An iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch can be set up to display a Speak button when text is selected. First, you must enable Speak Selection by opening the Settings app. Choose General → Accessibility → Speech and turn on Speak Selection. Also turn on Highlight Content so that each word is underlined or colored as it is spoken. With Speak Screen enabled, anytime you select text in apps like Notes, Mail, Safari, and Google Docs, a Speak button will appear. Tap that Speak button to hear the text read out loud as it is highlighted.

  • learninginhandThe speech menu hovers above your screen while iOS reads the screen. Use this menu to increase or decrease the speed. You can also use it to skip ahead to other sections of the page. Click the X on the menu to stop the speaking.
