Hi @Dbrant, taks for taking care of this task.
I was on the page https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/270557 and I've seen the mention "abandoned" in this change than you are author. Is that means than noboby take care about the issue of a text to speech functionality for the android app ?
The implementation of this functionality should be not so complicate.
The Kiwix app already fixed it and @Kelson could probably share some information for accessing to the code making this feature possible.
Also, I'm wondering if it wouldn't be interesting to coordinate the development of the android or smartphone in general Wikipedia app with the Kiwix one.
Indeed, the two apps are complementary :

  • Kiwix have the text to speech feature but not the possibility to save off line a compilation of selected articles.
  • Wikipedia app can do it but don't have the text to speech implementation.

Probably a collaboration between developers of each app could be make easy to make both of this apps completed in term feature ?
Cheers,
