“I need to turn voicemail transcription feature off on my iPhone 6s! Since updated to iOS 10, I have to hit the voicemail 3 or 4 times to open a voicemail, and the transcription is never correct! After I read it, I have to hit the delete multiple times before it is removed and there is no clear way to close it and move onto the next voicemail. Then I updated my iPhone to iOS 11, but this problem still remains. Can anybody help? Thanks!”

Step 1. Go to Settings > Siri > Language.

Step 2. Change Siri language to Australian English or Indian English (if it doesn’t work, choose Japanese or other languages that don’t sound like English).
