Some languages for voice navigation are not supported in Locus. Can you enable at least English language instead?

I'm happy LocusPro/geocaching user. This missing functionality forces me to use other road navigation.

Hello guys,


Aleksander, I'm not sure I understand "are not supported". If you have Locus in same language as enabled Text-to-speech engine in your device, voice should work. There should be no restriction.


Maybe you should post a screenshot from TTS manager (Settings > Lanugage > Text-to-speech settings)

Gynta, thanks. I downloaded 3 voices, I'll test them tomorrow on road.

Menion, google supports about 64 languages, but not slovenian.

English navigation works fine. I don't know the cause, but once or twice road path was calculated for left lane driving car. Application also works fine with Garmin Glo external GPS device.

Thanks Aleksander.


may I understand that when enabled English TTS in your device and Locus is also in English, it works for you?


Anyway I'm aware that setup of TTS in Locus is not perfect. I sometimes also have a troubles with it. Unfortunately even that I tried, I was not able to find out some universal working solution. Weird ...

Default TTS: English

Android ver 4.4.4.

Locus Pro: Slovenian language

Hello Aleksander,


so I've finally found a method how to choose different language for TTS, other then for Locus itself. So check please next version, hope it will work for you correctly!

Aha..


It is 5 years later. It seems that English is still only supported. Is there a way to support more language TTS?

Hi ColdAutumn,

why you think, only English is supported? App already supports all available TTS languages. By default should be used same language you use in the app.

Hi Menion,

Because your very confident question, I have already viewed all of my settings, now I have implemented all!

Locus is still English UI, but TTS speech is what I need.

I have always thought that Locus only supports English TTS because I can't see more TTS languages.

However, this is because I need to open all TTS voice in Android.

Then I returned to Locus, I saw all TTS voice.

Locus is really great, I may even only know 1% of the function.


Many thanks.

I'll check, but I'm very satisfied using English voice. Thank you.
