- (2021-07-29) Дмитрий Журко: Fine, if you compare it to many similar ones. I only miss the speech rate to x4.
- (2020-07-05) fetB: Not bad, but really annoying to use because adjusting the speed only works when you "restart it", and it doesn't resume where it left or take the only text that is present. So, i have to select the whole text again and see if the speed is good. Rins and repeat. It also doesnt seem to just read the selected text but everything on screen I would like it to start reading text from the cursor point for example.
