  2. Cortana Speech Problem

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. I will certainly help you with this.

    Please make sure your Country or Region, Language, and
    Speech Language settings are all aligned with one of Cortana’s supported locale configurations.  If these OS settings are not aligned, Cortana will not be available in proper language. For example, Cortana will not work properly
    if your country is set to United States, but the Windows display language is set to English (United Kingdom).



    I suggest you to try to turn Cortana off and then try turning it on back and check. Refer to the steps below to turn Off and On Cortana:

    • Open Cortana.
    • Click the hamburger button in the top left of the window.
    • Go to Settings and click on off.
    • Follow the same steps to turn it on.
    • Check if issue persists.
    I suggest you to refer to the steps and settings given in below discussion thread by
    Sharath Srinivasa and confirm that your system is configure in same settings:

    Why is Cortana not available for me on Windows 10?



    Hope this information helps. Post back with updated issue details for further help.

    Thank you.
