I used this for a few years... but the British Google voice is better quality now than SVOX even if Victoria has a more unique voice. Also doesn't always work and switches back and forth with Google TTS regardless of phone settings. I used this primarily with Google Maps and I'm not rooting to make SVOX work right. If they improve, enhance and update their product then I'd be happy to switch back to them again.
I just wanted you to know how much I miss this app. It worked on my 2 yr old Moto G until it cracked and wouldn't start. Now I've got 3 phones to see if it will work on them. I'm trying to get the phone I had to see if it will work. Please phase. Can't you make her work on new systems? I'd pay for her again. She was unique. Nothing sounds the same at all. I miss it all day every day.
Not too happy When using this app there are times when there are two distinct different voices taking turns to provide navigation directions (this is not every tinge though). The main voice sounds tinny compared to Pico tts, and can be difficult to hear over road noise.
Sounds so much better than Google default voice. Makes voice navigation sound so much more pleasant & less robotic than Google's default voice. I also like that it can accept corrections for the occasional mispronounced words, unlike competitors like Ivona. I replaced Ivona with SVOX because I hated how Ivona mistakes interstate highway names like saying 'I minus 85' instead of I-85, and then had no way of correcting it. SVOX gets this right by default, but also can be correted when needed.
Doesn't work for galaxy s5 phone Every time I open the app it unfortunately stops. Furthermore I reported at a half a dozen times and apparently they don't keep seem too concerned about fixing the problem. In my humble opinion this app sucks balls!!!
Victoria svox Do NOT waste your money like I did...They took my money and this svox will NOt install... Email complaints bounces... Facebook site is unresponsive...Wish I had read negative comments before purchase...(I mean rip off) Have heard NOTHING from developers and i cant stop payment...
- Resolved issue with the status bar notification that was always telling users to reinstall the application.
