The intelligent built- in feature of Apple devices, Siri, works as your personal assistant by using your preferred language it does all kinds of work from answering questions to  performing different actions like finding a contact or sending a mail, all in just a blink of an eye. But like humans, it misunderstands a name that you pronounce while finding a contact sometimes and shows another one.  Which is kind of annoying. But like other amazing features of Apple now you can teach Siri how to pronounce a name correctly. Quickly follow the steps given and find a contact without getting annoyed.

Step By Step Guide:

Step 1:

Tap and hold down the ‘home’ button.

Step 2:

When the Siri is activated, say “that’s not how you pronounce a name”.

Step 3:

Siri will ask you to speak in the correct pronunciation.

Step 4:

It will give you the options to select the name with correct pronunciation.


Step 5:

If you don’t find the correct option tell Siri again to give you options. Keep asking Siri for correct pronunciation until you get the desired one.


There you go! This is how you can give Siri a tinge of your regional names. And fortunately, Siri is smart enough to remember that pronunciation for the rest of her life; even if we humans tend to forget.
