Voice choice

Asked by Jon of Kent on 2015-12-01

Hello,

This is a superb app! And improving so quickly. May I make a suggestion, that I see someone else has - that you detach the language of the voice from the main language of the phone? And make it possible to choose from inside the app?

I have another suggestion... I was using the app today and I find the American voice ever so hard to hear, somehow. Do I remember that, when the app was new, you had an English English voice (female)? If so, can she be reinstated, at least for those of us with our phones set to UK English?

If not - I can perhaps help you with an English English voice, if you were prepared to make that available - I've done some voice-over work in the past.

Jon

Hi Jonathan! Thanks :)

About your suggestions, I'm so sorry, but:

As I want the application so simple as possible, the Settings will be the more easy and clear possible, then I'll not add a language option.

I'm really proud of the current (american) English voice. There is not voices for different English, as not voice for differents Spanish...

But, FYI I would like to allow a voice repository, then you could even try different voices for same language.

A hug and thank you a lot for your feedback :)

Thank you for the quick reply and the hug :-)

Sorry for criticising something you're proud of! Perhaps I'd just better get a hearing aid.

I hope to have the repo soon and offer any language and voices :D
And I appreciate the feedback |o/ Really

Hi there.
I was about to say that I could record some voices in Catalan and get someone in Spanish. Open source and free :) but I guess it's a bit early...

Anyway, let me know if I can help!

Hi Joan!
It would be great to have voices in Catalan! In Spanish there are
already the voices.
You should reply these voices:
