This is my favorite Scottish TTS voice of all time!! I have worked with Cereproc to get it working with TalkBack. Initially the voice froze, so I reported this to Cereproc, and it was fixed! I am blind and must use synthetic speech every day, to complete every task on my phone. Not only am I immensely pleased with the voice, but I am quite pleased with Cereproc!! And, the reason the voice does not work with navigation anymore, is because Google does not allow us to use any voices, other than theirs, anymore, for navigation purposes.
The best sounding tts voice to my ear. Sadly, even when disabling the Google engine, you still won't get Heather speaking most of the time. Just occasionally a sentence will break through... Edit 2017: still doesn't work with Google navigation 👿. I've had this some time now, but still no progress.
Not recommended. Worse than useless. Attempting to do ANYTHING by pressing on buttons fails. Nada, kaput. Don't waste your money. I had hoped to use it for reading books, that would have been impossible.
The very best voice there is although an update in early 2016 made it sound less Scottish and more robotic. The latest update makes it so I can't use it for Google maps or S Voice. Sad.
Not as realistic as Caitlin, but damn her voice is so soothing that I love listening to it. Definitely glad to use this instead of the default google TTS though it's unfortunate that I can't change the voice on default Google apps.
I love Heather. I use it for years with utter! And was happy. A friend of mine showed me what Google now can do and I was hooked.... BUT Google now refuses to use Heather!!! I have an S7 why cannot I use Heather as TTS for Google? I'm I missing something? I have changed everything on my settings.... pls help
