    Duplicate threads merged. Do you see the Select to Speak option in the Accessibility menu in the first place?

    In the title of your duplicate thread, you mentioned it's a Huawei phone -- which one? You also mentioned it's running the "latest version of Android" -- do you mean 9.0 (Pie)? Or is it the latest version for that phone? Please be more specific.

    Thanks for merging the threads (I had to register before being able to reply to your previous post).

    It's a Huawei P20, using Android version 9.

    Thanks.

    Ok, and do you actually see the option in the Accessibility Menu?

    Yes, the function is there and all steps work fine up to the point where the icon should appear and just doesn't. I'm wondering if it's anything to do with Google withdrawing support to Huawei as part of US sanctions against China.

    I don't think it has to do with the ban, because that hasn't fully taken effect yet anyway. Does this happen in Safe Mode as well? https://www.getdroidtips.com/huawei-p20-into-safe-mode/

    But why would there be any interference from third party apps?

    There are many ways in which a glitchy 3rd party app can interfere with the system -- I don't have the technical knowledge to give details. It's a simple enough troubleshooting step to test it in Safe Mode, so give it a try.
