App Store Description

Listen to the internet and browse it without looking to the screen while commuting, walking, running, doing the housework or another activity and save an hour each day! Speech Central is the only app that uses headphones or Bluetooth hands-free to read aloud the web site and receive the commands for browsing.

For the first time you can completely keep up with the news while you perform another activity. You'll save your time and eyes for better things while having your battery and data plan last significantly longer. Keeping the screen off grants that you won't get into the internet addiction and waste your time on unwanted things. As a bonus, even if your data connection is unstable you won't notice any interruptions.

Browse any web site that has a page in the form of headlines or RSS feed and while the text to speech voice reads them schedule their articles to be read using only remote audio controls like the next button.

Add a text for reading from any app that can share a web site link (including any web browser) – just press the Share button in it and starting the speech or saving the text to listen to it later is only a tap away.

The app is not limited to reading the online content, you can import various text file formats to be read aloud - supported document types are: .docx, .pptx, .odt, .odp, .html, .txt, supported e-book formats are .epub and .fb2 and emails in .eml format. All those formats will work only if a document has no DRM.

By using the app you'll build your knowledge base in an easy way. Each read text is automatically moved to the Old Articles which supports powerful search and filtering features and keeps it available offline. Annotation tools are there to mark a text as favorite, or bookmark an important paragraph in it.

Latest iOS features including 3D Touch, Spotlight Search, Dynamic Type and Apple Watch are fully supported. The app is tested to work properly on iOS 9 and 10.

English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, Chinese, Russian, Japanese, Swedish, Dutch, Norwegian and Danish language can be auto detected inside the app, but it can be used with any of 27 languages supported for text to speech by iOS.

The free version has a limitation in the number of articles that you can add to it. It is removed by purchasing the Pro add-on.

The app can also help people with dyslexia to easier keep up with the web.
