What happened to audio?

AccelaStudy has always come packaged with professionally-recorded, high-quality audio files. These files are large and take up a lot of space on the device. While these audio files are part of what makes AccelaStudy great, not all users need or want them, and they make app updates large and slow to install. The audio files require a one-time download from the AccelaStudy Cloud. For those who choose to use AccelaStudy without downloaded audio, AccelaStudy will use one of the great built-in voices that come with iOS.

If you would like to download the audio, please tap on the cloud icon at the bottom of the Study Sets screen under the Content tab.

On your device, please go to General - Accessibility - Speech - Voices. You can then download and switch your device to any available voice.
