Tech Capabilities: Grabbing PDF’s from Mail and Reading in Voice Dream Reader

Have you ever wondered how to increase independence through the various apps and devices available for the blind? Blind Vet Tech’s Tech Capabilities offers suggestions to achieve these goals.

PDF’s functions as the bane for every aspect of our digital lives. Whether you need to read an instructional manual, apply for a job, review research or proposals, or even apply for benefits, you cannot avoid them. Sometimes you just need to be able to grab a PDF and listen to it. Voice Dream Reader accomplishes this goal flawlessly. Even better yet, you can place a PDF in the Loader folder, and it will magically appear on your iPhone’s bookshelf. Here is how.

From your computer, make sure you have iCloud set up

Enable iCloud syncing from the Voice Dream Reader settings on your iOS device

If you do not use iCloud, just save the PDF to a cloud storage solution, like One Drive, Dropbox, or Google Drive, and and use the Add function in Voice Dream Reader

From your computer, save the Pdf into the iCloud, Reader, Loader folder

Open up Voice Dream Reader while connected to the internet and wait a moment for the PDF to download automatically

Open the PDF and enjoy listening to the PDF through your favorite TTS voice and using your headset’s controls to jump in the PDF

FYI, in iOS 11 you can fill out fillable PDF’s you download and open up in Preview, but not Voice Dream Reader

    • Hope you enjoyed learning how transferring PDF’s from your computer to Voice Dream Reader allows easy reading on the go through Blind Vet Tech’s Tech Capabilities.
