[QUEST] Changing the voice in Voice Command?

is this possible i love how my phone reads my text messages to me and it would be awesome and extremely hilarious if "betty" had a British accent. I know that the UK version exist but is there a way to change the voice by replacing a file and some registry changes? this would be cool

Re: [QUEST] Changing the voice in Voice Command?

Not only is the default voice hard to hear, it's really unpleasant. It's the one area in which my old Samsung A920 blew this phone away: the voice was louder, more pleasant, and rarely got things wrong. I seem to have problems getting it to do what I want half the time on the TP.

Adjusting Volume of Announcements - There are two values that seem to influence the volume of announcements. They are stored within the following key:
HKCU\Control Panel\Sound Categories\Voice Command1

The values are:
AttenutationCategory
InitVol

There are apparently different default setting based on your device. In general the values are generally around 1-4 for AttenuationCategory and 1-5 for InitVol. Some research shows that setting InitVol to 40 and AttenuationCategory to 1 provide the best results. In my testing I have found the InitVol to do nothing. The AttenuationCategory definitely does something, it seems the lower the number the lower the voice. When set it to 0 the announcements were very faint. Setting it higher made them higher, although I can't say that anything over 4 or 5 got any louder.
In my findings I would say set both of these to 5 (I have read some other posts that lead me to believe setting InitVol over 5 is pointless, in addition, the posts that recommend setting it to 40 don't specify if that is decimal or hex).
