My point, though, is that the Russian voice pronounces English words correctly, as opposed to other voices, which apply the pronunciation rules of their languages, so that, for example:

"Let's go crazy. Let's get nuts."

is pronounced by the Spanish voice as something like:

"Let esse go krathi. Let esse khet noots."

and:

"My hovercraft is full of eels."

in the Hungarian voice sounds like:

"Mee hovairtsroft ish fool off e-elsh."
