As of not long ago, the default voice for Apple’s Siri assistant has been stereotypically female-sounding. Notwithstanding, studies have discovered that having AI assistants default to female-sounding voices can reinforce harmful stereotypes, so Apple has tried to fix that in its upcoming iOS 14.5, which is currently in beta.
At the point when you update your telephone to iOS 14.5, you’ll be prompted to pick a default voice for Siri — and Apple is including two new voice options. Be that as it may, on the off chance that you’ve adjusted your perspective and need to utilize an alternate voice (or are utilizing the 14.5 beta and weren’t incited), this guide will tell you the best way to change the voice after setup.
It’s a reasonably simple process. In the first place, go to the Settings application, at that point to Siri and Search, and tap Siri Voice. There, you’ll be given the list of options.
Right now, the American variety is the just one with four voice choices; Australian, British, Indian, Irish, and South African forms just have two. The four US voice choices are:
- Voice 1, which is a soft-spoken male-sounding voice
- Voice 2, a energetic, confident female-sounding voice
- Voice 3 is similar to Voice 2 but male-sounding
- Lastly, Voice 4, which is similar to the default Siri voice that has been around every one of these years
Tapping on a voice will play a snippet of it saying “Hi, I’m Siri. Choose the voice you’d like me to use.” If you pick voices 1–3, it should download them before you can utilize them, yet you don’t need to remain in the Settings application while it does as such. Whenever it’s done downloading, Siri will react with your chosen voice.
This process is probably not going to change in the final version, however in the event that it does, they will make certain to update this how-to.
