Top e-book reader

Nick Apostolidis

Top in accessibility, easy to use and full of great features, voice dream reader is the most frequently used app on my iPhone.
The thing to realise is that it can't play protected audio. That's also true for drm protected e-books.
That is a limitation supper-emposed by content providers and it is an issue effecting people with reading difficulties,regardless of operating system.
One last thing that is important to me, I'd rather read a pdf file using vd than using my laptop with either NVDA or JARS.
That says a lot about how important vd is for me.

Will be well used


I can see myself using this often at night and on my way to work for my studies. I simply opened my pdf textbook using this app and it is read to me in an easy to the ear voice.

Best ebook and article reader


Load it with ebooks and articles from Instapaper. Buy a nice voice. Spend hours listening.
