I myself prefer using the Activities Rotor to switch between voices, but that's just me.
I guess using the Language Rotor, does save time on setting up voices though...

Do you know if this workaround also works if set up with the Activities Rotor, by chance? If there are multiple ways to accomplish the same thing, all the better.

I honestly have not noticed the lag much on my end. But yes, switching between voices via the activity rotor definitely helps with speeding things up when necessary.

Also, unlimited amount of voices!
Well, the ones Apple has currently... I have at least 4 in my activities Rotor.
