Select text to copy and paste

I like to use my iPad to use ‘text to speech’ app to listen to someone else read what I have written. Lately I’ve been having trouble with the iPad (7th generation) not wanting to select text to paste into the text to speech app.

Has anybody else experienced this problem? Do not have problem in other programs with selecting text.

You need to update to the latest operating system. You try it, I can help you.

Just as a side note: You can do that directly on your iPad and let Siri read the text.
