I have changed my speech language to new one, and it showing Downloading all the time.

Via System > Speech > Speech Language

It has been still Downloading for 2 weeks (It's only 24Mb, expected to finish within a minute). I have connected to a high speed WiFi. And I can't cancel or can't download any other language right now. Any answer other than hard reset will be appreciated.

  • Is your phone up to date? Any phone updates apart from Spech downloads that are pending? – karancan Sep 4 '13 at 0:23
  • Yes, it's. I do phone updates, application updates etc. as when they are available. – N K Sep 4 '13 at 7:53

The following was helpful for me, you can try it.

"Goto settings > language+region. If you have set your country to UK, and language set to Spanish at the moment, then try temporarily either change country to Spain and leave language as Spanish or Leave the country as UK and set language to English."

  • It's a good solution. And please remove the other answer (it's not an answer). – N K Sep 4 '13 at 8:18

I had the same problem and rebooting did not work. The download always got stuck and nothing seemed to be happening.

I then went to "phone update" and asked it to check for updates. It immediately told me new updates were being downloaded, then installed and asked to reboot so my language pack would be updated.

It seems downloading from the "speech" screen will only mark it as needed, but not actually trigger the action. Going to "phone update" and explicitly asking it to check for updates did the trick.

I'm using a Nokia Lumia 925.
