Pocket: Captures & Reads Web Pages Aloud, Offline with Text to Speech!

This video shows how to set up and use the incredibly powerful Pocket app (formerly “Read It Later”) to:

  • Capture web pages to read and study offline on your tablet or smart phone, and
  • Use Pocket’s Text to Speech (TTS) feature when you are offline to have the app read the article out loud to you, using your device’s headphones or speakers.

With Pocket you can study web pages full of text while you’re driving, bouncing along in a bus or simply relaxing with your eyes closed in your favorite easy chair. No internet connection needed!
