It's not work!

Wow! I am surprised how well this works! It is very easy to use and works beautifully!

One of the biggest problems with the web, is that we're constantly bombarded with information. If you're anyone like me, it's impossible to retain information, get through all the articles I want to read, and get overwhelmed very easily. Innately, I'm a multi-tasker, so when I discovered Ausum, I was pretty shocked by the accuracy, natural voiceover, and ease of use (no onboarding/signup.)
