Thank you for doing podcast on this. unlike the audio demonstration, my voiceover does not read the words continuously. I have to keep swiping left and right to check out the lyrics.
I am using iPhone 8 with the latest Ios.
Any suggestions I can try?

Hi Yoo Jin,

Yes. Go to Settings -> Accessibility -> VoiceOver -> Always Speak Notification and turn this to ON. Let me know if that works! ;)

Thank you for your suggestion. I turned on the voiceover setting, but but nothing has changed.
I would play a song in the background, and Vo still remains silent.
I even tried turning off Vo and put it back on.
Is there any other setting I need to change?

Hi. Loved listening to this podcast, but it doesn't work for me. I am using a 6S+ and have the latest IOS for it which is 12 point something. Is this why this lyrics feature won't work for me? I double tap on the name of the song in the bottom left, after I have passed the miniplayer part and what comes up is a reorder songs page. If I go from the left to the right at the top, it does give me a choice for lyrics, which then I can hear, all at once not line by line. I wish I could make it work like it works in the Podcast, is it because I am using an older phone it doesn't?
