Speak selection issues iOS 16.1


Hi Everyone

We are having a huge issue with speak selection on iPad OS 16.1.

When you select text it will either not read the text at all or will only read one word.

Is anyone else having the same issue? We have tried beta version 16.2 and it still seems like a bug.

Hi Mark,

Please be sure to report this issue to Education AppleCare (800 800 2775 Option 3, 1, 3) as they may have some troubleshooting steps to address the problem as well as provide impact if others have reported the same issue.

Clear the cache - or all web browsing data. It can be done through settings safari… Cache overloaded and speak selection goes on strike! Very easy fix once you know how 👍🏼
