There are limitless reasons and use cases for TTS. Children pick up so much from listening (ask any parent) and unlocking the number of (quality) words a child can listen to holds tremendous potential in their development. College students, teachers, professors, parents, professionals, productivity enthusiasts, and those that are challenged with reading can benefit greatly as well.

For children and e-learning
As children play, you could use TTS to read out their favorite book, or a school reading, or use it for more intentional times. With TTS, words are highlighted (think Karaoke) so your child could read and listen at the same time. This makes for greater retention as two senses are stimulated.

The web pages you allow your children to read come alive.

For parents
Parents can live an exhausting life sometimes. Work and personal life clash and there’s just no time. Text-to-speech enables parents to get more done, read those work emails, and even the ones from their child’s school much quicker as they multi task.

Parents can also turn their favorite book into an audiobook and have it read aloud on those long road trips. Great for parents homeschooling their children.

For college students & professionals
Working on your PhD? In law school? Simply scan your reading and have it read aloud up to 5x the speed. Get more productive, retain, and understand more in a shorter amount of time.

For professionals
Graduated law school? Passed the Bar? Writer, doctor, engineer, professor, or any profession that requires plenty of reading, TTS is a great tool to help simplify a productive life.

For the professionals who travel a lot, read any document, email, or book. Listen as fast as you can. Crush it.

The use-cases are limitless. Attorneys can read their case files much quicker. People in healthcare can listen much quicker and on the go. Teachers, editors, you name it. If your job requires you to read, text-to-speech can help.

For the hobbyists
Many people just want to unplug from a screen and listen to a great book. Text-to-speech is a fantastic way to turn any PDF, eBook, or a physical book, into an audiobook. You don’t have to rely on just audiobooks, have any text read aloud. Most subscriptions are relatively cheap on a per month basis.

For dyslexia and other disabilities
Text-to-speech is great for those who face reading challenges such as dyslexia. Speechify, in fact, was founded to solve a very specific problem. Read Cliff’s story about how he, as a dyslexic reads 100 books a year!

People with TBI, ADHD, dry eyes, or any other illness that makes reading difficult can benefit from converting text into speech on the fly.
