How do I turn on text labels?

Text labels are available to support learning in Explorer's Library apps: The Human Body, Plants, Homes, Simple Machines, The Earth, Weather, and Skyscrapers.

While you are playing the app, tap the key in the top left corner to reveal a toolbar. Then tap the gear at the top to reveal more buttons. You’ll see a label icon that you can tap on and off. By default, labels display in the language native to your device. If you’ve selected multiple languages (under Settings on your device), you can toggle through them by tapping on the letters that appear to the right of the label icon (examples: en, de, fr for English, German, and French).

In The Earth, labels appear in close-up scenes. Tap on a white circle to view close-up scenes. Then tap on the label icon in the upper left corner to turn the labels on and off.
