The voice
« on: August 03, 2014, 02:24:04 PM »
I hope I am posting in the correct location but could not find an Off Topic forum. A number of years ago there was an option to have a different voice on Avast. That voice was a "Pirate" that could replace the woman's voice and if my memory serves me correctly (often does not these days) was a special anniversary of Avast.
Now I know that in the whole scheme of things this is trivial but is it still possible to change the woman's voice for the Pirates voice?
Clearly no need for a quick answer but interested nonetheless.

Sure, select Pirate Talk as language.

For anyone else wanting to install the "Pirate voice" this was my experience.
On following the above instructions and selecting Pirate voice to install nothing happened. I tried this both on my Win 8.1 laptop and my Win XP laptop
In fact I tried it several times without success.
Although my install was in English I saw that "English" was not ticked on the list of installed languages.
I therefore ticked that and the Pirate voice options and selected to install both.
That then did install them and selecting "Pirate voice" from the "Appearance" menu and all is now working.
Avast my hearties.
