    Cortana has been fully updated and was working great until I accessed an app on my Nokia Lumia Icon "HERE Drive". The setup of that application took me to the voice downloads (didn't need to download anything) and it had the English (United States) already selected. With this being a new phone, I was curious about the app...
    However, after setting up this app I have noticed that Cortana's Voice is now the terrible machine language female voice and no longer the "Updated Cortana" voice. Does anyone know how I can get Cortana's voice restored for Cortana? I understand that Cortana's voice will not work with other apps, but not it's not working for the Cortana app.
    Using Cortana went from having normal human tone responses to sounding like Siri. It's driving me insane! Does anyone have any suggestions to reset Cortana's voice for the Cortana App? Thanks in advance!!

    Same here, ask her to do an impression and check her response.
    She just says my precious in a robotic voice. Don't know what's wrong :|

    I guess I can make the question easier: How do I get the Jen Taylor "Cortana" voice BACK? It was working, now it is the robot voice.

    So far the issue has been reported to a few others via Twitter. We are all hoping to get answers soon on the issue. It might work fine for some, but at least I'm not alone. I'll post back here if they get back to us with a solution!

    I'm having the same problem since last morning, don't try the following:

    - Remove all the data from Cortana (local data and cloud data)
    - Soft Reset your phone.
    - Hard Reset your phone.
    - Restore the phone to WP8 then reinstall WP8.1 using Nokia Software Recover Tool

    I tried all of these, the problem persists which means that the problem is NOT from our phone but rather from Microsoft's servers. They need to find out what the problem is and fix it. There's NOTHING that gets in Cortana's way since 'she' sounded like Siri even after the complete resofting of the phone so, software incompatibilities are pretty much out of the question.

    Agreed. All they are doing right now is saying that they don't see any problems.

    I noticed the same problem just now. Considering it's happening to others it has to be a server-side issue. My guess is they were updating and possibly switched something off in the process. Hopefully it sorts itself out in a day or so.

    Come on guys! Its just her time of the month now. She doesn't have to always be bouncy and chirpy. She is feeling low, am sure in a few days, she will be herself again ;)
