    Hi Paul - This is a bug with the latest build. Dona Sarkar noted as much in the release notes. See below. Hopefully a fix will be out in the next build.

    Cortana’s text to speech capabilities is not working in this build. For example, Cortana won’t be able to read text messages out loud for you, tell jokes, sing, or give verbal prompts.

    Nope! It's everyone on the fast ring. Always read what you're getting into before you download it! I'd imagine some people who are heavily reliant on Cortana for these types of tasks opted to pass on this build.

    Is it possible that this could be the reason why "Hey Corntana" is not working?

    IMO if you are on Insider for correct reasons, testing and reporting, this would have been common knowledge because the release notes would have been read. Just sayin... another example. Lock the program, Dona, until there is a better track record and better general public perception of the platform before its re-opened to those that need to keep up with the Jones'.

    I'm still able to bring up Cortana with 'Hey Cortana'. She just doesn't say anything. I can still give commands, make reminder notes, do searches, etc...

    You may need to retrain it. It's working fine for me with my Lumia Icon.
