New audio for Korean?

It sounds like there's a new lady on the audio for the Korean sentences. At least, the pronunciation sounds different to my ears. It sounds more like I'm watching a K-Drama ;-).

Anyone else noticed?

It looks like they've implemented the speech technology used on the Naver translate site; it sounds exactly the same. I'm happy with this as it's much easier to understand. Shame I'm almost finished with the Korean tree!

Yup, sounds a bit better than the robotic TTS we had before. I like it.

I still hear the old voice in both the app and on the website. Does anyone else have this problem? I really like the new voice, but can't hear it unfortunately :(.

It does! I am full Korean and the things the new lady says are why different. I agree all the way.

I don't like it at all. Unfortunatelly, we can't choose between the previous one and that one, in settings for example.

The previous audio sounded like she was talking on a subway intercom system.
