I'm German and use German Voice-Over on my iPhone. If I switch the language to English for some apps it often switches back to German and I have to switch back to English with the rotor again. I turned on auto-langauge-switchting. It's not working great. Just in Safari if the websites tagged correctly.
I just got an M1 MacBook Air and auto-language-switching works like a charm. Even on smaller text blocks. Even on mixed texts, that are not tagged.
Is there any way to get the same great auto-switch-experience on iPhone? Maybe a newer iPhone with a better processor? Does someone have language-auto-switch experience on newer and older iPhones? My 2020 iPad Pro has the same bad auto-switch experience like my iPhone SE 2.
Basically the device remembers what language you have previously switched to on the app, make sure your Rotor says default language
I’ve had the same problem…
I’ve had the same problem with my iPhone 11. English is my first language and I’ve been teaching myself German, so I’ve added the German language to my rotor. Sometimes when I come across German text on a website, it reads it with the American Siri voice instead of switching to German. I don’t know why this happens.
German uses the same formatting as English, meaning that uses Latin characters, it’s just how it is, unless the website uses German HTML, I have known some websites that use a different language HTML not matching what the actual language is on the website. for example, there could be a website that has Chinese HTML, which will force VoiceOver to switch over to the Chinese voice, even though it’s English, The only way to resolve this issue is to manually switch the language using your rotor
Yeah German and English have the same letter system
I use duolingo and flashcards deluxe.
Russian is read with Russian voice, English with English, Arabic With Arabic, Chinese with Chinese.
