Hi,
What has happened to the nice sounding American lady who tells us our virus definitions have been updated?

No looks like avast have updated the localisation voice over for it and frankly it is awful. The most harsh voice I have heard in almost ten years of using avast. It has total lack of feeling/continuity (not natural speech, it doesn't flow), plus the wording and grammar of the script is poor.

See http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=143216.msg1038597#msg1038597

avast! 2014 brings a familiar voice to British users

Well it doesn't feel familiar to me, it feels totally false.

There should be more voice recordings for avast. I use the pirate talk cause it's so damn funny. :D It would be great is avast had more of those goofy language supports, maybe something like a Scottish-English recordings of Sean Connery's voice... xDDDDDD Imagining it right now hahahaha it would be awesome :D
