I understand that it's sometime since the original question was asked, but, remastering the voices will allow you to increase the volume.

I know, that statement has not helped much... ;)

You can find all the information needed to implement the above at the following site which explains the whole process of creating or editing TomTom voices:

Or, to get straight to the creation/editing walkthrough:

I hope to have been some help to all who read this post.

Kind regards,

Richard

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.

I have a tomtom xl 325 se special edition bonus


There are two voices (male/female) that say "computer voice" by them. You have to select one of these voices to access text-speech for street names.

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

Tomtom xl 330.s wont speek street names


Yes Nickarino is right.
When I switched on my new tom tom it gave me that option to speak street names and it vanished after selected a different voice. I checked all manuals and web references in Tom Tom - none of them list it.
Like Nick said - what you need to do is swtich the voice type to SAMANTHA and it will show the option "Read Street Names Loudly". I jumped on it and said yes ..!!!
Thanks Nick !!

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 new tomtom XL It should have spoken street names, but I can not get it?


Apparently only Samantha can speak street names. Mine didn't come with it, but when I updated my unit by connecting it to the computer at the tomtom site, Samantha was automatically downloaded. I chose her voice and it works.
