A iOS 12 Bug in BlindFold Games

iOS & iPadOS

Hi everyone, I am not sure if others have also encountered this issue, but I thought I would mention it. Since updating to iOS 12, I have noticed a rather odd glitch when trying to play any of the Blindfold Games. Before updating, in each Blindfold game I had downloaded, I had set it up that Aaron was used to speak when it was my turn and Daniel when it was the oponent's turn. Now after updating to iOS 12, although the settings in each Blindfold games still show these voices to be properly set, when my turn plays, I hear the Siri Female voice instead. It appears I still hhear Daniel, although he seems as his speech rate is a little slower, although that could just be me, I am not hellucinating when I hear Siri Female instead of Aaron's voice.

Now, like I said, I have double checked my custom voices settings in a few of the Blindfold games, and although they are set correctly, when my turn plays out, I am hearing the Siri Female voice and not Aaron's voice.

Is anyone else encountering this issue as well? I plan on sending an email to Marty and hopefully, he'll be able to figure out why this is happening. Thanks!

Try setting your voice to another, save the settings, try a game, then set your voice back to the one that you want, save the settings and see if that fixes the issue.

Make sure the voice you are using is still installed on your device. I have seen some voices disappear after updates in the past, especially the Siri ones.

That is it, the Aaron voice is no longer part of the list in the Blindfold games. Before, while using iOS 11, I never had downloaded the Aaron voice, but yet in the Blindfold games, he was there. Perhaps Apple decided to remove these voices from iOS and that is why they're no longer in the list. That sucks!
