The British English male voice is very pleasant to listen to for extended periods. I have him read me novels on the drive to work. There are just a few niggles with words with the same spelling that can be pronounced in different ways, such as live, and wind, bows. With the latter two Google always picks the non-nautical pronunciation, which is disconcerting in the sea stories I'm currently listening to. It would be nice if the speech engine could adapt the pronunciation to match the context.
The voices have finally begun to match the quality of the old U.K. English voices, and having masculine voice options finally makes it enjoyable to have a phone talk back to me. I don't understand why these voices are separate from the voice used by Google Assistant, but since that also has a masculine option finally, all is well as far as I'm concerned.
I am having an issue with the application ! It is talking to me too fast for the past couple of times that I have used it. It's annoying. Can you please fix this or tell me how ? Thanks
Best so far. Microsoft out of competition with no windows software nearby. How stupid cortana feels when Windows interpret something funny. Similar is story of ubuntu.Linux community not at all serious about this business leaves Google in very good position. But than there is still lots of improvement required.
Sudden problem with S5 SINCE LAST UPDATE. WHEN I SPEAK AFTER PRESSING THE MIC KEY TEXT TO SPEECH FAILS TO HEAR ANYTHING AND HAS NO AFFECT AND DOESN'T TYPE ANYTHING. I HAVE TO LEAVE THE APP I'M IN AND MINIMIZE IT AND HIT GOOGLE AND SAY SOMETHING AND IT STARTS WORKING AGAIN FOR LIKE A MINUTE AND THE TEXT TO SPEECH DOESN'T DETECT SOUND AGAIN. PLEASE FIX THIS IT'S SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE UPDATE! ANYONE HAVE THIS ISSUE GOING ON WITH SAMSUNG PHONE? GALAXY S5. Also we need a manual voice training option for common words. Different accents. When I say "in" it types and every time and it's really frustrating especially when I depend on it to work atleast 80% accurate!
I've got a problem with Google translate. I use the male voicebut when i press GTTS it automatically download the female voice and set it as a default
