This program reads out text pages and is totally free and available exclusively for iPhone or iPad (sorry). You may either paste text into the app directly or choose to use the Wikipedia button to search for Wikipedia articles that you’d rather listen to than read. Not every language has a wide range of voices, and it must be said that not all voices sound as pleasant or as natural as I would prefer, but this is just such an easy tool when you’re driving your car, walking or running, waiting for a plane… The app also works offline, once the text is pasted in. It reads aloud in 27 languages, from Arabic to Turkish, including most European languages as well as Chinese, Japanese, Russian, and more. Simple player controls let you jump back and forth, alter the speed, or repeat even when the device is locked. Only the iPhone and iPad Software Store has access to this app. For the time being, it is cost-free and ad-free.

excellent for speed-reading webpages

It’s fun to read Wikipedia pages! I adore using the shuffle feature to discover new music to listen to while running.

iPlayText reviews

Really cool idea! The app makes it easy to search for Wikipedia articles and load them to be read. You can download more voices from the system settings app. It does take some getting used to the voice. Siri sounds great but for some reason Apple hasn’t made the same improvements to the accessibility voiceover.

Nice app. Would be perfect if we can be able to export voice data?

- Mr Outis

I am frequently multi-tasking. This app lets me do that. I copy and paste news articles while I respond to my emails and text messages.
