Introducing Legere Reader, the comprehensive reading app for mobile and tablet devices tailored to fit every reader's needs.

Legere Reader is a versatile reading app designed for mobile and tablet devices. It offers advanced text-to-speech features and customizable screen layouts to accommodate various reading preferences, ranging from entirely auditory to visual, or a mix of both.

Individuals with visual impairments will enjoy having documents read aloud in their chosen voices. At the same time, students and others with dyslexia will find the synchronized text and voice feature beneficial. The app’s adaptable visual and auditory settings make it a valuable tool for anyone looking to personalize their reading experience.

Legere Reader is compatible with a range of formats including PDF, DRM-free EPUB, and DAISY eBooks. It allows users to import files from popular file-sharing services like Dropbox, Box, and OneDrive, or directly from the device. It also integrates seamlessly with the Bookshare service.


  • Voice Reading: Transform documents into an auditory experience with customizable voice and speed settings (50-700 words per minute). The app can continue reading even when your screen is locked and remembers settings for each document.

  • Getting Content: Supports a wide range of file types and sources, including direct text extraction from various file formats, integration with cloud services, and compatibility with the Bookshare and Gutenberg collections.
