VoiceOver pronunciation issue: "Live" "ADD"
Instead of using tips and tricks with capitals or doubled letters that currently work but may be obsolete in a future version of iOS or inconvenient with braille, I suggest to use the
accessibilitySpeechIPANotation key inside an attributed string in order to define the appropriate phonetic sound (available since iOS11): this method is proven and will last in time.
Phonemes can be generated thanks to your mobile device settings:
- iOS 13 +...:
- iOS 12:
The solution - at least for iOS 9.1 and newer - changing the capitalisation of the word also changes the pronunciation:
- Live rhymes with five
- live rhymes with give
I've been struggling with this for a while but I found out a simple solution... If you add another "L" letter to the "Live" string it will pronounce live as five.
Try this --> "Llive"
