Speech "velocity" differs between iDevices?
Has anybody noticed that the reading velocity using
speech.start()differs between iDevices? Using the value
0.5is fine for my iPad but it is much to fast for my iPhone. A value of
0.1is much more appropriate there. How come? :-)
Perhaps that is relative to the device's default speech rate... have you checked what that is set to in the settings app? IIRC the slider for that is under General > Accessibility.
@dgelessus Your suspicion was right: the speeds seem to be completely different to begin with. I found a slider in the voice over section of the accessibilty setting. To get a normal speed on my iPhone I have to set the slider to about
0.1. Maybe this is a difference between 8.4.1 (iPhone) and 9.2.1 (iPad)? The value of
0.5seems a lot more natural for a medium speed than
0.1so it may have been changed during a release update...
