“Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.“
Sir Richard Branson
The app reads with the word highlighted. But the pages don't scroll automatically. So the app continues reading outside the visible area and I can't see where the app is reading. Also I don't manage to get the sentence highlighted in a pdf, only the word, but with a square around the word, not with a highlight of the word. If I transfer the pdf to text only, all headers disappear, and all paragraphs breaks disappearLennie Stappers

I purchased VDR for my iPhone years ago and it became my most used app. It's absolutely amazing. Recently I purchased VDR for Android and I'm struggling with some basic tasks--like how to get VDR to advance to the second article after finishing the first one. For the life of me I can't figure it out. Also, when I back out of an article, it takes me to the beginning of my list of articles rather than to the location of the article I was just reading. And one more thing, I am very disappointed that the NeoSpeech voice I used in iOS doesn't seem to be available in Android--but I can't criticize VDR for that.

I uninstalled the app and reinstalled and was presented with the ability to download and use voices again. Top Tip - NEVER update this app once you get it to work. It may never do so again. Used the app over 8 years on IOS and Android. Very useful. The latest update lost all of my voices with no ability to use text to speech.

Literally life changing. I wish I'd had this while in grad school. I can go through a whole stack of papers in an afternoon rather than it taking a week. It tripled my reading speed at least. Voice to speech also good enough that I can listen while commuting or doing chores. I also just found the regex feature which will make docs with headers so much better. Really, thank you guys for making this.

Looks great, but toppings aren't included

Doesn't bookmark, doesn't keep highights, if you try to minimize or maximize the window it closes the program, and on and on with the problems. It is pure garbage. Use something - anything - else.
- Casey Bair
I purchased the Pro version and immediately noticed a severe bug that made the program very frustrating and difficult to use. I sent a message to Icecream about the issue, and they refuse to acknowledge it. Even after completely removing the software, they won't give you your money back. Icecream can make you a real happy camper.
