    Hi there,

    I currently set my Siri to US-English language. I like it a lot more to
    talk to her in english. She definitely understands way more and it somehow
    works better.

    But all my SMS, Mails, etc. are in German. So I want here to read the
    Messages and Texts in German and I also want to dictate the Messages
    in German.

    Is there a way to work that out? I couldn't find anything in the settings.


    Thanks in advance.
    Marcel

    Marcel -

    I don't think its possible to do as you ask - you can highlight text and get the system to read what you have selected using Text To Speech (Accessibility -> Speak Selection) and you could select German there, but to get the Siri interface in English but to read texts etc in German I don't think is possible.

    Okay thanks. That helps. I think then it's also not possible to dictate in German, right?
