Where can I find free voices for Garmin?

 

I found a couple on the Garmin site, but have been trying to find some more good voices for my Garmin Nuvi 765wt. Thank you in advance for your information.

Garmin addons not good

IMHO, the Garmin voice addons called Elfred, Dr. Nightmare, and Matt White are not very good. None of them speak street names. In fact, I deleted them from my GPS. I simply like to use the voice editor and edit the existing voices. Just my 25 cents worth.

Thank you for your information . . .

Thank you for your information. I do not really like the Garmin voices either. Can you provide me with a method to edit the existing voices?

Voice Editor

Sorry, it doesn't compute

You use the terms good and free in the same sentence. If you don't like the extra voices Garmin provides, then absolutely stay away from any others. My experience with the add-ons available from other vendors is they are pure CRAP! (And that's being VERY nice.) Some of the ones you buy are a little better, but the majority are impersonators and they aren't even good impersonators.

I use TTSVoiceEditor

I changed some of the phrases, and slowed the voice down a bit. My favorite and clearest voice is "Jack". I changed "roundabout" to "traffic circle", "recalculating" to "recalculation another route". Yea, not much creativity on my part. But I dont want to make drastic changes that makes it too silly. The GPS is a tool, so I try to keep the integrity thus, but make it fun too. There is a non TTS editor at this download site too. I havent used it any. Be sure to copy the voice file in the Garmin to a safe place before editing, just in case something goes wrong somehow.

I agree. Only the Dave free

I agree. Only the Dave free voice is any good, unless you are under 12 years old.

Got a big laugh out of this old thread - just before my joining.

That is great!!!

Think I will do that for my 765.

Garmin Voices

I once downloaded Garmin Voice Studio and used my own voice to give directions on my BF's garmin. He got a kick out of it and still uses it sometimes. The link to the download is here
