    I'm probably not the only one having autovoice set up to respond to rec failed and no match events, so that it responds via TTS.

    What TTS services are you using for this?

    I'm using Ivona and I'm pretty amazed by how natural it sounds.

    Yeah, I found Ivona to be the most natural :)

    Yeah Ivona is the best for me as well. It just sounds the best even though Tasker sometimes gives me an error trying to use Ivona o_O

    Let me guess, are you using Jelly Bean? There was a huge issue with Tasker, TTS, and Jelly Bean.... sometimes the TTS would fail due to an error. I had to live with this for a long time until I finally got off Jelly Bean. I did find a permanent solution though, download the official Google Text-To-Speech APK from the Google Play store and use that. Since it is a Google Voice, I never once had it error. Granted it doesn't sound as good as the Ivona voice, but at least it wont give you an error anymore.

    Well I'm running Kitkat and I sometimes have the issue (very rarely, I can live with it) . Seems like Android kicks Ivona out of the ram because it gets to full (2GB is just not even close to enough). Using the default Google Voice is not an option because it sounds so chappy in German that I'd rather not use any TTS at all.

    Wow, first I have heard of TTS giving an error on KK. Still, I think its better than the default voice on Android.
