(News USA) Smartphones have become ingrained in our lives: as personal assistants, mini computers, navigators, gaming devices and more. But the average device canâ€™t withstand the rigors of everyday life. In fact, the yearly volume of cracked screens and waterlogged phones suggest many peopleâ€™s daily lives arenâ€™t safe enough for smartphones. Most moms know their smartphones wonâ€™t even survive 5 minutes with a toddler. Itâ€™s not just construction crews, contractors and other outdoor, on-the-go jobs that demand a rugged smartphone. Avid hikers, fitness buffs, concert goers, athletes, cooks and the average parent can all attest to the need for some digital gear that helps them live more and fear their technology less. Most phones arenâ€™t equipped for the daily rigors of parenthood, let alone adrenaline-seekers who rock climb, bike, kayak and ski or snowboard regularly.

Permitting New York City public school students to bring their cellphones to schools will inevitably lead to more distractions in classrooms, more conflicts between students and teachers, more cyberbullying and more competition among students to see who has the latest and greatest device. When teachers have to spend more time policing and less time teaching, students will be spending less time learning. New Yorkâ€™s students cannot afford this. They are under more pressure than ever to excel on the new state-mandated Common Core exams, which only about 30 percent are now passing. The last thing they need is another source of distraction and a loss of instructional time.
Busy, busy, busy. If thatâ€™s your middle name, youâ€™re certainly always looking for ways to complete tasks faster, quicker, and better. But what if you donâ€™t have time to sit and read all those documents stacked up in your computer or virtual inbox? Thatâ€™s where text-to-speech apps are your answer. What is text-to-speech? Often confused with speech-to-text (you speak and the text is generated), the text-to-speech turns printed material into spoken words. It lets you hear versus read information. What makes a good text-to-speech app? The quality of the reading voice, the accuracy of what it reads, and the speed at which it reads.

It quickly converts text information into speech, and is touted as having one of the best playback voices out in the market. Speech Magnet Have something in your clipboard? Simply launch Speech Magnet and that clipboard information is spoken and automatically saved. In fact, that text can be organized for easier reference later. Choose the voice speed and pitch and even change to another voice as your text is read. Read to Me SMS text messages, emails, PDF files or web pages are right at your fingertips (â€œear tipsâ€?) with Read to Me. This is a great app to use while being stuck in traffic or dashing about doing errands. Itâ€™s biggest plus is the smoothness at which it reads large documents. Voice Brief Consider this your app to the world â€“ a world that you create. Want to hear the weather? No problem. Have a bunch of RSS feeds you monitor? This is also not a problem. You pick what you want to hear, and Voice Brief brings the information to you. Voice Reader If you need to read both text and PDF files, Voice Reader provides this capability. With 21 languages and 32 voices, no documents â€“ especially PDFs â€“ are off limit. SpeakText Let your fingers do the walking and SpeechText do the talking. With a touch you can select a wide range of content from a single sentence to an entire page. It also provides the option to translate what youâ€™ve selected. Speak it! Grab (or in this case, copy) the text you want to hear from web pages, PDF files, emails, or documents, then paste it into Speak it! and give it a listen. If you want to share what youâ€™ve heard, Speak it! offers the option to create an audio file that you forward off via email. Web Reader HD When you have to venture away from your PC and you have so much reading to catch up on, Web Reader is your helper. It reads complete web pages, portions of pages, or small selected sections of text. If youâ€™re not sure if a text-to-speech app is right for you, keep track of your daily tasks and see how much time you actually spend reading emails, web pages, eBooks, etc. Thatâ€™s when youâ€™ll see the real benefits of a text-to-speech iPhone app.
