Hi,

By popular demand we may add an IVONA voice to Ubi. Visit http://www.ivona.com/ and listen to some of the voices and make your choice!

Very happy for Salli or Kendra (if the vote goes that way), but British Amy gets my vote for sounding so classy and a little more natural (very calming as well).

I personally like Salli. Sounds more natural, all the other voices in particular the male voices seemed very mechanical

Salli wins it for me.

Salli and Amy sound hot. I would like to meet them. My daughter though votes for the chipmunk voice "3,000 times"

I really like Raveena's voice. It's pretty exotic and sexy!

Looking over the other English voices. I like all the Voice for England. And don't mind the voice for English (INDIA) either.

I'm surprised no one likes Kendra! It was a bit of an argument internally to get Kendra. She has a calm but authoritative voice.

Looks like Sally's winning. I like Amy a bit more though. But English, British, Brian has a great voice which sounds very natural and intelligent. A little bit of Doctor Who.

I think "authoritative" is the problem - I want to feel like my Ubi is friendly and there to do my bidding, not there to boss me around.

(I for one welcome our new Ubi overlords...)

On this basis I think Salli wins - not too much of an American "twang" like some of the other voices (no offence intended - just coming from an Aussie ear) and a nice pleasant voice which relaxes me rather than putting me on edge.

I also like the English, British - Brian voice - he sounds like my imaginary butler.
