Any particular reason why the speech engine switches from switches from English United States to something like English United Kingdom? Usually turning off talk back, and then turning it back on helps, or going into the text to speech settings fixes it. But it's only temporary. Until I go into something like Wikipedia, or Chrome. It's using the default system language.

Hello! Thanks for the great work. I am giving it 4 stars because of speed limit issues. I am using android 10 on samsung voice assistant. I have installed the former version, and then updated version. now the speed for me is very slow, compared to what it was in the previous version. now in the espeak settings the speed is set at 450 wpm and in general tts settings the speed is at 100%. now, this should be blazingly fast right? It is the maximum speed of espeak, but no. It is very very slow. Could you please take a look in this and fix this as soon as possible, because it is really annoying to listen to this robotic voice on slow speeds. Other everything is good. Hope it will be fixed soon. Thanks in advance.

It is the only way to get icelandic and irish voices on android that I know of... . I think that many people don't understand what this app is for. It is for fast development of lightweight implementations of multiple languages. The way that it was developed makes it comprehensible at very high speeds. If you want a tts voice for unusual languages or if you want to listen at high speeds this is the app for you.
