Description

Web Reader HD for iPad uses text to speech technology along with web page content recognition to read web pages to you. You can configure web pages to be read as soon as they are loaded, read pages manually after they are loaded, or use Cut, Copy, & Paste to read only sections of text.

Please make sure you are running iPhone OS 7.0 or greater to prevent problems.

See the youtube demonstration of the iPhone version here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bk0d1npGoq4

Web Reader HD acts as you're own personal news, book, and content reader. You can adjust the volume and the speed at which web content is read. Web Reader HD attempts to automatically recognize the language of the web page being read and pick the appropriate voice language for you. You can set a default voice for a particular language so that voice is used for that language.

Use local sync applications like DropBox to download and read text files, HTML pages, MS Word documents, and PDF files.

Note, there is no integration with eBook apps like Kindle. eBooks can be read only if the eBook is available on a Web page such as Project Gutenberg (http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page).

Features:

- Fast - Web Reader starts reading quickly and can read long and large web page content without breaks.

- Reads PDF - Web Reader now reads PDF documents.

- Read Locally Synced Filed - When using apps that sync files locally to your device, like DropBox, you can now open those files in Web Reader and have them read to you. File formats supported are: HTML, Text, RTF, Microsoft Word.

- Remote Control Support - Using the devices headset or BlueTooth device, Web Reader can now be paused from those device remote controls. On BlueTooth devices supporting skip forward and skip back, Web Reader will skip forward and back by paragraphs when using those controls.

- Continues Reading When Backgrounded - With iOS 4 and beyond, if your device supports applications running in the background, Web Reader will continue to read while you use other apps.

- Image Block - Load pages faster by turning on image blocking.

- Multiple Languages - Most languages supported by iOS are supported by Web Reader. Higher quality voices for most languages can be downloaded by going to your iOS settings app and navigating to General -> Accessibility -> Speech -> Voices. Select the language you want a higher quality voice for and tap Enhanced Quality. NOTE: Arabic and Asian language support is coming soon.

- Voice Volume - Control the volume of the generated voices from the text to speech engine as well as control the overall volume with the device volume controls.

- Speaking Speed - Control how fast or slow web pages are read to you.

- Start Here - Tap the section of the article or book you want to start reading. Note: when reading PDF files, this is not currently available. When reading PDFs, you are prompted for a page number to start reading.

- Highlight While Reading - Highlight the paragraphs and auto scroll the web page to show you what's being read.

- Auto-Speak - Configure Web Reader to automatically start reading web page content once a page loads. Going back will not re-read the previous page that was already read.

- Launch from Safari - By cutting and pasting a bookmarklet from Web Reader's info page, you can launch Web Reader and have it read the page you are on in Safari.

- Landscape - Works in landscape mode

- Reads While Locked - Web Reader will continue to speak even when the device is locked.

What did I just pay for?

:
Purchased app to read documents, desiring ability to select reading from particular point on page (which developer claims this app can do). The START HERE feature DOES NOT work with PDF documents (the only document where it would have made a difference) since voiceover already reads most of the other document types with excellent control. Developer or marketer only discloses lack of START HERE feature after app is purchased. :(

The primary features being SOLD in this app are free.
You are charging for features that are already free on iPad without offering the benefit of control.

At this point in time I feel really cheated. I didn't get what I thought i was paying for. :(

Does not work as advertised

:
Great idea, bad execution. In its current form this app should be free. Does not work with pdfs, reads many words incorrectly (even easy words), and you have to stop 'reading' before changes to voice settings take effect.

5/5 stars

Best TTS app

:
The app is truly amazing, so is the support. I sent email and got same day answers. The voice engine easily beat that from kindle and some free TTS software on PC, at least for text and simple HTML. There are kinks in highlighting and skipping text, but overall very close to that read by real person.

I have quite some docs which are kind of dry, this app helped me a great deal to go through them, while I'm doing other chores...
