Help Text to speech uses US accent regardless of selection


Android Enthusiast
Jan 17, 2012
I have tasker actions to generate text based alerts using com.google.android.tts:eng-gbr
This worked fine on my Note 3, 4 and 8.

On the 10 it uses a US accent regardless he first time it is played and then the correct voice afterwards, unless left idle for a time, (20 minutes is the smallest I can be sure of just now).

I have tried setting the default to en-gbr to no avail.

Does anyone have any experience in this area?

I posted it here first as it only went mung since moving to the Note 10 but am happy for this to be moved elsewhere if more appropriate as my example is specific to 3rd party software.
