Capti Narrator is an app that allows users to browse the web and add content to a playlist to be read aloud. Originally designed for individuals with visual impairments, the app can also be used by anyone who enjoys the convenience of collecting web content to be read aloud at a later time. The Capti Narrator app can be used with middle and high school students who have processing disorders, speech delays, and autism. It can also be helpful to adults with visual impairments, physical impairments and traumatic brain injuries.
Once web content is saved to a playlist on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod, it can be accessed and the text is converted to speech. The user is able to choose from a multitude of high quality English voices and set the rate of speed, which is especially helpful for those with processing disorders and differing cognitive abilities. The app recognizes content spread out on multiple pages and allows hands-free listening anywhere, including offline. Users can listen to main content while skipping ads, menus, and other annoying text. The app also works well with the accessibility feature of VoiceOver.
The user can also create playlists of written material, similar to a playlist of music. This feature saves the user time and is helpful for doing research quickly. The user also has the ability to share content via Facebook, Twitter, text messages or email.
