Until my update to #KitKat , the voice directions in Google maps honored the voice speed accessibility setting. I want my phone to talk fast. Now when it speaks navigation directions at me it is excruciatingly slow.

Who thought it was a good idea to override the accessibility settings anyway? Duh.

It seems not to take effect right away. Yesterday it was slow (what some might call normal); today, with no further adjustments, the voice speed adjustment in accessibility has taken effect and directions again are spoken very quickly.

It is inconsistent. In one trip today, some instructions were slow and some were fast, without even touching the phone between. Flaky.
