TTS volume (iOS)

TTS volume (iOS)

Postby Aleksey » Fri Jul 12, 2019 10:12 am

Hi, Ernie,

Thanks for the app, I really like it.
But the new TTS is too quiet compared to the system volume.

I barely speak English. I Hope I understand)

Hi Aleksey,

I agree Siri is louder than Amazon Polly. I think the solution is to lower the volume of Siri. You can go to Deck Options > Sound > Volume > Sound __ (Siri side), change to say "50".

If that doesn't solve your problem, let me know.

I understand that I can turn down Siri's volume. But that doesn't solve the problem.
I have old and new TTS sounds in one deck. I do not use Siri.
But it is still inconvenient when I switch to another application, such as a music service.

Testing US English, I don't hear a big difference in volume between Polly and iSpeech. Maybe different voices are more pronounced. Both also seem similar volume to Siri from what I've heard. What you might want to do is delete all your existing TTS sounds (you can do that in TTS screen) and re-download using all the same provider (Polly). I don't have way to increase the volume of Polly sounds.
