Some folks will look at "referenced" material from another thread, others will not. With that being said, here's @Jack's full quote in relation to this topic, which I separate
with its own heading.
"Admittedly the Android community, or lack thereof, is such an unmoderated shitshow with a few here and there keeping the piece/starting their own android user list to separate from the nonsense from the elitists (some of which who call themselves Android evangelists). Also, we need to actually participate in market research/voting opportunities when they come. Seems like some of the android user-base is so good at making noise when companies aren't actively listening, but when it comes to the point when companies want new leads/are considering an Android move, no one shows up to vote. Seriously, Backpack Studio did not receive many votes for an Android version, which was disappointing no end. There were a few times where Microsoft released polls asking what we wanted out of Seeing AI. Since Android is such a fragmented platform with many different devices and variations of different cameras, sensors, api's and other specs, there needs to be enough demand for it. Especially when it's a project they're doing for free, yet investing serious amounts of compute power and money into it. Unless we want to start paying for Seeing AI which I"m sure will be a showstopper for many. So the next time Microsoft releases a poll for Seeing AI input, go out and vote, don't just shout on your platform of choice hoping someone's gonna hear you."
Ansering Other Things
When it comes to using "other" app stores and/or side-loading non-play store applications, there's always been mixed emotions from people on that subject, especially from "most" people living in Europe/North America.
For example, I have used Aptoide before, along with F-Droid. In addition, I'm also looking at an app Store right now called Up To Down, where I do love its interface.
I'll talk more about the above from my own adventures among the Android App world, over in This AG room later on.
So... about that Voice Dream Reader Android App vs Voice Allowed Reader
Maybe listening to the interview isn't necessary after sharing the above, since Voice Dream Scanner ain't coming to Android anytime soon? Then again, there's many apps out there on Android which do a quite nice job.
Well, hopefully the above clears up some things...
