In english you would say "Hey Siri, Play Led Zeppelin *numeral* 4" in order for Siri to detect that 4 is a number rather that a word like "for".

Do you know the keyword that replaces "numeral" when Siri speaks french?

(I tried "numéro", "nombre", "numérique", "numéral"... none seem to work)

  • Do you have a specific example of when this would be useful? What French numbers are homophones with other French words that it throws Siri off? – BooleanCheese Aug 5 '19 at 19:11
  • Do you 'speak' to Siri en français? – IconDaemon Aug 5 '19 at 19:55
  • @IconDaemon Yes, my Siri is configured in french. It understands and speaks french. – A.G. Aug 5 '19 at 20:03
  • @BooleanCheese Here are examples: "Joue la piste 1" is understood as "Joue la piste hein" (Siri: ne trouve pas la piste hein). 2 is recognized as "d'eux", somehow "3" is understood as... "sept", "9" as "neuf" (="new"), etc. – A.G. Aug 5 '19 at 20:06
  • Do you have a srong accent ? – Solar Mike Aug 6 '19 at 4:20

The solution is in the official Apple documentation, you should say "numérotation quatre" to input "4".
