Allow option to use device's TTS voice synthesis
The Waze Android client has a decent sounding voice, but Android users can install 3rd party TTS apps. Please give us the option to choose to use the Android Text To Speech synthesis instead.
I also prefer my phone's TTS (Ivona). It's why I don't use Waze exlusively. I don't really care much for "Samantha"
I have been waiting for an upgrade like this as long as I have Waze. The female voice in Waze is snarky. It offers "UK" voices, but they speak with an American accent. Argh - I second this request: please give us the option to choose to use the Android Text to Speech synthesis instead!

This is one of the biggest feature requests for me.
The turn by turn voice in google maps is far superior and keeps me coming back to that app.
By just utilizing android's built in TTS systems, waze could get that voice as well.
Agreed. I miss the Ivona voice I use for GMaps
SVOX ought sell voices sideload commented
If that allows use of premium SVOX
HOWEVER ONLY AFTER svox can be bothered to sell voices outside android market -- not everyone is permitted to use Gmail
