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.

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.

TTS Reader – reads aloud books reviews

Unparalleled TTS file reader on the play store. Very customizable. The replacements function is great for when the engine doesn't recognize a place, name, etc. I find myself troubleshooting slow/non-functional TTS about once a month. It's usually an update that occured while using the TTS, solved by force stopping, clearing data, etc., or I just un- and reinstall the TTS engine (Google for me).

This app is extremely good. It may not include it's own TTS voices however you can choose whatever you want to use, even install a separate app to add more voices instead of default. There are tons of ways to customize the app and the ads are minimal. I use an old version of IVONA and these paired together work incredible.

Pretty good app. Ive been using it for a few months now, and I am unaware of a better free app like this one. The only issues I have are 1) when occasionally opening up new books. For some reason, the app seems to have the habit of opening up a previous book read.... which requires me to attempt reopening the new book several times. This can be quite frustrating at times. And 2) when I pause and play, or add a bookmark/highlight (which are great features) the app glitches and closes down.
