This is a practical iOS application of Japanese text-to-speech which obtains RSS feeds of recent Japanese NHK News and speaks articles in Japanese Language. Probably you can use this application for Japanese Learning, and so on.

The Japanese text-to-speech engine that is included in this application has been developed independently by our company. Still day and night, we are improving this text-to-speech engine, aiming for high-quality voice at resource conversation.

This is universal app for both the iPhone and the iPad. When you launch this app on the iPad, it shows both a list view of articles and a content view of article on a SplitView for the iPad, so it will be easier to use.

You can mark favorite and checked on news articles to remember, and you can share the marks in some iOS devices with iCloud.

This application supports background audio mode such as screen lock. You can use remote controller in order to control play, pause and move news articles.
