This question already has an answer here:

This is actually a follow up question to Cortana error "I'm sorry, but I can't speak your language" in Canada

I am following Microsoft's document http://www.windowsphone.com/en-ca/how-to/wp8/cortana/cortana-alpha and installed latest Preview for Developers. I think I have met all requirements.

OS Version

enter image description here

It is later than 8.10.14214.329 as needed.

Language Setting

enter image description here

English Canada is the first one in list.


enter image description here Canada is my region.


enter image description here English US is the speech as required.

With all the settings when I run Cortata I still got error message I'm sorry, but I can't speak your language.

Any clue?

The root cause is that the English (Canada) language package was removed by manufacturer. See http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/winphone/forum/wpdp-wpcortana/cortanta-still-not-work-in-canada-with-latest/d7036ea8-e459-409d-9ac5-92a608d32dc6 for details.
