Why trunc 221 ? This was probably an intermediate version. Just use the official release 1.4, that is what I recommend.

your advice is always bang on... t221 was an older fix.  I uninstalled and installed 1.4 and it all seems to be fine now

thanks for your trusted input!

So, I've been merrily using this since last August when the option / feature was added to the Sonos plugin.  Suddenly today the audio is spoken in a female voice, and not nearly as "eloquent" as the male voice the I've grown accustomed to.

Anybody else having this occur as well?  I did some searching and cannot see a way to specify the gender of the voice within the Microsoft account settings, and nothing has changed on my Vera side.

So yours changed too, but opposite of me?

I was using the "default" Microsoft voice (English En), which for me was a male.  I think it's just a matter of what you have become accustomed to, and now, suddenly being different, I'm not liking it...

Just tested and indeed if I choose Canadian, I get a male voice, but female for all other English voices.  Seems perhaps Microsoft has changed things, w/o the ability to define, and without any sort of documentation / heads up that I can find.

I just notice en-US changed from male to female so I've changed my settings from en-CA to en-US to get my female voice back. the basic en voice still is female but I'm not fond of her accent or that of the australian female voice.

I always have my local MaryTTS server as a backup luckily.

OMG... I thought I was going crazy.  Yep... my US-CA changed to male as well.

I know. I had the same feeling when my en-CA voice changed. It's just my preference to have a female voice make the announcements. Now if only I could find a 'Jeannie' voice, that would be perfect...

The French voice changed from female to male. And my preference is for a female voice :(
So apparently they switch several voices.
It would be fair to let the user choose between male or female.

en-GB has gone from a very well spoken male voice to a female voice that has some awful translation quirks.  :(

I presume from the conversation that there's no way to specify otherwise and you just have to suck it up?

Correct, you are at Microsoft's (and for that matter Google's) mercy as to what voice you will receive. The en-US female voice is not half bad although I preferred my old trusty en-CA one.

Same here. I suddenly started hearing a choppy male voice last week & couldn't figure out what I had done. So now it's en-US, until it changes again.
