Steps to Change Siri’s Voice on iPhone or iPad

  1. Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone or iPad. You’ll land on the Settings screen.
  2. Scroll down until you see Siri and Search, and then tap “Siri and Search.” The Siri and Search screen is displayed.

  1. Find the Ask Siri section, and then tap “Siri Voice” in this section. The Siri Voice screen is shown, where you’ll see the different accents Siri can speak in in the Variety section, and the different voices, including male and female, associated with your currently selected accent in the Voice section.

  1. Tap to listen to a preview of each accent in the Variety section. When you find the accent you like, tap that accent until there is a check mark displayed next to it.

  1. Move down to the Voice section to see a list of the voices available with that accent. Again, tap to preview each voice, and then tap to place a check mark next to the voice you want to use. Going forward whenever you summon Siri on your iPhone or iPad it will operate with your chosen accent and voice.

Reasons to Change Siri’s Voice on Your iPhone or iPad

1. Personal preference

If you’re looking for a more personalized experience with Siri, changing her voice might be just what you need. Whether you prefer a male or female voice, an accent that better reflects your own, or simply a change of pace, you can find a voice that suits you.

2. Accessibility

For those with hearing impairments, finding a voice that they can understand is critical. If you’re having trouble understanding Siri, try changing her voice to see if a different accent or speaking style works better for you. Additionally, some users may find a voice that speaks more slowly or with a clearer tone to be easier to understand. Experiment with different voices until you find one that works best for you.

3. Customization

If you’re looking to differentiate your device from others, customizing Siri’s voice is a great place to start. By selecting a unique voice, you can give your device a personalized touch that sets it apart from the rest. This is also a fun way to express your individuality and add a touch of personality to your device.

4. Novelty

Trying out a new Siri voice can be a fun and entertaining experience. Whether you want to surprise friends and family, or simply have a good laugh, changing Siri’s voice is a quick and easy way to add a touch of humor to your day. Don’t be afraid to experiment and have a little fun with Siri’s voice options.

5. Language preference

If you prefer to use Siri in a language other than the default one on your device, changing her voice can help ensure that you receive responses in the language you prefer. Whether you’re more comfortable communicating in Spanish, French, or another language, you can find a voice that speaks your language.
