Speak to me iPhone!

Would you like to have your iPhone or iPad read your email to you?  Follow these simple steps to enable this feature:

  1. Go into Settings, then General, then Accessibility, and finally turn Speak Selection to ON.

  2. Use the slider to choose the speed of the speaking rate.

  3. Open any email message and highlight the text you want read to you.

  4. Tap on Speak

Dictation Anyone?

You can also use the Dictation feature of your iPhone 4S or iPad3 to record what you say into an email, and convert it to text.  Create a new email, and then tap on the Microphone button on the keyboard.  Begin speaking, and when

you are done speaking, click on Done.  The text will then be placed in the email.

The Dictation feature will work just about anywhere on your iPhone or iPad where you have a keyboard.  I use it all the time for texting.
