    It's good to see Annouce caller ID feature is back in W10M AU. But in spite on using voice selected in "Speech" setting, caller ID always announce names in a male voice.

    Anyone knows how it can be changed?

    My language + Region selected is --> English (United States)

    Rebooting has happened numerous time from the moment I have enabled it. So I don't think that's a problem.

    Cortana is working fine. All other things including incoming messages are in female voice. Problem is just with Caller ID Announcer.

    Same for me.
    One thing that is not clear for me is that Caller ID Announcer works only with headset or with bluetooth audio connection (but that is Cortana setting.....)
    Anyone have Caller ID working whit phone speaker?

    Check to see if female is selected under voice.
