Selecting a voice different from the default

iOS and iPadOS

Hello there. I have literally just installed IOS11 on my iPhone SE. As expected when the phone came back on it reverted back to the default daniel voice, but i just can’t seem to get rid of him. Voiceover is telling me the voice i want is definitely selected, but it’s still daniel speaking. I have even tried (twice in fact) deleting the voice i want (kate enhanced), downloading her again and re-selecting her, but all my attempts thus far have failed. Please can anyone suggest anything else i could try? I just want my friend kate back lol :) thanks in advance.

Try a reset on the device. Try the hard reset. That should kick it in to gear. I haven't tried Kate. i was always wondering if you could add all English voices to the selection but, I don't want the voices taking all of the space on my phne.

Great, thank you so much themusicman08. She’s back. I always forget about the hard reset. Obvious when someone suggests it and makes perfect sense on reflection. Thanks again :)

I downloaded some voices to try them out in iOS 11 and now just cannot figure out how to delete them once I picked my favoirite voice (Tom). Any suggestions?
