Individual speech rate parameters for premium voices in iOS7

Hello everyone! Is there anybody else who is using more than one premium voice on their iOS7 device? For some reason, I cannot set individual speech rate parameters for each of them even though such an option is available. Baiscally, all the secondary premium voices follow the main speech rate value. In my case, I am using Russian and Polish voices in addition to the main US voice. Can you please confirm if yu have similar experience? Best, Victor
Hello victor. I am similar experience too. I think this is iOS7 bug.
Same thing here Victor, I'm using Hungarian and Portuguese besides US English, and I'm getting the rate of the primary language.
I'm using US English and Australian English. Are we actually supposed to be able to adjust each voice's parameters separately? I guess I always assumed the adjustments we made covered all voices as a whole. It never seemed like a bug to me, just the way VoiceOver was designed. But I could be way off on that.
Yes, for each voice in the language and dialect in more info there is a rate slider and it would appear that they should be set individually but in fact, only one can control all of them.
Apple says they know about this but that's about all they are saying.
