with an average of
@voice - best text to speech converter. I use it to listen to articles and websites when falling asleep. I have a information addiction problem. Also good for converting long articles to audio formats that you can take with you for walks/drives etc. Pair this with the google tty engine with a voice of your choice (I choose UK Male).
Drives - prettier alternative to diskusage (visualise your data usage)
figure1 - a medical imageboard. Fascinating.
macchanger (root) - spoof mac address. Useful for bypassing free wifi limits and staying anonymous (to a small degree)
routercheck - test vulnerabilities in your router. Found on /r/androidapps
versa - voat.co reddit alternative with freer speech client. Well made.
tracker assistant - rutracker client/search
whirly - whirlpool.net.au forum (prominent Australian form) client
wifi automatic - the most comprehensive wifi manager I have found. I use it to auto disable wifi when it loses sight of my home SSID and re-enable when it recognises my home area mobile tower.

Imo, the best one is @voice Aloud Reader (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar&ah=qr6JJ9D8j4noLqGcuxMYb75jSBE)
Note that those apps don't have their own voice engines. They use third-party voices (like Google voices, Amazon Polly, etc.), meaning that you have to install your preferred language yourself.
Personally, i find the google voices engine to be the best, is free and comes preloaded on Android
The Google app can read web pages if you open them with it. It's in the three dot menu.
Also @Voice Aloud Reader can select from many different voices. The online ones sound better.
I've found text to speech programs help me a lot. If you have the pdf for the rules you can open it in chrome on desktop and use this extension to read it for you. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/read-aloud-a-text-to-spee/hdhinadidafjejdhmfkjgnolgimiaplp?hl=en
I also use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar&hl=en_US&gl=US
For listening on the go. It's helped me a lot for getting through rules and learning games.
Agreed this sort of thing is super useful. I use an app called @voice for android that let's me convert any webpage (almost) into a pure text format that I can then read normally or play through any TTS system on my phone. Everything's stuck into a list as well so if you're trying to binge a webnovel you can just add a whole bunch and listen to them continuously. Pdf and epub formats work as well.

Best Pdf Reader
I use this one:
I'll pretty frequently use this for ebooks when an audio book is unavailable. It's not the greatest in the world but it's not bad for free and there's a fair range of control over the voice. You can get it sounding pretty real.
If you're on pc, there's this handy site, and if you're on mobile there's an app for that.
Word comprehension isn't always on point, but it reads whatever you feed it.
I had this problem when I first started going chronic.
Initially, I used thick tracing paper and literally taped it over the screen. This actually worked quite well for reading with enlarged/enhanced text, a bit like a kindle with the brightness all the way down, although for pics and everything else it's a bit too much (plus inconvenient).
I find black screens/white text are miles easier to read in general. On my phone I have 'redditisfun' android app, which has a perfect black theme. I also have a screen reader for bad days, just load up an article and boom, read aloud by a surprisingly human sounding voice.
My biggest improvement, however, came when I replaced my monitor with a Benq EW2440, thanks to the advice in this thread. They've stopped manufacturing them but I found some through google. Being able to turn the brightness down to a whimper but retain the luminosity to read is heavenly. It will always be something I look for going forward.
Use @Voice Aloud Reader when proof-reading; it lets you physically hear any mistakes you made. I use it all the time when reading.
Game changer indeed. It works well with fiction, or sped up light nonfiction (plus you can write notes while listening).
For poor people,) there's this awesome TTS app using default google speech engine, some of the voices are quite good, I use UK male voice.
Don't overdo it though. (Extreme case, but) I'm currently fighting media addiction and silence feels wrong.
Text to speech software:
I use text to speech software often during commute and late at night. Hooked phone up to my Bluetooth radio makes it easy to rewind by sentence, paragraph, article, via radio controls. You can adjust speed and voice to comfort.
It's made a HUGE difference in the time it takes for me to fall asleep. I usually listen to scp.org or the like. It takes a bit of practice to not have your mind wonder midway, basically a cognitive exercise to recognize thought patterns. Controlling tangent thoughts has allowed me to fall asleep quickly for the first time.
I use @voice for android, it's. I ended up buying the upgraded version bc i use it for sleep nightly.
I've done this for a few documents on android using Read Aloud with the Pdf plugin. Works pretty well.
Machine reading is getting really good. There are a ton of people making voices you can get for free, find one you like, stick in on your phone, and anything that has been OCRed you can have read to you. I carry headphones with me wherever I go now and it's fantastic how much reading I get done.
Haha wow 89?? Glad you didn't get individual emails.
Here's a tool that might help https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar
Listening to a computer read it back helps me hear things like repetitious words, awkward phrasings, or run on sentences. I often struggle reading my own stuff because it's my stuff, so vague or ambiguous wording is something I gloss over, since I know what I meant. Having someone else read it to you gives you a fresh take.
> Tell me - with Ivona on the Android, are you able to create audio files from the text?
I tracked down an app you can do this with:
@Voice Aloud Reader
In order for it to automatically do chapter after chapter (without tediously doing each one at a time) you need to buy the $5 premium upgrade.
It turns out it's the same devs who made the TTS plugin I'm using with FBReader.
Thanks for this -- any chance you could try @Voice Aloud Reader and report back if it's usable on the P78? I love the double tap to speak functionality and find the reading UX better than Moon+
@Voice Aloud Reader has the option that you need.
It can save audio of epub or pdf text in format Ogg (compressed) and Wav (uncompressed).
You could try the free version first.
Improve the reliability of text to speech a bit, since occasionally it hard-stops between two comments for no apparent reason.
Allow text to speech to happen when Joey is in the background, i.e. Joey is minimized or the screen is locked. (Other apps can do this seemingly easily, e.g. this one: @Voice)
The app @VoiceAloud Reader can do this. I used it years ago and they haven't really changed the design so it looks very outdated but it's still being updated.
It will add a "Read Aloud" option when you highlight text
Interesting app. Those voices sound really natural and the lifetime prices seem reasonable. I would probably buy the lifetime IF=
Lifetime means no hidden restrictions like words limits, or any future restriction
Ability to save to audio files
Ability to edit speech settings
Ability to adjust the pauses between paragraphs. Currently, those pauses are too long and need to be shortened.
All those suggestions are available in the app I already use, @voice aloud reader (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar). The reason I want to switch is that in, the latter, in order to use natural voices, you have to subscribe to Google/Amazon/Microsoft cloud voices, which charge on a per word basis.
I personally have used this app along with Vocalizer Voices. I can vouch that both worked well for me. RHVoice, an open source app, may be another option.
OP will probably have trouble finding a pay-once option beyond the ones were already listed. The majority of apps that do exist for TTS rely on a premium voice API provided by Google, and it's monetized on a per-use basis. So the developer pays Google to handle speech processing, and in turn they need to pass that ongoing cost on to their own customers.
Check out @Voice Aloud Reader. You can choose from many different voices and tell it how to pronounce something if it gets it wrong.
May I introduce you to the Lord and saviour of Audio only experiencers of stories @Voice, which allows you to convert any webpage, pdf, or EPUB into audio using your preferred Text to Speech engine.
I have been using it for years, and honestly prefer it to quite a few Audiobook performances (mainly Mother of learnings). I highly recommend you check it out.
This may or may not work for you, but I use this app which can scan text from any PDF and read it out loud with a few different AI voices. It really helps when I'm having a bad focus day, especially since I can alter the speed and other options. But if you're not an audio learner it might not be helpful.
The other thing honestly was just finding the right meds for me which in my case ended up being nonstimulant ADHD meds—they just bring my attention and memory functioning up to "normal".
Are u on apple or amdroid. It was this one here.
You just add pdf or other format books and it reads them but the issue is it reads more than you want it too like header footer page numbers and headings, citations if its an academic book etc. If it's a normal book might be ok. This app had the most natural voices out of the ones i tested.
Here are two apps that will assist you with text on your Android device. Both links will take you directly to each app in the play store.
Lookout - Assisted Vision
several advices from my own experience:
Good luck and DM me if you want more advices, I will be joyed to help.
Best Text-to-Speech App Ever.
Free version was great, but I went ahead and bought it after a couple months.
Worth every penny.
On Windows, I have no idea. You can use @voice aloud reader (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar&hl=en&gl=US) in an emulator. It has an option to import Google wavenet api keys
Let me introduce you to my lord and Saviour, @Voice it lets you share Webpages directly into the app for Text to Speech reading, even letting you batch Share an entire contents page with their paste links function.
Only limits of the free version is you can't batch convert multiple documents. You'll have to do it one by one. It's the best I know and you can edit your speech settings
Voice Aloud Reader
I use this app,. Swipe right on any comment, click on the three dots and than share the comment to the app.
You can also share the whole thread and it will read all comments.
On a chrome I use Read Aloud. I haven't tried Speechify yet.
For Android I use @Voice Aloud Reader It has some nice features. There is a chrome plugin that saves pages to gdrive and then you can have the app pull them automatically.
I use it to queue up books off my hard drive as well. I've made a custom "Send To" option. Now I can right-click on a book in my file explore and send it to my gdrive folder. Then my app can just pull it down. No muss no fuss.
On Android, Use this one (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar) with Google built-in free voices. They sound better than IVONA. If you're on Windows, use it in Bluestacks
If you have an Android phone, use this one (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar) with the Android built-in TTS engine. It's free with ads. You'll need the The full version (7usd or so) if you want to batch convert multiple documents to audio. I once used it convert 1000+ pdfs to audio files.
Depends on what you want to read aloud.
Personally, I use this app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar) to read aloud pdf, web articles, reddit comments, etc. It has an option to select which voices to use.
If you need help setting up, I'll gladly help.
I usually read SSC posts with Voice Aloud Reader, maybe would give some ideas if we could find it's scraper's code.
I haven't ever tied doing something similar, just tossing up vaguely lead-like things I have.
i've completed around 20 books in my life, most nonfiction. but it's hard and i have to force myself to pick it up everyday. what helps is an android app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar
it reads books for me, i can change the voice and speed. this helps with distractions, my mind stays on the book, and i can play some easy racing game at the same time for example.
A tts app with tons of options, like ability to edit speech settings (skip words, replace them), batch save pdf/txts to audio files (I once converted 1000+ pdf to Audiobooks in one operation, took me 2 days), can save web articles into lists (playlists) like Pocket, can save reddit posts/comments and filter out unnecessary stuff like date of comment, user names, hyperlink, Twitter links, etc.
I have found that @voice serves as a reasonable workaround and, for whatever reason, I can use other language sets in this app.
I'll provide a couple of screenshots to demonstrate how it works for me in a sec.
@voice aloud reader isn't like the worst but it's not the best either. I use it a lot for pdf's and web pages. You can choose from LOTS of voices, the best being Google cloud voices, but good luck on trying to figure out how to use those. Pocket is good too but that's mainly for web pages.
ich nutze gerne @voice für android. (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar&hl=en) vorteil ist, dass man auch aussprache für einzelne wörter übersteuern und damit korrigieren kann.
Gerade beim Korrekturlesen ist Text-To-Speech mega hilfreich, da das System Schreibfehler nicht wie das Gehirn intransparent selber fixt, sondern genauso falsch vorliest, wie sie geschrieben wurden.
I have an android phone and use Voice Aloud Reader: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar
I was surprised at how listenable some of the voices they have these days actually are... give it whirl
Requested this a long time ago. Dev responded that it would a huge rewrite of the app's code.
Instead I share posts to this app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar). It's a much better solution because you can create lists and add multiple posts to it and play them sequentially.
I make my own audiobooks out of PDFs with a decent sounding text to speech app. I made one of Overshoot last year but I deleted it after I finished listening to it.
Joey doesn't allow to listen when it's in the background or screen is off.
I share posts to this app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar)
It allows to share multiple posts and create a list, edit tts engine to filter out words, etc.
Much better than using Joey, because you can create lists (so you can read aloud multiple posts in sequence) and it's got filters to remove web links, Twitter links, flairs and post time.
I technically don't have to read it to enjoy it. I've gone through entire books in just a couple days with this😋
Hearing the words also helps spot mistakes; give it a try.
Unrelated but want to share anyway. If you want to LISTEN to comments, share them to this app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar)
I just share them to a list and the app reads them aloud sequentially.
If you have an Android phone, use this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar
And use Google offline voices. They're the most natural sounds I've tried, especially when it comes to intonation and transition between words.
I just recently used the app to convert in batch 1000+ pdf.
Use TTS. No narrator effect, adjustable speed, pretty good voices, easy to skip back to relisten previous sentence.
That's one of the reasons I use TTS
Or use this SUPER AWESOME TTS READER, which is FUCKING GREAT!
Sorry, but I must sprwad the word of joy!
Just finished reading Chrysalis (all 17 chapters); it was awesome. Are there more stories in the same universe?
PS: I downloaded the whole story and used @Voice Aloud Reader to get through the whole thing in a day.
If interested in the app, I went to 'EDIT SPEECH' and changed three dots (...) to create a moments pause.
... => □.□.□
It really helps with the story telling. Also you can pick a vioce you like.
@Voice on the Android play store allows you to define regular expressions under (cog) "voice settings" -> "edit speech" -> (plus symbol) "+" -> (type: regular expression). I have 2 settings defined for numbers:
Shamless unpayd advertisment for my #1 favourite android app:
@Voice. It has two share options, just play and add to list. Add to list downloads it "now",for ofline use.
Ads supported, with the paid being a bit much at $10. Still, it works great.
Every week I go back and add the one shots to a list. Up to 50 so far, bit its good as a backup media for road trips.
Text to speech voices in Windows are awful, very robotic (same thing on Apple devices). If you have an Android phone, use the much better Google voices (built-in and free). Then use this app
I'm currently using it to convert 1000+ pdf to audio files.
My solution to this problem. TTS reader on the phone and an app to organize them. Grab a pair of headphones and every few minutes of downtime knocks another one off the list.
iOS: Capti Voice
I found out that I am an auditory learner. I retain information better in an audio form. I use audio books or if I can't find the audio book there is an app that will read any epub or pdf in a mostly non robotic voice and it's free. I listen while I am driving and I read a ton of books now. When I get to my destination I will update a Google doc with any insightful info I picked up from listening on my trip.
Here is a link to the app.
I also use Read Aloud. That's a great app. You should search for Ivona Text to Speech. They probably have some of the best TTS voices. The only downside is that Amazon bought them out so it's no loner supported. But you can still find their apps around
Oops, I thought you were talking about this app called @Voice Aloud Reader
Then try this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar
It offers the options you want, you can use the share menu, but pausing and playing will play from the beginning of the sentence not the word it was reading (another app did the same).. You can still change pitch, speech rate, and volume.
This is pretty disappointing. I thought you were going to offer an unlimited/month Audible-esque reading of top articles. (Know how you can buy a New Yorker article for a dollar or whatever?) As someone who is visually impaired and hasn't been able to read magazines for nearly 2 years now, this was exciting.
But this is just AI... Google Text2Speech is absolutely free, and there are many, many apps in the the Play Store (for free or for $5 or less) that make reading articles EXTREMELY simple. (Like clicking the share button.)
I'm currently using @Voice (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar), paid for the ad-free version because it's a good app. There's also a few apps you can get for $50 or less (lifetime subscription) that come with better voices, cross-platform use, etc..
This is a startup gimmick by some kids who haven't studied the market.
@Voice reads your ebooks aloud, and lets you follow along. It even highlights the sentence it's currently reading.
Edit: Install a nice voice like Ivona Amy
I use this for reading articles online and other things that don't have a native tts option. Use the share button and choose the app.
at the moment I'm running @voice for android, some tts (text to speech) engines require data connections, but this one has been free (small banner ad that I can't see while running) and runs offline- perfect. I have yet to be able to tweak it however, ie change cadence, voice, etc... but the options seem to be there, just not working on my device (could be user error). Eventually I want to have the reads saved as sound files so they're more portable. But this is working for now.
@Voice Aloud Reader - webpages and PDFs to speech. Works well.

Creepypasta - scary stories and scp database

Sayings of the Buddha translated and edited by Rupert Gethin might be something close to what you are wanting.
>NOTE ON THE TEXT AND TRANSLATION
>In presenting a selection from the Pali canon I have made the decision to present complete suttas. Over the last hundred years or so a number of anthologies of Buddhist scriptures including Pali suttas have been published. Quite often editors and translators have resorted to giving short extracts. While there is nothing wrong with this practice as a means of providing in a convenient single volume a comprehensive survey of Buddhist teachings as presented in the suttas themselves, it does obscure the literary quality of the suttas.1 The suttas of the Pali canon have been composed as relatively short literary pieces that are complete works in their own right; characteristically, a particular Buddhist teaching is framed in a particular narrative that draws out and adds depth to the meaning of the ideas presented.
>Any modern translator of Pali texts is thus faced with the problem of how to present in the form of a modern book texts that were originally composed and performed orally. We are used today to reading silently in private, but things were not always so, even in cultures where the book has been predominant. Reading aloud was probably common even until quite recently, at least until the advent of radio and television.2 So in dealing with repetition I have had in mind the possibility of reading aloud, and would suggest that this is necessary to appreciate the particular literary quality of the suttas. As I indicated above, the MSS and editions themselves frequently resort to abbreviation, although they are not always consistent in this respect; modern western editors and translators have tended to be the most radical, such that on occasion they have provoked protest from traditionalists.3 While I too have in places introduced abbreviations not found in the PTS editions of the texts, I have avoided the kinds of device that have sometimes been used by translators (ellipsis that interrupts the grammar of sentences, the use of phrases such as 'the paragraph above is here repeated in full'); even in silent reading such devices tend to interrupt the flow of reading, and hence understanding and appreciation, as we struggle to work out exactly what is repeated.
I have tried adding back in the repetitions back into sutta before, and the length of an unedited sutta is several times longer than the condensed versions.
The full versions might be more unwieldy than you imagine, but there is something to ounce it is gotten used to.
Some audio recordings resources for suttas are
www.suttacentral.net (tts multiple voices)
If you use an Android phone, the free app @Voice Aloud Reader make is very easy to make your own tts recordings with whatever tts voices are on your phone.
For when you have text but your hands and eyes are busy you might find @Voice aloud a useful tool.
I use @voice aloud reader
Voice aloud reader is the best. You can choose which voice you want among other features.

You definitely sound dyslexic, but you should get tested by a professional. I learned of the disability after a painful political science test, where I expressed to my teacher about studying and failing. He suggested speaking to a DSPS Counselor on campus and they recommended me to a doctor to test my disability. I was able to pass the class with a B after I got the right help, and I would recommend you do the same.
Until they can get you properly set up, I would recommend using any kind of text to speech software or extension to help you read websites or even homework assignments.
Preferred Web Reader for Chrome: TTSReader
For Software that also has OCR, PDF Scanning, and Text to Speech: Kurwzeil 3000. Cost $500 if you're a student, just say you're taking online courses on coursera or something. There's a 30-day trial available so you can try it before you buy.
Android Phone Text to Speech Reader: @Voice Aloud Reader. Be sure to get all of the add-on associated with it, definitely worth it if your phone or tablet can handle it.
Hope that helps!

I love to listen to ebooks being read to me. So, I love This app.
Full of many options.
Very few apps have had as much impact on my life as Anki. Though the following are not in the same league, they are a part of my current workflow and have benefited me immensely.
Yet another pomodoro app: I use this pomodoro timer to listen to classical/ instrumental music while doing my Anki reviews. It keeps me from getting bored and has a heatmap which gives me an idea of how productive I was.
Voice: This app converts text to speech. I use it to go through my textbooks when I am too tired to read. Using this with bluetooth headphones has allowed me study while doing chores.
Time tracking apps: Makes me realise how much time I waste everyday. I use atimelogger
MyEffectiveness: I use this as a planner and to do list.
Pros: Allows users to
Cons: Takes a while to get used to the UI. Contains ads but they can be removed by a monthly subscription of the app.
Habitica: Another to-do app/ planner which gamifies tasks. There is an addon to integrate it with Anki. I really enjoyed using it in the past. It has been a long time since I stopped using it. So, I don't know what it is like now.
Tiddly Roam: I have recently started using this to experiment with Zettelkasten method.
In the Chrome browser I use Read Aloud: A Text to Speech Voice Reader
I also use these Android apps:
Reedy. Intelligent reader

T2S: Text to Voice - Read Aloud
Download @Voice Aloud Reader (TTS Reader) for a pretty good text to speech reader. I use this for reading books on the go.
Use this app; it's the best Text-To-Speech app I've ever used.
Use this app
FYI, you might wanna give @Voice and Easy Copy on the Play Store a shot. I simply copied the text from the original post, Easy Copy's pop-up menu automatically appeared in DeX mode, and I selected @Voice from the list, and my Note 8 read the entire thing to me, letting me pause/resume as required as I typed my response.
That combination of tools has made keeping up with news, reading books/manuals/lengthy posts, so much easier.
I use a chrome extension called Web2Epub when I want to download all the chapters of a story off of RRL. For Kindle you'd probably still need Calibre to convert it to Mobi.
I don't use Kindle so I am not sure if it supports Epubs. I don't believe it does.
I use a TTS app called \@Voice Aloud Reader It has features to automatically sync from Gdrive that I use to quickly add books to all my devices. There is even another chrome extension for it called \@Voice Add To List that I use to add individual pages after I'm caught up and new chapters come out.
You can use this app to help with your dyslexia; it works great for me.
Oh, "@Voice Aloud Reader" ist es: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar&hl=de
This one is by far the best (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar)
You can edit your speech settings here (https://iili.io/JwgApp.jpg), import/export them.
It does work with pdf but for epub, idk, you could try.
It also saves webpages articles (like Pocket), saves reddit comments, etc.
Use this (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar) and select text, then read aloud https://iili.io/JleXne.jpg
Here is a text-to-speech App for your Android smartphone. I use it for newspaper articles etc. mostly.
I use @Voice Aloud Reader and that's how it pronounces it.
Audiolibros no, pero descargas un libro y después lo abres con una aplicación de la Play Store y la aplicación Lee en voz alta el libro.
Está es la app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar
En esta página puedes bajar libros http://www.epubgratis.org
Y en esta otra app hay muchísimas películas gratis para niños https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mx.ypelis.gratis
Try this (Mobile only):
Use this app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar)
Then select text in Chrome and you'll see the option to read aloud
Yeah actually I've been using them to listen to articles for my assignments XD the app is called @Voice
@VOICE ALOUD READER
I love it!!!!
I use @Voice Aloud Reader. Its mechanical but not too bad as it can use the system tts voices. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar
Voice Aloud Reader does the same
That's a cool tip! I've been considering going this route, do they... ah, yes, they do have an Android app.
I'm sorry but not sorry for doing this yet again!
Sorry about that, friend! It's been a very long time since I've had to use TTS so I didn't realise that the two features might not work together, my mistake.
Personally, I tend to use actual audiobooks along with the RSVP feature; I don't much care for the TTS voice. That gives me an idea, though...
You should absolutely send a feature request to the Moon Reader developer to see if they can implement this. Until then, though, try using another app for the TTS audio; if your phone could play the TTS voice as if it were music, you could probably have that run in the background and still use Moon Reader for the RSVP feature.
Searching the Play Store revealed a few TTS eBook readers. Hyperionics is basically the TTS company, so I gave their free app a try.
After a few minutes of testing, I can confirm that Hyperionics' @Voice Aloud TTS Reader works well for playing TTS audio while in the background. The app also includes a plethora of options to change its behaviour, including the ability to play other audio (e.g., music) alongside the TTS output, although the free version does contain some visual advertising ($9.95 USD to remove). As an alternative option, Libera's ad-free upgrade is less expensive at $3.49 USD, though the interface is rather cluttered. Either TTS app should do the trick.
With both apps installed, everything should work as desired.
Sorry for the confusion. Let me know how everything goes for you! :)
Edit: fixed some formatting, added link to the Moon Reader website.
Maybe this app -- https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar&hl=en
Another vote for @Voice Aloud Reader https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar
@Voice Aloud Reader (TTS Reader) is my goto TTS app. It is a very comprehensive program and has for me the advantage of automatically detecting the language as I frequently switch languages.
For your purpose you would need to enable "Speak text copied to clipboard" under Settings | Speech Settings.
If you generally like having text read aloud to you I can highly recommend installing the Read Aloud: A Text to Speech Voice Reader chrome extension in the Kiwi browser
[It also detects languages automatically]
@Voice Aloud Reader is, as already mentioned, a fantastic app.
If you need a more specific 3 mode reading app I can suggest Reedy. The "speed" in Speed Reading can be slowed down or sped up to your liking.
Supported formats: epub / fb2 / html / txt; including books in zip-archives
As it doesn't read pdf files you would first need to convert it e.g.:
You may also enjoy Google Go’s browser listen to webpages out loud feature in the Google GO app as it shows the current line being read @ the bottom of the page.(although this wouldn't help you with your pdf files)
I use this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar with the Google speech voices (female #3 US). The Google free voice has actually better intonation than Amazon polly.
Yep, I make audiobooks out of all my pdfs with this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar
You can already choose AI voices M/F, accents etc, to read books on Android at least, and while they are not exactly perfect, it's obviously pretty far along that you should be more optimistic than 10 years!
Once you've download language packs (TTS) on the phone, apps like
(Difficult to use)
Can do the reading for you from epubs and other formats.... Maybe you would prefer it to the salesman reading even now?
Here are the apps I use:
Reedy. Intelligent reader [+Speed Reader]
Kiwi Browser with the Read Aloud: A Text to Speech Voice Reader chrome extension.
@Voice Aloud Reader is the most feature rich Android app I've come across so far. HELP
You could ask in their FORUM if they support keybindings.
e.g. here's a post about Using SSML (Speech Synthesis Markup Language) to edit speech in @Voice
Voice aloud reader --> https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar
is my choice.. I share text to it on daily bases
@voice aloud reader It can even save to .ogg file. Frequently updated with fixes and new features.
You can do that with the app I mentioned above... you can share text or urls and it will read it to you.
I'm a happy user of @voice
I haven't tried others..
The @Voice Aloud Reader.
An extremely awesome app that'll read you texts and articles.
Very good also for studying.
I use @voice aloud reader.
Idk if 9 usd is expensive for an Android app. @voice aloud reader (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hyperionics.avar) is an excellent app if you want to read aloud any texts (website, reddit comments, epubs, pdf, docx, etc.).
