This app downloads newly recorded news and magazine articles from the Cotswold Listener. Each article is accompanied by a text headline (for the partially sighted) and a spoken headline for the blind user. The user can then select to listen to the full article, or move onto another story. All articles are saved, so the user is not restricted by the need for a network connection. Articles older than 30 days are automatically deleted. Stories can be paused – resumed at any time, and listened to in a continuous loop.
To support use by totally blind users, the app utilises the accelerometer (g sensor) to allow the user to navigate through articles by tilting the device left to right, and up and down. Partially-sighted uses are supported by very large text and the ability to select from a range of text/background colour contrasts. The app can also be navigated by touch/gesture alone if preferred.
...ah...it's a talk show... but what should I be talking about... Well, I guess I'm just gonna talk about me, things I like, what's happening at school, etc etc... Like how I love fortune-telling and playing around with digital gadgets. Oh you know what? I just assembled my own PC the other day! Anyway, tune in to my show and see for yourself!
Launch, tap, and interact with me! Answer my questions
and I might use your feedback for the show next day. The show is
updated several times every day with the latest news and tons more!
What's cool is that this app is free! It would be even cooler if you
subscribe for additional shows and support my extracurricular
activity! I'm trying to get my friends on the show too!
I'm running on this motion technology called
'Live2D' which is why I appear and move so real! Oh and it looks like there will be some game function inside the app too!
Some parts in this app may show up in Japanese language. Great way to learn Japanese, right?
The strength of this software is that it not only uses speech recognition but also has built-in smart filters that ensure that only the actual contents of each newspaper article is read aloud. Advertising, web links, etc. are filtered out and thus not spoken.
This app is also suitable for use by the blind and visually impaired.
To open a list with all newspapers you can say or type:
To open a particular newspaper you can use the menu or say / type:
- "Associated Press".
- "BBC Sport".
- "Daily Mail".
- "Daily Mirror".
- "Herald Tribune".
- "New York Times".
- "Sunday Times".
- "The Telegraph".
- "The Times".
- "Washington Post".
You will sometimes be asked to be more specific, because virtually every newspaper is divided into several sections or
categories. However, you can also select the desired item from a list box.
Listen carefully to the titles in the list of available newspaper categories so you can call them directly. For example, say "New York Times Business".
This manual can also be read aloud by saying "Help" or "Userguide".
If you want more information about a particular newspaper you can say: "Help me with" followed by the newspapername.
Example: "Help me with The Independent".
We recommend that you select (or install) a good quality English speaking voice (eg from SVOX, Acapela and/or Ivona) for your Android. The built-in Google Pico in your Android will also do, but there are more pleasant voices in the Google Playstore.
If you like this app then we refer you also to our "BRAINZ" Personal Assistant software which offers more than 1200 similar features.
We wish you lots of pleasure with this software.

They signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records after being formed and finishing third in the seventh series of the British televised singing competition The X Factor in 2010. Propelled to international success by the power of social media, One Direction's three albums Up All Night, Take Me Home and Midnight Memories released in 2011, 2012 and 2013 respectively, broke several records, topped the charts of most major markets, and generated hit singles, which include "What Makes You Beautiful" and "Story Of My Life".
Their achievements include two BRIT Awards and four MTV Video Music Awards among many others.

They were proclaimed 2012's "Top New Artist" by Billboard. By April 2013, the band had an estimated personal combined wealth of £25 million. After the release of Midnight Memories, One Direction became the first band in Billboard 200 history to have their first three albums debut at no. 1. Additionally, the album was a global success, debuting at #1 on the UK Albums Chart and US Billboard 200 albums chart and becoming the fastest and biggest selling album of 2013 in the UK.

For over a decade, prior to his retirement, Dr. Monteith led a delegation of physicians from Santa Cruz County to the House of Delegates of the California Medical Association. For 10 years he led the battle within organized medicine in California to address the AIDS epidemic as a medical issue rather than a civil rights issue. As a result of his experiences trying to implement an effective medical approach to the HIV epidemic, he wrote the book, "AIDS: The Unnecessary Epidemic", the widely circulated pamphlet, "To Deceive a Nation", and more recently, "A Nation Deceived and Betrayed." Supported by physicians across our nation, his public health approach to the HIV epidemic was eventually accepted by the California Medical Association. Unfortunately, powerful forces continue to oppose the dictates of doctors. Dr Monteith currently spends five hours daily on talk radio in California. He writes extensively, and lectures on geopolitics. He has spent 30 years researching the causes for America's spiritual and moral decline.
