    What I am suggesting is that perhaps you need to go into the Aura settings and install the TTS voice data so that it can talk to you the same way as your TV?

    How is this achieved?

    I couldn't specifically tell you, I don't have an Aura.
    But as I mentioned previously, in normal Android it is achieved from the Accessibility settings. In there you can choose the language, voice etc.
    If those settings are hidden on the Aura, there are various apps on the PlayStore that can hopefully be used to reveal the settings that Humax do not want you to see.
    Just search "hidden settings" on the PlayStore.

    Tip from Barry - I am happy with the on screen answers to questions.

    Device Preferences - Accessibility - Talkback.

    I have just tried Talkback, but found it to be incredibly annoying, as it repeats everything that you do, including all menu items. It does however get the google assistant voice to work. Perhaps there is another way to do it without Talkback? It's not something that I will ever use, so won't be wasting any more time with it.

    Horses for courses I suppose. Example - I hate the none speaking weather forecast plastered on the screen. I much prefer "Hey Google, what's the weather for tomorrow" and I receive it via the spoken word.

    With the aura, there is no need to say "Hey Google".

    Maybe not, but Google isn't going to answer me. It's fortunate I have the proper Google Assistant on the LG plus I have the Amazon Echo, so not the end of the world. I just think Humax has possibly missed a trick. Other than that I'm really pleased with the Aura.

    I was somewhat put off by the incredibly annoying reference.

    I tried the Talkback option. You weren't kidding when you said it was blooming annoying and that's after I disabled most options.
