I love the new voice. Absolutely love it. It felt like Zoë immediately. I could tell that it wasn't the original voice, but it didn't bother me.

I avoided all spoilers in the weeks leading up to release so I was quite startled when I first heard the new voice actress, but she quickly grew on me. She pulls off Zoë's new-found sass perfectly.

I'm going to be honest with you, I'm having the opposite experiences. I was iffy, and then she started to grow on me, but by the end of Chapter One I was really into Zoe's new voice. I

 

Obviously this is totally one of those subjective / opinion things. So I'm not asking anyone to agree with me. Just saying that New!Zoe definitely feels like Zoe to me. 

Me too, I prefer New-Zoë :)

Nailed it, definitely not like Ellie, but awesomely different. Simply adore deep voices. Sooo, what's her name?

Although the change of voice was driven by real-world practicalities (I've heard of these things - no likey!) there is a thematic justification for the bolder phrasing which I really appreciated when she was mulling over her choices in chapter 1. Which then influenced how I thought such a character would react. So, well played!

I'm really liking the new voice actress.  Zoe's grown up a bit, and the new voice acting brings that across, I think.

 

The dialogue writing is quite possibly the best I've seen in a video game, and she pushes it over the top, IMHO.

The new voice actress is brilliant. I won't compare old Zoe with new Zoe, they are both awesome and changing the VA didn't bother me at all. I even prefer the huskier "New Zoe" Also, I'm curious who the new voice actors are! Can't find their names anywhere.

ah man, I miss Ellie's voice so so so so much.

 

but it's great that Ragnar and the team are super happy with Charlotte. 

I'm still getting used to the new Zoe, she sounds great so far.

The new voice actress is great. I really like her now that I'm used to her voice. But it was sort of disappointing to not be recognizing the Zoe you remember at the beginning.

I like her. :) Granted she sounds a bit posh. Which can be a bit annoying, but then again Zoe was always a bit annoying to me (in a very nice way :P ) so that suits her very very much IMO.

I played TLJ and DF in German, DFC in English, so the voice is new to me anyway. And I like her.

A bit late to the party...

 

I have a superhuman ability to recognise voice actors. If I’m watching an animation, or a TV advert, or a movie, or any kind of voiceover, I can often tell you within a spoken sentence or less who it is, and what else they were in. It works not just for really famous people – anyone can get James Earl Jones – but for ordinary-sounding people too. I can even get disguised voices. It’s an amazing skill that has no value at all.
 
At the weekend my wife was watching “Call The Midwife” on BBC. I was doing my e-mail on my laptop. All of a sudden, my ears pricked up, and I pointed to the TV screen and said “That midwife is Zoe!”. By the end of the episode there was no doubt, it was exactly the same voice, with that slight gravelly quality on some words. I didn’t know the character’s name, so I couldn't get the actress’ name on the credits.
 
I Googled for the voice actor for Zoe in Dreamfall Chapters, and there’s no real results of who it is. It's a surprisingly sparse result. The IMDB page doesn’t list who voices Zoe. I found a link on the DC FAQ which links to a tweet saying "Fantastic #Dreamfall #Chapters VO session at @SideUK today with @Charitchie". When I clicked on the link of her name…the actress I’d just pointed to on the TV screen now appeared on my laptop screen.
 
Charlotte Ritchie is the voice of Zoe in Dreamfall Chapters. Fact!

As far as we know, that's correct.  Nice to hear another confirmation! 

Although just to be clear, it was Ellie Conrad-Leigh in the original Dreamfall.

And why are you not watching Siblings? Unfortunately, it being a little know series in BBC3, there's no way it'll ever make it's way here. Lukily I have... other means...

That ability to detect any voice you have ? Any chance you could extract & bottle it ?
For those like me who can't tell a voice from Adam when the phone rings ;)

So uh, is it just me or is that Lara Croft in Grey's Anatomy?

I did watch about 10 seconds of Siblings and thought that she sounds a lot like Zoë.

Wow I love Call the Midwife but I never put two and two together! Makes sense now that I think about it. Well spotted!
