Siri works perfectly other than the fact she won't speak. I can trigger Siri through Hey Siri or holding the home button but zero audio. No audio to start her or when she replies. I'm on 10.3.2 beta but I didn't see anything in the beta thread about this. I haven't used siri in a few days so I'm not sure how new it is. Her voice also doesn't work in maps. Music, movies, podcasts etc. all work. I've already checked settings and audio for Siri is set to always. I've done a restore with no luck as well.

Any suggestions?

Have you tried changing the volume while Siri is activated--basically making sure that the volume for Siri is up?

Yep. Tried everything it seems. Apple is telling me to do a restore and set up as new, losing all my stuff. :(

Nope. No audio no matter what I do.
Quite odd. Have you also tried changing the language related settings for Siri--picking male vs. female, changing from US English to UK English or some other ones?

Siri isn't set to respond when launched, but when the volume is up for Siri it should speak when you ask it something.

I've tried multiple languages/voices etc.

is your phone in do not disturb mode, or is the ring/silent switch set to silent?
It is but I tried it with DND off, volume cranked up, and silent switch off. I have Siri audio set to always so it should even work in DND. No dice.

I'll probably just live with Siri not talking for now. I don't want to have to set up everything again. I'll keep messing around and hopefully a random action or new beta will fix it haha
