iPadOS 17 new features: Accessibility features
One of the standout features of the newly announced iPadOS 17 is Personal Voice, a machine learning-based feature that allows your iPhone to speak in your own voice.

Essentially, it is a text-to-speech app. These new accessibility features are sure to be a hit with users who rely on voice commands and speech-to-text technology.
