Speak auto text, possible iOS 15 or device bug?

iOS and iPadOS

Don’t know if this is an iOS 15 bug, or device specific, but although I have speak auto text on in VoiceOver settings for VoiceOver to speak auto corrections, it keeps seemingly toggling itself off randomly. Has anyone else experience thihis?

Yes, it’s been happening here as well. The closest I’ve ever come to figuring out why it happens is that some ad blockers like adguard cause it. Do you have any ad blockers running? If not, and you’re still having the auto text turn off randomly, I can’t say why it does it at all. The problem is no one seems to care. I’ve actually posted this issue about a year or so ago and instead of providing meaningful feedback, users try to explain why I should use predictive text.

I tried turning on auto correction. But it will get toggle off again. Now I am trying with speak screen bar turned on. Using 10s max. Not having the problem on my iPhone 8 although both have the same settings

Speak autotext used to turn off randomly on my phone. Don't know if this will work for everyone but it did for me. Since I couldn't find the cause, I decided to reset all settings on my phone. Do note that this action will result in you having to reconfigure all your phone settings including re-adding your cards to wallet and setting up Touch ID or Face ID.
