Hello all, ok today I got to play with a family relation's iphone 4S updated to IOS7 and using the afore mentioned voice in the subject line did discovered that for me it definitely sounded muffled and I thought I detected the beginning of the word genral cut from the beginning. From just exploring the phone with this voice personally for me I got the impression that this voice has droped in what I would term as audio reduction quality. At least it feels like that. Unfortunatly I couldn't play with the HQ of this voice because the family relation doesn't have wi-fi and I didn't want to go using up all her data just to test it out. If anyone can confirm that the HQ voice is the same as it was in IOS6 or it too has degraded in quality that would be grate.
So last thoughts:
Compact voice is very surprisingly reduced in audio quality and am very much concerned that letters of words may cut out of speech regardless of where the silabals are present in the word.
The reason for my worry is because I am hearing in pared and this would take presadence over blindness 1st off and I would struggle to use the newly adapted changes in this voice in various different environments.
I am thinking of going to an Apple store over here in the UK and demonstrating the reduction in quality of the compact british Daniel voice. What do others think about this idea? Thought it would be best to show an employee from the store 1.2.1. The impact that it may have on hearing in pared users. The reason I say this is because after playing around on the 4S I then went back to my own which is a 5 and totally noticed that it was much clearer, louder easier to understand and pronounced words better. maybe those are the key word. I don't know so that's where you all come in :)
I would like to know for those who use this voice as there default over here in the UK or from anywhere else in the world if you can get it how you are finding the changes. If you like, hate, un-able to function etc with the new ios7 with this and only this voice.
I don't want this thread to go off topic and get cluttered with all the other moans and groans about the other voices. I am by no means discriminating our international users. Its just, don't want it to get confusing that's all.
Thanks and I look forward to those who contribute.
