Wow! My phone is awesome in reading to me!
Several people have told me they don't have time to read. I get it. But then, because they are spending much time in their car for their job, they like to listen to books.
"Can I listen to your book as I drive?" they have asked.
Yes, Yes! I just found settings on my iPhone 6 that reads to me after a page is opened from my app. Simply swipe down on that page with two fingers from the top of the screen.
You can even select the voice, choosing an Australian or United Kingdom, Irish, or South African accent, if that is to your liking.
So I have a faded app symbol that overlaps other apps, at the top, left of my screen. It is simply a circle with a right arrow inside. When I touch it, the Safari player opens. Then I touch the play arrow and reading resumes.
In my car I will transmit through the audio system. Really awesome! You can move forward, or backward through paragraphs, adjust the speed of reading, and pause at any time.
One word of caution: don't close the reader, (X), or you will lose your place in the story. Simply shrink, or ignore and it will quickly disappear itself.
