Some time ago, I remember bringing the new Journal changes (v2.0) to your attention.
At the time you seemed pleased that you could replace the companion api.
Well some time has past, do you have any plans to parse the journal?
Should you decide to develop this again, any chance you can look at how this ED app adds voice: tts4ed
It does a fantastic job with TTS and from reading the readit, in future the TTS will be free for all, due to caching and sharing.
I haven't had the energy to properly develop EDTB in a long while so journal parsing isn't happening anytime soon I'm afraid.
