    Default Maps and turn by turn

    This question might have been answered but when i had my note 2 and the maps were updated they got rid of the computer generated lady that speaks the directions and gave you a more fluid and more genuine lady that doesnt sound like a computer. But on my note 3 i only have the computer generated lady that gives me the turn by turn directions even when update to the newest version...why is that?

    I don't know if you have this or not - when I wanted a better (more human sounding) voice I had to go into the Samsung apps and search for "English female high quality" voice. I've included a link to the one I have:

    http://www.samsungapps.com/appquery/...uipID=SM-N900V

    You can also of course get male voices, accents, and other languages depending on what you are looking for.

    Hope this helps,

    Sarks.

    Sounds like you are using google voice. Switch to samsung voice.

    where in the settings can I change that? That Google voice sounds like a sadistic dominatrix, I keep expecting her to slap me if I make a wrong turn, lol.

    Settings - language and input - text to speech.
