Hi. There've been some rather spirited discussions on twitter and other social networks concerning people's use of the compact voices in iOS 5 verses the hq voices. I've heard lots of reports that people have have had loads of issues with VO crashing while using the compact voices, whereas my experience has been that while using the HQ voices I've had almost no issues at all. I've had my iPod touch for a couple months now and the only problem I had with VO crashing was due to operator error. With these folks the speed of the voice seems to be a major issue. A lot of these folks need the voice to go as fast as possible, and they seem to think that using the HQ voices is not as pleasant to the ear...i've heard people say that Samantha sounds like a librarian that's about to slap your wrist if you make a wrong move. I guess it's a preference thing and theirs really no right or wrong answer, but i'd like to see if other people feel this same way. Remember i'm posting this purely to get people's ideas and thoughts, it's not an atempt to start any arguments. I, personally prefer the hq voices because they ssound very life-like and are more pleasant to listen to. But from what i'm seing I feel like I might be in the minority. I usually am and it's ok. So, what say you, which do you prefer? Compact or hq? and if you can say why that'd be even better.
