How To Change Voice on Google Translate?
You cannot change the voice as such on Google Translate, but you can change Regional Dialect for the language which will automatically change the voice and modify the voice. Regional Dialect is the reason why you may not understand English when Australians are speaking it, but you can understand English when Americans are using it.
This means people of different regions speak the same language in different dialects or tones. If you do not understand a translated language spoken on Google, you have to change the dialect for that language to that spoken in your country or countries in your continent for better understanding. Therefore, by changing voice on Google Translate, we mean to say changing the regional dialect of a particular language on Google Translate.
