Word definition on iBooks

iOS & iPadOS

Hi folks.
Using IOS 9 I would like to know how to focus on a word and how to get a definition of this word. It seems that voiceOver focuses on the firs word of the page and I couldn't find the way to move that focus.

I hope I amour clear.

If you use the roter to go to words then swipe down you can move word by word however I don't know a way to get the definition.

Well thanks very much for the reply, However I tried actually to use the rotor and swipe to the right word, but it doesn't worK. There's is no way to act on the word you want. The focus remains on the first word of the page. comments are still welcome. Beyond definitions, the idea is more generally to act on a part of the text I.G. getting a definition, underline a part of the text etc.

I'm not sure why it's not working did you try double tapping on the word? I don't have the app so not sure how it works.
