    Just wondering if there are any Female British voices available that have US terminology and US measurements? I searched around here a bit but didn't come across anything.

    An Elizabeth Hurley voice would be great, lol.

    What do you mean by US terminology? - I have a few female voices that I can send over to you if you PM me your e-mail address, these voices are, and always have been free for people to use.

    Liz Whitaker
    Vicki Archer

    They are UK based and to be honest I use the Liz voice by default on most of my non TTS equipped devices as I finds its so clear and easy to understand - Mike

    In which case I don't know of any English voices with an American "twang" - whats the word you use for roundabout as thats different isn't it?

    Still applies though if anyone wants a copy of the free voices mentioned above send me your e-mail by PM and I will send them over - Mike

    I actually think 'roundabout' is the proper North American term, Mike. They just aren't nearly as common here as in Europe and elsewhere.

    I hear roundabout isn't consistently used throughout the US. In the northeast it's called "rotary".

    Just like East Coast = Highway, West Coast = Freeway
