I had a curious thing on my Mac, that in different Apps the Text to speech was different than in MSWord.


I find out, that this comes from Accordance, I switch there to test on a greek voice. 


The funny and/or annoying thing is that, that the greek and the and hebrew  voice don't work in Accordance. But in another Apps (like http://www.condenseapp.com)the preferences from Accordance is to dominant and overwrite there the system preferences even if Accordance is closed. MSWord take always the voice from the Mac preferences.


Thats the opposite of what Accordance has to do.


Hope this helps to debug the text to speech function in Accordance.





ATTENTION: My bug reports are all with the GERMAN INTERFACE and with the EUROPEAN NOTATION! It can be the English interface has no bugs, I describe.

Bring more international Bibles to the store,
fix my reported bugs, even the old ones which never was addressed,
develop my feature requests, the new once and the once I made years ago,
in nearer future.

Text to speech in Accordance was developed long ago to read our own ASCII fonts correctly. The accuracy does vary depending on the voice you choose. It is not related to the Greek and Hebrew voices in Apple, which I am sure only read Unicode.
