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

IMB Watson Speech to Text reviews

The product is multidimensional, The inbuilt capabilities make the work easier. The expressiveness feature makes the product more friendly to the user on the consumer side. Also, the customization feature helps to load in uncommon words as inputs. Overall it's a solid product for anyone using text to speech synthesis.

- G2 User in Information Services

The voice quality is very good to produce security, comfort and does not bother or sound robotic for the person who listens to it, I like that their voice and their tones are friendly and smooth. In addition, another thing that I like is the wide range of characters they give to test before obliging to pay for the service.

There were many issues we faced while using this service but the best thing is it was easiest to use than others

Dragon Professional Individual reviews

This software enables me to run my business efficiently and quickly. The dictation is highly accurate. Editing is easy. I have used this software for decades and it has developed into a useful and necessary tool.

Makes reports a breeze. Also, because you are talking out loud, you hear your ideas and they resonate better. You notice your mistakes more readily. You also do not miss out on getting some of your perfect thoughts to paper. You know, those GOLDEN thoughts that you have while you are busy typing and finishing out the last thought that you are still typing. Don't lose the golden thoughts wasting time typing, get them into the document fast!

- Phil M.

I liked using it but after only 1 year I was expected to pay 3 times the price I originally paid for an "upgrade". I could no longer use it because it was incompatible with the new version of Windows.

Its easy to use service with-in IBM cloud
Resources are useful and the tool is easy to use

Good recognition of the voice, compatibility with almost all the most important software
The dictating process is fluid and also helps creativity
Recognition accuracy is excellent

Each purchase is for one voice only and this can be an issue as it can get quite costly this way
It does seem to get a bit sluggish when you use it for long periods of time
The grammar aspect is a little awkward and clumsy
