Jay has reached the end of his rope with his father's iPad. It won't read emails with Siri. Leo says that it's possible that his dad's iPad is old and as such, some features aren't supported anymore. Apple could have broken that feature during an update. It could be that the accessibility settings have been turned off. Look in the settings to see if the speech controller is enabled. Go into the accessibility settings and make sure the settings are enabled. Leo tried it with his iPad Mini, and it didn't work either. So it could be that Siri is just plain broken.
