i have done that. the voice i use is serena who is english. If i change to Jane who is also English it reverts back to roundabouts so I think i’ll just do that. Thanks for trying everyone, I appreciate the time you spent helping
Serena is English UK. Samantha would be English US.
If I check the iOS region settings there seems to be no way to distinguish UK and US English. For me in iOS Settings > General > Language & Region I have just English as a language and the Netherlands as a region. But my spellcheck for the keyboard specifies English (UK).
