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

Balabolka reviews

At least for English Viewers, This is a very good app to get your text converted to audio and can be used in any of the e Learning application.

An excitingly fabulous program.An eleven out of ten score Balabolka from me. I am a self taught advanced computer dummy and Balabolka is just a fabulous program and so easy to use with all its features. I have searched and tried many other programs, most of which offer a free download until you go to use it and then you find you are tricked into buying add ins to make it work. Well done Balabolka.

- Chris Hough

It is the only tts application that is, as far as I know, both free and offers a function to set pauses in between sentences and paragraphs. Great tool.

Simple Text Reader reviews

I wish i could have kept it as it is I cant understand the accent of the default reader, but i will try again later as this app evolves . The speed controls is jarring as well. But i love that this is a app that is intuitive and not subscription based

have a lot of homework that I need to read for, but I’m always getting distracted by my phone so having the app on my phone and my homework on my I pad and I’m without distractions. It really helps me do my work. I can just look up what I need to read, copy it, then past it into the app and I’ve got my work don’t like that. The is the best app and I’m glad I got it. I gotta say, I was skeptical at first but it really helped

This app truly does embetter my life. It makes studying easy & fun- especially on the go. The fact that you can control the voice speed makes it even better. Sometimes I might read along, or just have it going in the background (to try to absorb and retain as much knowledge as possible). A big 5*'s from me!

This is an app that is intuitive and not subscription based.

Cons
If I want to pause
It will stop playing the instant I leave the app
If you press play it plays on repeat with no sign of stopping
When you leave the app to copy some text which you whished to paste into the app, you can't paste it without being moved back to the beginning and are forced to scroll all the way down.
