It changes that voice as well. They're the same source.Thanks Matttye but I am not talking about Siri, incidently mine is on a French male voice and I'm OK with that. I'm asking about the voice on the MAPS App that you hear when you ask directions between 2 sites and then press start and a voice guides you, a Sat Nav, so to speak. It is this voice that I'm trying to change.
Aaargh! it did not work, but thanksNot sure on this one but try
Settings > General > Accessibility > Voice Over > Langauges & Dialects > Add New Language > ...
I know this can be done to manually activate the high quality siri voice (when you first turn it on and you get that underwater siri it takes a while for it to download the voices)
May be worth a punt?
Wow, thanks, so how did you originally set your iPhone to have an English voice (male? Female?) on Maps? Please tell me and I shall tryI'm in the UK but changed my Siri voice to Canadian but maps directions was still UK English which I though was odd. Maybe maps just uses the default voice for the locale settings of the iPhone?
this:There is a way to do it and I've done it. But can I remember how to do it...
I seem to recall changing any localisation setting to US. I got it from a poster on this forum and I'll try to dig out the post.
Settings > General > International > Voice Control
Hi,Settings > General > International > Voice Control
You're definitely looking in General > International > Voice Control and not General > Siri > Language?Hi,
My current configuration is Siri with a French male voice and somehow I get Maps with an American female voice. I'm trying to get the voice in Maps to speak with a UK accent. (Male or female, I don't care). It would also be ok if it spoke to me in a French voice.
Even if I change my French Siri voice to female, it does not change my Maps voice, It always stays fixed to US female.
Wow, THANKS!If you want to keep the English text on your phone, go with British English as the language there. The Maps voice will change to British and your Siri will remain French. The text on your iPhone will be slightly different in a few places compared to the default (US) English, as it'll now be British, but shouldn't be a problem.
