Not all of us are voracious readers, but if you are a book worm then you must download this app called “Pocket” that will save your desired articles so that you can read those later at your convenience.
This feature is definitely going to be helpful when you’re commuting by train or waiting in a long queue without the presence of a Wi-Fi connection.
But I am sure many users of this wonderful application are not aware of its robot that will read the entire content for you. This is truly fascinating for lazy readers.
This unique feature is called “Listen TTS” (text to speech) that has been included and functioning perfectly on iOS as well as Android.
The underlying concept of this application operates by scanning the entire content you have saved offline and read it aloud for you; however you may not like such robotic accent accompanied by weird pronunciations.
Personally, this feature started to irritate me but after a while, I guess my brain started to adapt itself as I could slowly comprehend everything I was listening. Sometimes staring at the screen becomes difficult, thanks to this latest feature as I can simply plug in the earphones and retain all the information in any article.
Moreover, it can also track your reading or hearing progress so that you can easily start reading from the last segment where you have left.
Furthermore, you can also adjust the speed at which the robot will read out for you.
Find out how you can also turn on this setting.
A surprising number of people still prefer to read hard backed books over online reading.
