Speech Central: School Reader
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This edition of text to speech app is specially crafted for schools to make learning more productive and accessible, helping everyone to find his way to better grades and greater knowledge.
With 11 supported text file formats, you can import any material to be read aloud - supported document types are: PDF* (imported in an intelligent way so that repetitive text in headers and footers is skipped), Microsoft Word (.docx), Microsoft PowerPoint (.pptx), OpenOffice/LibreOffice (.odt, .odp), .html, .txt, .rtf, supported ebook formats are .epub, DAISY and .fb2 and emails in .eml format. All those formats will work only if a document has no DRM (PDF files with passwords can be imported).
The app can also import the content of web pages with a special care to limit this access only to the safe content by receiving only the pages shared from Safari.
The app is tested to be accessible with VoiceOver by legally blind users. It can be used as an assistive technology and helper for people with visual impairments and disabilities like dyslexia (dyslexia friendly font is included in the app), and it contains many settings specially crafted for those purposes. Bookshare, an accessible online library is integrated into the app.
To pass the exams successfully requires more than just reading - annotation and search are necessary. Annotation tools are there to mark the document as favorite, bookmark an important paragraph in it or add a comment. Old texts are kept in the Archive which supports powerful search and filtering features and keeps it available offline.
When used with stock iPhone headphones, the app offers unmatched accessibility and productivity. Those headphones can invoke multiple commands with their buttons, and functions of those commands can be customized to navigate and annotate the text efficiently without touching the screen.
Latest iOS features including iOS 11 new look, drag and drop, 3D Touch, Spotlight Search and Dynamic Type are fully supported. The app can be used with any of 27 languages that have text-to-speech support on iOS, and all major languages are supported for the full automatic recognition.
