Website-to-Speech:  Pdf-to-Speech can read website pages.
Ideal for articles and blogs. Improved to extract just the text related to content.

Download and save your PDF files and plain text file Attachments from the gmail app and other apps. The downloaded file is placed in the Download folder.

Replace Text tool: Replace words or phrases to avoid repetitive, unnecessary phrases. Use it to replace foreign words with more phonetic alternatives. Use it to omit symbols. or to unfurl acronyms. It can also be used to replace names or words with funny substitutes.

Accessibility: Pdf-to-Speech has been tested to work with talk-back for eyes-free use. The use of hardware buttons such as a Bluetooth headset is recommended to pause the reader before browsing the app using talk-back. Another trick is to use different text to speech engines for talk back and Pdf-to-Speech Pro to distinguish one app from the other.

Play over media: Enable this feature to play Pdf-to-speech along a music player to have background music while you listen to a document. Switch the audio stream to adjust the volume of Pdf-to-Speech and the music app separately.

Great App, needs a few fixes The best app I have found for pdf to speech. It is easy to use and work really well, especially when paired with a good voice.I would like it to be more consistent in its 'recent documents', but more importantly, I would like an option for "don't read abbreviations" and "don't read punctuation" since some words become unintelligible if they have a lot of macrons and omacrons as in a sanskrit name. Finally, and probably most easily, It should pause when the headphones are removed! This is a key feature.
