The Siri voice I select won't enable

I was using the female Siri British 1 voice on my MacBook Pro. So today I did a complete system reinstall + Time Machine reinstall; I select British 1 and all I get is some guy. The American voices sound very robotic as well. Whadda I do? Latest Sonoma build.

Did Siri get nerfed?

Did Siri get nerfed?

Well tbh iPhone as a whole got nerfed but I have a 13 pro and it's Kinda weird and new to me that Siri now only gives out bot based commands and we can't even edit the responses it gives, or I'm not sure how it's done?

For example, if I were to say, "goodbye" it'd respond only with "OK." which would be the worst possible response if I'm being honest. At this point I feel, there's no point in really going for iPhones any longer other than it's expense and brand name

Even with an AI assistant it has no competition to any of the AI models out there. Not to mention, Siri is partially deaf, and isn't capable to understanding. Is this how it's supposed to be, or am I missing out on something?

(I'm being satirical but it's also concerning how the company's downgrading their products, I got this one around 1-2 years back and I regret it)

Can Siri be used with the Philips hue system?

Basically what the title says. Currently I’m using Google to control everything and then we have Alexa controlling other things in the house as well and honestly, I’d rather just get rid of both of those completely and just run as much through Siri as I possibly can.

Questions about Siri without Apple Intelligence

So we know that Siri with Apple intelligence is bigger and better but what about iPhones, iPads, HomePods etc. that don’t support Apple intelligence, is it going to be the same like no other improvements? I haven’t heard anyone discuss this.

Siri appreciation in 2024

I really like using Siri for my day-to-day task, and it makes using my iPhone easier. The first thing I always use Siri for is to set alarms, timer for cooking and doing laundry, then for sending WhatsApp text while I'm working. I just say Siri text this person or to read notifications. I also use Siri when I am lying on the bed and don't want to use my phone and ask Siri to just play my playlist or switch into some specific mode. Even to do some Google search it's convinent because I don't need to move inch in the bed. Also for Writing any text, whether it be on Apple notes or just writing this post right now Siri, just typed what I said. So, yeah I've read a lot that it's useless, but it pretty good, I guess, experiences vary from person to person very heavily.. Even my husband, Who uses android finds it pretty interesting how I always use Siri for every task possible. Pretty excited to see how Siri evolve with iOS 18.Anyways if You use Siri, in more creative ways do comment below

Siri ignoring me

Does anyone know how to fix Siri just straight up ignoring requests? I say “Siri” and it pops up no problem, but then I ask it to skip to the next song, or to set a timer and it just disappears. All my Siri settings are turned on, any ideas?

Inconsistency in reading decimal number

So I have my HomePod gen 2 and whenever I ask Siri on HomePod about my room temperature, suppose my room temperature is 23.4, it gives me reading saying “the temperature is twenty three POINT four”. Now if I ask this same to Siri on my iPhone or my MacBook Pro Siri reads it as “twenty three, four”

How can I bring my MacBook and iPhone Siri to do it like HomePod?

How do I report a word mispronounced by Siri?

I asked Siri for information on a certain subject (as a test, I already knew the correct answer) and she returned the correct information but mispronounced a word. How can I report this to Apple so Siri will pronounce the word correctly?

(Google pronounces it correctly)

FWIW - the word is "Reading" (as in "Reading, PA) - pronounced like "redding" and not like "reading a book"

Why does Siri always have to say "there's a timer!" before telling me how much time is left, when I literally asked how much time is left *on the timer*?

It just feels like such an unnecessary waste of time and power to tell me something that I clearly already know from my question? I don’t understand this. I know there’s a timer. I didn’t ask if there’s a timer, and I didn’t even say "if there’s a timer, tell me how much time is left". And even if I asked if there’s a timer, a simple yes would suffice — she wouldn’t need to say the whole “there’s a timer” even then. Does anyone know why this is a thing?

Apple TV as a Trigger

Hi everyone,

I have an Apple TV 4K and I just bought a Meros LED strip to put on the back of my TV and I would like to make an automation so that when I turn on my TV the LED strip turns on and the opposite when I turn off the Apple TV.

Is there a way to do it?

Is it possible for a person you blocked on your contact list to reappear on your Siri Suggestions?

My partner blocked someone's contact and that person's name is popping back up every other week. But always have unsuggest and block the contact again. Is that possible? Or he could had unblocked the person.

How to make Siri relearn a voice on my Macbook Pro M1?

Siri on my laptop doesn't respond to me saying "Siri / hey Siri" half of the time. I can't find the setup wizard where it asks you to say different phrases so it learns your voice. I have tried turning Siri and keyboard dictation off and on and it still doesn't prompt the setup. Any suggestions?

Apparently Siri can read text messages written with other languages now

I was grocery shopping and siri just casually read out a tm in mandarin, that never happened before, it used to be just Siri telling me someone send me a tm he can’t understand. Huge improvement
