Ratings and Reviews
New version works but a bit buggy
There is one issue with the current version. Sometimes it jumps backwards and repeats some section over and over.
This problem is related to network connection. Once connected, it jumps backward. It seems something is wrong with the sync module...
Another issue is that, loading a book requires network connection, because it defaults to uploading the book to website. This feature should be optional.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, I'm sorry you're having issues with Capti. Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to report the problem and we'll begin looking into it!
Simple and convenient - helps me read on a busy schedule
I’ve been using Capti for a few years now, and have used all methods for adding content. I find that copying the url is usually easiest unless there’s a lot of extraneous text at the top or bottom and then I just copy the text I want to be read and paste into Capti.
I don’t have a lot of time to sit and read articles so it’s nice to load up a playlists for listening while driving, washing dishes, whatever. It’s awesome! I have even loaded up online books from free-book website (like the Chinese light novels that my teen son got me into.) With some books I have to copy multiple urls so that takes a bit of trial and error depending how the book’s pages are set up, but I can load one playlist with all of the pages or chapters in a book pretty quickly and then the book will be read seamlessly from the playlist.
Honestly the only thing better would be an app that just reads the page you’re on (not sure that exists for iOS.) 😁👍
Almost perfect app
I like this app a lot. I tried a few other apps that do text to speech. This one almost has everything that I am looking for.
1. It allows for browser loading and pulling the text into the reading queue. The addition to the queue log is pretty fast. I am amazed how easy and fast it is.
2. It will keep reading through the queue and doesn’t require prompting. This is great for when I am reading a book late at night and falling asleep to the monotonous voice, I don’t sudden get jolted out of my slumber due to the sudden change. tip: If you put your phone on silent, it will vibrate when it moves to the next article. You would have to turn off the vibrate while on silent to make it stop vibrating.
Things that could be improved are:
1. The voice - you can not change the pitch and other attributes to improve on the voice. Also, there are many system voices but you are limited to just the handfuls and you have to buy from a specific list in order to get other voices in the app. I wish I could add the customized voice that I want.
2. You can not select where to start again. You have to go according to the app’s progress or page separation.
Thanks for making this app, developers!!
