||The content can be read aloud
||Focus on the beginning of a paragraph or a sentence and initiate reading with text-to-speech using a feature of the reading system.
||A read aloud feature is provided. The reading starts at the top of the currently displayed text. There are controls to move the reading position back and forwards.
||Stop and resume reading
||Initiate reading from any point in the book. Stop Read Aloud and note the last read position. Initiate reading again using the Read Aloud feature and check if reading starts at the last read location.
||Pause and resume reading works as expected.
||The Read Aloud feature should continue until interrupted by the user
||The Read Aloud feature should continue until interrupted by the user, keeping the text being spoken in view.
||Reading continues beyond the bottom of the current screen, and the display scrolls automatically so the text being read remains in view.
||All text should be read in the proper order
||Sample text has been provided below to test the reading order. The Paragraph 2 should be read after Paragraph 1 by the Read Aloud feature. Note that visually Paragraph 2 is placed to the left of Paragraph 1 but it is second in the reading order.
||Change Read Aloud reading speed
||It should be possible to adjust (increase/decrease) the speed of reading.
||The read aloud control bar includes a setting button. This provides for adjusting the read aloud speed. Furthermore, the voice and pitch can be changed, and the user can select whether alt text is announced. Some helpful text also informs the user about Talkback.
||Text to Speech handles punctuations and document structure appropriately
||When Read Aloud is activated, there should be slight pauses after headings, list items etc., rather than reading as if it is one continuous section of text.
||The text is read aloud as expected.
||Text is emphasised as it is spoken by read aloud
||Check if the Text is emphasised as it is spoken by read aloud.
||A yellow word highlight follows the read aloud.
||The emphasis or highlight colour can be changed
||Activate Read Aloud feature as described in the previous test. Change the colour of emphasis or visual highlight of the text being read aloud using any feature available in the reading system or the operating system. The users should have a choice of different colours for text highlighting.
||The visual highlighting cannot be customized or turned off.
