VO quirk or IOS bug?

Forum
iOS & iPadOS

A small but annoying problem: Just before I updated to the newest IOS, VO started pronouncing yesterday as yester-tay, and Larry as Laury. Is this somebody's idea of a joke or an Easter Egg? Or, is it a real bug?

That only happened to me when I updated to 13.4. Its annoying I agree. It still pronounces dictate as dictite.

I connected with support today to ask about this problem. I was told that the team is aware of the recent problems with pronunciation and is working on a fix. Who knows how long this will be? But, this is a genuine bug that others are experiencing and of which Apple appears to be aware.

Note that, at least in my case, a switching of voices to IOS Alex or the Australian Karen voice solves the problem.

Every since 13.4, this is happening. Just ask Sirie to read your message and then listen to how he asks if you want to reply. I also noticed that instead of saying April when telling the date, VO says APR.
