Darwin Reader presents numerous options to tailor the application to your specific needs. Change the font and background color, text size, font spacing, voice speed, punctuation speech, and much more.
Paragraphs, Sentences, and Words
As the book is read to you, the text is highlighted in a large, colored font. Quickly skip to the next paragraph, sentence, or even a single word. Once you've selected a word, you can find out all about it from Dictionary.com and Wikipedia.org.
Quick Book Search
Explore the vast BookShare library directly on your phone. Use your voice to search for a particular book, or navigate through the many genres.
Instant Downloads
