I was using my Galaxy Nexus for some turn-by-turn navigation today and it was an odd experience. Half the instructions spoken by the Navigation app were in a typical synthesized voice, while the other half were in a chipper, natural sounding voice.
"In five hundred feet, turn right. Then YOUR DESTINATION IS ON YOUR RIGHT."
Google has a new speech synthesis technology in conjunction with Android Jelly Bean, but I'm still running Ice Cream Sandwich and I'm getting a split-personality from my phone. You can really notice the voice quality difference when so closely juxtaposed.
I can almost imagine the following:
New Voice: In five hundred feet, turn left onto...\ Old Voice: STATE STREET.\ NV: Turn left onto...\ OV: WHO SAID THAT?\ NV: Turn left onto...\ OV: HELP, I THINK I'M BEING REPLACED.\ NV: Turn left, please.
