Description

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.

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 iOS 11 new look, 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.

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 :)

Good effort

FYI - The limitation of the free version is 2 articles (per day). If the software description had included that detail, I would not have downloaded/installed it.

I was temporarily without the use of one eye when I installed the app. I was not in a position to comparison shop among competing apps regarding price & feature set of the paid app. For the free version of the app, I find my rating reasonable. Uninstalled.

Developer Response

It is your personal right to give any review that you like, it is also my personal right to think that it is unfair (and it is partially fact based as I make a comparison to all other users that gave rating to the app). The app is not listed as free, but as freemium and it is expected that you pay for something, if you are not satisfied on how freemium apps are listed in the app store you may contact Apple as it is their own policy and again it shouldn't influence the rating of the app. It is disclosed that there is limitation in the number of items that you may add and if you didn't want that limitation you didn't have to install the app.

Crashes

Jcarson827

This app crashes whenever I attempt to get it to read an uploaded/linked PDF file. Very frustrating.

Developer Response

It would be useful if you could provide some samples or description what you try to do to our support email office@labsii.com. The app imports every pdf in the test, it is tested by Apple to work properly and according to telemetrics many users use this feature without any problems.
