Learn Emoji Meanings on iPhone
Here’s how to set up your iPhone to teach you emoji meanings.
1 | Enable Speak Selection feature
Open your iPhone Settings. Scroll down a bit to Accessibility.
Tap Spoken Content.
Slide the Speak Selection button to the right so it’s green.
NOTE: This won’t affect anything on your phone until you tell it to – so no worries!
2 | Choose Siri’s voice
This step is optional. Use it if you like!
You can change Siri’s dialect, choose male or female, and even different voices than Siri. Just tap Voices and try them out.
Next, if you’re a fast learner, you can make the Speaking Rate faster.
Hard of hearing? Try slowing it down.
