SEATTLE — Using voice recognition, the app Novel Effect syncs sound effects and theme music while you read aloud. The app even pauses if you stop reading to interact with your audience, and resumes when you do.

It's currently available for popular titles like Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, The Cat in the hat, Harold and the Purple Crayon and more, and Novel Effect is releasing new titles each week.

Novel Effect is available for iOS, Android coming soon.
