What program to read song lyrics to use?
When choosing a program with which to read the lyrics of the songs while they sound, we must consider what type of application we need. Based on this, we can choose a player that has this function, install a plug-in for our favorite player or choose an application that offers compatibility with Spotify.
If we have no problem using another player GOM Audio It is surely the ideal option since it has everything you need in a single application. If we don’t mind installing a plugin, MiniLyrics, may be the preferred option, given the large number of players with which it is compatible.
