WilsonWeb Mobile is is new interface designed by WilsonWeb engineers to offer compatibility with Wilson's resources and mobile devices. Wilson public relations states that

"Conducting WilsonWeb searches from a platform that's with you at all times is just part of the practicality of WilsonWeb Mobile. WilsonWeb Mobile tools such as the ReadSpeaker text-to-speech converter, emailing of results, library co-branding and more multiply the benefits of having WilsonWeb as near as your cell phone.

For users whose libraries subscribe to Wilson full text databases, for example, articles from thousands of publications are now available whenever, wherever—filling those free moments with quality research or pleasure reading. …And with WilsonWeb Mobile's ReadSpeaker text-to-speech converter, they can listen to the articles as well, making the small screen of the typical hand-held device a moot point. Thousands of articles on any research or personal interest—ready for listening while in line at the post office, relaxing in the park, commuting or doing housework—are just a WilsonWeb Mobile search away. Planned features such as "My WilsonWeb" accounts for storing search results will allow users to effectively compile custom "playlists" of articles on any subject (or from favorite magazines or authors), making WilsonWeb Mobile an attractive source of recreational listening as well as time-saving research."
