    Text read aloud

    My suggestion deals with having text read aloud. I love this feature but the way in which I'm asked if the text should be read aloud sometimes appears to be rude while in the presence of colleagues or relatives. I do not want them to think I'm rudely ignoring
    someone when actually I just want the text contents to be private and not read aloud. The phone should simply ask if I want the text to be read aloud and I respond with a simple yes or no. Not "ignore". This gives the impression that I deem the senders text
    "unimportant".

    Read aloud not recognizing

    Hi chouchouxG

    i suggest you use the feedback hub (winkey+F) to let the development team know about this issue, hopefully they will fix it quickly.

    in the meantime, when read aloud is on, click the person icon on the read aloud toolbar to adjust the voice and/or the speed to see if that makes a difference.
