Yesterday I worked with Mr. Armstrong and Ms. Hayes’s 5th graders as they used their iPads to access Time For Kids, National Geographic for Kids, and Washington Post Kids to ‘Listen to Read’ during their Daily 5. Here they are hard at work!
To setup Speech on iPad: Settings / General / Accessibility / Turn speech selection on, then drag speaking rate down. Turn highlight words On. To access Safari, open website, select article, press down finger until you see magnifying glass. Lift finger, drag blue dots to highlight text, tap SPEAK at top of selected text. If magnifying glass does not appear, look in URL bar, if you see READER, tap on that to open, then select text and proceed.
