    Cortana "No Sound"


    Cortana seems to be silent all of a sudden. I tried fixing the problem in Settings Sound, but still nothing. Do I have to speak to her before she will respond with sound?

    Couple simple things to check- click Cortana icon in taskbar (R of Start button) and click microphone icon to R of Search box to activate your mic. Does it respond to saying "Hey, Cortana" ?

    Does Cortana respond to your voice commands?
    If so, ask Cortana if she speaks

    Also make sure you don't have mute checked in your sound settings on taskbar !

    ...also, check Cortana's individual level in Volume Mixer:
