Make Your iPhone or iPad Read for You
Podcasts and audiobooks are really popular these days—and for a good reason. Hearing books is the perfect way to multitask and learn at the same time. That being said, audiobooks can be pretty expensive.
Fortunately, Apple users have another way to listen to books. Thanks to a feature called Spoken Content, you can make your iPhone or iPad read for you. And not just books, websites, and more work too! Here’s how to use it:
- Open the Settings app.
- Go to Accessibility.
- Tap on Spoken Content.
- Turn on Speak Screen and Speak Selection.
Speak Screen makes your iPhone read everything that’s on your screen, whereas Speak Selection will show a Speak button when you select text.
If you’re using Speak Screen, you’ll need to swipe down with two fingers from the top of your screen. A small menu will pop up, and your iPhone will start reading whatever is on the screen.
Granted, it’s not the most soothing voice you’ve heard, but it’ll get the job done if you need to read something for school or work.
