Google Text-to-Speech is an official app from Google that lets you make other apps on your Android device talk to you, dictating the text on the screen out loud.
Google’s Voice Synthesizer is one of the features of Android devices which could end up being a great help for some users. Basically, what this feature does is read the text which appears on your screen aloud; providing that the app in question has the appropriate support from Google (for example, Google Books or TalkBack for people with disabilities).
It’s important to keep in mind that Google Text-to-Speech is not compatible with all the apps available for Android – in fact it only works with a few. Among the most important, two are from Google: Google Play Books and Google Translator. The first lets you listen to all the books on your device, and the second lets you listen to the translations.
To activate the voice, you have to follow these steps: access the settings, choose Language and Text Input, and select Google’s text-to-speech engine as your default.

- It's a really useful option, especially if you don't want to strain your eyes, or if you are in a foreign country (it also works with Google Translate). Just tap and forget about reading the screen.
