 vBookz is a beautiful, free ebook reader with speech capabilities that has been out for the iPad for a while. It’s interface is easy to navigate, beautiful, providing public domain ebooks with text to speech capabilities.  The arrival of the new version 2.1 now allows uploading of other files converted to ePub format, which is a boon for loading curriculum content to students onto devices such as iPad or iPods for access using text to speech capabilties.

vBooks text to speech provides a good quality female or a male voice and the ability to adjust the rate of speech.  There are basic choices of  white on black or black on white background contrast and text size. Book marking capabilities are intuitively available. The vBookz website provides an easy tutorial on how to created an ePub file and transfer it to your vBookz app on your iDevice.

Having waited and searched the Internet for an ebook reader with text to speech, I am excited to learn about the upgrade of vBookz  to version 2.1  and the ability to manage ePub files! The wait is over!!
