I got the update to JB 4.1.1 two days ago, when i tested the voice search the voice that talks back was a female voice (UK), today i tried it again and for some reason the voice has changed to a male voice (UK), this is weird because there doesn't seem to be any way to change it back to a female voice, which i prefer, has anyone else found that the output voice has changed from female to male, or from male to female, also, is there a way to change this in the settings somewhere as i can't seem to find it, i'm running 100% stock JB 4.1.1.

You shouldn't complain, some of us don't even have voice feedback for Google search at all...

I prefer the male voice it is more natural. I think it's the UK version of the US woman. I also noticed voice actions work in the UK also.

Has anyone worked out what caused this yet? The same thing happened to me, first couple of days I had the female voice, but then without doing anything, it just started using a male voice. The female one was much better as it's clearer, especially on the low speaker levels the Galaxy Nexus has! Every bit helps.

As the OP, I'm running stock JB on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

I've heard that certain manufacturers had to use male voices in Germany because Germans refused to take directions from women.

True story.
