iOS Pick: Voice Dream
Leo Laporte's app cap on iOS Today 292 is Voice Dream. If you miss Umano, the app that would read news articles for you, then Voice Dream may be a good replacement. Since this is a speech synthesis app, it will read any text that you give it. This includes books, articles, and documents. You can even send articles from the web to Voice Dream using the iOS 9 share sheet function.
Voice Dream has 36 built-in voices to choose from, and over 200 premium voices available as in-app purchases. Each voice can be customized with speed, pitch, and volume sliders. There are also add-ons you can get to extend Voice Dream's abilities. For instance, you can get an email add-on so it will read your emails.
