One of the most versatile document editors for the iPhone and iPad, GoodReader, has picked up accessibility features in a new update that makes it more convenient for users with visual or reading disabilities access documents on the go. Included in the update to version 4.8.1 is compatibility with Apple's VoiceOver, which along with GoodReader's own text-to-speech utility, called Speak, allows users to listen to documents in their preferred language.
Users also have the ability to select how fast the text is read aloud. GoodReader mentions that its own text-to-speech service is different from the functionality offered by VoiceOver:
In addition to the accessibility features, GoodReader offers a robust set of tools for editing and managing large documents that include:
- PDF Page Management - add, rearrange, delete, rotate, extract and email individual pages, split and merge files
- PDF Page Slider now shows page previews
- icon view for file browser, with larger previews
- collapsible tool area on the main screen
- true Auto Sync - background and scheduled execution
The app is also universal, meaning that you buy it once, and use across all your iOS devices. GoodReader 4.8.1 is available from the link below.
