How to make Safari read a webpage aloud to you

2 min read

Here’s a neat but hidden trick Safari can do: read a webpage aloud to you. This comes in handy for getting multiple things done at once, such as typing while catching up on a news article or having recipes read to you while you cook. Follow the steps below to get Safari to read to you on your MacBook or iPad.

Get Safari to read a webpage to you in OS X

1. Tap the Reader View icon in the browser bar. 

This will make Safari show you only the main website content. Otherwise, Safari will attempt to read every word on the page, including navigation menus and other details you don’t need to hear.

2. Go to Edit > Speech > Start Speaking.

Safari will immediately start reading the content on the webpage. Unfortunately, there’s no pause or speed controls available directly in Safari. However, you can customize the voice and speaking rate in the System Preferences app. Go to System Preferences > Dictation & Speech > Text to Speech to customize the voice you hear:

To stop the reading in Safari, go to Edit > Speech > Stop Speaking.
