Google Assistant is helpful because it has a lot of features. For example, you can tell Google to read the text on the screen. If the “Read my screen” option is turned on, Google Assistant will read the text on the screen when asked to. This is helpful because you won’t have to read the text. After all, Google will do it for you. This article will tell you how to turn this feature on and have Google read the text on your screen.
Enable Read On-Screen Text On Google Assistant
You can use this feature if you don’t want to read the text on your screen. But for this feature to work, you must first set up Google Voice Match on your device. After that, only Google Assistant can read you the text on the screen.
The whole process will be broken up into two parts. In the first part, you’ll learn how to set up a voice match, and in the second, you’ll find out how to turn on the read-on-screen feature. Here are the steps you need to take:
Set Up Voice Match
As we’ve already discussed, you’ll need to set up a voice match on Google Assistant first. If you’ve already done that, you can skip this step. If not, you can do it by following the steps below:
- Open the Google app on your device as a first step.
- Now, tap the profile icon in the upper right corner and Settings.
- Tap Google Assistant here.
- Tap Hey Google & Voice Match on the next screen.
- Now, turn on the switch that says, “Hey, Google.”
- Tap Voice Model and then follow the instructions on the screen to set up the voice match.
Enable Read On-Screen
Now that you have set up Google Assistant to match your voice, you will need to turn on screen context. Follow the steps below to do so:
- Say Ok, Google, and Open Assistant Settings to get to your device’s Assistant settings.
- Tap on “General” and then “Screen Context” here. You can open the Screen Context by looking for it in the search bar.
- Here, turn on the Screen Context switch.
- Now, go to the screen you want Google to read.
- Say “Hey, Google, Read It” when you see it.
- Google will now start reading the words on your screen.
Read-On Screen Settings
You can set the reader up in a few ways to make it work best for you. You can play, pause, or change the speed at which Google reads the text.
- This button, “Pause/Play,” will be in the middle of the bottom. Tap this button to stop or restart the reader.
- You can change the speed with the button in the bottom right corner. Tap this button and move the slider to the left to slow down or to the right to speed up. Tap “Done” when you’re finished to save the changes.
This is how you can use the “read-on-screen” feature to have Google read the text on the screen to you. If you follow the steps above, you can ask Google to read the text on your screen. We hope this article helps you find what you’re looking for. If it did, please let us know in the comments.
