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.

Snap Reader reviews

I work as a care giver, and the person I work for goes to college. He is visually impared and some work doesn't have audio, so this app came in handy for taking pics of the work and it reading it. The voice sounds good (trust me I've heard worse) and it did great! Thank you so much!!

This app is by far the most accurate image reader I have tried. It doesn't confuse the words as long as you take the shot in proper angle and lighting. There some points to improve of course. For example, sometimes there's a mistake in sectioning and pronunciation (proper stressing). Those are tolerable. Despite its lapses, the app still serves its purpose well. I can now hear while I read, and even copy the paragraph quickly whenever I need to forward it to friends for a discourse. Awesome app!

- April Anne Punongbayan

It works! The only issues I have is that it reads the dash (-) as 'minus' when its connecting words. The dash should say not anything when its used to join words. It also separates the page so it reads parts separately that aren't meant to be separate. Besides that it's great for auditory listeners with school and learning. Just reading in general its helpful for processing what its saying.
