According to Apple, it is one of the most forward-looking companies when it comes to accessibility. Despite its imperfections, it does a good job of it as well. It would be easy to think that something like an Apple Watch doesn’t offer much accessibility due to its small size, but you would be incorrect. In addition, the watch can be programmed to speak the time, regardless of which watch face is selected.
It’s really nice – and gorgeous too! Apple now offers a broader implementation of Disney watch faces with the ability to speak the time. You can easily set it up and use it. Now let’s get started.
How to make your Apple Watch speak the time for you
For the service to work, you will need to enable the feature called “Speak Time.”
- To get started, head to the Apple Watch Settings app.
- Swipe the screen or turn the Digital Crown to scroll down and tap “Clock”.
- Turn on “Speak Time”.
- You must decide whether Silent Mode should be respected. Select “Control with Silent Mode” With this checkbox selected, the time will only be announced when Silent Mode is not active. Enable speak time if necessary.
You only need that configuration. Now Let’s see how to use this feature.
