    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!

    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。
