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

Merriam Webster Dictionary reviews

I downloaded the top few dictionary apps, turned off all wifi/data and launched them all for the first time. This one works offline (even the games; however, the pronunciation audio clips require an online connection), links to synonymous and antonymous words work effortlessly, and the app doesn't require you to register to use it (*ahem oxford*). Overall, I'd say this one is currently miles better than the rest. I will say, the ads popping up every now and then are a bit of a nuisance though.

The app once let you speak into the microphone and converted to text for word meaning. No longer it does this. They actually reduce features. I never would believe a reputable company like Webster would resort to what looks like smoke and mirrors. I took out a subscription thinking that the this feature was in the paid version but it was not only a typical feature reduction.

When I press the speaker icon to hear the word being pronounced nothing happens. I have to tap it several times before it eventually works. Maybe it needs time to "warm up" 05/08/22 Now when I press the button to hear the spoken word I get the last part of the word. The first syllable is not heard. I have to hit it 3-4 times before I hear the full word. Sent an email. Let's see if I hear back. Otherwise, I'll just uninstall and find another dictionary.
