    I've been using text to speak for years and it's gotten to the point where no matter how clear I speak, it will make up words that do not exist in replacement of the word that I said. For example, if I say the word "field" your system will spell it "feeld" which is not even a word. Or if I say nightmare, it will spell out "knight mare". Actually had the correct two mistakes speaking giving this review which is as ironic as It gets. And that's just one problem. There are so many more. Please fix

    online I've been using the standard English (UK) female voice, and it's worked well untill today; where suddenly, the voice changed. And it started taking huge pauses after every sentence. Which is EXTREMELY annoying. Luckily I can still use the old version by UNINSTALLING ad relying on the standard bloatware which comes pre-installed on my Samsung device. Thanks for fixing something that was not broken. :)

    engine Better Annunciation than the previous version. Very difficult to get the male voice set and to make it stay. The new update causes the same text to be read over and over again until you dismiss the app that's using it entirely. It will immediately start reading the same thing over and there really isn't any way to stop it even when you hit pause or try to turn it off it just keeps going until you backout of everything and find the app and swipe it out of recents.

    voices In the last year or so this has gone From decent to horrible. It doesn't understand half of what im saying no matter matter how fast or slow I speak, It leaves so much out and then turned words into something totally different. it's frustrating!! The whole reason I use this is so I don't have to type. Yet here I am typing away because it just won't say what I want to say. And I'm speaking clear English. 👎👎👎

    gmail The app was fairly good till the latest update as of October 2020. This update has made the English United states sound more robotic. There are now instances of long pauses between senpeech, which makes comprehension more difficult especially when working in tangent with kindle. If I could take back this update I'd take it.

    download I was using English (UK) Voice iv which used to have a superb male voice which was stable and efficient. It was not robotic. Today there seems to be an update on this app and the voice data is changed and voice is changed to English (UK) VOICE ii Which is worst and robotic. There is no old voice data. This SUCKS! Hope this wil be solved soon. Feeling sad. I used to enjoy TTS every day. Now this bad robotic unstable voice had ruined my days to come.

    api I realy liked this app for listening to audio books, but a few days ago it updated and broke the voice i was using. Austrailian voice V used to be clear and nataral, but now its a robotic mess. Can you add an option to download the original voices? I cant listen to the current ones; they give me a headache.

    how to use I know I have never seen such an application before. I can't say or explain the words that are pronounced so accurately.Another thing I have to ask the officials of Google is that many times when something is typed with Google Voice on my mobile, it doesn't work for a long time, then the mobile has to be switched off.We will be eternally grateful to you if you can fix it🙏🙏

    engine clear data Months and months have gone by with more updates and Google TTS is as bad as it was. Many words are still censored for no apparent reason even when this option is not selected. Also, many common words are mistranslated as non-existent gobbledygook that does not exist in any language I am aware of. This continuing failure is a severe drawback to voice input which will only be even more critical in the future as devices increasingly use natural language speech input.

    pc I have never figured out how to use this I get long messages on some of the messaging devices that I would like to have read to me but I don't know how to highlight them and have them read I don't know how to use this feature it's too complicated you should just be able to put your finger on something that's in text and a selection should come up to say read Google text to voice

    0, I am facing some problems. TTS voices have been reduced from 10 to 5. Male voices which have been reduced are dirty. Emojis flash emoticons are not read during the typing. Bad experience with Google text to speech. please improve these things as soon as possible in the next update.

    Since long time these important bugs not clear relating to Google text to speech. Hi there today I am reporting very important bugs, which are need to solve in coming updates. 1. Auto switching problem while reading dual multiple languages text in long messages. What happening is when we reading any text message which contain English and other regional language text same English voice is reading for both languages. so it has to change automatically into native language text voice. I mean to say

    Most recent update has broken UK Male voices I am experiencing wild and random low to high pitch shifts since the last update which is incredibly jarring it makes the voice sound like a high school student experiencing an awkward puberty. Reinstalling the english UK voice pack has not resolved the problem.

    Uk Voice female used to best. But it changed to robotic sometime ago. I changed to somewhat better Uk male voice but today it also changed. Atleast tell us if we need to pay for those voices. I'm willing to consider. But changing without warning is worst.

    Since last 3 years I am useing English US. But this upgradation is not very suitable because it changed the completely way of talking and it has a robotic voice. Try to fix this issue as soon as posible.

    You'd imagine the Google devs would have better things to do than mutilating this app. For example, UK male voice II now displays bizarre fluctuations in pitch, giving the impression of a sex change mid-sentence. What a game eh, getting paid to break stuff.

    This app Slotomania and John Goodman are in my opinion using illicide and inproper ways of advertising this app. For instance they do not show any symble to exit like an X and so user is unable to return to their game. This I not only find intolerable but very frustating as well. His John's portrayal of being a part of an indext finger is actually more like a middle finger if you know what I mean.

    Overall, they've implemented the correct pronunciation of coronavirus-related words such as COVID-19 and Fauci. Recently, they changed the pitch of the default female US English voice and made it deeper. Why would you do that? It sounds so bad now! Not only that, but they changed the main gender for a language from a female to a male! Such a stupid update!

    It's good but there's still some improvement that needs to be done for example, when reading a text it does not observe the "question mark". There's supposed to be an inflection of the voice to reflect that a question is being asked but it just reads it like it's a normal sentence that stops with a "full stop"

    I believe in the quality of Google Text-to-Speech. It's got a great selection of voices to choose from. There's allot of great voices that can be downloaded and a variety of English-speaking voices to choose from. I like the voices to be the downloadable options that they are, because that allows for a variety of choices, while saving internal storage space for other things.

    I have been using this app to listen to my ebooks for a long time. However, in the last couple of years, there was an automatic update, post which the app was never the same again. It would stop reading after one para or sometimes after one sentence, then I'd have to click pause and play again for it to buffer and play again. I've got a good internet connectivity, so that's not the issue. In my old phone I had reverted back to the older version by removing the update and it was working fine. Now I've shifted to a new 1+ phone. And I realised that the app has gone many more updates since then. So although I can Read Aloud my ebooks using Google Play, I also have to have patience to keep waiting for it to buffer and read or even click pause and play every couple of seconds to keep listening to the text. I'm someone who has used this application gladly for all these years. I hope I will be able to continue to use this app and not delegate it to the trash or see it as a bloatware.

    I think Haitian Creole should be added to Google Text-to-Speech. Plus, I liked the voice Google used to have for Haitian Creole. Also, I think it would be nice if this app adds the Hindi voice that Google used to have before 2015 in high quality. It seems more natural and authentic than the current default Hindi voice.

    There was an awesome voice that worked really well in an e-reader I use, then after an update it started mispronouncing things. "To" became "ta" and "for" became "fer" when at the end of a sentence. A couple other words are that way, as well. In one of the works I was listening to a character's name was Ab, but I spent the entire story listening to them being called "A-flat." I emailed the address listed on 24 July 2020 but have yet to hear back.

    Recent update removed all but two US English voice options, including the one I used. The male voice option we have now is terrible with inflection all over the place. The female option is high-pitched. Voice options from other accents have been removed too, including my favorite UK English voice. The voices offered used to be great, but not anymore.

    Before this app would have had 4 stars. It went from level 7+ performance to a level 1 performance when I switched my phone over. What makes is so bad is the phone I had before would be a slap in the face to go back to vs this one. What gives? I press the mic to talk and it just flashes. Not even to the syllables I'm speaking. Then ------ NOTHING. It's updated to the current fix supposedly but it's not working. I have been trying to stick with Google but I constantly get disappointed with this.

My favorite voice is now - I am very sad to say - gone, and in its place in the settings I find one that's not nearly so pleasant. I would have given Google TTS five stars before this change, but can now only offer two.

    Absolutely outstanding. This review is written using your voice to text technology. I use it multiple times every day and I tell everyone I know about this and they love it. Sometimes though, when you say the words full and then stop together it puts the actual words in and doesn't place the punctuation symbol that I would like. Hopefully that is easily fixed as I would imagine not a lot of people would say full and then stop as part of a normal sentence. :-)

    With the latest Google TTS update, the English U.S. voices have been reduced from 8 to 2, with an annoying female voice whose earlier incarnation was infinitely better. Google needs to stop skimping on its TTS, upon which blind Android users such as myself depend. U.S. English speakers, which constitute Google's main markett, should not have our voice options decreased, without any ability to redownload the former voices to which so many of us had grown accustomed.

    It's great for those who have limited use of their hands, HOWEVER, many times the words I say, and the word combinations that it comes up with have absolutely no correlation to the subject matter. It should, at least realize when it has created a nonsensical sentence. Please add a "verbal dictionary" where we can add frequently used words or names that are *always* misspelled. Assistant has it for name pronunciation, and I believe that the addition of that would be extremely beneficial. Ty

    I'm a blind user of TalkBack. The Google TTS app is superb, but somehow many English language voices, both UK and U.S. voices either don't announce the letter I've just typed or have a long delay, and the sound is a bit strange. The default British voice works fine, the American one doesn't. I hope you'll fix that as soon as possible. Thanks in advance. Mike

    Probably the same problem as a lot of people are complaining about sometimes it gets the words right sometimes it's way off you would think with something that is used as often as it is by so many different people it would be more up-to-date and more accurate with the words. I literally spoke to a preacher saying you're a good buddy instead what is sent was you're a good gay boy.

    The voice is excellent and sounds very realistic. The problem is it won't read Bold and is picky with bracketed or italicized words. I also noticed when I ask it to read an a article on the internet that has been edited it still reads the old version of the article.

    Since last OS was installed in July of 2020, I can no longer keep my texting choice on Google text. It defaults to Samsung. I have to change it every time I key something in when I'm texting either in text messages or in dating apps or anything. Unhappy with this new change. Also The system will no longer and let me say . Or ? I have to type the proper punctuation now. Please addressed these issues. I'm currently on once again, Samsung voice input. Unhappily periods

    Does not recognize half of the speech that you give it. They need to make a special version for people Who have had a stroke or neurological issue as one app does not fit all. It is certainly the hardest app I have retrained over 100 times with no success.

    This app used to be the best at around. But now it doesn't even translate normal speaking in likes to put all kind of other things and places that it should not and comes up with some of its own working sometime it doesn't even recognize basic freaking English most of the time I'm using talk-to-text right now there so you just come messed up this whole thing is because I'm definitely not this illiterate it's just this damn application. It puts in sabotage things like when you put in I love you

    I use this app every time I text because I have arthritis and cannot type very fast. But lately this misspells so many words which never used to be a problem. For instance, when I say because it shows up as cuz. It adds words that I never said it makes me appear to be insane! Please fix this! I am currently Job searching, this cause many problems.

    Useless. Among the numerous bugs within this app, users can't change to gender voice of preference for tasks such as Google Map, Say "Hey Google", and functuons requiring the Text-to-Speech app. Amazing how Google/Youtube are quick and efficient to ban individuals and/or censor facts & non-politically correct statements, but can't fix their apps. Hey google app-developers: Try to incorporate the Male voice in the app. I know, it's hard for your left-wing brains to figure out how to achieve it.

    I don't know why it doesn't run well with all apps and all time. While I've updated to the latest version and downloaded voice data. But still it doesn't work well all time. With my EN HI dict it responds too slow. And with other apps like Patrika it doesn't. Not only that... I'm sure no body will reply me.

    This app just constantly accumulates data that takes up memory on my phone. Why? I don't know but it's annoying. I can't afford a $1000 mobile device so I'm already stuck with enough bloat ware. I rarely if ever use text to speech for anything. Maybe a word pronunciation twice a month. So where does all this excess data come from anyway?

    Recent update REMOVES all but two U S voices (down from nine voices). Removing updates restored voices - - until auto - update removed them again. I listen to ebooks using tts, and prefer this to the narrations in most audiobooks. That said, I'm not a fan of the remaining two U S voices and would prefer the option to retain the old voices.

    So I've been using Android for many years and Google's text-to-speech functionality has worked most apart. However within the last month they've seen the gone backwards or rather downhill. Every time I say something it doesn't come out the way I say it, especially it being clear and all.

    Google voice to text is not accurate at all. Needs major improvements on recognizing the correct word that is spoken and suggesting the next word that actually makes sense. Also needs major improvements on recognizing words that are saved in your dictionary.

    I'm using talk back with Android 8.1.0 on my tablet. like other reviewers before me, there are some words that I do say that don't come out as they're being said. but while riding a social media post, and doing trending posts, I can't even do a hashtag. And it just puts the words, hashtag. there should be more inflections on questions in all languages, and the voice of should be more natural sounding. There's also a lag in language twitching, but the ap it's good. And I meant, language switching

    I really got suprised at the clarity this app has. Its a free Text-to-Speech. Its very true to the southern way of talking. We actually talk with a beautiful flowing speech pattern. Example is i always have CC on my tv because i am partially deaf. One night I'm watching a program in the southern way of speech; I look at the tv and there was words all together yanowhatamean you know what i mean. My accent is born Yankee 9 years before i got to the south and i went deep south. My accent is great

    I hate the great big b&w icon I have to move constantly to read my android screen myself, when I don't need text on screen spoken aloud by my device. This is not a smooth flowing experience and it was previously. Can the size of that damned icon for text to speech be reduced on the screen? Help! I don't want to have to uninstall this feature and maybe more than just text to speech. Causes me annoyance to have to lose train of thought working on app function now something that came so easy before

    You're stuck with the Google conglomerate on android, so this is the only app that really works. Except it was designed by people who know nothing about editing text. When I manually enter text, this stupid app changes it. It garbles words, and when you need to send an "x" = "x" text so people can understand you, you try and enter the garbles word, and it CHANGES IT. Who designs software like that?? I need to be able to turn suggestions off, it just does not work on any level. This app, like all Google apps, is designed for Google, NOT the end user.

    I do a lot of dictation, and a recent upgrade has eliminated the ability to indicate new paragraphs. The words 'new paragraph' actually turn off the microphone. Not helpful. It's also stopped capitalizing proper names. This is causing more cleanup than it's worth.

    Previous to the recent Summer '20 update, the USA English voicings offered multiple Female and Male voicing choices and would have earned a 5 Star rating. Now only 2 poor voicings remain. Until the previous voicings restored this earns a meager 1 Star. Moreover, I have now changed to use Samsung's voicing. Please restore the prior choices!

    In June I rated this app as A1 star. I'm not going to make any corrections on this it's going to be exactly the words I dictate. This program has gone from 1 * 2 - 10 * since I rated it. When I get Jade I have a very clear voice. Everyone has said this yet when I get Kate I find that words are coming out that are nowhere near what I have dictated today I had to start a paragraph at least eight times before the right words were translated what on Earth has gone wrong the program is totally useles

    I would give it 5 stars but can someone in the team figure out how to fix the "A" sound. Im using this engine for my app but then the A sound is wrong when i use the words "identify A" vs "Identify A". Other words like point A, set A, class A has the same issue.

    So if I understand this correctly, the reason Google is so bent on me having this installed app on my cellphone; is because it does translations? Well how's it's Spanish & American Sign Language? lol! Sorry but I'm proficient at both, but glad you've actually created & released this late in the game! Maybe you should hire William Shatner for this update! lol! Sorry, I really need dust here, so to save space for someone else, I'm gonna delete this app, but thanks for creating one!

    When i use APP such as AIreader to play Chinese txt, sometimes the TTS spoke a few words wrong. Instead of speaking proper Chinese, it sounds like it's trying to speak English based on the PingYing of these Chinese words, making it sounds like an American tourist trying to speak Chinese based on PingYing labeling. I found this problem about 2 years ago, probably after an update. Before that, TTX worked perfectly. Should have reported earlier but hey, If you can, please fix the issue, thanks!
