Hi everyone, 

I am wondering if there will be a text to speech function on the mobile app version of Acrobat Reader for Android mobile phones anytime soon? I have reading disabilities and would appreciate audio functions that can help me get through reading research papers like an audio book.

 

Adobe has the read out loud function only on laptop/desktop versions but not on the mobile. Even with the former, it doesnt quite allow me to select reading just the main content of each page without repeating the same footnotes at the bottom of each page. 

 

I have not really come across any app in the market that could omit the footnotes. Pocketbook gives me some mobility and accessibility now but it is like the current adobe laptop version on mobile. 

 

Thank you.
