## TTS voices on Android not seen/selectable in Primo 9.6.29

Hello, I tried to get the TTS voices running, but it just won't succeed and it's driving me nuts!
I started a discussion here: TTS voices on Android not seen/selectable in Primo 9.6.29
but I was suggested to try this in the Android section (even though there are many android questions..)
Here's the problem:

I have Primo for Android 9.6.29.329069
am trying to get the TTS with Acapela running, but everything I do just won't work:

put some ZIP files with the TTS voices to content\voice, but only the natural voices show up in the voices selection in Primo.
I tried files like:
Voice_TTS-nua_dut-m1-lua-dri40-vssq5f22.zip
Voice_TTS-Pro-Dutch-Android-zervdim_v2.zip
Voice_TTS-svox_dut-f1-lua.zip

so, please tell me how to get these working, or at least how to select them in Primo!
ps: I need the Dutch voices

Strange thing is that it worked with a prior Primo version (don't know which one I had before)

btw: Yes, I did search and read A LOT, both in here as well as several other forums, but never found the solution.
Changing in the .INI file from 'Dutch' to 'dut' etc. won't work either.
I also tried to set the Android TTS engine to the default Google one and to the SVOX that I have too. I don't think that iGo identifies if the Android OS has a TTS activated.
I tried several 'sources' to get the voices from, but even though people say that they work (on their versions of iGo) the y won't work with my device, because they are not even visible!

So, can anyone help me with the TTS voices? Maybe a working Dutch version (or even an English one just to find out if iGo can work with TTS)

Anyone?
Is there no develop of iGO for Android anymore? This site is so silent...
Or has everyone moved to the 'regular' iGo section?

hi,

I use IVONA as default TTS engine with Romanian main voice
and in my sys.txt I have this on the end of the file

Code:
[tts]
automatic_direction_conversion=1
announce_exit_directions=1
announce_street_name=1
priority="HIGH"
ttspro_da_voice_enabled=1
tts_speedcam_sounddelay0=90
tts_speedcam_sounddelay1=140
tts_speedcam_sounddelay2=140
tts_speedcam_sounddelay3=140
tts_speedcam_sounddelay11=90
tts_speedcam_sounddelay17=140
And on "content/voice/Voice_TTS.zip/info.ini" file in TTS voice zip I have some lines modified like this

Code:
languagekey="Romanian"
languagename="Română"
luavoice=1
phoneme_lang="ROR"
tts_destnames=1
tts_engine="Android TTS"
tts_langname="ro"
tts_mode_mixed=0
tts_rate=100
ttsvoice=1
And for me it works on Romanian even if IVONA is set to default English ( I have English and Romanian engine installed )

If you are trying to use Svox then you need the Svox basic package plus an Svox voice such as Victoria.
You could also try using Loquendo.
Under 'settings\voice input & output\text-to speech settings' select preffered voice and engine. Tick always remember my settings.

I have SVOX, Acapela, Google and Pico with correctly installed voices, but neither will work with iGo.
They DO work on EVERY other application, so it definately is a problem with iGO!
