Default [Guide] Text-To-Speech (TTS) in (almost) any language

First of all, sorry for my english. I know thats not so good, but I think you can understand it

In this guide I'll teach how to install almost any TTS language (non-robotic) so your device can read things in your native language without problems.

1) Plug your device on computer and create a folder named VocalizerEx
2) Download and install on your device the attached APK
3) Visit this website and download your language. It will be better if you download Premium High
3) Rename that file adding .zip at the end and open it
4) Extract all files and folders of the zip to this folder (created on Step 1)
(Now you can unplug your device)
5) On your device, go to Settings > Language and Input > Text-to-speech output and then select VocalizerEx TTS

Done, now your device speaks your language !

Please, hit THANKS if it helped you

Sorry, but it didn't work on AOSB KitKat.

I have several folder (dun, eng, frf, ged, ...) in the ExtSdCard\VocalizerEx folder, installed the APK.

I can select VocalizerEx TTS in the text output, but in the settings the language selection is disabled.
So, I tried to change the Voice data folder in the settings to the folder I put the voices in. Still, it didn't work, even after selecting another engine and back to reinitialize the VocalizerEx TTS engine.

Can anyone help me with this?

Edit: Got it working, somehow the appplication doesn't look for the correct folder, despite the possibility to put the voice data on SD card.

Now I have to get iGo with Dutch TTS voice going with this - strange thing is that iGo ONLY works when the Google TTS engine with English language is selected... If not, there is no way to select a TTS voice in iGo.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (WW), AOSB 1.3.0 , PhilZ Touch 6, CyanogenMod 11.2.0, Android KitKat version 4.4.2
HTC One X (WW) CWM, ViperX ROM - broken screen
ASUS TF300T (WW, Unlocked, CWM, Rooted JB OTA)
HTC Touch HD 2 T8585 (flashed to Android)
Hitting 'thanks' is completely free and friendly!
