Male Voice Option?

Does anyone else think it would be a nice little touch to have the option to switch the computer voice between male/female? Not a big deal, but doesn't seem like it would be hard to implement.

Well, it does look like it will take a rather long time...

Why is that?

You probably have to record the voice, word by word.

We do not record the voice word by word :)

That's what I thought! It's some kind of software that recognizes it. Seems like it would just be a matter of changing the audio on it. Ultimately it's a small point though!

We have quite a few big features we're working on right now, but I'll definitely mention your suggestion. Look for exciting new stuff from us soon :)

I would just prefer to seem an improvement in the Italian voice pronunciations. Man/woman doesn't matter to me as long as it's less robotic and more accurate.

That's true- the issue arises in Spanish pronunciation once in a blue moon- but I have a feeling that's a lot harder to address.
