Siri male bug
Well nice people this morning, I restarted my iPhone XS which is using iOS unlucky 13,2 and he disappear, I use siri male as my default voiceover but now siri female is default and he is not even in the rodar. I even went to accessibility and voiceover and speech and selected male siri and it shows it is selected but the voice does not work. Also regarding accessibility and the Supreme Court. There are many webpages that for years had not been accessible and has not responded to request by the blind community. Now at lease they are aware and have the opportunity to address this issues. Making light of the issue and saying that now everybody will be suing companies is not taking the issue seriously.
Well this is very strange after 10 minutes or more, I went to check on the rotor just to see and he is back. Before I turn VO off and on she show up. I looks like it was fix. I am crossing my finger. Strange. I wander will happen when I restart my iPhone. October 31 is not here yet and I already having ghost.
I'm having the same issue.
I wanted to try the UK siri male voice to see if it's changed at all but I can't seam to download it.
I'm using the US Siri voice and it's great!
Haha, IPhone ghosts are scary :p
