    I am from India. Yesterday I installed Windows phone 8.1 GDR 1 update through preview program. I also made settings to Run Cortana alpha version

    Lumia 720
    Region: India
    Language: English UK
    Speech Recognition: English UK
    Internet: On
    Location Services: On
    Bluetooth: Off
    No Headset is plugged in.

    When I hold Search soft key it throws error "Sorry, Speech failed to start, try again later"
    When I start Cortana from Main menu. It displays welcome screen and then on tapping Mic icon throws same error.

    Note: Few days back I had started Cortana by changing my Region to US and Language to English US.

    Also MS already knows about this issue and will apparently fix it after the GDR1 updates have finished

    yes, I went through thread.

    Default speech software works fine. (location is off and internet is on / off )

    But when I start Cortana through menu (location is on, internet is on), it shows welcome screen and on tapping Mic icon it throws above error. hope it will get resolved soon. :)
