A Little Background
SpeedReed is the audiobook player that I was looking for, but could not find. It lets me enjoy more audiobooks and gives me more control over the playback experience. Too often I found audiobooks to be too slow for my preference, but the traditional rate adjustments impact my listening expereince. There are a lot of podcast players that offer silence skipping features, but those didn’t provide the fine tuning I was looking for in an audiobook player. I wanted to cut out more silence in some audiobooks compared to others. I didn’t want a one size fits all solution — I wanted SpeedReed.
