Changing the speech rate on the Mack?

macOS and Mac Apps

Hi. How are you all?
I have a question, how do you change the speech rate on the Mack? I know that you hold down fn/vo/crl to access this. I mean on the Iphone you know how there's a roder and a speech rate option? I was wondering if there's one like that. When VO is on the Mack it reads fast when reading things in sarafi. I was wondering how to fix this.
Thank you
Have a nice day.

Hello. Hold down vo and cmd keys. Now arrow left and right until you get to speach rate, and arrow up and down with those keys still pressed, and you will get what you want.

Take care.

Hi. Thank you for your reply. Will it slow down the rate when reading things like in sarfi? Because this slows for lists, menus, and on the doc.
Good night.

If you want to change the voice rate on the mac, you hold down the VoiceOver keys and the command key and press the left or right arrows until it says "rate." Then press up and down arrows to select the rate you want. It should stay the same wherever you are.
