Does your iPad speak auto-corrections whenever it replaces a word or capitalizes something that you are typing?
This is a feature that many people dislike, but it can be difficult to find the location where you need to go to disable it.
Fortunately, it is something that you can turn off, and it is found on the same menu as a couple of other options that may automatically speak text on your iPad.
So continue reading below and learn the steps to follow when you need to stop your iPad from speaking your auto-corrections.

Turn Off the Auto-Correct Speech on the iPad
The steps below were performed on an iPad 2 in the iOS 8 operating system. The steps are very similar to earlier versions of iOS, but your screens may look slightly different than those in the images below.
Step 1: Touch the Settings icon.
Step 2: Select General from the column at the left side of the screen.
Step 3: Select the Accessibility option.
Step 4: Select the Speech option.
Step 5: Touch the button to the right of Speak Auto-text to turn it off. You will know that it is disabled when there is not any green shading around the button. For example, it is turned off in the image below.
Now that you know how to get rid of the auto-correct voice on the iPad, you won’t need to hear that speech whenever you need to fix an error in something that you have typed.
