I am able to get around this by using the phrase "read my message" or sometimes "read my last message". Hope this helps. That didn’t work Neither of those ideas worked. Any other ideas? What settings need to be on? Siri That is an issues for a long time. I got that message here and there for several years. Do not know if is a bug. report it to apple Turn off voice over. It works fine then. Turn on voice over it doesn't work We all need to report this. Messages. Siri will read my message on the lock screen. But if I just read the message with voiceover, I then unlock my phone and Messages app will say I have an unread message. But if Siri reads it, the message won't show as unread. This is another bug I wish would get fixed.
