Something very strange happened this morning when my driveway sensor was tripped and my sonos speaker said “drive way motion detected” like it has 100 times before only this time it was in a British accent. I was a bit confused so I manually ran it and it was a womens voice with a British accent, then I ran a couple other scenes but the voice was the original voice. I rebooted the vera and then the driveway scene was back to the original voice as well. So i guess its possible to change the voice and would also like to know how because the British womens voice does sound better
All I see on there is English which sounds the same as the normal one I always here via your plugin. very strange

Ok so I found if i use the .co.uk translate site [url=https://translate.google.co.uk/#auto/en/]https://translate.google.co.uk/#auto/en/[/url] the voice is in the British accent, now i don’t know how it happened but would like to know if you have any idea. maybe there is a way to make a option to use the .co.uk google server?
I just tried it again and when I use the .co.uk one I get a female voice with British accent. And on the .com on it is a female voice American accent. I think what I could just do is save the output as a mp3 and just use that instead. I only came across this by accident and was more curious how it happend.
Also tried .com.au and that is different then the other two as well.
Maybe I am not able to distinguish accents ;D I just tried with a “hello world”. I will try again.
So the change would be easy, it would just need a new setting to select the Google domain.
You can already try to modify line 54 in file L_SonosTTS.lua replacing translate.google.com by translate.google.co.uk and let me know if it works.
