iOS has a number of accessibility options that make iPhones and iPads ideal devices for those with movement, vision, or hearing impairments. Some features, like Speak Selection, are useful for anybody. When enabled, a Speak button appears on the iOS Edit menu. Touch it and iOS reads aloud.
Turn Speak Selection On
- On the Home screen, touch Settings > General > Accessibility.
- Touch Speak Selection, then touch the Speak Selection toggle.
- Optionally, touch the Highlight Words toggle.
Now, select some text and touch Speak.
