February 2017

Version 1.9

What’s New?

  • Four free voices – you can now download up to 4 of our high-quality voices for free, inside the Store in ClaroPDF.  ClaroPDF no longer comes pre-installed with any installed high-quality voices, so the initial app install time should be significantly reduced. Then you can choose to download your preferred voices in a wide range of languages.
  • Improvements to the “Convert as Text PDF” feature.  We’ve made big improvements to this feature so it should be faster and produces accessible PDF files from PDF images of text.
  • Export annotations as text – You can now choose to export your annotations as text; which you can send to any text reading app, such as Notes, or to an email, SMS app.  You can still choose to export as the XFDF format, which is the PDF standard file format for exporting/importing annotations.
  • New Animated Speech Highlighting on sentence mode. So when having text spoken back with synchronised highlight, the sentence highlighting has a subtle animation, improving transitions from one sentence to the next. This is sentence highlight only, and highlighting can be removed if preferred.
  • New background colour chooser – you can now change the page background colour to almost any colour.
  • New speech rate slider – this lets you choose more intricate values as sometimes the older predefined values were not accurate enough.


  • Added larger icons on iPhone.
  • Added some missing translations.
