Does Siri read reminders aloud? I have set several reminders, thinking I'd hear her speak them aloud when it was time. If I remembered to look at the phone at that time, I wouldn't need to have a reminder!
Same thing with the directions from the Map app.
Am I doing something wrong? How do I get her to read them aloud? When I asked her to do that she said she did not understand what I meant.

I don't have an iPhone 4S so I can't provide you with a definitive answer, BUT from looking at the TV commercials, you can ask Siri "what does my day look like" and she will tell you about any reminders, appointments or iCal events you have set up. You may try saying something like "do I have any reminders for (day/date)?"

On my iPhone 4, when I set reminders I can set an alarm sound either for a specific time or when I get to (or leave) a specific place. Maybe that's all you would need.

I don't think Siri can do what you are looking for, but you can tell Siri to set alarms and reminders then they'll go off at the predetermined time.
