About this app

Listen to the app reading aloud or read on screen web pages, news articles, long emails, TXT, PDF, DOC, DOCX, RTF, OpenOffice documens, EPUB, MOBI, PRC, AZW and FB2 ebooks and more. 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.

FEATURES:
* Open text, PDF, DOC, DOCX, RTF, OpenOffice documents or HTML files for reading aloud.
* Now includes OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for extracting text from PDF files, where normal text extraction does not work.
* 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.
* Read eBooks on screen with their original formatting, images shown, turn pages or read continuously. Or put headphones, turn off screen and listen!
* Handles Chinese and Japanese vertical text (right to left mode), or switch it to horizontal mode if preferred.
* Easily add saved Pocket articles to @Voice reading list - in Read List screen, press Menu - Add articles from Pocket, then read on screen or listen being read aloud.

* Pause/resume speech as needed with wired or Bluetooth headset buttons, plus click Next/Previous buttons to jump by sentence or to next/previous article on list.
* Auto-recognize the language to use appropriate TTS voice, if available, or set your preferred voices manually with "Select language" menu item.

The app does a good job of voice to text. I like the quality of the voice. The menu structure is difficult to navigate, making play lists and moving from chapter to chapter is weak. My big problem is the application shuts down after about 6:00 or 7 minutes if you are not open to that window. I've tried various things, the developers say it is my power management program. But that is turned off for this program. No other program Kindle or audio reader has any problem. Only this one. I need help.

The phone is pausing or killing apps that work in background, or when the screen is turned off, to "save battery". Please visit https://hyperionics.com/atVoice/stops.html, click the link related to your phone type. Read and implement the settings suggested there. This is something that only the phone owner can change. Email me if more help needed.

I don't leave reviews generally speaking for apps. This is a notable exception. App does everything I would expect it to and more! It has multiple voices, can use Google and other third party voice plugins, has very good ability to read technical documents, the list goes on. You are essentially forced to buy the $10 full version to get rid of ads and make it useful if you are reading anything more than a few page document. In this case, well worth the money.

This used to be an absolutely fabulous app - the best on the market as far as I was concerned, even better than paid apps - but subsequent to an upgrade about a year or so ago, I lost access to most of the voices, therefore the only voices I'm able to access now sound dreadful (horribly mechanical). Such a shame. Update: I'm changing my rating from 1 to 3 stars because I was able to install a few more voices that sound better. Other than the lost voices issue, it's a really great app still!!
