Description:
TextAloud lets you listen to text on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Features include word highlighting and also adjustable display colors, brightness and text size. Another helpful option is Auto-Lock While Speaking, which lets you keep your display turned on while speaking is in progress, then once speaking has completed, the display will work with your normal auto-lock setting. TextAloud registers on your device as an app that can handle text files and it includes integration with Dropbox. Two excellent US English voices by Acapela (Sharona, a female voice and Ryan, a male voice) are included with TextAloud. More Acapela voices are available through in-app purchase. A total of 92 Acapela voices including 27 different languages are offered. As TextAloud does include the two voices with the initial app purchase, it is a sizable file (120MB) so we recommend using a WiFi connection for an easier download. NextUp.com is pleased to be offering our new TextAloud App for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices. Since 2000, we have served hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers who use our TextAloud PC software. Our TextAloud App is a basic reader so it does not yet have many of the features in the TextAloud PC version, but we think you will find it useful and we plan to continue improving it. TextAloud helps many with dyslexia or other reading disabilities improve reading and comprehension. Also business people, students at all levels, writers, lawyers, second language learners, and more find TextAloud to be an essential tool they use daily.
