Although I live in the UK, I have always chosen to use the US English voice on my iPone, iPad and iMac.
I got an iPhone 5 last week and after setting it up, added US English to the language rotor and away I went. As an aside, every time VO restarts, it defaults back to British English and I have to manually change it back.
Anyway, my reason for this post is that the voice quality is horrible. It sounds fuzzy somehow, sort of muffled. It made me wonder if my hearing was going funny!
this morning, after rebooting my phone after the battery died, I accidently listened to the British english voice and noticed that it is much much better. Clean and crisp, with no fuzzyness.
I've looked and Use Compact Voice is off when either voice is speaking, but my question is, is the US English voice rubbish now or am I really using the compact voice?
I added Irish and South African and they sound as bad as the US and they to said compact voice was off, but only seconds after I'd switched and presumably to soon for them to have been downloaded.
How do I know I really have the full voices on my device?
