- Amazing new voice: Sharon. This US English voice from Acapela is jaw-dropping in its realism. It's a massive download at almost 400 MB, so please make sure you have enough space on your device before purchasing.
- A US English Voice Pack is now available as a separate app. It comes with Sharon and James. After installing and downloading the voice files, the voices would become available for both the Reader and Writer. We created it for schools that used Volume Purchase to buy Voice Dream Reader and wish for more voices. It's also for everyone to get 2 great voices at 25% discount.
- Minor bugs fixes and enhancements.
