Computer voices Hi homemender, Thanks for your response to my problem re finding UK computer voices for my tomtom xl.

I just wanted to acknowledge your response & thank you & I will continue to try & download it.

Hi,

Thanks for the acknowledgement.
Sometimes ( mostly in fact ) there is more than one files ascociated with a voice. One file is for the Icon to show you on the tomtom what voice it is ( its the little picture ) . the other file is the voice data itself. So , in that case you would need to download both files to get the voice. Once you have them on your PC you need to copy both files to the "Voices Folder " on your TomTom SD card or Hard Drive ( some tomtomts have a small hard drive fitted ) .
OK , so once you have the files on your TomTom and in the right folder you would then need to switch on the TomTom and go to preferences , then change voice in order to select that voice on your TomTom.

Good luck.

Just purchased Tomtom ONE XL GPS , does it have


yes, but you have to use one of the computer generated voices, because it not capable of announcing street names with human voices.

tap the map screen, then the little wrench icon, then scoll to the page with the voice options (chance voice) and select a computer generated one.


if you can find it, let me know...its also possible someone has deleted the computer voices, in that case, youll have to download tomtom home to get them back.

No street names spoken


Have you selected an electronic voice? If you have a "standard" voice or have used a "celebrity" download voice, it won't give computed responses for street names.
Go to voices, change voice and try a digital/electronic voice. If not installed, use TomTom home to download an electronic voice.
Hope this helps

Tomtom constantly returns to Demo Mode


Hi,

My Tom Tom XL was doing the same. After several minutes it would revert to a demo and you would have to tap the screen to make it disappear, but would come back a few minutes later. I spoke with Tomtom Customer service, and the guy on the phone told me i have to plug it into the computer, go into the tomtom from My Computer, and delete a folder names Scripts. After deleting the folder, it's now working perfectly.

This should fix your problem :)

if you need any help you can email me: jamiel85@tpg.com.au and i can talk you through.

Cheers

My Tom Tom XL 330 S doesn't name the streets-just says TURN HERE


Hi,

When you choose a voice on your tomtom device, you will need to select a voice with the word 'computer' next to gender of the voice you select.

this will activate two option on the next screen allowing you to tick read street names.

Thanks,

TomTom XL Text-to-Speech not working


I had the same problem, before realising that text-to-speech on the TomTom XL on'y works if you've selected a *computer-generated" voice - and not all of them are. "Samantha/English-US" is computer-generated, for example, but "Tim/English-UK" is not (it's a recorded voice). When choosing from options in the "Change voice" menu option, check the top-right hand corner to tell whether a voice is computer-generated or not. Hope this helps.

I HAVE A, ONE XL AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO CHANGE THE VOICE MANAGER ON IT. THANK YOU DORIS


Hi Doris, you should really install the TomTom Home application on your home computer if you have not already done so. That will allow you to connect to TomTom's website & download updates & various other useful data/apps. Once you have that, changing the voice is easy. Or tap Preferences from the Main menu, then you should be able find the "LIPS" icon on your screen. Touch that to give you voice options. Good luck!

Spoken instructions


I had the same problem with mine until I found out that I was using a voice that was not compatible. I downloaded extra voices, like Sean Connery, Burt Reynolds, etc.
You have to select a computer voice like the standard like Jane, Tim, Ken etc.
I hope this is the answer you are after
