How to Use Text to Speech on an iPad

In this video, Ben Foss shows a student how to use the “text to speech” feature on his iPad. Ben is a SUPER FAST “ear reader”, but students can personalize the speed of the reader so that they are able to understand and follow along with the text at their own pace.

Have you used this feature on the iPad or another device? If so, please let us know about your experiences with it.

The following video has specific instructions on how to turn on the text to speech feature (aka speech selection) on an iOS device. (Android devices also have this feature and we will post instructions for those devices at a later date).
