    Press that until Cortana is activated.
    It is important to note that Cortana only comes activated on phones that exist in the United States of America. If your phone is from outside of the United States of America, Cortana will not be activated. It will exist on your phone, but you will need to activate it yourself by changing some settings. If you need to do this, we have a video on this website on how to do it, so you can search for that and learn how to do that. You can go and watch that and learn how to do it, then come back to this video and watch it again and we can help you with this particular topic.

    In this video, we want to improve Cortana's speech recognition for non-native English speakers.
    As it is an American product, it responds best to American accents. Even as an English person, trying to speak to Cortana can be very difficult, as she has a lot of problems understanding my accent. So, for myself, and for all us Non-American speakers, we can make life a little bit easier for us by changing some settings. To do that, we're going to press this button up here at the top right-hand corner that looks like three horizontal lines, which is the settings button.
