I had asked this to Orit and she said:
We need to create a rule to override  it in the server at this time it didn't work and our developer is trying to fix it

This is regarding the BUS issue.

I don't know these editors can be added or not. I know that Orit enabled the voice for them in their clients. I already confirmed with one of the editors that they can see the and test the new voice "US Jane".
Any idea if they can be added?

You should be able to test the voice correct?
I'll check the other issue and let you know.

Would anybody want to ßeta test new voice for US?

There is a new voice called: "Jane"

My initial impressions so far positive. It seems a bit faster than the default voice and seem more clearer. Would be useful those long directions on Hwy's in rather short segments.

Still there are issues with it. She read "Redman Ter" as Redmander. Also, few times it drag the word and read a little longer.
