Google Text-to-Speech version 3 brings new and high quality voices

The new additions in version 3 ate High quality voices: English US now features Female (high quality) in addition to Female, while English UK gained three new voices: Male, Female (high quality), and Male (high quality). These high quality voices are large in terms of file size, compared to the regular versions – 244MB for English US Female (high quality), versus just 6.8MB for the regular version. More languages like Brazilian Portuguese and United States Spanish are included. This brings the total of supported languages to nine: German, English UK, English US, Spanish ES, Spanish US, French, Italian, Korean, and Portuguese (BR). But for now only English US and English UK have high-quality voice for now.

Unfortunately, many flaws are there. We won’t get Play Books to use English UK, even when we set the phone language to English UK. The best way to have an east method is to use the Google Translate app.
