VO speaking all punctuation

iOS & iPadOS

Since updating ios14 vo includes all punctuation like . , : ‘ etc. Very difficult to read anything with all punctuation read a loud as well. I have gone to vo punctuation, but it’s not changing when I select none. Suggestions?

This has been mentioned previously. In the rota you’ll discover that the Activities option has a flick down setting called programming. It’s this that’s causing the punctuation issue. You could flick up again to the other setting and VO will speak normally. However, it’s probably best to go into the settings app then into Accessibility and voiceover and finally, activities. Then flick down on Programming and tap to delete it. VO should speak normally again.

No need to delete anything, that made me nervous, in settings, after activities, programming, choose punctuation all, some or none. I choose some and perfecto! Weird thoughts some was the default when searching for the solution.
