Voiceover through phone speaker/output when connecting to Bluetooth .. kind of works :) .. iOS13.3

Happy New Year all!
For years now I've really wished for a way to have Voiceover's speech come through the IPhones speaker/out instead of through the Bluetooth output which the phone is connected to. This has never been a possibility with iOS and Bluetooth. It is a possibility when Airplay over Wifi, and through Apple Car play (wired connection via USB) Now in iOS 13.3 something seams broken. When I connect my IPhone 10S to a Bluetooth 3.0 a2DP Audio device, Voiceover and SIRI audio comes through the phone, while all other audio comes through the paired BT device. My girlfriend also has an IPhone 10S with the same iOS software running and it also has the same functionality as described above. I have tried newer BT receivers and VO comes out the BT device. This does prove though what I figured that this was possible through software.
