Not supported on Android 6 Its likely should have supported Android 6...but intact it fails to do so...I will rate it 5 if it starts supporting MM
I use it sometimes, when grown bored with the IVONA's Amy, or my other TTS by Cereproc. It has good intonations and a rather interesting accent, which can come across as a bit arrogant -- but I always imagine a sort of news-weather-lady to read me stuff. Makes me smile. The only problem is on the technical side: in stock Android settings and in many TTS-supporting apps, "Gwyneth" is marked as "English (United Kingdom)" - the same as IVONA's Amy - and not as "English (Welch)". So if you have them both installed, and then try to make "Gwyneth" your default TTS, or for example listen to it read a saved article in Pocket, you'll find out that you can't. You'll only be able to pick "English (UK)" in the system/app's settings. And by default it's always 'Amy' (you can't manually switch between installed British IVONA voices). Now, I mostly use it in Voice Read Aloud which allows to choose between the two, so it's not much of an issue for me. But that imitation is there and it can be annoying for other users, so you should probably look into it.
Works great in Kit Kat and now lollipop too Great work Ivona team everything works great now ! Just had the upgrade to lollipop and now the app will not work. It just stutters. I hope this can be sorted out with an update soon as I have been using this for the past few years since it came out and it is the best on the market.
GOOD, aside from poor handling of hyphens Tried for reading bibles. Used Gwyneth and surprised by how well it sounds. Especially glad it did not read hyphens out loud (!!!). A lot of bibles have "-- hyphenated wording --" and it did not speak hyphen, or hyphen-hyphen, whenever it hit these ... like other TTS apps I've tried (really annoying). However, it reads as if the hyphens were not there, reducing understandability and context. It should pause, as it does for commas, with perhaps a little emphasis. Hope they fix this, then five stars.
Really awesome Does well with most every task except foreign names. Surprisingly expressive, tasteful and appropriate.
OK but not enough time before loosing refund option. OK but would rather not use this. Refund option is too quick to vanish as you need more time than is allocated to try and test voices with different apps. Not this IVONA other one!
