I've tried nuance for one day (just simple time announcement and weather forecast), and it's really good compared with offline Google TTS. However, I feel that the voices are a bit "grainy" (sorry I don't know how to describe it) and not as bright/cheerful as Google TTS. The pitch can be increased, but when combined with the "grainy" part, it's a bit strange (maybe because I've used to the clear voice of Google TTS)

For me, it is the vice versa. I have been accustomed to VocalizerEx2. Using Google TTS still sound robotic to me. The sound is quite monotone compared to VocalizerEx2, which is more expressive.

It seems like Google TTS network synthesis is working normally now.

Maybe the new version now reflect the new quotas here :
https://cloud.google.com/text-to-speech/quotas
There is limit 5000 chars per request, max 300 requests per minute and 150.000 chars per minute. Whenever any one of these is reached, error raised. The limitation can still change from time to time.

I personally use vocalizerEx2 for long time already (offline). You can download it from xda, follow the instruction from OP to download and install the voices.

The voice is much better than google TTS, but of course now have been surpassed by google Wavenet. Google wavenet now is still more expensive. Hopefully someone will make the offline version of the wavenet in the future.

But Ivona doesn't have any asian language voices. While vocalizer has several of those languages.
