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 TOMTOM330S , I ONLY FIND TWO VOICES THAT WILL WORK WITH STREET NAMES. IS THERE ANYWAY TO HAVE MORE CHOICES THAT I CAN USE WITH STREET NAMES


To get tts (text to speech) you have to use a computer generated voice. TomTom does not offer many tts voices, but you can download tts voices thru TomTom Home.

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.

TomTom® XL 330S GPS Receiver street names announced?


your xl will not say street names if its using a human voice, because it can not convert text to speech

you have to use the computer generated voice option to utilize the text to speech feature.

tap the map screen, the go in the preference option, then locate the change voice option.

on my xl its on the 4th page but your 330 may differ slighly.

it probably wont tell you which are computer or human generated, so youll have to experiment.

you can read about your voice options HERE

you can get a copy of your manual HERE if you need one.

Cannot get spoken street names


I have the TomTom XL V2 UK, ROI & Europe and it doesn't speak the street names, if that's what you mean.
Presumably your model is the same.
Check the specifications to see if 'Text to speech' is supported.
If not, it won't say the names.

Tomtom xl 330.s is there a vido I can watch to see how it works?


YouTube is your best bet- use search strrings like 330s, tomtom 330- you can also look at the 130 and 130s, the models are nearly identical with the exception of size and the "s" designation refers to the text to speech option, otherwise the units are all the same. I've seen several reviews on YouTube about the devices and those will be pretty helpful to you

I have a tomtom xl 330.s and I was told that text to speech would announce the upcoming street name, but the only response that I get is a command to turn left or right.


In order for the text to speech to work you need to make sure that you have a computer voice enabled. Then after you select a computer voice make sure you check the option to say aloud street names.
