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.
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!!!
It doesn't work! I listened to samples of voices available and this one was by far the best, so I buy it, install the app. Now every time I open the app it immediately shuts down and I can't do anything. I have tried un-installing and re-installing and it still shuts down before I can set it. Very disappointing.
Quality voice, but quiet The quality is good (not like a robot) but a little unclear and quiet. I tried setting the voice volume a little higher but then the voice sounded distorted. I eventually switched back to my default google tts voice because I could hear it better.
- Resolved issue with the status bar notification that was always telling users to reinstall the application.
