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

Narrator’s Voice reviews

Without this app, the audiobooks of Regina Tillriguez on Soundcloud would not be possible. The voices enhance the storytelling experience and help sell the historical elements with a professional tone. I love this app. However, it seems they have changed the voices it uses and now the one was using has really weird timing that I can't seem to control. There are a lot of instances where one sentence starts too early after the previous one, or long mid-sentence gaps.

It functions okay. You really have to play with your sentence structure and word choice. Even with that, the thing that gets it two stars is all the ads and pop ups. I finally relented and paid to remove ads, only to get bombarded with enough begging for a rating to remind me of Dennis from It's Always Sunny.

so good so far.. I tried all of TTS apps, and all of them are not natural or expensive... Only downside here is the design and not user friendly app,( windows, incoherent colours, oldish look like..) I guess this need to be completely refresh from scratch. Also ads are VERY pushy in my opinion, I'm sure it would reject half of the people before trying, what a shame! (Be smart dev. ads would give you less money and more a bad reputation...) Edit: was already purchased on premium :)

Voice Aloud reviews

This is a really good app that reads words allowed. I’m using the application to read PDF books. It is working very well. It does a good job of reading books that may have two columns on one page with tables, charts and graphs. It does a good job of reading the left column of words first and then the right column of words. It will read the charts and graphs also, so if you don’t want that read, all you have to do is press on the next section you want read. Its a life saver. Also, it works in multi task mode, so you can have PDF reader pulled up, highlighting within your PDF file and making notes while the app is reading to you (e.g. left side of screen has the voice app reading and the right side has the actual PDF book open) One other application I tried would not allow this, which was odd. For only about $8, I say this application is a bargain. I’ve already used the application to read hours of text to me. It is definitely saving me some eye strain. Word pronunciation is pretty decent, but I would follow along as the text reads to you, just Incase the reader pronounces some words awkwardly. Overall, a really good application.

Needs some attention, but good Love the one time purchase, absolutely worth it as a college student. The only problem I have with it is when it adds extra characters to the start of each page. Most of the time, whenever the page is turned, the program will add and read aloud “a” and/or “-“ two to four times before starting on what the page actually says. As far as I can tell, there isn’t a way to edit this out of the page, though you are able to view the extra “a”s and “-“s in the contents menu of your book. If you’re anything like the average reader, this makes it kinda hard to follow the meaning of the sentence across the page turn when there’s a four to five second break with the voice repeating “a a hyphen hyphen a hyphen.” If you don’t mind it though, it’s a great app and much closer to five stars.

- MoonieMeep

Overall decent. Couple of basic quality of life changes. The rate needs to increase in increments of .1 not.5. I don’t know who could ever understand something at a rate of 5. Second the Web reader needs two basic features. Zoom and search text. Zoom for the oddly small font and search text for long documents so that you don’t have to search manually when telling it to play from here. Otherwise I’m quite pleased it loads the body content quite well and plays it just fine.

Pros & cons

Narrator’s Voice

Pros
Voice functionality and features are really good
Just the fact that you can instantly save the audio clips as actual audio clips is very helpful for video editing
Narrators Voice, easy to use, lot's of voices (male and female), can add in effects if so wish, pronounces words that are typed correctly

Cons
To many ads makes it unusable
But it's not landscape mode-friendly plus bombards you with annoying requests for ratings all the time
Can't pause so if you have a long bit of text you'll have to wait for it to reload and start from the beginning.

Voice Aloud

Pros
It does a good job of reading books that may have two columns on one page with tables, charts and graphs
It loads the body content quite well and plays it just fine
Word pronunciation is pretty decent

Cons
Layout and navigation need to be simpler and more descriptive, with lesser icons and more font
The Kindle app cannot open a lot of files, so what the @voice app does is convert documents and websites into a format that the Kindle can read aloud
Has a mechanical "accent," mispronounces or misreads the occasional word, tends to add extra pauses, and occasionally reads punctuation marks instead of obeying them (e.g, "ehyphenmail")
