Funny voiceover problem

iOS and iPadOS

Hello everybody. After updating to iOS 14 from iOS 13, I noticed that voiceover did not pronounce will the words General and islands. After a few weeks the word general was fixed by itself somehow. Strange but it happened with the without me doing anything. Now I am just waiting for the world island to be fixed also ha ha Ha. Has anybody else noticed anything like it?

It will not say the word grand. It only says gran. Why IDK but it throws me off because I use BSI. so I backspace it, write it again, and still same thing. Same ecircumstance.

It seems like now adays, a lot of the TTS voices Apple uses both on the mac, and on iOS don't pronounce certain things correctly. Here's another example. Use one of the US english Siri voices, and by the way, different thread entirely, but don't even get me started on that! Anyway, on iOS, go into Safari and open up multiple tabs. Then, 3D force touch, or double tap and hold, either/or on the tabs icon. IN the menu which appears, go to close all X number of tabs. Notice on the confirmation screen, um, no? I don't want to close 2 tabbies! I have enough cats out my window in heat to not need iOS telling me of more which can be closed up. Oh wait. Sorry for the sick pun, but come on Apple! This is becoming ridiculous! Seriously? With a company who currently has just over 147 thousand employees, says Siri, you'd think someone would have caught this. Never mind I've reported it to Accessibility, as well as regular Apple tech support many times. Oh never mind they want a screen recording and system logs to "prove", their words not mine, it.

VO pronounces the phrase Good Friday incorrectly. I can't explain it. It makes the word Friday sound like fridoth or something. It's so strange, because it pronounces the individual words correctly. I know there have been other words in the past, I just can't think of them right now.
