Re: Delete text
Not sure why you see or hear XML strings in @Voice. Normally they should not be visible nor heard, unless you downloaded some damaged file, or used the "Edit speech" feature under @Voice "Settings" menu, and entered some incorrect speech replacements (if you did, disable them all and try reading aloud again, should work fine).
If you really need to edit your files, please use a dedicated text editing app. @Voice is a READER app, not an EDITOR.
