Bonkers Kate again

Post by Kevintiobraid
Is anyone else getting Kate speaking a mix of English and what sounds like French or maybe Spanish?
For about a week now she;s saying "destination" as you would in French.  And exit pronounced "ex-eet" , (imagine a comedy French accent)

The saga of Kate - Sometimes she's softly spoken (as if in another room), sometimes she's very loud for no apparent reason and sometimes she forgets how to pronounce Road (preferring Row).

Mine's not as extreme as that, Kate remains Kate but does a bad Manuel from Fawlty Towers.  
I'll reproduce and submit logs.

In all seriousness, this seems to be an ongoing issue for some users.  A similar bug has already been logged, for incorrect Spanish speed camera alarts:

Got this today, twice, so I've sent logs and will mention it on the bug report.

Only seems to be the iPhone though, as my Android has never done this.

I am now getting two voices - both female - both reading road names.

They almost work in tandem.

It is as if one is teaching the other - very odd!
