To select or change your phone voice:
During a phone call, your phone voice will be different from your usual device voice.
1. In TouchChat Settings, in the Speech section, select Phone/FaceTime Voice to open a list of available voices. The voice currently selected displays a checkmark.
2. To change the voice, select the "speaker" icon to hear how a voice sounds. Listen to several voices if necessary.
3. When you find the voice you want, select the "Apple" icon to download and install it.

To make a phone call:
