So I’m giving you the option of referring to my bare-bones instructions about how to use Apple’s VoiceOver feature to narrate anything on your iPhone's screen, from a Kindle book to a web page.
I recommend you copy and paste my instructions into something that can be printed. The learning curve is under 10 minutes, I promise!
VOICEOVER NARRATION CHEAT SHEET
This little document is intended for iPhone users who, like me, are unwilling to pay a huge premium to hear our Kindle or other ebooks narrated.
The instructions below use the fewest possible VoiceOver touch-activated commands to turn on and off narration of whatever is on your screen. Learning curve is under 10 minutes and you’ll remember what to do next time!
Use VoiceOver to narrate ebooks from Kindle and its competitors, or any on-screen body of text, like the contents of a web page. Use it with any ebook — Audiobooks or Audible Narration or Whispersync options are not required!
I have included only the touch-based commands that work reliably. And I’ve left out touch commands for navigating, menu selection, and other functions. Believe me, you don’t want to learn them.
Instead, I recommend you navigate as you normally would to the body of text you want narrated, and only then activate VoiceOver.
Before trying narration, it’s best to set up a shortcut to VoiceOver so you can fire it up from any app. This is a one-time operation, and is described directly below.
Create a shortcut to turn VoiceOver on or off from any app
- Go to Settings, then select General, then Accessibility, then scroll to the bottom of the screen.
- Select Accessibility Shortcut, then select VoiceOver.
And that’s it! From now on, whenever you want narration, simply triple-click your iPhone's Home button. Turn narration off the same way.
Okay, let’s get ready to listen to your favorite ebook!
Turn on VoiceOver
- Navigate as you normally would to the beginning of the document or web page you want narrated.
- Triple-click the Home button to turn on VoiceOver.
Narrate the text on the screen
(Please note, the command to begin narration from the top of the page is unreliable, so I’m documenting the next-best option.)
- Touch the first accessible word at the top of the page. (Kindle allows you to select only certain words.)
- Use two fingers to swipe down the screen. You should hear an activation click. Wait a couple of seconds for narration to begin.
Narration will commence from the selected word and continue to the end of the document, even if the text is not on-screen. Be patient as VoiceOver looks ahead and selects the next section of the text to narrate.
Pause and restart narration
- When narration is playing, pause it by tapping the screen once with two fingers.
- To resume narration from where it left off, tap the screen once again with two fingers.
Turn off VoiceOver
Do this you want to end narration and return your iPhone to its normal functionality.
- Triple-click the Home button
Narration will cease and your iPhone will be returned to normal operations.
SOME VOICEOVER OPTIONS FOR EASIER LISTENING
This section is totally optional. You need none of the choices below to use the narration feature. But in time you might want to make changes to type of narration you hear. That is when you might want to check out the options below.
Change the narrator's voice and speaking style:
- Go to Settings, then select General, then select Accessibility, and finally select VoiceOver. You will see a list of VoiceOver options. (NOTE: Do not activate the VoiceOver on/off slider at the top of the list!)
- To speed up or slow down the narrator's speaking rate, move the Speaking Rate slider left for slower or right for faster.
- To change the narrator's voice, select Speech, then Voice, and pick a male or female voice from the list. (I’m partial to Moira (Enhanced).)
Feel free to experiment with other options in the VoiceOver section. Because the voice is computer generated, it will never be as natural-sounding as a human narrator. (In five years I’ll bet it will be indistinguishable from human!)
But if you’re like me and enjoy your favorite novel read to you during a long drive, I think you’ll find Apple's VoiceOver feature more than adequate. Plus, it works with everything and the price is right.
I don't need Accessability's help to navigate commands.
How do you get voice over to start reading the text? To stop? To go to the next page?
I never realized how difficult it was to listen to a book on your tablet. Kindle wants you to purchase an audio book along with the price of the book itself.
I have some programs that will read certain books to me out loud, just not mobi's because of how they now come to me in a folder.
We attempted to try different IOS devices and got really frustrated-best to just let the tablet do it all.
The big picture is :"How to navigate around a purchased book". Simply,organize the instructions in this order:What functions are available?How do I invoke each one? [gesture or tap or swipe ]Here is an example[a visual].Why is this function useful?Here is a related function.
Here is an action [gesture,tap,swipe etc ],this is the function it invokes etc
In summary, the information is organized in a way that is frustrating when related to the overriding process of the user.
