Play Wikipedia articles with Text to Speech (TTS) using this music player-like app in virtually any language. Also automatically play all related articles on any topic from sushi making to computer engineering all while driving around town or walking to class. Wiki Lecturer helps the busy individual learn on the go. Want to learn about multiple topics? You can use the new Play Queue feature!
Playing in the background while you're driving, randomizing article play queues, skipping articles, building your own Play Queues, reading in virtually every language your phone supports; it's all supported as well as being a great Wikipedia reader on both phones and tablets! You can even tell Wiki Lecturer to ignore wiki sections (ie 'References') and links that you don't want to listen to.
Any language with Text to Speech (TTS) voice data should work with Wiki Lecturer; for instance selecting German will make Wiki Lecturer search for German wiki articles and also read them to you in German). Once one article is done, the next will automatically play.
NOTE: If you have any issues, before rating, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may address your concerns.
