It’s easy, simply summon the virtual assistant on your Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, like you normally do. Then say, “Spell (word).” Of course, the word you want Siri to spell will take the place of the (word) part in my example.

As noted by OSXDaily, you can ask her to spell a word in a number of different ways:

  • Spell (word)
  • Hey Siri, spell vichyssoise
  • Spell the word vichyssoise
  • Spell vichyssoise
  • Siri, spell vichyssoise
  • Siri, tell me how to spell vichyssoise
  • Siri spell vichyssoise
  • Spell vichyssoise

Any of these will work, on your Mac, Apple Watch, or iOS device, as long as the version of the operating system on the device offers Siri as a feature. You will find that, as with most things Siri, there are words you’ll have a bit of a time getting getting her to recognize to spell them.
