PromptKit Story for dictating and playing a foreign album name or track title


Siri has a hard time deciphering the foreign language song titles and track names.

This shortcut that demonstrates how to use PromptKit to get the language of a song before asking the user for the name of the song/album. If it finds a match, it plays the media item.

Note: For a simpler, non-PromptKit version of this solution, check out Play Song In.


Music Library Map is required because the Find Music action in Shortcuts is case-sensitive. Thus, only one of these entries will result in a valid Music Library search term.

  • Aux Armes Citoyennes
  • Aux armes citoyennes

Dictation, however, may produce the second option more frequently. Music Library Map creates a lookup table for identifying song and album names based on the lowercase version of the names.
