Would like to be able to change Text-to-Speech voice to British English instead of American English. I do this change on my phone in accessibility settings however jbv1 does not honor it and only follows set American voice.

Also, I would LOVE if we can get the Ka alert tone from the escort passport x50 detectors. Classic.

The voice is controlled by your device's TTS engine settings, usually in Accessibility settings. Be sure you're using the Google TTS engine, then choose one of the English (UK) voices.

Did you try the Redline tone? I don't know if it gets any better than that one.

Yes, google tts is enable and i set it to english united kingdom but still jbv1 is using the american english. I have android 9.

I do like the redline one but the x50 is sort of a teenage year thing leftover. Lol. No big deal.

Hmm, so it is. I'll look into that, and thanks for letting me know.

Porky rules on Ka. You just can't miss that alert.

Just curious, why do you recommend Google TTS? (vs. Samsung TTS which is the default on mine)
The Samsung TTS voice is very robotic, while the Google TTS voice is much more human (the default one anyway).
