Good speech, but impossible to navigate
The reading, although slightly choppy, is better than any other text to speech that I have heard, and pronunciation is excellent, as well as tone/inflection. That part of the app is 5 stars - but the functionality is 1 star. As far as I can tell, you can’t start reading mid-page, you can’t rewind or fast forward, and while you can move forward or backward one page at a time, you can’t jump to a page (at least not precisely), which is a real problem in documents that are hundreds of pages. If you miss a word or sentence, you have to restart the page from the beginning. Bottom line it’s just a bad interface, and you won’t learn that until you pay for it, because the free version is very limited.
Could be much better
This reader could be made much better by making it easier to open web pages in vBookz. Right now, you need to convert the web page to a pdf, then share the pdf to VBookz, and then select it and hit play. It would be great if you could just immediately share a webpage to VBookz and it would start reading... one single step from safari or chrome to open it.
It has been wonderful to get my college reading in while getting other things done around the house!! I am an Auditory learner so this has been very useful tool. Otherwise my roommates would find me asleep in by books with print on my face. Yes the voice is dull but it has been worth it. Certain abbreviations may be misrepresented such at "street" instead of "saint" for "St." but again worth it. It keeps your place even when switching between books, has a cursor to start in a specific spot, adjustable speed, find a word in the document. It cannot read every PDF (super old font), however it reads the ones that have been formatted well.
