I hate that Gmaps uses its own voice. Caitlin is a classy, not overstated nor particularly localized accent. She's also a most gender-flexible voice, or handles menopause gracefully, and can speed up with clarity. If you use tts a lot, this is an excellent English voice to use. Irish lends to clear consonants, and differentiates vowels (if you can adjust to them).
My New Favorite TTS Caitlin is an awesome voice! I absolutely love her accent. You're literally hearing something that sounds as good as real life speech. Minor hiccups in pronouncing certain words. But her cadence is fantastic. William U.K. is now my 2nd favorite. Anyone else recommends another Cereproc TTS, I'm all ears.
No longer supported For some reason it no longer works on my Galaxy Note 4 with marshmallow. I get an error message saying not supported in the voice to text settings.
Its ok, needs improvement Won't handle large text files at all, just does nothing. Needs finer adjustment in the normal range, nobody wants or needs super slow/super fast, nor super low/high pitch
Really good voice. Almost like IVONA. But it doesn't react to exclamation or question marks... Other than that it's amazing.
It seems I missed it when looking through play market for a great TTS a couple of years ago - or maybe 'Caitlin' hadn't been here yet, back then - which is a shame, because it's awesome. It sounds natural and young, a great "universal" voice that suits pretty much anything: reading articles and fiction, using Google Now and map navigation and so on. 'Caitlin' is up there with 'Heather' on the sheer "pleasant to listen to"-meter, and is actually a bit better balanced (though the Scottish TTS still remains my favorite among Cereproc's stuff). As usual with Cereproc voices, I prefer to set it for a bit faster (1.05 - 1.15 of the initial speed) reading, and may fiddle with the pitch every now and then; but that's just personal preferences. Great job, great voice, you guys have made another awesome TTS that could've easily cost five times more, and would've still been worth the price. As it is, I'm glad to spend 1.5$ for quality like that (seriously, thank you for making it so affordable), easily one of my better play market purchases.
