Navigation Issue Solved in Latest Update

Several users reported that their voice stopped working in Google Navigation. The reason was a mismatch between the voice you’ve purchased and the default language on your Android.  Update 2.0.6 of the Classic engine fixes this problem. The UK English voice will be used even if the language setting on your device is US English, and vice versa.

Alternatively if you use the UK English voice you can go to Android Settings -> Language & keyboard -> Select language  and select English (United Kingdom) .

Loudness increased

Update 2.0.5 of the Classic Engine increases the default loudness of all voices to match the loudness of Pico voices.

The loudness of Classic can be configured in the Svox Classic TTS settings menu at the bottom of the Text-to-speech menu in Android Settings.  The TTS volume slider acts separately from the volume button on your device,  so you can make the TTS softer or louder without changing the loudness of other audio.
