Not all sound files speak out the street names. If you want, 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.

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.

Spoken directions do not give actual street names


Hello, Mike, congratulations on your purchase of the gps. Here's what you should do:

Tap MENU - SETTINGS - REGIONAL.

Choose Voice Profile. This button shows the current language of the voice guidance. By tapping the button, you can select a new one from the list of available languages and speakers. For the speaker to announce actual street names you must select a language that indicates TTS (Text-To-Speech).

To hear a sample voice just tap on any of languages. Tap OK when you have selected the new spoken language.

Gps will not announce street names, highway's, etc. Important note: it had been announcing this data since I bought the GPS in December but just recently stopped doing so.


You have to change the voice to a computer voice. Go to where you choose voices on the main menu Change preferences > Voice preferences > Change voice. Find a voice with the word "computer" in the name and select it. At that point you will be asked what you want to be announced. By the way, this is called "text to speech" in TomTom talk.

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.

My text to speech functionality where the GPS read street names is not working on my TOMTOM XL 330 S. I have it set to the computer voice and the volume up but I actually get no voice instructions at all....


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"

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
