Im glad your enjoying it. He has a way with words doesn't he? Lol. I like the humor he adds to it. It makes it that much better.
So I updated the Dropbox link and added Unbroken Brain. Just download the ebook, it be at the bottom of the online folder and then download this ebook reader. When you load the book there is a voice icon on the top toolbar. You select that and from there you can change the speed, tone and accent voice to make it sound more natural. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.prestigio.ereader
Here's a list of sites that have a huge open source library of free e and audio books. I hope this helps.
I use Prestigio which has a nice modern UI and all the controls you asked for in-app along with stuff like choosing the voice, speed, and pitch. Check it out!
Honestly at this point your options are between retro kindle, cataract surgery, and audiobooks.
Maybe give this app a try and buy a cheap android tablet?
I used this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.prestigio.ereader
It was a little clunky but worked and you could pick the accent so that made the voice sound a little less robotic.
I'm sure there are a ton of other text reader apps out there but this one worked for me 2yrs ago for A+
Just keep track of where you left off on the text reader so you can easily pickup where you left off if you decide to actually read the book yourself.
I read The Venom Peddler recently and it was refreshingly unique. Maybe give that one a try? linkffn(13330853)
There aren't any pairings, and beware the chapter that's just a giant fucking author's note.
> ff.net preferred, as I use the text-talk function on the app most of the time.
I prefer AO3, because in theory I can skip the author notes entirely. Download the story with Calibre's fanficfare plugin (skipping notes and summaries is a setting), put it on my phone and use an ereader app that can do text to speech. This one came up in a google search but I can't tell you how good it is. Personally, I read on a kindle 99% of the time and get annoyed whenever I see a full page of notes, or most of the first page is the exact same disclaimer that I've seen a billion times already. Hence the ao3 preference lol.
If you want specific books at a specific time, audible is the best option I have found. If you listen to a lot, they start offering you three packs of credits that drop the price down to about $11 per book. But even without that, a single credit a month is about $15 which is cheaper than purchasing books at retail or on iTunes. Hoopla, and the various other library systems are good, but as people have pointed out, there often is a long wait, and your library has to purchase the book (I often find the specific book I want isn't owned by my -Philly- library). Libravox is great, and there's never a wait, but you sometimes run into readers that don't necessarily work well for the book, and audio (sound level) issues. If you are able to adapt to an AI voice, I would highly recommend the e-reader Prestigio for Android. The text to speech is truly amazing (I had it read Finnegan's Wake!!) I have a Samsung tablet and an iPhone and I never leave home for trips without my Samsung because the iPhone has nothing available like it. I have absolutely no connection to the app, I'm just pushing it because I love the fact that you can listen to any ebook without leaving the screen on, and that you can adjust the speed etc, like with most audiobooks.
Newbie sa ebooks, siguro mamaya babasahin ko na ang The Franchise Affair - Josephine Tey or The curious incident of the dog in the Nightime - Mark Haddon. Tapos gamit kong app ay eReader Prestigio: Book Reader . Meron pa ba dito yung namimigay ng free e-books? Pahingi naman ng link nun!
Prestigio is what I use. You have to make an account to synchronize the pages across devices, but it isn't a big deal. It's also free and you can pay $3 to get rid of ads, which don't appear during reading. It's pretty customizable, so you should check it out
Not related to Material You, but I thought eReader Prestigio had a nice UI. You could give that a try.
Although I've been personally using Moon Reader for about 5-6 years now. Too used to that to shift somewhere else at this point.
are you talking tablet or computer? For my tablet I use Prestigio. It works well for me. For my computer I use Foliate or the ebook reader that comes with Calibre. I use Linux so I don't know much about Windows or Mac ereaders.
Hope that helps a bit.
Prestigio Ereader is an Android app that lets you adjust voice and speed. It can read pdfs and epub books and the line is highlighted as it reads. Free with ads that aren't very annoying. Or you can purchase.
eReader Prestigio is my daily It is feature rich and has the most beautiful ui among book reader apps
Here is the link if you want to try : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.prestigio.ereader
I don't use those much except for pdf,as much I discovered, FB Reader is good.
But closed source also looks good,eBook Prestigo
Pack the whole novel as an epub using the WebToEpub extensions. Then use eReader Prestigio to read it. Just like every other reader you can adjust the text size, text color, font style, background color etc.
You can even use the text-to-speech built in the to listen to the epub. That is how I did my catching up. You won't even feel the difference between machine narration and human narration after a chapter.
I use e-reader prestigo. It has a function like that. Works both for PDF and epubs. But Everytime it pronounces the name of the characters, I die a little on the inside. You could try it out if you want.
Try eReader Prestigio it supports all formats and audiobooks too. I use it for ebooks in the day and audiobooks in the night. All in one package.
text to speech can help if any of is work is on computers.
http://www.cross-plus-a.com/balabolka.htm this one can be put on a flash drive to use on school computers
Download them from here :
Someone else posted the link, so I just copy pasted it here.
Now, if you're reading on Android, I would suggest Reader Prestogio from Play Store.
eReader Prestigio: Book Reader is the best app so far: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.prestigio.ereader , if you can't get from Play Store, download apk: http://choilieng.com/apk-on-pc/com.prestigio.ereader.apk I even installed it on my Kindle
As no one else is going to call the bot for you Linkme: moon reader

I bought Moon+ and Aldiko but I very much prefer this one by Prestigio
Give it a try. Supports all ebooks and audiobooks.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.prestigio.ereader&hl=en this one is highly rated and can handle bigger documents. But what format are your notes in?
Moon reader is usually recommended here this is another option.
Have you tried this?
