Adding Voice Recognition Feature

Lately I've been doing some work with the new iOS 10 voice recognition feature, adding capability to the app to allow users to speak simple commands such as "next", "skip", "back", "previous", "play", "pause", "download", "start", "stop", etc. My wife loves listening to me repeat these words over and over again in our basement :-P.  Hopefully I'll be releasing version 2.0 of Reader+ for Gmail soon, with these new voice commands, maybe a few days after Halloween. I think this feature could go a long way towards making the app more use-able for people with visual impairments.
