    My phone keeps trying to download the female for portuguese(Brazil) voice data for text to speech. I have tried to stop it multiple times but it just keeps coming back. Can anyone help?

    Welcome to the forums. What device do you have? Can you find the app in question in Settings>apps>swipe over to all apps?

    I have the same problem, stuck download which I never asked for, same message as you are getting.

    MetroPCS LG Optimus F6 Android phone with Jellybean OS.

    I've tried to find it in Settings / Apps where I do see a "Google Text-to-speech Engine" version app listed. I'm tempted to remove the app entirely but nor sure. I also have an active button for "Force stop" and "Uninstall updates" on that app. And a "Clear data" button. I have not tried pushing any of these.

    I'm a new smartphone user, so unsure of what to do.

    Thank you.

    Welcome to AC.☺

    I don't think it would do any harm to do a Force Stop, Clear Cache and Clear Data in that app, followed by Power Off of the phone and Restart, but this may be of interest:

    Thanks Belodian, I got rid of it and learned a couple of things: the "long press" on the stuck downloading screen first off. And I also changed my language in text to speech to English, not sure how it ever got to be Portuguese, but I was wondering why I could not understand my map directions to any place and didn't know how to change it. I've rebooted and the error seems gone. Thanks for the pointer to tips.
