As part of its macOS Catalina and iOS 13 unveiling today at WWDC, Apple announced a new accessibility feature called Voice Control, allowing users to control their Mac and iOS devices entirely using vocal commands.
Voice Control supports dictation and editing in both operating systems, along with comprehensive menu navigation.
On iOS, the feature utilizes attention awareness to know when a user with physical motor limitations is interacting with their device.
To allay privacy concerns, Apple says that none of the audio processed by Voice Control can be accessed by anyone else, including Apple, thanks to built-in anonymity and encryption.

Recently changed the voice speed to max and couldn’t understand anything because it was speaking too fast, so couldn’t use voiceover to find the menu option to change it back... ‘hey Siri slow down voice over’ should be bare minimum!
Developers really need to stop using red letting on black backgrounds red/green color blind (the most common type) literally cannot read the words. Additionally they have the habit of putting really serious warnings in this color combination.
