Stop Siri Mispronouncing Contact Names Once And For All
If you’d like to teach Siri to pronounce contact names correctly in iOS 7, there are a few steps to follow. First, you’ll need to instruct Siri to list your contact information, then say, “That’s not how you pronounce” followed by the contact’s name.
For example, I said, “That’s not how you pronounce Shannon Rochon.”
Next, Siri will ask you to pronounce the first name. Once you’re finished, you’ll need to select a proper pronunciation.
Finally, Siri will ask you to pronounce the contact’s last name. After you’ve selected the proper pronunciation for the first and last name, Siri will confirm what you’ve selected by saying the name again. In the future, Siri should have no problem pronouncing the name correctly. Keep in mind, you’ll need to perform this action for each contact if you wish to change its pronunciation. (Can you imagine how many Rochons I have in my contact list? It was time consuming to say the least, but I can happily say that I won't ever have to bare the embarrassment of the family name being referred to as "Roaches" or the like ever again! LOL!)
