Hi guys, today is an excited day because I have released the new version of Convert Text to Speech app. in this release I have made big changes (I think :D), such as Doc/DocX and PDF supported file (it also work in Mobile). Ok, I will listing the other improvements and updates:

Supported many format files, the big one is PDF and Doc/DocX

  • In Windows 10 build 14393 or later, now you can play speech in Background (due to windows limitation). but for earlier version you can try my workaround, type your speech => save to mp3 file => play with music player (eg. Groove Music).
  • Now you can open Doc/DocX, PDF, Rtf, Dot, ODT, html, and xml file.
  • Added speed rate based on your incrimination (ex. Speed: 1.25x).
  • Added ability to play speech on selected text, you can try this by click chevron-up button on the bottom.
  • Added in-app feedback page, so you can write what-do-you-think inside the app and then it will automatically added to email’s body.
  • Added ability to search in Library page.
  • If you haven’t get update, just wait the update because it needs to pass some state before it fly to Windows store
