@johnjacob Text to speech would be a bit of a challenge technologically. If we do that, then I may wanna limit it to macOS and Windows, because tts quality on Linux is currently not great. Anyway, I created an issue on GitHub just to keep track of this request:
https://github.com/ezra-project/ezra-project/issues/138

Regarding the reading plan suggestion, I also created an issue on GitHub:
https://github.com/ezra-project/ezra-project/issues/139

At this point I can't tell you whether or when these will be implemented, but I'll have a closer look soon to understand the efforts.
