記事内の文字の選択機能の読み上げ機能が欲しい

日本のことを英語で学べるので、海外の方へ日本の状況を説明するのにとても役に立っています。
ただ、以下2点欲しい機能です。
1. 記事を選択できるようにして欲しいです。わからない単語がある際に、iPhoneでしたら、洗濯して探索ができるので、その機能を活用したいです。
2.記事の読み上げ機能が欲しいです。単語の発音を同時に学びたら最高です。

以上のことから、星4とさせていただきました。

ただ、総括してさすがNHKです。

Needs some serious improvements!

I am very appreciative that there is a resource for accessing Japanese news in other languages (specifically English). The latest update has made some good improvements. However, there is still room for improvement.
1. The app needs to include a wider range of news stories, not just the “Top Stories” (i.e. sports, entertainment, local news, etc.)
2. Needs to include a search function.
3. Needs to have a “bookmark” function added.
4. Needs to include email sharing of stories. It has sharing to SNS, but not email.
5. The link within the AppStore to “app support” just takes you to the instructions and features of the NHK website news. It has nothing to do with the app itself.

Lack of contents.

Should have more contents and tabs for broader audience. Only 4 tabs which isn’t enough. Back stories should be placed in archive away from main page. Also, someone else mentioned this but the bottom right tab keeps popping up which is quite annoying. English translations? I give it 70%.
