Windows 10: Cortana isn't speaking to me.

    Cortana isn't speaking to me.


    Cortana functions in all aspects except for speech. I can see the circle pulsating, indicating she is responding but I can't hear her voice. My speakers work just fine in all other areas of the computer. Thank you for any help you can send my way.

    I had that problem when I first upgraded to 10074. I uninstalled the sound card and restarted the computer. The sound card was reinstalled and I could hear what Cortana was saying.

    She won't speak to me either, maybe because I do not have a Microphone.

    No speak and no music when choosing it from Cortana's menu. Sound elsewhere works fine.

    It worked for me. I still don't understand why sound worked in other programs but not in Cortana.

    Yeah I am having the same problem. All the other sounds work, I can even play music and watch videos, but for some reason Cortana remains silent. Why? Is there a way I can get her to talk?

    Perhaps buy her dinner first?
