There was a problem with the local vocal, so it was temporarily disabled. Should return some time next week.
Good to know! :)

Will the 30% or the 16% LDL be used on the IS2? Or will there be no LDL at all? :dunno:

Also, on this video there is an "hour-by-hour" forecast but on another there is a "day planner." Are both being used? :unsure:

Hmm, I'm missing Allen Jackson. :cry: Jim is speaking a little too fast and is "choppy." Interesting how the radar is no longer narrated. Maybe this is a bug or something.

Also, the Local Forecast screen no longer has text. Can someone please confirm this? Is this a new permanent change? :unsure:

Could the choppiness of the Vocal Local be caused from the beta version? :hmm: Just wondering.

Why does Jim sound so awkward? His voice is so deep too like he's a robot or depressed or something.

Yeah, that's kind of what I was trying to say when I said "choppy." :thinking: There is one point where his voice sounds almost like it is automated or something. :blink: Maybe, as TWCDude said, it has something to do with the beta.

Allen's voice did sound more deeper and robotic when the IS debuted than it does now.

A bit better than Allen Jackson since I can hear the music during narration perfectly.

Well you do have to realize he was reading a whole bunch of phrases and going down a list. If he happened to start changing the tone slightly by accident it was more noticeable when the parts were pieced together.
Also, the Local Forecast screen no longer has text. Can someone please confirm this? Is this a new permanent change? :unsure:
While I can not confirm I assume if the forecast can be properly narrated then it is not shown, if there is an error or it can't the text will show.

The thing about the no text local forecast pages is TWC wants the IS2 to attract the Cable Companies by showing the weather graphics off.

there will most likely be 2 different schemes the IS2 will use

1. The Text based Local Forecast we see now on the Domestic IS1

2. The Graphics based Local Forecast that is currently in the BETA mode.
