Nominated for the best iOS accessible app in 2017 on AppleVis.
Fully featured text to speech app. The first app ever to feature the interactive web on the go. Users can interact with web sites and RSS feeds and pick articles to be read aloud by using headphone or Bluetooth hands-free buttons.
appPicker: "... is a game-changer, and is slowly transforming my life..."
Functions of those audio buttons can be customized which results in high productivity and accessibility. 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). Bookshare, an accessible online library is integrated into the app.
Add a web article to be read aloud from any app that can share a web site link (including any web browser) – just press the Share button in it and starting the speech or saving the text to be read aloud later is only a tap away.
The app is not just a voice reader of the internet content, you can import various text file formats to be read aloud - supported document types are: PDF, 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. Project Gutenberg, a free online library is integrated.
By moving your reading activities to commuting, walking, running, doing the housework or another activity you can save an hour each day. You'll also save eyes for better things while having your battery and data plan last significantly longer. Keeping the screen off grants that you won't get into the internet addiction and waste your time on unwanted things, and thus it can also help to people with ADHD. As a bonus, even if your internet connection is unstable you won't notice any interruptions.
By using the app you'll build your knowledge base in an easy way. Each read text is automatically moved to the Old Articles which supports powerful search and filtering features and keeps it available offline. Annotation tools are there to mark a text as favorite, bookmark an important paragraph in it or add a comment.
Latest iOS features including Siri Shortcuts, the latest visual style, drag and drop, 3D Touch, Spotlight Search, Dynamic Type and Apple Watch 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.
The free version has a daily limitation in the number of articles that you can add to it which is removed by purchasing the Pro add-on. Some features are available only on iOS 11.

Ratings and Reviews
Without this program I would not be able to complete the overwhelming amount of reading that is required for my college courses. You are able to upload articles, and texts on the fly using the upload icon provided on the browser! The program uses life-like voices as well as retains the articles for later, so that I can read as I see fit without reloading. Your program has helped me survive 4 heavy reading courses so far this year. Thank you!
Up and running in no time
First run experience really easy, this app is great for listening to web articles while driving in my car.
I could see this service expanding to point where people could record their reading and get paid by people who listen. Just an idea :)
Definitely one of the best text-to-speech apps on the store
The dev has suggested I update my review, which I will happily do. After installing the latest update of the app, I am no longer experiencing crashes. I am still using iOS 10.3.3, which might've been part of the problem.
Hats off to the developers for prompt responses to users and continual improvement of the app.
An excellent app when it works. It crashes frequently, however — especially after adding a new article from the "share" menu. The crashing may be related to how many items are stored in the app.
Thanks for updating the review. I am grateful for your feedback and feedback of other users that help to shape up the app better.
