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.

Storytel reviews

I can't choose a country of a language that I speak(English) as it's not even one of the options. I was just looking for an app that would work with my watch and big yikes. I can't try out the app to decide if I'm willing to pay for it because once I picked a country, everything switched to the respective language and was unusable. -10/10 And no, I'm not emailing you about it.

I'm really happy with the app, and think that subscription is a good investment. I'd only add a table of contents so listeners could find chapters and concepts easily. Other features could be customize the lapses of time a listener could go back or forward on the book, as of now, you can only do this on 15 seconds jumps. Maybe in the future the possibility to have transcripts in the audio books or the option to do searches by words inside a book. Apart from that, I really recommend it.

Thanks for the quick response. Rephrasing: 1. I see books which show up in my searches but when I open them and I see the message "this title is not available in your region". Would be great if these books do not show up in the search so that the search is not misleading 2. If i am reading part 1 of a book in a series, would be great if part 2 automatically starts after part1. Hopefully this is clear! Keep up the good work.
