Microsoft is turning off Cortana's voice walkthrough during Windows 10 setup for Pro and Enterprise users
In 2017, Microsoft introduced a new out of box setup experience for Windows 10 that heavily featured Cortana and encouraged users to use their voice to setup their devices for the first time. The problem with this feature is that many people didn't want or need it, and Insiders have been rather vocal about this since it was first introduced.
As such, starting with the next Windows 10 feature update, codenamed 19H1 and expected to launch in April, the Cortana voice-over feature during setup will be disabled out of box on Pro, Enterprise, and Education editions.
Microsoft's wording on this change suggests that users who do want or need the voice over assistance can still gain access to it, but for the majority of users who don't, this feature will no longer bug you by default. Users on Home will still have Cortana voice assistance enabled during setup out of box.

However I noticed regular people like it.
A better implementation would have been to ask users if they wished to install via voice thus a opt-in experience instead of the previous default opt-out.
Never the less this is somewhat a fair compromise in the grand scheme of things.
Looks like she will soon be showing News again In her dedicated section in 19H1.
