Make your phone read to you
Got a minute?
There is a way to get your phone to read messages and on-screen texts out loud to you, and I'll show you how to do it.
For Apple iPhones you have two options, speak selection or speak screen.
Turn them on by going to settings General accessibility and speech.
With Speak Selection, select the text and then tap to speak.

For Android phones make sure you have the Google app text to speech installed.
Go to settings, accessibility, and look for select to speak.
This option may be in a different section depending on your phone.
Tap the speech bubble icon on screen and drag your finger, or tap an item to hear it read out loud.
