Good app, just please change that eyesore of an icon. App works well and has good functionality but the icon is really ugly and outdated so please change into something smaller and more modern looking that fits in with other app icons. Thanks.
@voice Amazing app, completed my book whilst driving and even having a meal
Very good app. The user interface is a little complicated. Watch out for the high battery drain because generating audio seems pretty battery consuming.
This TTS software works well and plays well with my tablet's speech options. I've had little difficulty with it reading pdf or epub ebooks. There are some quirks that I hope will be corrected in future updates, though. For instance, it consistently pronounces words differently if they are possessive or contractions. Also, I haven't yet found a way to prevent the program from immediately reading out something the instant I copy it to the clipboard, even while I'm already listening to something else.UPDATE: I found the button to shut off the copied-to-clipboard reading right after I complained about it (I'd been looking in the open program rather than the notification). And I wholeheartedly appreciate the quick and useful response from the devs. I'll be contacting them with whatever notes I make about mispronounced words. This level of service adds a 5th star for quality, in my opinion. Thanks, Hyperionics!
retarded It will take a pdf and split up a word : like th i s and then read t,h,i,s. Completely useless app.
My initial review was very positive, however now this app has become so buggy its barely usable: - On my latest phone it does not properly detect the license key app, I need to uninstall and reinstall it to get the ads away every time I use it. - The selection of which voice (which language, voice engine and individual voice) is forgotten or is garbled. I have to select it again from the start. This is even forgotten when the app is pushed in the background by android. - The selection whether a web page is displayed as a whole or the main text is extracted is not retained properly (the setting displayed is ok, but what the app actually displays is not). - The setting whether the screen is scrolled along with the read text does not work correctly. I need to turn off the phone (or rather display) and on again for it to scroll to the current position. It appears to me there might be a general issue when it comes to saving and restoring app settings when the app is turned off or pushed to the background. The above issues may not apply to all phones, however. Please test on more phones and fix this!
