  So one feature I always wished I had for the iphone/ipad was the "read aloud" option.  Well there is but it is built into the iPhone/iPad settings.  Here is how to use it with your Logo app:

1.  Go to Settings/General/Accessibility/Speech

2.  Enable "Speak Screen"

3.  Open Logos app to book you want to have read to you

4.  swipe down from the top of the screen with 2 fingers.  

*You can adjust the speed, etc.  

**Make sure your menu isn't in view otherwise it will read it too

***It will actually turn the page for you and everything.

I was very excited to see this work.  Let me know if you find this useful.

I tried this the other day, and it's so close.

The reading is a bit stilted, but it's not unlistenable. Unfortunately, most Logos resources are at least of a somewhat technical nature; and the "reader" doesn't deal with those things well. For example, verses - numbers separated by colons - are read as times (hour:minute). Tables are treated somewhat strangely, etc. I think it would work well for popular level literature, without the technical features found in so many bible-related resources. But I can't use it for the books I spend the most time in within Logos.

I really appreciated the pointer.

Did you follow all of the instructions and use TWO fingers to swipe down from the TOP of the screen?

Yes, I have followed all the instructions.  I have to use the 2 finger swipe from the very top Since the 2 finger swipe will scroll down the screen.  I am using iPad mini 2 with the latest ios 8.2 update.

It is working for web pages but not for logos.  When I swipe down I get the little menu with the picture of the turtle, Ect. When I push play all I get is the words saying resource content and then the page is automatically turned.

I notice the suggestion make sure the menu isn't in view.  It is reading enter reference, resource content so it stop at the menu.  The logos 2 finger swipe down seems to override the read aloud feature.  How do you get rid of the top menu?

Does this require iSO8?  Can't get it to work with iOS7.  I've enabled the settings as describe but the two finger swipe down either scrolls the Logos page down or brings the iOS information page showing the date, time, temperature, calendar events etc.

In Web pages it brings up a menu option where I can select speak for selected text and it works fine, but in logos the speak option is not part of the menu Logos App displays

John, are you using the latest Logos app update? When I tested the Speak screen with the update before last it was giving this same problem you're describing, which was fixed with the latest update.
