Let Your iPhone Read Text To You

You can set your iPhone up so it can read the text of an article, webpage or other content to you using Siri or another voice. Use this if you have a vision issue or just want to listen to some content instead of read it.

    Using spoken content is fantastic for foreign languages.
    I can speak Japanese but cannot read it. When someone sends me an email in Japanese kanji ( the Written form) ,I get Siri to read it to me.
    I can also use Siri to dictate my spoken Japanese into written Japanese kanji. I can then have it read back to me to check what is written is correct. This is such a handy feature for any Asian based Non-alphabetical language. You need to have the language installed of course. Hope this helps.

    Hi Gary, Do you know of any way to get Siri to read the number of steps from the health app on her iPhone 6S? My Mum is visually impaired and can't read the screen. Siri won't read the actual number of steps. I haven't been able to make it work. Thanks in advance.

    Wendy: Would she be able to see it if it was larger? (There are many different types of visual impairment). Maybe teach her to use the screen zoom function. It would help her in other places as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QnUtrF7EOM
