    Just thought it'd be a good thing to post;

    Anybody notice Google Navigations new voice? It's really nice. Much more humanoid than previously. It would seem as though this is an improvement in ICS itself, not just Google Nav. Sweet. ;)

    Ahhhh,.. I'm not a fan. The fact it "sounds" more humanoid just emphasizes the mechanical tones... if that makes sense.

    Theres a thread currently on page 2 of the general forums about this and ways to swap voices.

    go to setting, language and input, text to speech output, choose prefered engine, click on settings button, choose language, choose english uk version, or download ivona and use that

    I couldn't stand the OEM voice. It sounded like an old lady dying. I played with speach speed as someone suggested and that didn't help. I got the Ivona and I like it much better, but I'm still waiting for Salli to become available for droid.

    Used Nav yesterday and the voice sounded kind of drunk to me. I am going to play with a few of the other TTS products to see how they work. Nice that we have the option of changing it.
