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 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.

I don't use this feature but its an excellent idea—a no-brainer really. Also for Greek and Hebrew texts?

Queue up the emails from "offended" parties that Accordance would assume on someone's preferred / first language.


Just sayin'   :D
