Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

GhostReader reviews

I REALLY like it I’ve enjoyed and recommended this software even before the first GhostReader. GhostReader Plus also has an excellent user interface. The word-processor-like layout is easy to use. When I want sophisticated control over a certain voice, the interface and other features allows me to get professional results (with some practice). If you are having trouble with certain OS X versions (my computer is older), DO NOT use the Apple voice ALEX. Even after a clean install, Alex seems to cause lots of trouble with any text-to-speech software (Apple inc - r u reading this?). The voices you get from ConvenienceWare website (part of your GhostReader ensemble), are excellent. Some of Apple’s voices have improved but ALL of the Infovox iVox VOICES (part of AssistiveWare) are amazing and very realistic. Improvements? I’d like to see a choice/checkbox to read only two letter US-States and not the old three letter method - thus “ill.” is NOT Illinois. Perhaps TAGS does this but words that can be pronounced in different ways such as “Live” could highlight themselves and a pull-down correction could be chosen, then applied to selection or whole document.

Solid Product I've tired others. This is comfy and does the job on my Mac Mini Mojave.

Converts Columns! I used the free version on a script that was formatted in columns. The 'OCR zones' feature is a nice addition. However, it is tedious to have to select the columns on individual pages. It would be nice to define the zones once for the entire document - something to consider for a paid version. Also, I tried several documents. Some work great, while others have issues with the text, such as only converting what it automatically highlights or randomly leaving out letters from words. Not sure why these happen - maybe the fonts are too small or complex. Not a huge deal, since a processor can spot these errors to be corrected. Thanks.
