Apple Watch, Tap to Speak Time not working? Here’s what to do!

Apple Watch is one of the best smartwatches, and it comes with tons of bells and whistles, which make it an ideal option for fitness enthusiasts. Tap to Speak Time is one of the nifty features of the Apple Watch, which allows the watch to speak time when you tap it. If you have enabled it on your Apple Watch and it’s not working, I can help you with it. Let’s get started.

Apple Watch Talking Faces, Which Apple Watch Faces Talk and Speak the Time?

Before we get to our actual topic, it’s important that you know which Apple Watch Faces talk and speak the time. Ideally, there should be several options to choose from, but this feature is only limited to two watch faces: Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. Unfortunately, these are the only two watch faces that can speak time, but I hope that with the new Apple Watch and WatchOS, Apple will introduce more watch faces that can speak time. If that happens, I’ll update this guide for you.

Apple Watch Mickey and Minnie Mouse not Talking – Why and what to do?

Mickey and Minnie Mouse are two watch faces that come with Tap to speak time feature, and if they are not working, it could be due to several reasons. In the next sections, I will share the various solutions which you can use to fix this issue.

Disable Silent Mode

Tap to Speak is a great feature, but it won’t work if the Silent Mode is enabled on your smartphone. So, make sure that the silent Mode is disabled on your Apple Watch. Here’s how you can check that.

·        Go to your Apple Watch

·        Now press and hold the bottom of the watch face until the control center appears on the screen.

·        Swipe up and make sure that the Silent Mode is turned off.

·        That’s it.

If you don’t want to face this issue again, Apple Allows you to enable the Tap to Speak feature even when the silent Mode is turned on, and you can do it from the settings. Here’s how you can do it.

·        Go to your Apple Watch

·        Now press the digital crown to open the apps

·        Find the settings app and tap it.

·        In the settings, scroll down and find the Clock Option.

·        Now make sure that Speak Time feature is toggled green.

·        In the next step, tap on the “Always Speak” option.

·        That’s it.

Now the Apple Watch will speak time even if the Silent Mode is enabled on your Apple Watch.

Make sure to download the Voices of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse

If you just enabled Tap to Speak feature on your Apple Watch and it’s not working, it could be due to the reason that the voices of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse are not downloaded on your Apple Watch. The easy way to fix the issue is to connect your Apple Watch with the Working WiFi and then put your Apple Watch on the charger for around 15 minutes. The system will download the voices in the meantime, and the issue will be fixed.

Remove Mickey or Minnie Mouse Watch Face and then add it again

Now sometimes, things happen in the background which can cause Mickey or Minnie Mouse not to speak time, and the quickest way to fix this issue is to remove the watch face and then add it again. In this way, you can easily solve the problem. Here’s how you can remove and then add the Watch Face on Apple Watch.

·        Go to your Apple Watch

·        Now press and hold the display

·        In the next step, swipe up on Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse Watch Face and tap Remove.

·        Once the watch face is removed, the next step is to add it back. For that, swipe left and find the “+” button, tap it.

·        Now use the digital crown to browse through the watch faces and then select Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse to add it back to your Apple Watch.

·        That’s it.

Once the watch face is added back to your Apple Watch, tap on the screen to hear the time. If you use Apple Watch Series 5 or Series 6 and use the Always-on Display feature, then tap twice to hear the time.
