Hi all, using the english Hq female voices between Samantha, Karen or Tessa, which voice would you recommend is clearer, makes a good job of pronouncing words better and is an overall better experience for people who wear hearing aids such as myself since birth. I primarily use Daniel as my main voice and I am aware there is Moira but I have decided to dismissed her from my trying out process. After a while of using her. Currently, I am trying out the female voices and I can't decide which one meets my needs or is better to use on a daily basis. So I would like a 2nd opinion as it were or more would be better. Even comments are welcome if you don't have any hearing impairment. By now, I suppose you may be wondering why not just use the Daniel voice and that's it problem solved. Yes, I agree with you in part but I want to add a 2nd voice to my armar and your help will be greatly appreciated. I make an educated guess here and am thinking that most people will either be using either Samantha or Karen. However, if you do use Tessa too I would love to know why and even more interestingly if you had a hard time trying to decide on a voice which did you finally end up going for and in the end why? Finally to rap up. Again between the HQ voices of Samantha VS Karen or Tessa. Thanking you and looking forward to hearing your comments, experiences etc. Daniel
I like most of the voices you mentioned, but ...
Good question... But
All Are Good Imho
RE: Samantha VS Karen or Tessa HQ. Which do you use?
I like Karen too
I like Karen's voice too. I've used her when I used JAWS on my PC, and now I use her for VoiceOver on my iPhone. I always like how pleasant and friendly she is. One thing I would like to see in the future, are the new Siri voices that came out in IOS7 to be options for English speaking voices. That'd be pretty cool! :)
I don't have a hearing impairment, but I find Karen to have the most pleasant voice for longterm listening. She speaks clearly, and to me, she just sounds much more "human" than the others.
my voice of choice
My voie is going to be the karen because she doesn't sound like she is angry and judgmental.
