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!

Just purchased TOMTOM XL ONE Sat Nav , does it have the spoken street names on it or just "turn in 100 metres " Thank you


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.

TOm TOm XL 340s and it does not announce street names


hi, it wont announce street names if you have the human voice selected. you must use the computer generated voice du,b as it sounds, thats the way it is.

go tp the change voice option and select a computer generated voice and try again..it should prompt you that you have selected one or the other.

if this fails, let me know and i can give you something else to try

Not speaking street names


To get your TomTom to speak street names, you will need to change the voice from a recorded voice to a computer voice. This can be done by:
  • Connect your TomTom to your computer
  • When the TomTom asks do you want to connect to the computer, choose Yes
  • Open the TomTom Home application
  • Click on the 'Add Traffic, Voices, Safety Cameras, etc.' button
  • Click on the 'Voices' button
  • Click on the 'Computer Voices' button
You can now select a voice to install on the device.
Once you have installed a voice, change it by
  • Disconnect the TomTom from your computer
  • Turn on the TomTom
  • Touch the screen to bring up the menu
  • Touch 'Change Preferences'
  • Touch 'Voice Preferences'
  • Touch 'Change Voice'
  • Use the Left / Right arrows to navigate to the voice you just installed (Look for the word 'computer' in the upper right corner by the male/female option)
  • Touch the 'Select' button

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,
Pabz

I can not get the language changed to English (USA)


You inadvertently must have changed the language while toggling voice/speech settings. You need to navigate to preferences, and then voice settings, denoted by the lips or flag icon, depending on which unit, and you can change the language from there

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.

My text to speech functionality where the GPS read street names is not working on my TOMTOM XL 330 S. I have it set to the computer voice and the volume up but I actually get no voice instructions at all....


When you go to change prefernces/change voice don't use a recorded voice instead use the arrow forward or back to get to computer voice. Then you can select "read aloud street names"
