The accessibility options of our phones are mainly designed for people with some motor, visual and other problems, although any other user can use these types of functions to make the most of their phone .
We are going to tell you how you can get the phone read aloud the content on the screen so that you can, for example, listen to this article out loud while doing anything else without worrying about your phone.
Phone read aloud the content on the screen of your Android mobile
In the case that we use an Android device, we can activate the Accessibility options to make the contents of our screen read aloud. It is a useful option if, for example, we are busy doing anything else and we want the mobile to tell us what is on the screen. News, messages, and any type of text can be read.
If we talk about Android, we have to go to the accessibility settings. The location of them depends on our personalization layer, so if you do not find them, all you have to do is search for ‘Accessibility’ in the search bar, since all devices have it under this name.
Once here we have to click on ‘List selection’ and activate the option. This allows us to select text or image so that the mobile tells us what it is seeing . Note that in the case of Google this option works quite well , since Google has very controlled the subject of voice control, so it is quite enjoyable to hear the text in this format.
Phone read aloud the content on the screen of your IOS Mobile
If we talk about iOS we must also go to the accessibility options. Here we have to click on ‘VoiceOver’, the Apple option to read the text on the screen. Here we can change the tone, the voice, and other elements. Apple also has quite natural text reading.
The option can be deactivated by following the same process in reverse. The main difference here is that with the iPhone we have to select the text that we want to listen to, while in Android a play button will appear when it detects that there is text on the screen.
