A client of mine is a student who uses iBooks a lot. He was getting frustrated with not having a method to listen to iBooks without locking the screen and without notifications interrupting the book. After I showed him how this was possible using the speak screen feature, he suggested I do an audio presentation about this for others who didn’t know about this iOS 8 benefit. A lot of VoiceOver users think that Speak Screen has no benefits for them, but it’s a great feature. Here’s my audio demo of the iOS 8 Speak Screen feature.
