CDWH2 - No Speech

Applies To

  • Clicker Docs for iPad


You do not hear speech when expected, such as when completing a sentence in the Document or tapping a word with Sound Shift enabled.


Check that the sound on your iPad is not muted and that the volume is turned up. As well as enabling Rotation Lock, your iPad's side switch will mute most sounds when enabled.

For more information about the side switch, including the ability to disable automatic muting, please view this Apple support article:


By default, Clicker Docs will speak each sentence when it is punctuated. It can also speak each word/letter that is sent to the Document from a Word Bank/the on-screen keyboard.

To configure these options, tap the spanner/wrench icon in the top right corner, then tap Speech.

You can also tap the blue Sound Shift icon towards the left of the Grid Toolbar, then tap a word/letter to hear it spoken. Tap Sound Shift once for single use, tap twice to keep it enabled.
