Hi there Charlotte and welcome

All iPads with the latest OSX can do Text to speech

To enable this

  1. Launch “Settings” and tap on “General”
  2. Scroll down to “Accessibility” and tap on “Speak Selection”
  3. Slide to “ON” and adjust the “Speaking Rate” slider to an appropriate setting

Then to use Text to Speech

  1. Tap and hold on any text until the selector tool comes up
  2. For a single word, tap “Speak”, otherwise to speak everything tap on “Select All” followed by “Speak”

Once speech has started the “Speak” button turns to “Pause”, making it easy to halt and resume any spoken text
