Anyone else notice that dictating to Siri hardly ever works anymore? She hears me just fine, but when finished erases like 75% of the words. In general she's also understanding me way worse too, but losing words she's already heard is the worst part of it.

I've attached a GIF to show you what I'm talking about. It's been doing this for about 2 months now but I don't think it started with iOS 12.

Hmm? Siri is actually understand me better for the most part, but there are times that the A.I. still gets confused. However, I have come to expect it.

I experienced the same thing today - slow to understand and very poor transcription. Constantly deleting and re-encoding.

The built in voice to text (not “enhanced dictation” as I used above aka send to Apple servers aka Siri) worked way better. Thus, it might be a server side issue.
