Siri and VO

iOS & iPadOS


I’VE BEEN USING ios 8.1.2 FOR A WEEK NOW AND NOTICED Siri and VO are playing nice with each other.

Previously, Siri would get cut off or truncated. I would have to turn off VO in order to work with Siri. After the update, the problem Seemed to have gone away. Anyone else noticed this?

I am using IOS 8.1.2 on an iPhone 6.

Hi! I've noticed significant improvement too. Every once in a great while, Siri is still cut off, but it's nowhere near as bad as it used to be. Maybe 1 in 25 times now or something like that; am not super good at guessing percentages, but it's definitely not the annoyance it used to be.

Yes, SIRI is working much better now and not being truncated as it was in earlier iOS 8 releases.

Siri is a lot better now. In previous iOS versions I tried not to use it and do everything just by using the touchscreen. Now I can do things quickly by asking Siri to do it for me. I'm just to lazy lol

I mean no criticism here but am expressing puzzlement. I don't see why everyone is so hot and bothered about this one when there's a simple solution that requires only two keystrokes: toggle speech off before invoking Siri with three-fingered double-tap and toggling speech back on again when done. I routinely do this.

You should not have to take the extra steps to use features that were designed to work together. In previous IOS, this was not a pervasive problem. So if you are willing to go the extra steps, go for it. But now that it’s fixed, you don’t have to.

I am glad Apple saw it big enough of an issue they fixed it and I applaud them for it. Instead of saying, “oh there is a simple work around, let the users deal with it” they actually fixed it.

So by you saying whats the big deal, just do the work around, is not giving Apple the credit they deserve.
