Speak the selected text, selected verse, a passage, or just start speaking at the top of the page of any book or Bible. Will optionally scroll the text to match what it is being read.
  • The Journal lets you create notes that aren't associated with any Bible verse.
  • Customizable touch zones let you reconfigure the way you interact with Bibles and other books and move around in the text. For example, swipe up/down to scroll instead of left/right to turn pages.
