    I've noticed with the new OS update [] from Verizon that the voice response feature does not work at all. It searches fine but i cannot hear a voice response. I checked the settings and I do have 'Voice Response ' turned on in the options...the phone isn't in silent mode either and I have restarted the phone a couple times already. I wonder if anyone else have this issue. Any help would be very much appreciated. Before the update I was running a leaked 10.3.1 OS and it was working perfectly.

    I'm on a VZW Z10. I also upgraded and also have no voice for my assistant. Hopefully, it is not just the two of us.

    @Big10BBuser did you have a leaked OS before the official?

    Good catch. This would be the first time for me. I've loaded many leaks on the Z10 and never had a problem.

    Maybe we can get some expert advice that doesn't involve a complete wipe.

    Anyone, anyone, anyone?

    Nope, sorry. No answer. It seems to be a bug in updating some versions kills the voice replies. No fix that I know of.

    Your only solution, sorry to say is indeed wipe and not restore.

    Dumb question, but did you check your volume level while inside the BlackBerry Assistant?

    How about BBM video chat and call? Not working anymore since latest OS10. 3 update from Verizon.

    Me neither...but I did try English (UK) and it worked last night. Too afraid to try it out this morning. Also found the volume suggestion last night, BA volume is max'd out. I don't use BBM.

    Guess, I know what I might be doing after church tomorrow....

    Thanks to all.

    Both my wife and I have updated Z10's with Verizon. My assistant used to speak answers but has stopped. My wife's speaks answers but for something common like the weather decides to search the Internet sometimes and then at other times will speak the forecast. I was showing off the capabilities of the assistant a day after the update and am glad it worked then. Not sure what to do since restarting and volume adjustment haven't worked. No more showing off

    Updated recently and voice response was working fine until two days ago. I've always used only the official verizon releases, so I don't think leaks have anything to do with the issue. At one point all audio feedback was gone from the assistant. Now I can hear the beeps again, but no voice response. I'm hoping she's just out of breath and will return after her break.

    It stopped talking on my Q5 purchased unlocked from blackberry, so this issue isn't just specific to the Verizon update.

    Bingo! Thanks! So far. I switched to English UK and now she speaks again. I tried switching back to English (US) with a restart, but no success. Will try again later. I guess it's fine for now, as long as she understands proper English.

    I kid, I kid.

    Hmmm...just realized numerical dates are reversed when read using UK English. 7/11/2015 becomes November 7, 2015, so this is not a clean work around in the US - but still manageable.

    Actually, yeah, there might be a solution. Turning off the voice feedback, changing the language, then turning it back on, and changing the language again might fix it.

    Try messing with changing between us English and Canadian English a few times and turning the voice reply on and off, I think somewhere in there might fix it.

    Ok so this is the solution that worked for me based on what others commented here. If your voice response doesn't work in 'English US' switch to 'English UK' and then restart. The voice response works at this point but not my cup of joe... so then switch back to 'English US' and do the same restart phone and it should work and be back to normal. Thanks everyone here for the help :-)

    Had same issue on both our Q10 devices. Rogers Canada official update. Switched to English UK. Soft reboot she works with an elegant proper UK English. Back to settings. Switch to us English. Didn't have to do reboot. Just wait a couple of minutes for language to finish. It will actually tell you to wait until new language is finished changing. Waited and now back to us English. Hope no reoccurences. Guess with every major update they miss something. Does this get back to blackberry so they know it is happening. Do we see a small update in future. Otherwise very happy with the many improvements. Keep it up BlackBerry.

    Worked on the one phone fine for two weeks. Then she went bye bye again. Repeated the previous process but a real pain. Hope BlackBerry is looking at this one. Unfortunately it is sporadic so hard to replicate. At least we have a temp fix.
