    V oice US and UK TTS voices

    A friend of mine sent me Android English TTS for US and UK for my Marshmallow 6.01 Samsung s5.

    I figured out how to do it. Now it works fine. I still couldn't get the
    computer to show the hidden files but I figured out how to use the
    phone only.

    1. Plugged in USB cable to computer and from the notification pulldown I
    chose "file transfer." That brought up the internal phone and the SD
    card.

    2. Copied/pasted the voices-download folder to an existing folder on the phone. Remember the folder where you put it.

    3. Went to the My Files app on the phone, Device storage, scrolled down
    to the Android folder, data, com.here.app.maps, files, .here-maps,
    voices-download. Pressed the three vertical dots in upper right,
    select, put check in voices-download and deleted that folder.

    4. Opened up My files again, went to the folder where I copied/pasted
    the voices-download folder. Pressed the three dots there, select, checked the folder, the three dots again and
    then "move" and moved the folder to the .here-maps folder in 3.

    I used ES File Explorer to show the hidden files on the phone.

    Hope I didn't confuse everyone in the OP but it is not just for the Samsung S5 Android phone only but for ALL Android phones. If you can figure out how to show all hidden files on your computer or move the file just using your phone, then you'll be pleasantly pleased because it gives the user TTS on his phone.
    To show hidden files on PC: Control Panel > Folder Options > View, then select radio button for 'Show hidden files, folders and drives' and uncheck 'Hide protected operating system files' or similar, depending on your OS. Example:

    I tried this on my Android 5.0 Lollipop phone. When I connect my phone to computer, the file browser shows the hidden folder ".here-maps". So I just copied "en-US_female_PLUS_TTS", "en-US_female_TTS", and "en-US_tts" to the phone. Normal voice works fine. But Hi-Fi voice only works if I switched the voice.

    Hello,

    I installed an old version of HERE (version 1.0.220 beta) and I recovered HERE's TTS HiFi voices. I have several voices: en-US (Female), fr-FR (Standard Basics), fr-FR (HiFi male), fr-FR (HiFi female).

    With the new dated upgrade, it appears that HERE with their immature wisdom have blocked the Android TTS from working. At least that's been my experience. Why they have done that is beyond my thinking. Nothing has been changed or modified. If it still works for you, please post how and the version you're using. Thanks.

    EDIT: OK, got it back. Used this earlier .apk [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Do not update the program but you can update the maps through the program itself.
