Hi, for the headword audio, I can alternate between male and female voice. However, for sentence audio, I only have Apple Mandarin Female. Is it normal? Is there a way to add the male voice as well? (Under the voice submenu, “cycle voices” is checked even though there is only one voice available )


Hi Pierre,

that's because for headwords, real audio recordings of Chinese words are used, but for text, the Text-to-Speech (TTS) system is activated. Pleco offers some excellent TTS voices for about 5 USD; for example, I like the male Qiang voice a lot.

Hope this helps,
