There are apps for the iPhone with audio tools to help you learn how to pronounce a specific word that you search for. For example, one app has a small speaker icon next to the pronunciation that represents each word. Tap to hear how the word sounds. But you don't need a third-party app because iOS has a pronunciation tool built in and you don't even have to leave the current page where you are.
When you read and a word that you are not sure how to pronounce, long press or double-tap it to select it depending on the app you are in. For example, you can do that in Notes, but in Safari you can sometimes only press and hold. After the word is highlighted, the black context menu should appear with options for cut, copy, paste, and so on. If that is not the case, tap the highlighted word once to make it appear.
The option that we are looking for is "Speaking". If you don't see it right away, tap the right arrow to view more options. If you don't see it afterwards, make sure "Speak Selection" is enabled in Settings -> Accessibility -> Spoken Content and try again.
The advantage of Apple's built-in & # 39; Speak & # 39; tool above the pronunciation options of third-party apps is that you can select multiple words at once, so if there is a sentence you're having trouble with, select everything and click & # 39; Speak & # 39 ;. Even better, it also works on emoji & # 39; s, so if you ever wanted to know what that poop emoji really is called, then highlight it and press & # 39; Speak & # 39;
And you're not limited to just your default language – this is also an excellent way to learn what the symbols mean in Japanese or how something spelled in Arabic sounds. Moreover, you don't even have to use it for statements – you can highlight an entire article and press "Speak" to read it to your iPhone.
If you want to change the "Speaking Speed" (how fast it speaks), make it then "Mark content" (if you use this to listen to articles), change "Voices" (if you don't like the standard digital speaker) and more, you can do this from the "Spoken content" settings in "Accessibility" .
