Voices are in the downloaded firmware. No matter what is on camera, update will replace them. So if you install firmware with english voices then it will be english.

CN version has less then half the space for sound files than EN version, so we have to decrease sound quality to fit to that space.
I have created a new variant like member Nexter suggested in PM. It has 8bit 16kHz sounds instead of 16bit 8Khz, and it sounds better, and file sizes are almost the same. Also increased volume to a level that no clipping will occur. Link is the same, there is a new file SD_CarDV_1.0.5_16k_en4cn.zip with updated sound files.
Please refer if it is better, because I will keep this new format for future versions in that case.

Thanks. The voice volume is certainly louder now. However still need some tweaks to increase clarity. Maybe higher pitch voice.

These are factory sounds from original EN firmware. But those files were nearly double the size which fits to CN firmware. Had to decrease quality to reduce file sizes. If you want factory sounds then this is your firmware. Otherwise try lisabon_Q3 version, that is with different tts voice. Or you can make own version with own sounds, instructions linked in post #81.
One addition, you can also make 16000 Hz, 8 bit unsigned PCM, 1 channel wav which is also 128Kbps, more understandable, and camera plays that format as well.
Space for ALL the wavs is little more than 1.5MB. In CN firmware 1.0.5 partition 1 is little bigger, it ends at 0x748fff instead of 0x72fff, that is 102400 bytes more, nearly 1.7MB, so it has few seconds more space for speech than previous versions.

And for those who are interested, here are the chinese commands:-

1. wo yao pai zhao(我要拍照)I want to take photo
Finally I can take photo with CN camera! Found lisabon_Q3's post at 4pda about sound commands. And if I say command like he wrote: "Во й(е|я) п(х)айячао" it takes photo! Previously I said like "п(х)айчао" but that extra "я" really helped!

Thanks a lot for your help and guidance. My new english 70mai unit arrived today and the voice is less loud when compares to chinese voice. The english voice has lower tone whereas the chinese voice has higher tone and more clarity. Maybe it is the way chinese words are pronounced and stressed that sound so clear to my ears. Anyways, english or chinese voice doesn't really pose any big problem operating and using the dashcam.

I have a problem with my Chinese 70Mai: after installing @lisabon_Q3 firmware (FW 1.0.4 CNtoEN & 1.0.5 CNtoEN) i have no sound on my movies. I also activated sound recording using command "3. da kai lu yin(打开录音) Turn on voice recording ", but recorded movies still have no sound. Can someone post a screenshot with proper settings in 70Mai Dashcam app? I am thinking to revert to original CN 1.0.3 firmware

Hi all,
I have by mistake bought a 70mai Chinese version and have updated the firmware to the English version 1.0.4. Everything works in English except that the voice commands do not work. I get no response when I speak the commands. Can anyone help me to fix this? Thanks for any advice..

As far as im aware, there's no way to get English voice commands on Chinese version, all what you can get are English announcements.

Thanks for this. I successfully updated my CN version to this. Though, I found an oddity. After the event recording, it says "microphone is off" instead of "event recording finished/done".

I'm fine with the non-english voice control. I only need to tap a bit roughly the dashcam to start the event recording.

Thank you, indeed, the “end of emergency recording” voice file was a copy of the “microphone off” voice file. The same was in version 1.0.5 :) Now everything should be right. Updated the file in this post.

Pls download again:

Best Regards,
Does your sound recording turn off while the DVR is running? Try to disable voice control in the settings through the application.

I put the firmware in SD-Card root folder, plugged in the usb-cable and put the device on. No Update.
No, this is the topic of the 70mai smart recorder:

the firmware from it will not work for you

Bricked my CN 70mai during firmware flash. I had not enough time to bother with it, but now desoldered flash chip, reflashed with flash file from telegram, and camera living again. :)
So, tried my 1.0.6 en4cn version, and it is working, so uploaded to my drives.

So does hungarian songs.:)
Upgrade to 1.0.6ww and you can turn off voice recognition.
But my EN camera also switches wifi and take photos randomly. So I like my CN camera better, it works as intended, and i can control it with chinese commands.
