Very good but w/ issues. The tts enhancement abilities of this devs' apps are incredible. FBReader is pretty great & this is a must have add-on. Unfortunately it does stop reading quite often. It doesn't handle coming out of background well, usually closing. The sleep timer is a nightmare to deal with & should have been worked on ages & ages ago. It is still great though, especially if you just set the timer, start the playing, lock the device & don't use it at all otherwise until your set time is up (& hope it keeps playing).
Broken patch With latest patch the plugin refuses to even open and I just get the crash report popup. I'm using a nexus 7 2013 edition fully patched and I've tried to reinstall just the plugin and then both it and the reader with no success. As of 28/05/16 with latest update it still won't work on my nexus, I'll click speak and then if I wait a while it will have the pop-up but refuses to play.
Randomly stops. Edit speech ignoring rules. Lock screen controls don't exist on marshmallow and/or Turbo2. Still randomly stops. Recently it's started ignoring edited speech rules. If it's in bold, all caps or a web link, it will not follow the rules you specify and at times it says the words differently from the lower case version. Ex: CHAPTER is pronounced "chapTAR" Seriously. It's annoying. And forget listening to anything converted with ABC lit converter because it reads that out no matter how you set the rule for it.
Great little plugin. If you have issues with it stopping unexpectedly: in my case it's usually because there's too many apps running in the background. Killing them fixes it. Cheers.
Not accessible from FBReader 'Speak' option missing from menu. How are we supposed to use this plugin if it's not actually plugged in? This has been in the past excellent, and truly beloved when working as it should. Have the developers abandoned it? Has there been conflict with FBREADER? Or is Hyperionics' other Tts app with its extortionately priced ad-free version just more interesting ($) at the moment? This problem has existed for months. Last update in March. Their other app got an update a few days ago. PLEASE FIX THIS
Good try Only have a few problems. 1. It turns itself off a lot of time. It does it randomly sometimes when I just turned it on and sometimes after its been on awhile. 2. It would be nice to have more choose on voices.
