"this is a game changer. I am a visually impaired math student and have struggled to access content in an accessible format. It's great to be able to access my math books in time. The quality is also very good."
"I like to listen to my textbooks in audio. this provides me the flexibility to do that. What is amazing is how complex layout such as tables and multi-column content can also be easily understood. Thanks for the good work."
"It is hard to read text or content in videos, especially when someone is sharing their screen and I can't see the content. with this app I can do all of that and more."
