Listen to the Mueller Report- There's an App for That

May 23, 2019 in Education (E)

[] Provo, Utah - Ontario Britton, recently between jobs in Ohio, found time on his hands to fix a huge problem: the difficulty of reading the 480 page report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. After launching "The Mueller Report: Easy Reader" in April, an update to the app this week adds another category of multimedia to the Mueller report. Interactive glossary definitions that let you look up acronyms and names as you read now have beautiful, large photos. Few Americans have read the Mueller report despite it being central to the current contentious political processes. This app lets them listen to it during their commute or any other time.

"The Mueller Report: Easy Reader" app removes barriers to understanding this seminal report. A text-to-speech voice can be customized to a desired timbre and speed, letting anyone hear the entire report in about 10 hours. The report has been enhanced so a user can tap unfamiliar acronyms and names on any page to quickly see a multimedia definition in context, a feature unavailable in the released PDF.

While mostly Americans are using this app, it also has interested users in Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Netherlands. 77% of the app's users listen on an iPhone, while the remainder are on an iPad. One user said, "Thanks for putting this together... it's the only relevant app available."

"The Mueller Report: Easy Reader" is strictly non-partisan, making the content as easy as possible to access without adding any commentary or interpretation. The developer's goal is for any interested party, whatever side of the aisle they are on, to be informed on the findings of the Special Council's year long investigation.

Ontario Britton has been making iPhone and iPad apps for as long as Apple has had an App Store. His previous apps have millions of downloads among them and have garnered some of the industry's highest acclaim. An app his team made won the Apple App Store's coveted "Best of 2013" award, and four apps he helped develop were on stage with Tim Cook at WWDC. Developing this Mueller Report app was a departure from Ontario's usual work on games, museum tours, and more recently, mobile Augmented Reality apps.
