How can i show/Hide imageView in recyclerView as TTS(text to speech) plays for all the available list items, one by one!

Activity method -This method is called r with Loop(not working, no bugs but simply do not give my expected output

    int position=0;
    public void convertTextToSpeech() {
        Multiples multiples1=items.get(position);
        for (Multiples item : items) {

            text = item.first + "  " + item.getSecond() + " Za " + item.getResult() + ".";
            tts.speak(text, TextToSpeech.QUEUE_ADD, null);
            boolean speakingEnd = tts.isSpeaking();

            if (speakingEnd) {
                Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Speaking...."+position, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
                multiples1.setImage_show(true);
                mAdapter.notifyItemChanged(position);
            } else {
                Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Done...."+position, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            }
            position++;
        }
    }

The complete code is below for more understanding,

First, i displayed all items in recyclerView. Afterward, I am calling the displayed item in a method having for loop to TTS play each rows(list item). The problem i am facing now is the imageView is not displaying as each recyclerView item are being read by TTS.

Expected output is whenever TTS plays for each row item textView, An imageView(#image1) should show simultaneously




UPDATED TRIED CODE

DisplayActivityResultAdapter.java

    ......
    .......
    int position = 0;
    public void convertTextToSpeech() {
        Multiples multiples1=items.get(position);
        for (Multiples item : items) {
            text = item.first + "  " + item.getSecond() + " Za " + item.getResult() + ".";
            tts.speak(text, TextToSpeech.QUEUE_ADD, null);
            boolean speakingEnd = tts.isSpeaking();

            // Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Speaking...."+position, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
           // multiples1.setImage_show(true);
            //  mAdapter.notifyItemChanged(position);
           // Log.i("values","------------------------------------------Row value-"+item.getFirst()+" X "+item.getSecond()+", Position="+position);
             //------------------------
            MyAdapter m= (MyAdapter)  mAdapter;
            m.updateItem(item,position);
            position++;
        }
    }
}

MyAdapter.java

    .....
    .....
    // Replace the contents of a view (invoked by the layout manager)
    @Override
    public void onBindViewHolder(MyViewHolder holder, int position) {
        // - get element from your dataset at this position
        // - replace the contents of the view with that element

        if (holder instanceof MyAdapter.MyViewHolder) {
            final MyAdapter.MyViewHolder view = (MyAdapter.MyViewHolder) holder;
            Multiples p = items.get(position);
            view.name.setText(p.first + " X " + p.getSecond() + "= "+p.getResult());

            if(position>0) {
                if (p.image_show) {
                    view.image1.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
                    view.image.setVisibility(View.INVISIBLE);
                } else {
                    view.image1.setVisibility(View.INVISIBLE);
                    view.image.setVisibility(View.VISIBLE);
                }
            }
        }
    }


    public void updateItem(Multiples newItem, int pos) {
        Log.i("values","-----In updateItem Log----Row value-"+newItem.getFirst()+" X "+newItem.getSecond()+", Position="+pos);
        items.set(pos, newItem); //update passed value in your adapter's data structure
        Log.e("msg","-----items.get(pos)------------->"+items.get(pos).getFirst()+" X " +items.get(pos).getSecond());

        notifyItemChanged(pos,newItem);
    }

    // Return the size of your dataset (invoked by the layout manager)
    @Override
    public int getItemCount() {
        return items.size();
    }
}

You main fail is absence of listener for TTS. Without it you don't know when you should update your RecyclerView. Listener can looks like this:

class MyListener extends UtteranceProgressListener {
        @Override
        public void onStart(String utteranceId) {
            int currentIndex = Integer.parseInt(utteranceId);
            mMainAdapter.setCurrentPosition(currentIndex);
            handler.post(new Runnable() {
                @Override
                public void run() {
                    mMainAdapter.notifyDataSetChanged();
                }
            });
        }

        @Override
        public void onDone(String utteranceId) {
            int currentIndex = Integer.parseInt(utteranceId);
            mMainAdapter.setCurrentPosition(-1);
            handler.post(new Runnable() {
                @Override
                public void run() {
                    mMainAdapter.notifyDataSetChanged();
                }
            });
            if (currentIndex < data.size() - 1) {
                playSound(currentIndex + 1);
            }
        }

        @Override
        public void onError(String utteranceId) {
        }
    }

I've created a test project to show how it can be implemented. Here you can see how it works. Here is my github repository.

Put the below code snippet inside your Adapter in OnBindViewHolder

        text = item.first + "  " + item.getSecond() + " Za " + item.getResult() + ".";
        tts.speak(text, TextToSpeech.QUEUE_ADD, null);
        boolean speakingEnd = tts.isSpeaking();


        if(speakingEnd){
            Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Speaking...."+position, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            multiples1.setImage_show(true);
            mAdapter.notifyItemChanged(position);

        } else {
            Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Done...."+position, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
        }

May this help Thanks.

Please check this out. In your code, you are missed UtteranceProgressListener. You have to add UtteranceProgressListener which will give you speech completion listener events. Also, you will need utteranceID which will be passed to tts.speak() that helps you to identify the speech if you need it. Take a variable as,

String utterId = "";

then in your TextToSpeech onInit before calling convertTextToSpeech register this listener to your tts.

...
else{
 tts.setOnUtteranceProgressListener(new UtteranceProgressListener() {
                                    @Override
                                    public void onStart(String utteranceId) {

                                    }

                                    @Override
                                    public void onDone(String utteranceId) {
                                        convertTextToSpeech(position);
                                    }

                                    @Override
                                    public void onError(String utteranceId) {

                                    }
                                });
                                convertTextToSpeech(0);
}

Initially, 0 is passed to convertTextToSpeech as it is the first time call. Here I've made some changes to the convertTextToSpeech. In this, I've removed the loop you were using earlier instead, it will be a recursive function.

 public void convertTextToSpeech(int pos) {
        if (pos >= items.size()) return;
        position = pos;
        final Multiples multiples = items.get(position);

        text = multiples.first + "  " + multiples.getSecond() + " Za " + multiples.getResult() + ".";

        utterId = (new Random().nextInt() % 9999999) + ""; // "" is String force

        if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.LOLLIPOP) {
            Bundle params = new Bundle();
            params.putString(TextToSpeech.Engine.KEY_PARAM_UTTERANCE_ID, utterId);

            tts.speak(text, TextToSpeech.QUEUE_FLUSH, params, utterId);
        } else {
            HashMap<String, String> params = new HashMap<>();
            params.put(TextToSpeech.Engine.KEY_PARAM_UTTERANCE_ID, utterId);

            tts.speak(text, TextToSpeech.QUEUE_FLUSH, params);
        }

        runOnUiThread(new Runnable() {
            @Override
            public void run() {
                MyAdapter m = (MyAdapter) mAdapter;
                multiples.setImage_show(true);
                m.updateItem(multiples, position);
                position++;
            }
        });

    }

As you can see the tts.speak() is deprecated you should use the new one to avoid issues in the latest android os.

In your MyAdapter, you have to set previous item image_show to false.

public void updateItem(Multiples newItem, int pos) {
    if (pos > 0) {
        items.get(pos - 1).setImage_show(false);
    }
    Log.i("values", "-----In updateItem Log----Row value-" + newItem.getFirst() + " X " + newItem.getSecond() + ", Position=" + pos);
    items.set(pos, newItem); //update passed value in your adapter's data structure
    Log.e("msg", "-----items.get(pos)------------->" + items.get(pos).getFirst() + " X " + items.get(pos).getSecond());

    notifyDataSetChanged();
}
