As the title says, I would like to know, what has happened to Garmin Voices section ?
I have tried to ask the question, in Room for Global Mods and Admins,
about 2 month ago, with no reply at all.
Now the thread has been deleted, with no reason
The mod. who deleted the thread, kindly advised me to contact Admin.
So my second question, who is Admin in the Garmin Forum ?
Any help with these questions, would be very much appreciated.
What happened to the phonemes standard of quality of the British and Australian TTS voices in both Garmin 2595, 2757 and Tomtom VIA 620 ? (and probably their contemporary models)
I have experienced them all say 'ava-NOO' instead of 'ava-NYOO' (for 'avenue'), and no doubt will say 'NOO' instead of 'NYOO' (for 'new') - in Brit and Aust voices!
These are for TTS voices James, Emily, Serena (British) and Lee, Karen (Australian)
It appears the TTS voices come from somewhere else other than Tomtom or Garmin? - since both manufacturers do it.
Anyone know where? I'd like to ask them direct about this!
(further notes: later models lock out voices not from your region - so can't can't even use an American voice in Aust!!; older versions of these voices will not load onto later model GPS's; thats if the phonemes are stored in the voice file itself, or call up pre-loaded phonemes in the firmware....dunno)
I appreciate the admins are often very busy, especially when things are broken. An announcement or two would be nice though! Just to have an idea what is going on when a section or the entire site vanishes.
