Allow Text Selection

Supported In:

Kiosk Pro Lite, Basic, Plus and Enterprise

This setting allows visitors to select text on the screen by touching the screen and dragging their finger to create a text selection.

Default Value: Off

Text selection is disabled by default as the native iOS/iPadOS menu does allow visitors to copy and paste text, which could include private information.

Text selection can also be used in combination with 'Speak Selection', an iOS/iPadOS accessibility feature that allows the device to read selected text out loud to visitors who might otherwise have difficulty with on-screen text. Speak Selection must be turned on separately in the device's Settings > Accessibility menu for 'Speak' to appear as an option for highlighted text.
