Changing the App's voice (Android)

Please note: This is to troubleshoot your app's voice navigation, and not to change the accent of the voice. 

Androids often have many other software packages you can install on your device, and Talk-to-speech (TTS) engines are some of them. TTS is the play-back voice that your Android device uses when reading words aloud and for voice navigation. 

Although, some TTS engines can be a great addition, some can cause your MapQuest app to speak too fast or too slow. If that's the case, here is where to change those settings (steps may vary by device):

  1. Go to your device's Settings
  2. Tap Language & Input
  3. Tap Text-to-speech options 
  4. Enable Google Text-to-speech engine
