    According to your site:

    “SVOX is now bringing its voice solutions to the Android Market. Use our voices in cool Android apps for navigation, e-book reading, speech-to-speech translation, language learning, and games.”

    I have SVOX and a purchased voice installed as per the instructions only to find out that the navigation app (Google Maps/Navigation) isn’t using the new voice. Is this a supported use for your paid apps? You indicate it is above. If I’m missing something, please let me know and I’ll try it. I’d love to get rid of the horrible Pico voice for my nav. Thanks!

    • Google navigation uses your purchased SVOX voice on Android 2.2 but not with earlier Android versions.

        Actually, scratch that comment – when I was trying it yesterday, it wasn’t working, but I just tried it again and its working now, so it must have required a reboot or something…

        Thanks for an awesome app!

    I don’t know if this is the proper forum for problems but…
    When my phone is rebooted svox is silent. I have to go to tts settings, chose Pico then choose svox andeverything works. This is an inconvenience but not fatal. The always use my settings is unchecked.

  3. Mike says:

    I have noticed that when Google navigation says a street name, it will say things like “main R D” instead of “main road” and “hwy” instead of “highway”, probably because the street names are abbreviated in the navigation data. Is this something that needs to be addressed in the app itself, or could the Svox engine address this somehow?

  4. Mike says:

    Seems to be fixed in Google maps 4.7.0. Or perhaps in the latest version of SVOX TTS. Thanks!

    Hi! I don’t have an Android but I am a PC user who’s looking for more TTS options and I’d like to know if I could access interactive demos in all languages.

    Can’t buy Russian voice using registered at Market Huawei U8150 with Android 2.2 – from Belarus. When searching from device, only single default Svox app is found and nothing from 2 Russian voices that can be found while searching Android market from desktop PC.

    I want to have some kind of e-book reader with russian voice.

  8. Kermonk says:

    You should make an app which change the language classification of language files, so we can use languages other that what they system local is set to (lame design)

    • Try the language override feature in the SVOX Classic settings

      • Kermonk says:

        Except the voice was included with Navigon, I have no idea what an ‘svox’ classic setting is (also, your descriptions in the android market says “Google Navigation requires that the Text-to-Speech voice matches the phone language.” (even though copilot can do it)
