Is there a way to read text messages character by character using Voiceover and the iPhone

iOS and iPadOS

Hello. I've had this question for a very long time. It seems like I can never read text messages character by character even if I go to the rotor and choose characters. Where I would find this most useful would be when ISPS or email services send verification codes to type back to them. It seems like I can't read it as in an edit field. I always have to choose the email option to receive verification codes. I just finished upgrading to the iPhone 11 and I had to add in my email addresses and change some pass words so this would have been a handy feature. Any ideas on this? Am I missing something? Thanks for your help.

You should most definitely be able to rotor by character. Not sure why you aren’t able too.
There’s an easier way with verification texts. When message comes, you don’t need to leave site or app you’re in. Type the field where you enter code... right above the keyboard you should find a link. It will say from messages... tap that and your code is automatically entered into the field. This is only for verifications sent by text, not email.

When you choose character on the rotor
swiping one finger down reads one character.
this works for me and basically everybody.
