Hi,

I saw that you can change the voice in Settings>Voice Settings. Default is “Samantha” (in quotes). What are the other options.

For Siri I use the British Female. But I am assuming the fabulous V1Driver (yes I love the app) uses the text to speech from Settings>General>Accessibility>Voices.

How do I choose the English (UK) Siri female instead of English (US) Samantha.

Thanks in advance.

Good question.

Turn the tips back on. The tip will show you what the options are.

Sorry, I didn’t follow your response. But just in case here is a picuture showing my Tip on that control. Those are all the voices loaded on my phone. Yours may be different.

Mine shows Aeron, Fred, Nicky and Samantha are my choices.

But notice the list above says Nicky is available but the system settings below says Nicky is not downloaded to the phone.

I’m not sure why it does this. Is that your question?

Sorry for any misunderstand, I was typing on my phone.

So when I tap on “Text to speech voice” it doesn’t give me a tip. I am not sure why. I have multiple voices installed.

Ah! Restarted the app. Now I have some options. Oddly it gives me one I don’t have installed and I don’t even see an Aaron voice.

I don’t know why it doesn’t match. I query the system for the voices available and that’s what it returns. Try the ones in the Tip list as well as what you think you might want from the System settings and see if any give the desired result.

I’d appreciate you sharing what you find.

Thanks.

Still getting the same thing. After installing the Samantha (enhanced) it is now an option. However, it is showing ones I don’t have installed.

Siri Female (United Kingdom) which is installed and chosen as my voice for accessibility speech, doesn’t show in the tips. When I type it in it still gives me Samanth’s voice.

Is it possible to set it up as a drop down instead of typing the voice name in? Not sure if that would make it work.

Thanks for making a great app. I love it! Also thanks for being such a responsive and responsible developer. Can’t wait for the next update.
