How to Teach Siri to Pronounce a Name Correctly on iPhone and iPad

Did you know that you could teach Siri to pronounce a particular name correctly on your iPhone and iPad? If the virtual assistant fails to understand a particular name time and again, check out this easy hack to make it pronounce a word perfectly.

Unlike before, Siri sounds more naturally now and also understands the context better. However, there are times when the personal assistant seems to fumble a bit and mispronounces certain names. But don’t bother about this little drawback as you can always teach Siri to pronounce a particular name correctly on your iPhone and iPad.

Once you have taught Siri to speak names correctly, it will remember and pronounce them perfectly. However, the assistant might still not be able to understand some complex names.

Step #1. First off, press and hold the Home button on your iOS device or say “Hey, Siri” to trigger Siri.

Note: On your iPhone X, you have to press and hold the side button to bring Siri into action.

  • When it says the name, say “You’re pronouncing [name] wrong.”
  • You have the option to use your first, middle, or last name.
  • Now, the virtual assistant will ask you how to pronounce the first name of the person. Speak the first name.

Step #2. Next, she will ask you to select a pronunciation. You have to play each option and select the correct one.

Step #3. Next up, she will ask you the middle name of the person. Speak the middle name.

Then, you need to choose a pronunciation and play each option as well as select the correct one.
