    Very good idea and works well except for one problem. When reading from the page, it does not distinguish between sentences - so when it comes to the end of a sentence, it doesn't pause to signify the end of one sentence and the start of another.

    Hi Robert

    We do try to insert full stops into the text that gets synthesized from the Wikipedia text wherever they would be useful or natural. For example, after every heading and subheading.

    If you have a specific example of an article that is not speaking correctly, please do let me know by e-mailing support@shinydevelopment.com with the details of it and I will take a look at how it is being processed.

    Thanks for the feedback,
    Dave
