    It seems no one else has had this problem (Or at least there were no threads I could find) But every voice file I download is in latin characters rather than kana, and I can't fix it. As a little background info, this is on a new computer and not a problem I've faced before. I run Windows 10.
    Any help or suggestions? xxxx.png

    *sigh*
    I have to explain this.
    Again.

    Did you set your locale to Japanese?

    No, am I supposed to?

    >>And apologies, I couldn't find any explanation for it so I made this post. I didn't mean it to cause hassle for you.

    Here's a visual guide to changing your locale on Windows 10, made by @_caustic_

    No problem, it's just that a lot of new users forget to change their locale.

    I doubt you'll have this issue again since you may have changed your locale
    But I'm sure you had issues finding a solution because that's not Latin
    It's just a bunch of random characters with some random letters.
    Just a heads up if you do have the issue again for some reason, don't google something like the thread title, just google something like "utau not in kana" instead ^^

    It's in mojibake. It usually happens when your computer tries to read Asian characters without Asian language packs installed, which is something done when you change your locale. You may have to reinstall UTAU to get it to display right.

    There's no need to get hostile. It's not realistic to expect everyone to know the roundabout of UTAU right from the get-go ^^

    Hi, @v a n i l l a!

    It's fine to ask this. :smile: I had exactly the same problem too when I was starting out. :wink:

    Another thing that people recommended that I did was to delete everything UTAU (the voicebanks and even the USTs) *le gasp*

    So far, everything's working fine (it should be for you too, if you did do it) :D
