How To Get Siri To Stop Reading Texts On Airpods

Share This:

Siri is a great way to stay connected and organized, but sometimes it can be intrusive if it’s announcing your notifications when you don’t want it to. If you use AirPods or Beats headphones to listen to music or take calls, then you’ll know that Siri can start reading out your texts and other notifications while you’re using them. This can be really annoying, espeially when you’re in public. Fortunately, there’s a way to stop Siri from reading out your text messages on AirPods or Beats headphones.

The feature responsible for this behavior is called Announce Notifications. It can be found in the Settings app under Notifications. When you open this section, toggle the feature off to prevent Siri from speaking up whenever you receive a text message or oher notification while using AirPods or Beats headphones.

You might also want to disable the “Announce Calls” feature that is located in the same menu; this will prevent Siri from speaking aloud when you receive an incoming call on your iPhone. You can also disable the “Raise to Speak” option in the Accessibility settings if you don’t want Siri responding when you raise your phone up to your face as if making a call.

Once these options are turned off, Siri will no longer announce any of your notifications while using AirPods or Beats headphones. That means no more unwanted interruptions when listening to music or talking on the phone!

Stopping Siri from Reading AirPods in Messages

To stop Siri from reading your AirPods in messages, you need to turn off the Announce Notifications feature. You can do this by opening the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad and tapping on Notifications. Then tap on Announce Notifications and toggle the switch to the off position. This will prevent Siri from reading out loud any notifications that you receive through AirPods.

The Impact of AirPods on Siri’s Ability to Read Messages

Siri reads your messages when you have AirPods in as a part of the Announce Notifications feature. This feature allows Siri to read out loud your notifications, such as text messages, emails and calendar events, so that you can stay up to date wthout having to take out your phone. This is especially helpful when you’re driving or otherwise busy, as it allows you to keep up with important notifications without having to take your eyes off the road or away from what you’re doing.

Changing AirPod Settings

To change your AirPod settings, open the Settings app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and select Bluetooth. Then tap the More Info button next to your AirPods. Here you can adjust settings such as the double-tap gesture for each AirPod (for example, activating Siri, playing or pausing audio content, or skipping between tracks), renaming your AirPods, and changing their battery icon (so you can tell which one is left and right). You can also turn off Automatic Ear Detection (which will make it so that your AirPods won’t automatically pause when you take them out of your ears) and adjust the sound balance between the left and rght AirPods.

Turning Off Automatic Text Reader

In order to turn off automatic text reader, you will need to go to your phone’s settings menu. Once there, select the General option. Then click on Accessibility and look for the “Speak Auto-Text” option. Turn it off and return to the home screen and Siri will no longer read out your text messages.

Stopping Siri From Reading Everything

If you want to stop Siri from reading everything, you can turn off the Announce Messages with Siri feature. To do this, open the Settings app and tap Siri & Search. Then, scroll down and toggle off the Announce Messages with Siri feature. This will prevent your iPhone from reading out incoming messages and other notifications while using Siri hands-free.

All in all, Siri offers a great way to make the most of your iOS device and increase its efficiency.
