    Is cortana racist? It does only work when I set my region, language and speech to United States. When I had all my settings to Canada, it didn't work at all. What's up with that?

    That would be nationalist, not racist. There's more than one race in the U.S. & Canada, LOL.

    She just hasn't been fine tuned for most other regions yet. You know dialect, languages, etc.

    Edit-added Canada

    I'm not sure. But when I turned on my front facing camera, she called me a "cracker." What's up with that?

    Yeah, Canadian isn't a race. Boston marathon, now that was a race.

    I believe it's called "Northern Montana." At least that's what I learned watching The Robinsons.

    Cortana is a Beta in the US and an Alpha in Canada... US gets in under a lower OS version number. You must not be on Preview for Developers.

    Check these charts for requirements.

    Cortana est une version Bta aux tats-Unis et un Alpha au Canada... U.S. obtient sous un numro de version d'OS infrieur. Il ne faut pas sur l'Aperu pour les dveloppeurs.

    Consultez ces tableaux pour les exigences.

    Cortana has yet to call me a Cracker, much less a WASP. I'm more perturbed at how difficult it is to get her to tell a dirty joke. But that's how we roll.

    Someone should put it into the Microsoft UserVoice to have Cortana, when you tell her, "Tell me a dirty joke", to reply, "A white horse fell in the mud." That was the "dirty" joke when I was a kid.

    People seem to forget that Cortana is STILL beta software.... As already pointed out, it is still being 'fine tuned'.

    What works best for me, is to completely turn off Cortana all together. That way all problems are gone... Aaaaahhhh!!!!

    Ha! Got the same answer on my Lumia with 8.1. On my tablet with Win 10, Hey Cortana also came back with "A circle may be infinite, but my answers are not."

    I can't see the attachment... You may have put your IMEI on the screen and the pic got removed. There should have been 3 screen shots in any case; Region, Language and Speech. Seems you only posted one pic so I would not have been able to tell what was off anyway.

    Is there a reason YOU can't follow the charts I linked? Here it is in a screen capture:

    capture.jpg

    If you want Cortana as a US Beta, Region must be United States, Language must be English (United States) and Speech must be Female + English (United States).

    ALSO... In Language, hold down on English (United States) > tap "move to the top" from the popup menu. The appropriate Language for these settings MUST be at the top of your list of Languages...
