You have to select a computer generated voice - It has to say "whatever name comes with your GPS" followed by computer generated.<!-- from fixya rte -->

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.

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.

Will not speak street names


The One XL will not speak street names, but the One XL-S will. Text-to-Speech is the main difference between the two models.

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
