Bing Translator for WP8 - gender of spoken voice RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using speech translation feature of Bing Translator for Windows Phone 8. I am a male English speaker. When playing the translation (in Spanish, BTW) the spoken voice is female (disconcerting). And when a female English speaker plays her Spanish translation, the spoken voice is male!!!!

    Shouldn't this be male>male and female>female? I've looked for user settings in the OS >Settings>Speech as well as the apps settings. Nothing. Is this a bug, or did I miss a setting?
