Transgender phone I have the English_UK male voice installed but Google still insists on defaulting to the female network voice. When using Google Maps navigation I now get both male and female voice instructions. I'm sure the other day they started arguing. Also, the downloaded voice is slightly louder which is better for in car navigation.

I want hq back Whever said that the new standard voices now surpass the hq ones and removed them must either be deaf or have low standards. Way more muffled and robotic.

Good but not great The software does very well determining what is said and rarely gets it wrong. I would like to see the product do basic grammar though. It doesn't even capitalize the "I" in a sentence or the first word in a sentence.
