Reading toolbar features available with uploaded text that is typed or pasted directly to the app to read and listen to.

Toolbar options will differ if you're reading from an uploaded file (eg. pdf) or if you're reading from uploaded text (text you've typed or pasted in directly to the app).

The toolbar will appear after uploading the file.

Aside from the usual keyboard shortcut for pasting (CTRL + V), you can also simply click on Paste to paste in your saved text.

Save any typed-in text to your Library so you can continue to edit or read from it later. Simply click on Save to add it to your Library.
