    Similar problem. My 720 tends to pronounce only part of the direction and/or street name. Then it may work fine again. I have tried different setups with no positive results.

Hi Guys,

This is a problem with the application v8.300
if you are using a map v8.XX or higher you will need to wait for the next appilcation update which should fix this.
if you are using a map vv7.XX or lower, you can remove the 8.300 application from your device and download v7.481 by updating your tomtom again, this will revert your application to an earlier version which you can use until the next application is released.

Hope this helps.

I have a tomtom xxl.s gps does not speak streets name


Not all sound files speak out the street names. If you would like to have the street names spoken, you need to select a voice that ends with computer. For example, the voice file selection: Simon, English UK, Computer will speak street names. But the voice file, Bonnie, English US, will not speak Street names. Dave, English US, computer will give you street names but Lori or Mandy, English US will not.Procedure to get the street names spoken: Tap on main screen. Tap on change preferences. Tap on arrow. Tap on change voices. Tap (select) a voice that ends with computer. Tap select. Tap done till you reach the main screen.

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

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.

Tom tom 130S will not speak street names


As far as I can tell the Tom tom 130S only speaks the street names when you use the computer voice (female, Amanda) and not any of the other voices.

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 stuttering


TomTom Home now has a fix which corrects the stuttering problems with the computer voice needed for the 'text to speech' function on the GO720. Simply plug your device into your computer and have it connect with your computer. You should automatically see a large fix available which will correct the problem. Download it as I did, and the problem is corrected.

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.

WON'T SPEAK STREET NAMES


Greetings Seecar,
I had the same problem with the TomTom One. What you need to do is this:
When you select a voice preference you have to use a "computer" voice as it seems the "human" voice cannot pronounce the street names. I don't know if your model has the same choices but mine is set to "Samantha, English US"
Hope this helps
