Say That Again: Correct Siri’s Pronunciation | iPadOS 17 Guide

If you find that Siri isn’t quite saying something correctly, whether it be a name or word, you can now correct it.

Simply state: “That’s not how you pronounce that,” and Siri will ask which word it pronounced incorrectly so that you can correct it.

You can also ask: “Can you change how you say my name?” if you have a name that Siri struggles with.


Siri has gotten increasingly good at understanding you over the years, but if it’s ever unsure of a word it may be underlined.

Tap the word to choose from one of the suggestions, or use the keyboard to make a manual correction.
