Hello. I have a question for those who use new Apple-made Siri voices with VoiceOver on Mac or iOS device. Do you find these voices far more hard, illegible for listening on a high speed (seventy percents and higher)? I'm a Russian speaker and I definitely do.
For Siri itself these new voices are absolutely gorgeous, but not for using it to read web pages or books — here I've used beautiful Milena voice from Vocalizer since the very beginning of my blind life, and she speaks to me very clearly and pleasantly, even on a speed of one hundred percent on the Mac, and seventy five percents on an iPhone.
What do you think about it? Which language do you speak, and, if that language has the Apple-made Siri voice, how would you rate its quality for using it on a high speed?
Apple has got Siri voices for these languages (mind that every Siri-supported language has male and female voices):
Six English voices: American/Canadian, British, Irish, Australian/New Zealandic, Indian, and South African;
Two Spanish voices: Spanish (Castilian) and Mexican;
Two French voices: French and Canadian;
Other languages: German, Dutch (Netherlands), Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Swedish, Norwegian, Dannish, Russian, Japanese, Mandarin Chinese for the continental China, Mandarin Chinese for Taiwan, Cantonese Chinese for Hong Kong and the continental China.
