USERCOMMENTS: “I just wanted to express my thanks for your wonderfulapp. I am an academic researcher who has A.D.H.D., and @Voice hasbeen amazingly helpful to me. (…) In my case, ADHD manifests withchallenges in concentration and focus. When I read on the page, Ifrequently find myself having to re-read sentences, paragraphs orentire passages upon realizing that I had "zoned out" whilereading. (…) these problems are resolved when I use @Voice to"read" written work. The TTS format keeps me on track, because evenif I get distracted while listening, the speech continues and I amable to quickly return to the author's overall train of thought.And, thanks to the intuitive interface of @voice aloud (especiallythe highlighting function) it is easy to back-track if necessary.(…)So, @voice has truly improved my life and prospects.

Mostly because of user paranoia - syncing with Google Driverequires user identity through contacts access right for an app.Otherwise its impossible to login to Google Drive.
