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

Google Cloud Text-to-Speech reviews

"Cloud Text to Speech API has a really pleasant working experience on a software I've had a user in terms of its features and capabilities. It includes multiples types, and formats of voices and supports SSML which is a must on complex voice projects. The API integrates with the customer service bot on the phone, to the read-aloud option for stories/books on our website."

- CEO - Education Industry

"I used this with a service provider as a trial - surprisingly natural experience with unique tone to help personalise the interaction. It certainly felt somewhat real and lifelike and was consequently much more engaging, comfortable and seamless."

- Engineer - Energy Production

"Google text to speech is best tool which you use at minimal cost and code effort. It helps a lot in creating different voices. It has wide collection of voices."

Great For People With ADHD I recently started using this app and can already see a huge difference in my productivity. It helps me so much with my homework and I’m able to focus a lot easier, if you’re a person that prefers to be read to or can’t focus by yourself this app is for you!
