Voice prompts on 885t

 

I cannot seem to find the setting to enable voice prompts. When I first got it I shut them off, now I want to turn it back on and am stumped!!!

First off...

...just to be sure, you are pressing the button on the remote to initiate a voice prompt, right?

If you are, then try touching Tools/Settings/Language/"DownArrow"/SpeechRecognitionPrompt and see if the prompts are On or Off.

This Way

It's found under TOOLS-SETTINGS-LANGUAGE. Just page down until you see the menu item "Speech Recognition Prompt".

I prefer it turned off. You see the question on the screen immediately without waiting 5 seconds for Jack to read it to you. Once you get used to using the Nuvi this way, you get to know what the next question will be without even reading the screen.

I can input a new address in half the time it takes with voice prompts turned on.

Voice prompt directions

Sorry guys I am referring to the direction prompts which tell you when and where you turn.

Try this.

your manual says - "Use the remote control to start or stop voice recognition. If the Nuvi does not enter speech recognition mode, make sure the remote control is activated. Step 1: From the Menu page , touch Tools > Settings > System > Remote > Deactive all Remotes. Step 2: Touch Activate new Remote. Step 3: press a button on the remote control.

Ah, what voice are you using right now? You need to choose a voice that's TTS like Jill, Jack, Karen, Emily, Lee or one other fella. If you don't choose a text-to-speech voice, you won't get detailed speech prompts. Is this what you mean?

YES

Exactly what I meant, how do you turn it on?

Tools > Settings> Language>Voice

Volume

Also check your volume settings. Make sure you don't have "Mute" selected. Go into Mixer and make sure you don't have "Voice" set to 0. While you are there, look at the Audio Output and make sure it is set to Internal Speaker
