Having used eloquence on another phone, I find it cuts through traffic and other background noise where as Samantha, listenable as she is, cannot compte with background noise as well.

You are not the only one wining about the need for male voices on the OS 
devices. I am also hearing impaired and preferrer male voices over female. I 
would rather listen to eloquence than synthetic female voices.

Hi all, subject says it all. Because of this I have emailed apple a few times 
about this question and get the basic answer thanks for your comment we will 
forward it onto the right team. I am saying this cos I am hearing in pared as 
well as being blind and would need to rely on voiceover and I got an ipod touch 
a couple of years ago and couldn't get on with it cos of the female voices. 
Does anyone else feel this way or am I the only one wining about it. LOL Of 
course no offence to our female counterparts but I simply understand male 
voices for screenreaders better than female voices.
What do you all think?
