Nokia has released a new application that lets you record your own voice navigation instructions for Ovi Maps.
The Own Voice app, which is available as a free download from the Ovi Store, lets a user create a new voice pack. The application takes a user through each of the 53 required commands. When a user is done recording, he/she can simply save and the voice pack is uploaded to the Own Voice website.
With 10 million downloads of Ovi Maps already on devices, there’s sure to be no shortage of voices to choose from. The app lets you browse new voice packs by popularity and by recommendation (though you can also browse all voice packs).
Own Voice has the ability to share voice packs via Facebook and Twitter and if you find one you really like (or hate) then you can rate it. Voice packs from leading Aussie racing drivers Jamie Whincup and Craig Lowndes will also be available for download soon.
Own Voice for Ovi Maps is available only in English and is compatible with all Nokia devices which support the new version of Ovi Maps (3.03). The Own Voice app is available today as a free download from the Ovi Store.
