TTS with DLNA Wifi Speaker and MediaRenderer

I have a DLNA wifi speaker by Jam. I installed the MediaRenderer SmartApp. When I sent messages to the speaker to play using TTS, the voice isn’t that great. Does anyone know if there is a way to change the spoken voice?

I believe that Big Talker can use different voices…


Is BigTalker like MediaRenderer? Right now my WiFi speaker is added via MediaRenderer. Do I have to keep that and then use BigTalker? or will BigTalker be able to detect the DLNA wifi speaker like MediaRenderer did?

You keep media renderer and use Big Talker to play messages through the speakers

MediaRender drives the device(s). BigTalker sends commands to MediaRenderer to speak phrases which MediaRenderer then processes and sends on to the physical devices.

Contact Opens > BigTalker processes logic and your desired phrase then sends it to your configured device handler (MediaRenderer) > MediaRender processes the commands to speak received from BigTalker and sends whatever commands are needed to cause the physicial device to load the audio and play it.
