Description

Siri may not respond if you invoke it whilst VoiceOver focus is in a text field and Direct Touch Typing is selected. Typically, the ‘listening’ tone will be play, but followed immediately by the ‘stopped listening’ tone. If you then try again, Siri may or may not behave correctly, In some instances, it will display the response to what you have said, but not automatically speak it.
