    Cortana is not responding?


    I use Windows 10 home edition, I have 32 gig of ram and more hard drive space than I will ever use!

    My problem is that I an a Windows Insider who allows preview builds. After the latest build and cumulative update, when trying to use Cortana I get a message: "Sorry but Cortana is not available in English (United Kingdom) at this time".
    Even speach recognition does not respond?
    My latest build is : Windows 10 Insider Preview 19035.1 (vb_release)
    And: Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version Next (10.0.19035.1000) (KB4533028)

    I have checked all the settings relating to Cortana/speech rec and microphone and they are all active?

    I use Cortana and Speech recognition regularly, and I miss it?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    Cortana Does Not Respond to "Hey, Cortana"

    Hi,

    To assist you better, please provide us with the below information;


    • Did you made any changes to the computer prior to the issue?

    • Does the Cortana search tool work properly?

    I suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps resolve the issue;

    • Right click on the
      speaker icon in the lower right hand corner of your desktop.
    • Select "Recording Devices".
    • Select your main input microphone.
    • Speak into the microphone.
    • Note the sound level meter. You want the level meter to peak every so often at the top of the bar but still show good bounce during your spoken text.
    • Ensure the microphone input is still selected and
      click properties
      .
    • Click the Levels tab.
    • If you have a microphone boost set it in the middle.
    • Now adjust the microphone gain by moving the slider.

    10. Click “Apply” and verify that the level meter is responding as described in step 5.

    If the issue still persist, I suggest you to refer to the below link and try the troubleshooting methods and check if it helps;

    Get back to us for further assistance, we will be glad to help you.
