  1. I have an S5 with OS 6.0.1. I've set up a list of priority senders for text to voice via language and input. There is one person for which this will not work. I have deleted her and re added her to the list, deleted and re added her to contacts, and am just running out of ideas. It's my daughter and she lives overseas. Help!
