1- Are you sure the voice doesn't work or did you maybe turn the volume down and forget to turn it back up?
2- someplace in the settings (and i don't know where) there is a screen for which voice you want to use. Find that and set it up again.
3- Thats about all the help i can give you. Don't own a tomtom and have never used one.

SOURCE: My text to speech functionality

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"

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

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.

Xl340s will not speak street names , street names on key board will not take sometimes. new unit out of box


You need to use a "Computer" Voice I believe Susan is the female option and Richard is the male option. Only the computer voices can read 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.

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

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
