How can I download additional voices?

News-2-You includes two built-in voices: an American English female voice and an American English male voice. To meet the needs of a wider range of users, additional voices, including authentic children's voices and character voices, can be downloaded within the app when connected to the internet over WiFi.

To download additional voices, follow these steps:

  1. When using News-2-You as Administrator, open Options View (the gears). 
  2. Do either of the following:

    *Tap Administrator's Options.
    *Tap a user.
     
  3. Tap Speech.
  4. Tap Voice.
  5. In the "Downloadable Voices - English (US)" section, tap a voice you would like to download, and then in the popup that appears, tap the Download button. To listen to a voice, tap the speaker icon next to the voice. 

    Note that you can download more than one voice at a time. In addition, you can access more voices by tapping More English Voices...
  6. To switch to a downloaded voice, tap the voice in the "Installed Voices" section.
