Q: How can I change the speech speed?
A: The speed of the speech is controlled by the TTS engine installed with Android. It can be set up by going to:
Settings --> Voice input & output settings --> Text to speech settings --> speech rate
Q: I don't like the voice. How can I improve it?
A: The default text-to-speech engine installed with Android is Pico TTS, it’s pretty simple and sometimes may sound a bit electronic. You can always install alternatives like eSpeak, SVox or IVONA from Android Market. Please check our blog post about this subject: http://www.movinapp.com/talking-android
Q: Why does the application take several seconds to load?
A: The first load requires getting all the words from the internal database. This may be slow on some older phones or very fast in newer phones. Once started, the application performance is excellent. However, please note that if you have an automatic task killer, it may remove the application from memory, thus requiring to reload the dictionary.
- How can I change the speech language?
Just go to Menu --> Settings and select the language. Currently, 3 languages are available:
* German (Germany)
* English (US)
* English (UK)
The text-to-speech (TTS) technology may not be available in some devices. To check if your phone is able of speech synthesis: Menu -> Settings -> Voice input & output -> Text-to-speech settings.
If not installed, your device may ask you to install the TTS engine. An internet connection may be required. We recommend installing it before traveling as roaming data tariffs may be very expensive.
