Using my iPad Mini The voice Samantha in VO using both the default and enhanced versions says Alabama when the name Al is read (when a large A is read with a small l). This is also occuring when Al Qaeda or another Arabic name of a publication from the Arab world is read. It became so annoying that I am now using Alex instead of Samantha. I do prefer Samantha because her pronunciation of names and places is superior to Alex.
I have already reported this problem to Apple Accessability and there is no fix as of yet. Has anyone else come across this problem with Samantha? The rep at Apple Accessability stated that I was only the second person that had reported this problem. I had reported this problem just before Christmas 2015.
