★ How to fix an occasional problem?
– Cannot hear the Best-of-Vox: First ensure that the volume of your device is sufficient. If this is the case, than it may be that the voice's data was corrupted during or after its installation. In order to reinitiate the voice, please perform the following steps: go to “Android Settings / Applications / Manage applications / Best-of-Vox voice”, click on “Force stop”, click on “Clear data”, return to the home screen, ensure that the device is connected to a Wi-Fi network (which is required to download the data), restart the Best-of-Vox application, wait for the download and data preparation to be fully completed, enter some text and click on the “play” button.
– Google Maps does not use the Best-of-Vox voice: Sometimes Google Maps does not respect settings for the default speech synthesis engine , even after installation and configuration of the Best-of-Vox voice as the default. In order to force Google Maps to use your voice settings once they are configured in the Android text-to-speech settings, go to “Android Settings / Applications / Manage applications / Maps” and click on “Clear data”. Google Maps will then speak with the selected default voice the next time it is started.
