 Replying to [ticket:1103 Jose Icaza]:
 > 1 The activity in Spanish is named "Hablar con Sara" -that's what
 appears on the icon and means Speak with Sara. Sara is a female name.
 However the Robot's name is Alice (just ask *him* ...), and he has a male
 voice... It would be nice if all this is consistent...

 well, ALICE and Sara are not random names
 unfortunately we don't have female voices

 > 2 When the Chat activity is started, it reminds you that you should
 share the activity with whoever you want to chat with. The chat tab on
 Speak however, doesn't. For consistency it should.

 Good catch, will be implemented in v12

 > 3 Children know all about Robots as mechanical creatures, but have no
 notions about "bots". So when I press the robot tab...
 > Expectation: A two-legged robot will show up on the screen!
 > Reality: Not so...
 > However... I don't have a better suggestion unless multi-word tab names
 are used (change voice, change face, chat with Alice, chat with friend)

 For a while(in new UI, in v12), there is icon instead of tab name with
 caption "Ask robot any question" and robot says "Ask me any question" for
 first time. And better suggestions are welcome.

 > 4 When the language of the user interface is changed from English to
 Spanish, Alice reads Spanish questions in English phonetics, until one
 notices that and changes Alice's language

 it could be fixed by adding spanish translation


 To keep consistency, better to create ticket per bug/feature,
 I'm closing this ticket as a notbug, please create new tickets if
 mentioned points need to be implemented in other way.
