Once updated to Pocket 5.6.7 iOS users are then able to listen to documents they may have bookmarked and saved for later using the new new Pocket Listen text to speech feature.
To listen to article is within your Pocket application simply view an article and tap the three dots in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Pocket explains a little more:
Now, what if you could listen to your articles instead?
Today, we’re excited to bring Listen, our Text-to-Speech feature, to iOS. It’s the hands-free way of returning to everything you’ve saved in Pocket. You can start listening from anywhere in the article, skip paragraphs with ease, and adjust the reading speed for when you want to fly through an article or let it slowly soak in. Plus, it has automatic language detection, making Listen available in all languages.
