EasyReader for iOS Features
Audio Books - Just How You Like them!
Playback with Synchronised Highlighting
Follow along as EasyReader reads your book with highlighted text, perfectly synchronised with the book's audio. Use the play button to start and pause reading or for convenience, a two finger tap. EasyReader plays your book using either the human narration included or, if it's a text only book, EasyReader can add speech; skip forward or rewind; pause; or adjust the reading speed to suit you.
Huge Choice of Reading Voices
Your EasyReader app gives you immediate access to all the voices bundled on your phone. Choose your favourite and use that voice to add speech to a text-only book, read your newspaper or announce outloud text you've copied to your clipboard. Looking for something that sounds a bit different? No problem. Buy a voice in-app; there are dozens to choose from in dozens of languages.
If your favourite voice announces a word incorrectly, you can train it do better next time. EasyReader's Pronunciation feature lets you teach EasyReader how to say that word correctly - ideal for lesser known towns, or experts reading books with specialist vocabulary.
Text Fonts, Colours, Sizes and Spacing
Adjust how your book looks so reading is always comfortable. EasyReader’s intitutive touchscreen gestures are perfect for making changes on the fly. Or use EasyReader's text settings option to make specific tweaks:
Need large print? No problem. You can make the book or newspaper text as large as you need it. When your eyes start to tire, pinch to zoom on the touchscreen and increase the text size.
Select one of the pre-made colour themes designed users with varying visual requirements from high contrast for partial sight through to low visual stress, for people with dyslexia. Or create your own colour scheme selecting colours for the text, background, sentence highlight and word highlight.
Stick with your book's font or pick one that suits your sight. EasyReader includes a range of popular and dyslexia friendly fonts. Adjust the letter and line spacing to ensure the text is easy to read.
Skipping through your new book is effortless, thanks to EasyReader's intuitive search and navigation features:
Play, Pause, Next & Previous
Starting or stopping your book couldn't be simpler. Tap the play or pause button or tap anywhere on screen. Next and Previous buttons skip you forward or backward. You can even adjust how far you skip using the navigation mode feature. Use the progress slider to fast forward or rewind with ease.
Headings and Pages
Jump to a specific page or chapter in your book with EasyReaders' simple Book Navigation options.
Add a bookmark
If you want to return to a page in your book, add a bookmark! Write a note or record your spoken thoughts as an audio note. Search or quicky jump back to your bookmarks at anytime.
Looking for a specific word or phrase? Type your term in the handy search bar and EasyReader will open a list of all instances of that phrase. Make your selection and EasyReader will jump you directly to that location in your book.
Add a timer and EasyReader will automatically stop your book's playback after the amount of time you set.
