Accordance's text-to-speech feature is really powerful, but it would be nice to have more complex preferences for it.

 

The different voices in the preferences pane are great, but for foreign languages it would be better if foreign language texts were automatically read in a voice that correctly pronounces it or if the preferences allowed for different voices for different languages.

 

For example, I want "Amelie" to read French, "Jorge" Spanish, "Alex" English etc. without having to go to the preferences and switch the voice every time. In other words, I want to be able assign a different voice to each translation of the Bible I have, or, better yet, have Accordance automatically switch to a voice that can correctly pronounce the language.

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

 

Mac Air (13-inch, Mid 2013)

1,3 GHz Intel Core i5

4GB Ram

Next time: I'll buy only one with Retina, and hopefully without a glossy screen. A faster CPU and more RAM.

 

Sierra 10.12.5

Accordance 12.0.6 and waiting on 13 (on iPad Pro with 3D touch)

 

iPhone 4S
