New English Text-To-Speech (TTS) application for the iPad

PR9.NET May 31, 2010 - Next Generation Text-To-Speech: Enhance Your iPad Experience

Tokyo, Japan — 26 May 2010 — act2 Inc., the premier Apple and Macintosh products reseller in Japan, today announced the release of "Read4U" - a next generation information application for iPad.

"The iPad offers an exciting new platform with which to access so many of today's information and education resources," said Mr. Mikiya Kato, CEO of act2. "We decided a high quality text-to-speech (TTS) application to be important and timely because people are nearly overloaded just trying to keep up with their everyday reading. Technology is supposed to help make life more manageable; we believe 'Read4U' does that for iPad owners."

Read4U
Everyday life hands you more text to read than ever before. Your professional life requires that you constantly stay on top of incoming emails, documents, news feeds, and social media. Personal and family interests add even more reading with social networks and RRS feeds on top of the rest! Read4U helps you keep up with your information sources.

Read4U centralizes your favorite tweets, RSS feeds, incoming Gmail (titles) and reads them out loud to you! Sit back, rest and let Read4U do the work. A time saver for the multi-tasker who constantly switches between information sources, Read4U lets you regain some control. Read4U is like your very own personal assistant.

Monitor Twitter, Browse websites, check incoming RSS feeds, and check incoming emails at the same time by working with the embedded browser. No need to switch from screen to screen or app to app!
