Nowadays many people prefer to listen to articles instead of reading them. There are some who may have a weak eyesight vision or probably it gets really boring when you have to read all those long essays and stuff. And sometimes when we just read, we don’t know how to pronounce other words right, but when we just listen we can learn how to pronounce precisely. Listening is much more fun and can save time. Thanks to some websites that can convert texts into speeches, we can easily enjoy articles and not get bored or even get our eyes hurt from reading too much.
