Hi Barry, may I ask what voice you use with voice-over?

Coincidentally, yesterday evening, my phone did similar.  It didn't so much 
change to the default voice, but Siri got weaker and weaker, as if the signal 
wasn't getting through properly.  I did a soft reset and it sorted it out for 
now, but this does point to a software glitch.

Hi Barry,

A good guess but no, I think I have about 200 GB free memory. When this Siri 
voice disappearance episode happened I went into VoiceOver Speech settings, 
the status of both Siri female UK and US showed as if they have not been 
downloaded, and when I tapped on them nothing happened and I could not select 
either of them. Other voices did not suffer during those episodes whether 
they were high or low quality and I was able to select them, and that 
included the Siri male UK voice.

Regards,

Amro

How much memory have you left on your iPhone, Amro?  My gut instinct is that 
there isn't quite enough to  run the enhanced Siri voice, so it defaults to 
the un-enhanced.  If you're nearly maxed out, try deleting an app or two and 
see if that sorts it.

Cheers

Hi all,

Sorry about the title but thought that would draw your attention.

Before I go through the hassle of reinstalling my iPhone’s software I 
thought I’d check if anyone else is having this below oddity or a similar 
one.

I use Siri female UK as my VoiceOver voice. Since installing iOS 13.4.1, 
Siri voice has twice disappeared at random and was replaced by the default 
voice of VoiceOver. The disappearance lasts for a short while, and then Siri 
female voice comes back online at will! And no, a soft reset doesn’t solve 
the problem; I can only sit tight until Siri finishes her coffee break and 
comes back on.

So, my question is, has anyone seen a similar behaviour on their iPhone?
I’m trying to figure out if this is the doing of the new version of iOS and 
I just need to wait for the next update, or if it is the actual software on 
my iPhone that developed a glitch and it needs a fresh software install.

Regards,

Amro
