episode 20139: MacVoices #20139: Winston Chen Discusses Voice Dream, The eBook Reader That Does It All (Part 1)


Winston Chen, the Founder and iOS Developer for Voice Dream talks about their flagship app that provides a variety of ebook-reading features, including text-to-speech in a number of different voices and languages and more. In Part 1, Winston talks about the surprising beginnings of Voice Dream, why it almost didn’t make it to the App Store, and the letter he received that compelled him to develop the app further. The part that computer voices played in the development, how Voice Dream “jacks information directly into the brain” for some users, and why an ebook reader sometimes beats out an audiobook version are discussed.
