The Speechify app can scan any book or printed text and read it out loud to you.

  1. In the app, tap the + icon or Add in the bottom left corner of the screen

  2. Select Scan Pages

  3. Allow the app to access your phone camera

  4. Point the camera at the page and tap the Scan button to save the image. You can choose - Single Page or Book. Tip: use good lighting and take your photo close to the text.

  5. Repeat for all the pages you want to add. All the pages you scan here will save as a single file in your library.

  6. Tap the Photo icon in the bottom right corner of the scan screen to view all the images you scanned. If you need to crop the pictures, tap on any photo.

  7. Tap Save & Listen to process the pages. When they've finished processing, all the pages will save to a single file and open in a new listening screen. You can listen to it right away.

  8. If you don't want to listen right away, your pages will save to your library as a single file you can listen to any time.
