iOS6 speaks to me in a crisp British accent

 I have been playing with the Accessibility settings on my iOS6 install and I found this nice surprise.  If you use Speak Selection your phone will 'read', out loud, what you have highlighted.  I prefer the British English Dialect, but you should select your favorite.

How to do it?

Pretty simple.
  1. Go into to Settings, select General
  2. Select Accessibility
  3. Select Speak Selection
  4. Turn on Speak Selection
  5. Turn on Highlight Words
  6. Select Dialects
  7. Select your favorite Dialect
  8. Open an email, Select a block of text, Select Speak
  9. Listen and follow along as the word are highlighted
Have with your new assistant!
