Hi, I'm Skylar. If you want your iPad to read to you, you can do that by enabling a certain accessibility feature called VoiceOver. To do so, let's go to settings, tap settings, tap general, scroll down to the bottom, tap accessibility, tap VoiceOver. The first thing you probably want to do is adjust the speaking rate. I bring mine way down here. Now, you're going to turn on and use pitch change as well and I am going to rather than just turning VoiceOver on from here, I'm going to go back to the main accessibility menu and scroll down to the bottom and tap triple click. So triple click home allows me to toggle things on or off just by click, click, clicking the home button. So I'm going to make sure that VoiceOver is checked off. So now I'm going to go back over to my reader application of choice. You could use Kindle, Nook, it will even read Safari pages but I'm going to use iBooks. So iBooks and here's the pages I want to read. I am going to triple click my home button to turn VoiceOver on. So VoiceOver is reading everything that it sees out loud to me. I'm going to swipe a few times to the right in order to get to the main body of the text or rest your finger on the text. There we go, there you go. Swiping left or right , pretty good, not bad at all. I think that you could do a lot worse than being read out loud to by that voice. Enjoy. I'm Skylar. Thanks for tuning in.
