I'd really like to ask waze to be less strict with the language options and the user's country and just let the user select whichever language he wants, and even enable TTS with the non-native language for whoever wants to risk it.
So my case on the other thread is basically this:
- a regular portuguese user can select the text and voice languages from a long set of options, which is great.
- myself I had tried to enable tts via the navigation code, and hence why my voice language setting had disappeared. I could change the text labels, with the same language list as before, but the voice language setting is not there, and whichever language was selected before (Portuguese or English or anything else) would stick forever.
Now the case that is making me envy of a friend, he's been some days in Germany, and when he came back his device has TTS enabled, and the list of text languages is smaller than mine (but fortunately still includes english and portuguese), and the list of voice languages includes two english and two german male/female combinations, nothing else, not even Portuguese).
So in my case I want to try the TTS in english and german, even if the portuguese road names will sound weird, and in his case he's listening to the road names in english and albeit can disable the TTS, can't switch to portuguese anymore.
So in conclusion, let us select *any* text language and *any* voice language and, hidden code, enable the tts and have it working even if not in the native language.
He tells me that the TTS, besides the reading the road names, has extra instructions that I never heard on my device, like "prepare for something", but I haven't heard his device myself. Mine just says "in 1km/800m/400m/200m do something".
That's correct, currently you can select only native language for the TTS, but we are working on expanding this option, so you'd be able to select between multiply languages.
