Welcome to Soccer Aloud from Callionica!
There are various ways of hearing articles in your timeline. Keep listening and I'll give you a quick overview.
First, you'll notice that one of the articles in your timeline is colored red. We call that the "current" item.
If you can't see the current item, tap once at the top of the timeline and I'll scroll your timeline to show it.
If you can see the current item, tapping the top of the timeline will show you the first item in your timeline.
If you can see the current item and the first item in your timeline, then tapping the top of the screen will show you the last item in the timeline.
If I'm not currently reading the current item then I'll start reading it when you tap on it.
I'll start reading it from the last point I left off (if I haven't read any articles in between) or I'll read from the start.
You can also use the Play button at the bottom of the screen to get me to read the current item. If you use the Play button, I will always read the current item from the start.
You can tap on any item in your timeline. If you tap on an item that is not the current item, I'll make it the current item and read it from the start of the article.
If you want to hear the article before or after the current item, you can use the Previous or Next buttons respectively.
If I am speaking and you want me to stop, you can either tap directly on the current item or you can use the Pause button at the bottom of the screen.
Have fun listening to articles in your timeline.
