Please fix Lollipop asap, and compile for Intel processor too. Big trouble for other apps that use TTS - we get blamed for the Lollipop/ART runtime bug and suffer from bad ratings too. Please fix, best fix it today. Please also compile IVONA voices for Intel processors - would be a big help in debugging on VM emulators. Thanks!
Years ahead of Google and Samsung Don't bother with Google or Samsung's TTS engines, you'll walk away thinking TTS is junk. IVONA TTS is as real as it gets.
Got the runaround After installing I was asked to pick and install a language. Then It said I had to go back and install the HQ version of the IVONA app. After that installed I was once again asked to install the language app again. Finally after going back and forth and with a couple of different icons on my screen I was able to try out the app. It was not good. The voice was no better than the @Voice Aloud Reader-Read Aloud app that I already had on my phone. In fact the voice from @Voice Aloud sounded just a little bit better.
I love it! Works with my moon reader. But please correct the word No. Kendra reads it as 'number'. I use it everyday to listen to novels. And in novels, there are lots of No. Really annoying. Like when a character asks 'what's your answer?' and the other character will answer 'Number.' like whaaat? Number? Oh! You mean No. :/
Good Kendra drags some of her words out as though she has a speech impediment, or like a southerner does.
