Beyond The Gallery: Speak Wi-Fi Network Shortcut

VoiceOver users have the luxury of being able to determine their Wi-Fi network from the status bar of their iPhone. This is not the case if you are a low vision user or a totally sighted user of iOS. To assist with this need, I have created a shortcut that will speak my Wi-Fi network if I am connected to one. All you have to do is add the shortcut to Siri and say something like, “Network Name,” and Siri will tell you what network you are connected to.
