Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Reader mode, and saving pages to your reading list, part of iPad Tips and Tricks.
- Even with the iPad's larger screen,…sometimes when you come across text-heavy pages,…it's difficult to read the text without having…to pinch out to zoom in,…and often, when you get the text to a legible size,…you then have to drag the page back and forth…to be able to read everything.…But Safari is able to detect large chunks of text…on most web pages,…and when it does, you'll see this button appear…on the left side of the address bar.…When you first load the page, you'll also briefly…see the message "Reader View Available."…Let me reload the page so you'll see that message.…So you can see "Reader View Available" appears…and then I see the address of the page.…
To the left of the address, I see the Reader button.…Whenever this button appears, tapping it brings up…a version of the web page with just the text…and embedded images, ignoring the layout of the page itself…and any other distractions, such as ads…and interface elements, are hidden.…So as you can see here, I now see the title of the page,…the image, and if I scroll down I can now read the text…
