Siri, which has a very compact interface, looks better in iOS 14. Instead of taking over the entire screen, the virtual assistant appears at the bottom. With a small animated avatar, it doesn’t seem to stop your current work anymore. But unlike its predecessor, the personal assistant does not show the text of what you are speaking due to its compact user interface. However, if you prefer to have a real-time transcription, you can still have Siri transcribe your requests in iOS 14 and iPadOS 14.
Have Siri Show Real-Time Translation of Speech
Personally, I like to check real-time transcription while talking to Siri to make sure it’s interpreting requests correctly. It helps you to have a little more effective conversation with the personal assistant. This is probably why Apple offers an option to show/hide speech while talking to Siri. Let me show you how it works!
one. Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
2. Scroll down and then Siri and Search.
3. Next, tap on it. Siri Feedback.
4. Next, “Always Show Talk” change.
This much! From now on, your requests will appear in a small pop-up window over the Siri sphere at the bottom of the screen. Check out the screenshot below.
If you decide to reverse the change, go to the Siri Feedback screen and then “Always Show Talk” switch at the end.
Get Siri to Type Your Requests on iPhone or iPad
So, in the latest iteration of iOS, you can have Siri speak while speaking. It’s always good to have the option to enable/disable a particular feature on your own terms. Despite giving Siri a new look, Apple has retained the ability to show real-time transcription of speech, which is a good move from users’ point of view.
Similarly, Apple has redesigned the incoming call notification UI, giving it a more compact look. But if you’re feeling nostalgic about the old full-screen incoming calls interface, you can take it back. By the way, how do you evaluate these changes? Are they better?
