Problem with VoiceOver Language Detection

Forum
iOS & iPadOS
Hello, I have noticed that when I use apps such as the TuneIn radio app, VoiceOver speaks some of the text in another language, even though any language settings have not been changed. How can I fix this? I am using an iPhone 5, with iOS 7.1. Thanks.

Hi I thin is not possible to fix it, this is a voiceOver feature that allows to reclinize language so it not only is notable when use some apps you can see this also when use safari web brouser. I hope some one else has other answer to you, but I think isn't possible.

Hi Alana, Unfortunately, I too have experienced this bug. It started around the time I upgraded to iOS 7.1, so I am pretty sure it is an iOS 7.1 bug. Believe me, I know how frustrating it is, as I'm unable to read some stories in the Facebook app that are definitely not in any other language than English. ;-)

I have also experienced this bug. I think it is an iOS 7.1 bug because I didn't have this problem before. A good work-around that I have found is to go through the text word by word. If you do this, it will say everything correctly. It's annoying, but at least then you will be able to understand it. Thankfully, it doesn't happen all the time for me. :)
