Under accessibility, speech, voices, select Siri female and the preview is the new Siri but when you highlight text in safari select speak and it’s the old Siri.

Also still pronounces some words or phrases in another language not English.

Is anyone getting the new Siri voice with speak selection?

I reported this early in the beta cycle and it got marked as a duplicate. Still there, as you say.

Still there. Still pissing me off to no end. This cannot be that hard to fix. I have reported this various times.

Whenever I hear Apple is slipping it is these things that I think of... and having to restart my iPhone because it is unresponsive. Seriously, someone hire someone for quality control or some more programmers.

Did they finally fix this in the latest beta? This is getting ridiculous. I thought Apple was all about accessibility?

I thought I would never say this but if they keep this up together with all the other ridiculous things they’ve been doing lately, I am going to take a good look at what Google is offering. This is just getting really sad.
