How to change directions to notifications?

Good day,

while driving I am listening to audio content (podcasts etc.) therefore I want minimal disturbance from navigation app. I want to change all direction commands to a notification sound.

Let me explain in more detail:
lets say, when I am passing a speed camera, an app makes a notification which sounds like "bing". When I am approaching a cross section, an app makes a direction command "turn right". Now, what I want to do is to only get a notification sound "bing" when coming closer to the cross section, instead of "turn right" voice command. Instead of "turn left" I want to hear "bing" as well.

I want to only hear "bing" instead of any directions instructions, and then I would follow the route on the screen.

I don't think this option exists in settings as a standard function. Can any workaround be used? I was hoping replace all command sound files with the sound file of "bing", but I can't see any plain audio files like .ogg or .wav , it seems like this audio data is stored somewhere in system files.

I am using TomTom GO Mobile GPS Navigation (newest version, it updates automatically) on my Samsung S9 (also, latest firmware updated automatically).

How could I solve it?

Many thanks for any advice!

    SOlved it!

    I have downloaded the recorded voice, found the .chk file, and then there is an instruction how to get .ogg files from it. I have replaced unecessary files with 100 ms of silence, and files which are needed (like "Turn right") with notification sound. Tested it, works perfectly. Thank you again!

    Well done!

    Please explain this instruction to get .ogg files. I do not find it in my .chk file
