Default Briefing Voice mis-pronounces everything

Anybody else have an issue with the Briefing Voice sounding like she has a third-grade reading level? Nav voice sounds fine, but when I use the briefing alarm, the voice mis-pronounces almost every word, and runs words together. It's to the point now where I find it annoying, but it's funny enough that I still use the briefing alarm, just to hear how it's going to pronounce things.

Update: I have the Verizon version of the phone. Thought I would include that info, as the different carriers seem to vary greatly.

You can always change it.
Settings / Language and input / Text-to-speech output

Under Google you can change the speed or select 1 of 6 languages

Under Samsung you can change the speed, select 1 of 8 languages, and 1 of 7 voice effects (normal, deep, robot, helium gas, etc.)

Just remember these setting are for any of the S3 Voice to text sounds. Driving directions under nav, driving mode announcements, etc. will use the same voice.
