touch screen operation to read content of the received text message. However, an existing manner for acquiring the received text message will cause inconvenience to the user. For example, for an elderly or illiterate person who is unfamiliar with operations of the mobile phone, the content of the text messages cannot be learned. Although some mobile phones may convert the content of the text message into a voice to be played by an operation of the user, this operation is more tedious and will still cause inconvenience to a user who is unfamiliar with an operation process of the mobile phone.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION



[0054] Technical solutions in embodiments of the present disclosure will be described below clearly and completely in conjunction with the drawings in the embodiments of the present disclosure.

[0055] An embodiment of the present disclosure provides a text message playing method. As shown in FIG. 1, the method may include steps described below.

[0056] In step 101, when a text message is received, an incoming call interface is displayed.

[0057] The incoming call interface includes a control function region which is used for controlling whether to play the text message. For example, "answer" and "hang-up" options on the incoming call interface are the control function region.

[0058] The text message playing method provided by the embodiment of the present disclosure may be executed by a terminal, and specifically may be a text message application carried by the terminal itself or may be a third-party application installed on the terminal.

[0059] The incoming call interface may include a name, a phone number, an image identifier, an answer option, a hang-up option, etc., which is not limited in the embodiment of the present disclosure.

[0060] For example, as shown in a diagram of an example of the incoming call interface in FIG. 2, the "answer" and "hang up" options are on the incoming call interface, the name is "Zhang San", the phone number is "181-XXX-XXX-XX", and the image identifier of the user, Zhang San, is displayed on the right of the name and the phone number.

[0061] Specifically, the terminal may prompt, in a form of an incoming call, the user that the text message is received. A prompt that the text message is received may be a ring, a vibration, or the ring and vibration. The prompt may also be other manner for reminding the user of the reception of the text message in the form of the incoming call interface. The prompt is not limited in the embodiment of the present disclosure.

[0062] Furthermore, before the incoming call interface is displayed, the method further includes steps described below.

[0063] A communication identifier of the text message for sending the text message is acquired, a playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message is determined according to pre-stored communication identifiers.

[0064] The communication identifier of the text message may be a phone number, that is, the terminal acquires the phone number that sends the text message.

[0065] The terminal determines the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message according to the pre-stored communication identifiers specifically in implementation manners described below.

[0066] In a possible implementation manner, the terminal determines, from among the pre-stored communication identifiers, a pre-stored communication identifier identical to the communication identifier of the text message and takes a preset playing mode corresponding the pre-stored communication identifier as the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message. Herein, each pre-stored communication identifier among the pre-stored communication identifiers is preset with a preset playing mode corresponding to the each pre-stored communication identifier.

[0067] In a possible implementation manner, when the communication identifier of the text message is different from any one of the pre-stored communication identifiers, the text message is displayed by a text on the incoming call interface.

[0068] In a possible implementation manner, when the communication identifier of the text message is different from any one of the pre-stored communication identifiers, a preset default playing mode is determined as the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message.

[0069] Here, the pre-stored communication identifiers may be understood as the phone numbers stored in an address book of the terminal. The user sets each number in the address book with its corresponding preset playing mode in advance. Specific setting content may include a name, a home address, an image identifier of the user, a greeting, an ending word, a timbre, a font for displaying the text, whether to display the text synchronously, and a user category. For example, as shown in a diagram of a setting example in FIG. 4, the user may set the playing mode used for playing the text message on this interface.

[0070] The playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message may include one or more of a preset timbre, a preset starting voice or a preset ending voice.

[0071] In step 102, a first operation instruction executed on the control function region is received, and the text message is displayed in the preset playing mode.

[0072] The first operation instruction is used for instructing to play the text message.

[0073] Specifically, after the incoming call interface is displayed, it may be determined whether the first operation instruction applied to the control function region of the incoming call interface has been received from the user within a first preset time period, and if the first operation instruction to the control function region has been received within the first preset time, the text message is played in the preset playing mode according to the first operation instruction.

[0074] The first preset time may be 10 seconds, 1 minute, or other time values, which is not limited in the embodiments of the present disclosure.

[0075] Here, the first operation instruction is used for instructing to play the text message. The first operation instruction may be a touch operation instruction or a button operation instruction, and may also be other operation instruction that can control the answer and hang-up options on the incoming call interface, which is not limited in the embodiments of the present disclosure.

[0076] In a possible implementation manner, the step of playing the text message in the preset playing mode includes a step described below.

[0077] The text message is played in the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message according to the first operation instruction.

[0078] In a possible implementation manner, the playing mode includes the preset timbre; and the step of playing the text message in the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message according to the first operation instruction may include that the terminal plays the text message according to the preset timbre.

[0079] In a possible implementation manner, the playing mode includes the preset timbre, the preset starting voice and the preset ending voice; and the step of playing the text message in the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message according to the first operation instruction includes a step described below.

[0080] The terminal plays the preset starting voice, plays the text message according to the preset timbre after the preset starting voice is played, and plays the preset ending voice after the text message is played.

[0081] For example, the starting voice is the greeting, for example, "hello mom!"; the ending voice is the ending word, for example, "bye, let's talk next time!"; the preset timbre may be a dialect, for example, a Sichuan accent, a northeastern accent, etc.

[0082] Furthermore, the method may further includes: displaying the text message on the incoming call interface according to a preset font when the text message is played in the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message according to the first operation instruction.

[0083] Specifically, the method provided by the embodiment of the present disclosure may display the text message by the text on the incoming call interface during the text message is played by a voice, that is, when the text message is played in the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message according to the first operation instruction, the text message is displayed on the incoming call interface according to the preset font.

[0084] Optionally, if the operation instruction to the incoming call interface is not received within the first preset time, the terminal may store the text message.

[0085] Optionally, the method provided by the embodiment of the present disclosure may control a volume for playing the text message by a voice, which may specifically include: in response to receiving a preset control voice when the text message is played in the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message according to the operation instruction, adjusting a playing volume of the text message.

[0086] Specifically, the preset control voice is an instruction voice that is used for controlling the playing volume of the text message, and the instruction voice is recorded and stored by the user in advance. When the text message is played by voice, if the user utters the preset control voice, the terminal may turn up or down the volume for playing the text message.

[0087] The preset control voice may be "hey, hey", "higher", "lower", or other voices. The user may set the voice according to personal habits of the user, and setting content of the preset control voice is not limited in the embodiments of the present disclosure.

[0088] Exemplarily, in the process of playing the text message by voice, if the terminal identifies that the user utters the voice "hey, hey", the terminal determines that the user is likely to be unable to hear the voice clearly and actively turns up the volume so that the user can hear the played text message clearly.

[0089] Furthermore, after the text message is played in the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message according to the first operation instruction, the method further includes steps described below.

[0090] It is prompted, by voice, that the text message has been played, and it is detected within preset time whether voice information is inputted.

[0091] If the inputted voice information is received within the preset time, the voice information is converted into text reply information.

[0092] The text reply information is sent to a terminal corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message.

[0093] Specifically, the method provided by the embodiment of the present disclosure may replay the text message after the text message is played by voice, which specifically includes steps described below. The terminal prompts the user by voice that the text message has been played, and detects within the preset time whether the voice information is inputted. If the terminal receives the inputted voice information within the preset time, the terminal convers the voice information into the text reply information, and sends the text reply information to the terminal corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message.

[0094] Optionally, the incoming call interface further includes a recording function option, and the method further includes steps described below.

[0095] After the text message has been played, a second operation instruction to the recording function option is received, a record of a voice signal is acquired in response to the second operation instruction, the voice signal is converted into the text reply information, and the text reply information is sent to the terminal corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message.

[0096] The text message playing method provided by the embodiment of the present disclosure can remind the receipt of the text message via the incoming call interface, play the content of the text message in the playing mode, smartly select the timbre according to marks of different communication identifiers, for example, a male voice, a female voice, etc. to gain the humanized and diversified playing style, and improve user experience through a simple and convenient operation.

[0097] An embodiment of the present disclosure provides a text message playing method. As shown in FIG. 3, the method may include steps described below.

[0098] In step 201, when a text message is received, a communication identifier of the sending of the text message is acquired.

[0099] The text message playing method provided by the embodiment of the present disclosure may be executed by a terminal. Specifically the execution object of the text message playing method may be a text message application carried by the terminal itself or a third-party application installed on the terminal.

[0100] The communication identifier of the text message may be a phone number, that is, the terminal acquires the phone number for sending the text message.

[0101] In step 202, a pre-stored communication identifier identical to the communication identifier of the text message is determined from among pre-stored communication identifiers, and a preset playing mode corresponding the pre-stored communication identifier is taken as a playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message.

[0102] Each pre-stored communication identifier among the pre-stored communication identifiers is preset with a preset playing mode corresponding to the each pre-stored communication identifier.

[0103] Here, the pre-stored communication identifiers may be understood as phone numbers stored in an address book of the terminal. A user presets a corresponding preset playing mode for each number in the address book. Specific setting content may include a name, a home address, an image identifier of the user, a greeting, an ending word, a timbre, a font for displaying a text, whether to display the text synchronously, and a user category. For example, as shown in a diagram of a setting example in FIG. 4, the user may set the playing mode used for playing the text message on this interface.

[0104] The greeting and the ending word may be a voice recorded by the user or may be a downloaded synthetic voice, which is not limited in the embodiments of the present disclosure. The image identifier of the user may be a photo, selected from an album, or acquired from the address book, which is not limited in the embodiments of the present disclosure. A size of the font for displaying the text may be set, and a type of the display font may also be set.

[0105] Here, the greeting is a starting voice, for example, "hello mom!"; the ending word is an ending voice, for example, "bye, let's talk next time! "; the timbre may be a dialect, for example, a Sichuan accent, a northeastern accent, etc.

[0106] Exemplarily, the user may group people in the address book. Only text messages from families or close friends may be displayed as incoming calls, and a text message from an ordinary telephone number is not displayed as the incoming call.

[0107] Optionally, in response to determining that the communication identifier of the text message is different from any one of the pre-stored communication identifiers, a preset default playing mode is determined as the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message, or the terminal displays the text message by the text on the incoming call interface.

[0108] Here, the preset default playing mode may be a playing mode preset by the user for a strange number that is not in the address book.

[0109] Specifically, when the phone number that sends the text message is not in the address book, that is, the phone number that sends the text message is a strange number, the text message may be played in the preset playing mode corresponding to the strange number, and the text message may also be displayed directly. A specific selection may be set by the user according to personal preferences, which is not limited in the embodiments of the present disclosure.

[0110] In step 203, the incoming call interface is displayed.

[0111] Here, the incoming call interface includes a control function region which is used for controlling whether to play the text message.

[0112] The incoming call interface may include the name, the phone number, the image identifier, an answer option, a hang-up option, etc., which is not limited in the embodiments of the present disclosure. For example, the incoming call interface is shown in FIG. 2.

[0113] Specifically, the user is reminded via the incoming call interface that the text message is received. A prompt for the reception of the text message may be a ring, a vibration, or the ring and the vibration, and may also be other manner for reminding the user that the text message is received, which is not limited in the embodiment of the present disclosure.

[0114] In step 204, if a first operation instruction on the control function region is received within first preset time, the text message is played in the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message according to the first operation instruction.

[0115] The first preset time may be 10 seconds, 1 minute, or other time values, which is not limited in the embodiments of the present disclosure.

[0116] Here, the first operation instruction is used for instructing to play the text message. The first operation instruction may be a touch operation instruction or a button operation instruction, and may also be another operation instruction that can control the incoming call interface, which is not limited in the embodiments of the present disclosure.

[0117] Optionally, the method may further implement a function of displaying the text message synchronously, which may specifically include: displaying the text message on the incoming call interface in a preset font when the text message is played in the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message according to the first operation instruction.

[0118] Optionally, the method provided by the embodiment of the present disclosure may control the volume for playing the text message by voice, which may specifically include: in response to receiving a preset control voice when the text message is played in the playing mode corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message according to the operation instruction, adjusting a playing volume of the text message.

[0119] Specifically, the preset control voice is an instruction voice that is used for controlling the playing volume of the text message, and the instruction voice is recorded and stored by the user in advance. When the text message is played by voice, if the user utters the preset control voice, the terminal may turn up or down the volume for playing the text message, that is, the terminal may smartly change the playing volume according to a usage environment and a practical usage manner of the user.

[0120] The preset control voice may be "hey, hey", "higher", "lower", or other voices. The user may set the voice according to personal habits of the user, and setting content of the preset control voice is not limited in the embodiments of the present disclosure.

[0121] Exemplarily, in the process of playing the text message by voice, if the terminal identifies that the user utters the voice "hey, hey", the terminal determines that the user is likely to be unable to hear the voice clearly and actively turns up the volume so that the user can hear the played text message clearly.

[0122] After the text message has been played, the method may further implement a function of replying to the text message, which specifically includes steps described below.

[0123] In step 205, it is prompted by voice that the text message has been played, and it is detected within preset time whether voice information is inputted.

[0124] The preset time may be 5 seconds, 20 seconds, or other time values, which is not limited in the embodiments of the present disclosure.

[0125] Here, the voice information may be a voice of the user for replying to the text message. As shown in FIG. 5, the user expresses reply content by voice, and the terminal converts the voice into the text.

[0126] In step 206, if the inputted voice information is received within the preset time, the voice information is converted into text reply information.

[0127] In step 207, the text reply information is sent to a terminal corresponding to the communication identifier of the text message.

[0128] Specifically, a voice reply is allowed during or after the content of the text message is played, and a voice recognition function is used for converting the voice into the text by a voice recognition technology. On an appropriate occasion, the content of the text message is replied to the sender. In this way, user experience is improved, and the text message communication problem of many illiterate or elderly people is solved.

[0129] The communication identifier of the text message may be the phone number, that is, the terminal sends the text reply information to a mobile phone terminal of the phone number that sends the text message.
