    Having sat through countless boring lectures in school, my attention span for listening isn't very high. If yours is, you should try Umano, a news reader which literally reads the news to you. None of that text-to-speech stuff too—real people!

    The app will read the news and articles of interest to you by amazing voice actors. So instead of reading it... you just have to hear it.

    This is a great way to know whats going on in the world without having to actually read the articles. Each article is read to you by a professional announcer and you can customize it to find the articles you are interested in daily.

    Inspirational news-read apps. 讀報app,目的是讓用家可以邊行邊聽article。 #cc用法:一邊聽錄音,一邊看script(此app可讓用家看原篇article)來學英文,加強speaking同listening。 ﹣發現有時無法載入錄音,不肯定是bug定網路不順。
