Description

*** 2016 Starbucks Pick of the Week ***
*** Top 100 Productivity in 97 countries ***
Too busy to read your articles from your favorite websites? Speaky is a very efficient way to solve that problem: you don't have to read yourself anymore; Speaky does it for you.

How it works? Give the link of your article to Speaky and that's it. It will extract the main content, detect the language and read it out loud to you. You can retrieve content from your favorite websites, Pocket or from the cloud.

== YOUR CONTENT, YOUR EXPERIENCE ==
• No internet connection required
• 27 languages with enhanced quality voices support
• Smart text extraction for web articles and text files
• Settings to customize the language, voice rate and more
• 3 color themes including Dark Mode for better comfort in low-light

== POWERFUL AUDIO PLAYER ==
• 3 modes: Speaking, Editing and Speed Reading
• Progress bar, Play/Stop, Forward and Rewind
• Spoken text highlighted with auto scrolling
• Language detection with quick settings

== ALL THE LATEST APPLE TECHNOLOGIES ==
• Apple Watch app to control Speaky from your wrist
• Share Extension to provide links and entries from other apps
• Handoff support to continue your readings between devices
• 3D Touch to get a preview of your entries and reading lists
• Home screen quick actions to access the most useful features
• Multitasking and background audio playback support

"Articles in your Speaky queue play without an internet connection, so you can breeze through a New Yorker treatise as you ride the subway or catch up on world news on your next international flight." - New York Magazine

"Speaky is a handy tool that helps you multitask by listening instead of reading. Whether it’s an entertaining article on the Web or an important PDF for work, you can give your eyes a rest or just get more done with this intuitive voice reader." - AppAdvice

"The Pocket integration really makes it a lot easier to catch up on those articles you put off on reading." - Lifehacker

IMPORTANT NOTES
• Text extraction is mainly focused on web articles. Speaky provides a basic support for text files and simple PDF where text is the main component. EPub files, iBooks and Kindle books are not supported.
• Articles from websites that require a membership to access the full content (Wall Street Journal, New York Times, etc.) and private databases (companies, universities, etc.) are not supported.

AVAILABLE VOICES
Arabic, Chinese (China, Hong Kong SAR [China], Taiwan), Czech, Danish, Dutch (Belgium, Netherlands), English (Australia, Ireland, South Africa, United Kingdom, United States), Spanish (Spain, Mexico), Finnish, French (Canada, France), German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil, Portugal), Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Swedish, Thai, Turkish.
