Turn everything into a podcast

With ReadBit you can turn everything into a podcast. Are you in a hurry? Don’t you have time to sit down and skim through hundreds of pages of information? Import the document to ReadBit with one click and listen on the go with its superb text to speech (TTS) function. Enjoy the freedom to finish your reading while doing other things like driving, running, or doing the dishes.

Designed for the ones in a hurry!

ReadBit is a text to voice reader. That means you can scan and import anything with text on it and turn it into an audio file to listen to wherever you are. You can also use it as a web page reader.

Highlight and Focus

ReadBit highlights every word while reading out loud. You can scan physical documents and books and read along while listening. The highlighting will increase your focus and help you
retain more information than just reading.

Need a spell checker?

You can choose one of the natural voices in ReadBit’s library to listen to the text you wrote to check it for errors. Learning a new language? ReadBit will read the text out loud, pronounce every word and let you spot any misspelled words or grammatical errors instantly.

Be ready to take in more information in less time

ReadBit also summarizes text and digs out the most relevant information like keywords, characters, and places. You’ll be amazed to see how much you can read by accessing only the most relevant content.

Customize the interface
