Text-to-speech is in the wrong language
(11-27-2017, 06:32 PM)jim_chapman Wrote: Freda can read out text, using any language pack (voice) that is installed on your device.  But it can happen that the text is read in the wrong language.  The fix to this is to adjust the 'language' of the book.  In detail:

PROBLEM: My book is in German, but Freda reads it using an English voice; it sounds like an English person trying to pronounce German.
SOLUTION: In the bookshelf, right-click (or long-tap) the book, and when the menu pops up, select Edit.  Find the 'Language' field on the screen, and enter the two-letter language code for the appropriate language - in this case DE . Tap 'ok' to save this change, and Freda will now realise that the book is in German, and will read it using a German voice.

text to speech function constantly fails on Freda. Each time I try to read a book aloud, a pop-up message appears telling me that Freda cannot open the document because the file is corrupt or not properly downloaded or one of the many other reasons it gives. I tried redownloading the book and even redownloading Freda but the error persisted. I proceeded to download one of these Freda in-app books; the art of war, and I tried to use the function again but the app still wouldn't read it, HELP.

note: all of the other functions under the read menu beside 'read aloud' work properly.
