Finals are rough, especially during the summer. With summer sessions ending next week, save some time during finals and turn your textbook into an audiobook. Listen while you’re at the gym, walking to class, or doing your laundry. There are a bunch of different ways to convert that book into an audiobook. Check out your options below:
- Here’s what Goodreader says: If you have an iPhone and the latest version of iOS, there is a text to speech system built into it. Go to Settings –> General –> Accessibility –> Speech. Turn on Speak Screen.
This method will allow you to use any e-reading app you want, such as Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Barnes and Noble Nook, iBooks and hundreds of others. All you have to do is swipe downwards from the top of the screen to initiate the playbook controls and your e-book will be narrated by Siri.
- If you have an Android, click here for instructions.
- Lifewire recommends turning your text to MP3s through simple conversion programs. Click here for instructions.
