Need faster playback rate

I am a long time user of Learning Ally. I go back to the RFB&D days with daisy readers. I used to love using the old app because i could crank up the classic audio rate to a high speed such as 300%, which is very important for getting reading and work done efficiently. As I am dyslexic, I can’t sit down and read a book at 600+ wpm, but I prefer to listen at such high speeds. Now I feel very limited as it sounds like the top speed is only around 200%, or 2x. I can’t get my work done like I used to and it is very frustrating. Honestly I don’t really care how the app functions or looks as long as I can listen at very high speeds. I hope you can fix this. I’m sure that I am not alone as most other folks with dyslexia who I’ve talked to prefer to listen at high rates as well.

This app was suggested to me by one of my school teachers. I just had a brain injury so I couldn’t read regular books I had to listen. I was very worried because we were supposed to read this one book and when I would leave the app it would take me back to the beginning of the book. That would not be much of a problem but there is only limited skips! I tried to hit the next page button and it wouldn’t let me! What’s the point of the button if it doesn’t work? Now I have to read my books the hard way. Thanks anyway

I am a student at the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind, which recently got all its students into learning ally but have not had the chance to get some accounts working. But the app is a clean easy to use innerface and has no bugs with Voiceover. However, if I am in the middle of a book, leave the app, and come back in, the book positions itself in some random position behind where I was. But overall, great experience
