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

Apple VoiceOver reviews

VoiceOver is a highly sophisticated screen reader produced by Apple. It comes as a standard feature when you purchase the Mac OS X operating system (version 10.4 onwards) which runs on Apple Mac computers and laptops. Although it is not free in the traditional sense, it is the only screen reader that comes as a integrated feature of any operating system and is highly advanced. A variant of VoiceOver is included on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to make these multi-touch devices accessible to people who are blind or vision impaired. A cut-down version is also used on iPod shuffle and iPod nano. In addition to the standard features you would expect to see in a screen reader are some stand-out features such as gesture support, Braille display support and advanced Internet browsing.

- Media access australia

Apple allows you to export your VoiceOver preferences from your Mac computer or laptop onto a USB memory stick. If you were to plug that USB memory stick into another Mac computer or laptop with Mac OS X, it will recognise your preference and act accordingly. As all Mac computers and laptops have VoiceOver as a standard feature, VoiceOver itself is not able to be run off a USB memory stick.

Anyplay reviews

I am only giving 3 stars because the selection of books is great. But it functions worse every day. It used to annoy me that there s no bookmark option. But now I'm lucky if I can listen for 5 minutes with out it stopping, pausing, or getting stuck. If I am able to hit play because it paused then when I hit play it starts at a different place in the book. If I have to close the app and restart it then it also starts in a different spot. It used to do this maybe once or twice a day. Now it's 50+.

Decent app. I wish they made it easier to search by category and not the small list of suggestions showed. Its annoying to have to search the author or book every time instead of being able to see the full catalog of audiobooks. I also hate that I can't view my full Playlist that I create and only see the same 10 books added. Nor can I remove a book from a playlist once I've listened to it. Its clear this app still needs a lot of fixes. If they can fix these issues this would be solid fave.

The app needs work, but I am so stoked about the catalog, I will put up with a lot. SO MANY audiobooks available. I am really excited about the selection, at least in the genres I have looked for so far. My wishlist: I would like to be able to edit my playlists; better search functions; more stable app.
