What was that?

I can’t understand what is being said. What can I do?

The text-to-speech engine that comes with most android devices is not very good.

There are two things you can do:

  1. You can upgrade your text-to-speech engine. It might be worth reading this blog to get more information before you do. I use IVONA which sounds good but uses up a lot of space, but there are a number of others.
  2. You can record your own version of the words that are not clear (see definition tutorial).

Note: Cuddly Dragon team has also found that the SVOX text-to-speech engine is a little buggy and occasionally crashes. So if your text-to-speech stops working suddenly and it belongs in the SVOX family, you might want to try a different engine.
