Text Speech

The iOS PDF text to speech feature uses Apple APIs to guess the language of the document. By default the language is automatically detected using a framework function provided by Apple. This works for many documents but sometimes guesses wrong. If you know the language of the document, we suggest setting it manually by setting the selectedLanguage property of the PSPDFSpeechController, which can be accessed via the via the shared PSPDFKit configuration instance.

PSPDFKit.sharedInstance.speechController.selectedLanguage = documentLanguage
1
PSPDFKit.sharedInstance.speechController.selectedLanguage = documentLanguage;

The PSPDFSpeechController has additional properties to control speed rate and pitch.
