    I updated to iOS 11.3 yesterday, and the voice on my iPhone is now Daniel (Enhanced). What I want though, is a British female voice. I click Settings, General, Accessibility, Voices, English. Next to each voice on the list is the 'download'-symbol. When I click the symbol next to Kate or Serena, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong ?

    Are you talking about the voice for Siri or something else? If for Siri, have you tried the voice settings under Siri's settings?

    Thank you, but I do not yet use Siri, though that may come. I am concerned with the voice of the navigator when I use Maps.

    Might still be worth going through Siri's settings for voice to see if that might have any effect on what you want.

    Could you just give me the path, please, I cannot find the settings for Siri that you mention.

    Just a moment, I think that I have got the answer. Let me just check, and then come back to you.

    Yes, my error was in touching the 'download'-symbol incorrectly, so that the download did not start. I have downloaded Kate, and am now downloading Serena, and shall then make my choice ! Many thanks for your help.

    I have set the voice to Serena Enhanced, but the voice of the navigator in Maps is still that of a man.

    Have you tried changing anything related to Siri? Settings > Siri & Search > Siri Voice

    Yes, I have now changed to what is called simply 'Siri Female.' The voice is quite satisfactory, and it is now used by the navigator in Maps, so Thank You, well done.
