start 42 TTS-Missing a computer voice

Can my Start 42 have a voice that reads out street names in the UK ? I have tried both Tim & Jane that came as a preset and neither have this facility . It is such a basic thing to have and wasn't aware that it was an option , if it is … Thank You in advance

    You need to be using either "Serena" or "Malcolm" in the UK, maybe @VikramK can assign them to you if they are not already in your account

    Hi @HemelHatter

    The UK Vices that you need to select for Reading Road names etc are Serena or Malcolm,.

    Tap menu
    Tap Settings
    Tap Voices
    Select Voice. Scroll up to the ones you want.
    Select what you want the unit to read out..

    Thank you for your reply Douglap but I do not have those two names on my tomtom and im not given the option to add them when looking on tomtom connect
    Do I have a problem with my device ?
    This is also why I thought that it was maybe optional from new
    Thanks again for your reply

    Hold on and see if @VikramK sees this and can add them to your account.

    Keep looking here tomorrow.

    Hi @HemelHatter

    Computer voice -Serena added for your device.

    It should be available for download in MyDrive Connect.

    Thank you very much VikramK
    I will try and add this to my device later this evening
    As a convert from Garmin I’m hoping this is going to work for me
    Thank you again
