Malaysian Motorsport Athlete Leona Chin recently casted her voice on popular Mapping and Navigation application, Waze.
Leona was selected to be part of Waze’s voice options, as part of Waze’s initiatives to allow users to record their own voice to use as navigational guides.
Now, Wazers are able to select Leona’s voice to navigate about. Leona’s navigation voice prompts are positively cheerful and delightful, which will surely help put drivers
in a good mood as she informs about traffic conditions while offering drivers practical safety tips and reminders such as watching their speed and ensuring their seatbelts are on.
Waze’s new voice Leona said, “When it comes to motorsports, I think everyone believes it is all about speed, but the truth is, as motorsport athletes, we value safety above all else. Even before we hit the track, we have to prepare ourselves including always having the necessary safety gear. And when we are racing on the track, we have to constantly remain alert of other drivers.”
Waze’s country manager Kelvin Sim added, “We are very excited to have Leona’s voice available in-app for all to use. Both safety and fun have always been important to Waze, so we thought that someone with a bubbly personality and who understands driving well would be a suitable choice to share safety reminders in a fun way.”
Waze users can now download Leona’s voice, simple and fast! Go to Menu, tap settings, then tap Voice & Sound, Waze Voice and select English UK – Leona Chin.
