I assume you have your iPhone in a different language and I don’t think there is a way. because I have tried making Tessa my default voice but couldn’t do it.

To switch to Alex for your voiceover voice, go to settings.
Go to general, accessibility.
Double tap on voiceover.
Swipe over to speech under voiceover and and go into it .
There was an option called voice.
It’ll display Voice you have selected right now.
Double tap to go into it.
A list of voices will appear from here, you can download the Alex voice.
It is under the US English Heading.
He is about 870 MB in size, One of the largest. to the right of each voice, there is a download button. If you’ve already downloaded it, then select Alex from the list, and he will be your default.
