    You can’t teach Siri how to pronounce words in the Siri assistant. I had called in and talked to a support person and learned more about Siri versus the voices you can choose from to read text. I found out it’s really two different things. My issue was the American Siri female and male voice pronounced some words incorrectly and you can’t train a Siri voice to learn pronunciations of common words. For example: when asking Siri to read a text message she or he will ask, “do you want to reply?” But she pronounces the word reply like ree-ply, instead of reply with the accent on ply. Quirky yes but a little annoying.
