Highlight the text with your cursor.

Mobile? On my phone. I highlight and nothing happens.

If you copy and then paste in the notes app it shows the text. Not ideal, but it works.

Huh.

Works just fine in both Chrome and Brave on Android (Galaxy S9+)

Long-click somewhere in the spoiler, and it will select a word and make it visible. Drag the edges of the selected area to cover all of it. Works in Firefox at least.

Does not work in Firefox or Safari on iPhone XR. I don’t think these phones have long press or something.

Huh. On the one hand, I can understand why Apple would disable long-press entirely, as it provides a rather horribly user experience. But on the other hand, long-press allow a right-click equivalent, which is super useful.

Wait, don't iPhones have that force touch thing, where you click harder and something else happens? Try that.

The xR doesn’t have whatever that is. This is my first iPhone so I have no previous experience of whatever it used to do, but there are a couple of apps that have features that don’t work correctly with this phone because of it.
