It's an HTML reader, document reader and ebook reader all in one, both for reading on-screen, or listening when your eyes hurt, malfunction or are busy elsewhere.

* Click "Share" or "Send by Email" button/menu item in any app to send text to @Voice Aloud Reader for aloud reading over speakers or a headset.
* When sharing web pages to @Voice, their menus, navigation, ads, other junk are removed, leaving clean text to read or listen.
* In WhatsApp use Export Chat function to send chats to @Voice for listening
* If "Share" is not available, copy text in another app and paste it into @Voice for aloud reading.
* Save articles opened in @Voice to files for later listening. Construct listening lists of many articles for uninterrupted listening one after the other. Order the list as needed, e.g. more important articles first.

I'm really enjoying the app for turning epub files into audiobooks, but the one drawback is that I can't find a way to delete the local copy of the files without clearing all of the data (including settings and pronunciation corrections). If I try to open a fresh, modified file, it keeps opening the old version, which means it must be saved somewhere, but I can't find it.

The good: This is a relatively effective option for a bare-bones ebook reader. If you can get a epub file in the right folder, you have a way to access the Android system TTS. The bad: This interface is just plain bad. You may get stuck at some level of interface purgatory with no discernable way to change what the app is doing. The ads are pretty darn intrusive, too.

Immensely helpful but the icons and controls can be much more intuitive. It's a little difficult to pick up using it. It allows you to add a series of items to read aloud, but I never get to use it that way (can it be made easier?) Doesn't integrate into Gmail which would help a lot. It's not the app's fault, but even the best (device) installed voices are not entirely natural... and they are out there, on websites. Support this developer, it's worth $10!!
