Human communication is reliant on text, to the point where we should probably not send that email, for multiple reasons. Still, between emails, transcripts, meeting notes, and interesting or relevant articles to our interests or careers, we have a lot of text to wade through in a given day.

Elocance, which has a 4.1 star rating on the App Store, helps by taking all that text and turning it into a podcast you can listen to, while doing something else. And right now a lifetime subscription is just $34.99, 91% off.

You can create your playlist using Elocance's Chrome Extension, sharing articles to the iOS or Android app, or by forwarding an email to their custom email address. It supports PDF, Word, and PowerPoint, as well as content in twelve languages, making it ideal to build custom language learning playlists or to help those with more of an ear than an eye for languages better grasp what's written.

Once you submit the content, Elocance creates a custom audio file using your preferred voice and accent, and puts it on a playlist in the app. Then, just pop in your earbuds, turn up your car audio, or let it roll in your office as you run errands, work out, or multitask. You can share the productivity, as well; you can easily turn your own content into audio files, and share a browser link with anyone who wants to listen. You can even share it on social media, or embed it into buttons on your newsletter, making your content more accessible and broadening your audience.

We've all got a lot of text to catch up on, and a lot to do during the day. Elocance makes it easier to stay on top of your inbox and your reading list with a lifetime subscription for just $34.99, 91% off the MSRP.

Prices subject to change.
