Hello fellow Apple users!
I have a question that has been bugging me for a while now.
I love audiobooks. I have a very hefty library of purchased audiobooks. However, a while ago, I realized there are many books that are not available in audio. So I began experimenting with iBooks. I fell in love with the app at once. All of a sudden, I could read books that were previously unavailable to me.
So I have been using iBooks for about two and a half years by now. I find reading with Voiceover like I imagine someone reading with their eyes would. I have been always been rather slow with braille, and packing an extra device with me every time I want to read with my iPhone doesn't really appeal to me.
It has taken me some time and effort to get used to reading with Voiceover. Not because of the voices, but because I have been reading books in audio for as long as I can remember and suddenly being without a narrator who gives life to a book and it's characters has been hard for me to get used to.
I wonder, does any of you read books with iBooks? How does it feel emotionally when you read books in iBooks? Are you able to be thrown into a story and get images in your heads of what's going on in the same way as with audiobooks? And lastly, do you prefer the Siri voices or the Voiceover voices?
I would be very grateful for all your answers!
If you are using other apps when reading with TTS, please tell me of your experiences as well. However, I'm especially interested in iBooks users.
Thanks in advance to anyone who is willing to answer my questions!
