Can Android read selected text?

Episode 1227 (33:04)

Carlos from Brea

Carlos has made the switch from iOS to Android and wants to be able to select a paragraph of text and then have Android read it. Leo says that iOS has great accessibility features and he doesn't think that Android can do that. But the new iPhones would enable him to select text and then use 3D Touch to bring up a cursor so he could highlight easier. Google's text to voice engine is very good though, but it only reads files. He should check the accessibility settings.
