4. Reading a Story

Contents
Back Next

To read a story, tap its title text or picture in the main view. The story's first page will be shown, and the sound you recorded will be played.

You can turn forward and backward through the pages of the story, by tapping the blue arrow buttons. You can read the story in portrait or landscape orientation. If you prefer to swipe to turn the pages, you can select this as an option in the app's settings.

To return to the main view showing the list of stories, tap the < or the app icon in the action bar at the top.

You can reveal the story's table of contents, by tapping the page number at the top, as shown below. This requires Android 3.0 or later.

Tap the entry for any page to go to that page, or tap the page number at the top again to close. To prevent the table of contents from being shown, disable editing in the app's Settings.

By default, the spoken words for each page are played when the page appears, and can be played again by tapping the picture (or, if the page has no picture, by tapping the area where the picture would be). You can turn either or both off from the Settings, as described in Chapter 7.

There are also options in the Settings to automate the turning of pages, so that the story advances by itself, or when each picture is tapped: again, refer to Chapter 7.
