    Hi all, I've changed my Google Maps app to read me directions in UK English since I like the voice. It turns out that dad can't understand it, thus can't stand it. I tried to change it back to US English, but couldn't find that option, either in the app or the help files.
    A) how do you change that setting?
    B) how'd you find that answer?
    Thanks, Jeff

    From the home screen try: menu, settings, text-to-speech. Then you can change the spoken language. Not sure if it changes it in maps, but I think it should. HTH!
