As we move into February 2024, getting ready to do the next set of major updates we decided to spend some time to work on a few improvements and fixes that will increase the overall experience.
Slider to control audio speed with TTS
Use our new TTS speed control slider that allows for precise adjustments in 0.05 increments. This feature gives you fine-grained command over the pace of speech, ensuring the narration speed perfectly matches your listening preference.
EPUB Area/Image Highlight Improvement
Now, selecting an image or an area for highlights automatically encompasses the entire image by default, streamlining the process and improving your reading experience. This update enhances usability, allowing you to then refine and reduce the selected area if you wish to focus on a specific part of the image, offering greater flexibility and precision when making area/image highlights.
Scale comic images to full width in scroll mode
Optimizes comic reading in scroll mode by scaling comic images (CBZ/CBR formats) to full width automatically. This improvement is ideal for enjoying a variety of comics, including webtoons, ensuring an immersive reading experience.
Comic metadata improvements
We now offers enhanced support for ComicRack’s ComicInfo.xml metadata, providing automatic extraction and detection of manga, right-to-left reading support, table of contents, series, and alternate series information. This update significantly improves the organization and accessibility of comic book collections.
- Optimize scroll performance in long chapters
- Better error message for unsupported media overlay audio
- Optimized the delete and remove from device flow to prevent accidental deletes
- Disable live text highlights in PDF
