My baby done left me. Siri American Female has taken a powder.
Posted by: Blankity Blank

Is it something I said?

All the other voices and accents work fine, including Siri American Male. But when set to S/A/F, I get no voice feedback, and it can even crash Siri.

I've recently updated to iOS 13.5.1, but can't swear the two events are contemporaneous. Aside from one other app that's started to throw up out of memory warnings and occasionally crashing, I haven't noticed any other issues.

Ideas?

Have you tried setting it to a different voice, then changing it back. I use the British Female, and it works great.

Still waiting for the Female with French Accent.

I'm running iOS 13.5.1 on my iPhone Xr and Siri American Female works for me. Hope you get it figured out.

Is this just with one device, your 'Phone perhaps?

Have you tried restarting the 'Phone?

Maybe Siri's meeting up with Samantha.

I use only the American female voice.

The British female accent is unpleasant as a digital assistant, to my ears.

I wish she spoke RP.

I love a posh girl.

No joy yet.
  • Tried a restart, but I’ll look up how to do a ‘hard’ restart and try that.
  • Tried switching voices then switching back
  • Tried calling up Siri, then waiting, which normally triggers a voice prompt for a question. I get a text prompt, after which if I ask a question, Siri crashes. (When using SAF, if I don’t wait for a prompt, and just ask a question as soon as Siri starts, it proceeds without crashing, using only text prompts.)
  • Google hasn’t turned up any SAF specific glitches.

I’m really not of a mind to do a nuke and pave for an issue like this. For now, I’m going for the Miss Moneypenny option. I’d rather an Irish lass, but the iOS version is a bit too business school proper to be amusing (or hawt). big grin smiley

I didn’t even know Miss Moneypenny was an option! Listening to BBC Global News Podcast as my daily news driver. May as well move my assistant there, too!

God Save the Queen!

Been on Irish Female for awhile.

It's much improved under iOS 13.

...

With other stuff crashing, my first troubleshooting step would be a force-reboot.

A forced restart and SAF is back.

We’re all fallible. I’ve thanked Miss Moneypenny, given her a tidy severance, and SAF is back at the her station.

Sure, Blankity Blank... we all know you told AF a dirty joke and it took her until now to give you another chance.
