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

NextUp TextAloud 4 reviews

I've used TextAloud every day since ALS robbed me of speech, and use it with Dasher to communicate. It's been my link to those I love for eight years or more. TextAloud has kept me purposeful. Disability robs purpose from our life, but TextAloud greatly mitigated my loss by providing the capacity of verbal communication. I first got the software for Windows XP or 2000, and for every upgrade, the NextUp techs have been there for me. It's probably the only software I've used steadily and seamlessly through a half dozen operating systems. My hospice nurses and doctors marvel at my ability to dialogue with them. I tell you my world would be diminished without TextAloud. I can't express how grateful I am to its developers.

I am a very satisfied NextUp customer. I started using TextAloud for my college classes as I am not the best student in the world and could use the extra help. Getting PDF files of the books and reading along with the audio made it much easier to remember the material. I also used it for long articles, going over my resume, and for work manuals. It is one thing to try and read an extremely boring regulation, and another to let it play in the background and find the sections that are most important to you (and still know the rest at least a little). I also use TextAloud on a lot of materials I might have not even bothered to read. Like a friend who says 'you should read this' when I really don’t want to or have the time -- but with TextAloud I can listen as I drive in to work or when I am out to lunch. Purchasing TextAloud has been one of my better purchases in life. I know that seems a bit outlandish but I use more often than not. Many thanks from a happy customer!

I've used TextAloud for a number of years to help with my writing. I am, admittedly, a technology novice, but I know what I like, and TextAloud has been invaluable for editing, as it lets me hear missing words my brain supplies when I read -- as well as other things ears detect when eyes are on autopilot. I've often recommended your product and now I can also add kudos to your customer service.

Braina Pro reviews

I would say that Braina is a revolutionary tool and the virtual personal assistant that will change whatever ideas you had about Artificial Intelligence before."

- - Francisco Martínez, Senior Editor at Informer Technologies

On account of its highly skilled performance in recognizing our voice commands and performing the requested actions, we mark the Braina with a full score of five ratings stars. Its whole array of functions makes it stand in a class of its own as an intelligent application"

- - Free Downloads Center Editor

Braina is a lightweight and smart application that can assist you when browsing through local folders, searching for files, quickly finding synonyms or performing calculi. You can also call for its help when navigating the Internet, for identifying information, songs, movies, news articles and many more."

Pros & cons

NextUp TextAloud 4

Pros
Our youngest son (8 years old) attends a school for children who are dyslexic
One of a variety of tools used at the school is TextAloud
The goal here is to have it assist the student when he or she needs a word pronounced or a portion of the text read to them
This software allows the student to work as independently as possible
Our 18 year old son is also dyslexic and is a college freshman
He also uses TextAloud in two ways
To assist him in reading textbooks and mp3 recordings of the textbooks so that he may listen to them at any time
He has an above average I.Q
but would never be able to keep up with all the reading a freshman does without your software
The Disabilities department at the school scans his textbooks and uses OCR software to turn the files into text
We then use TextAloud to do the rest
We expected him to have to struggle to keep up with History and English, but to our surprise he is excelling in those subjects
This would not have been possible without the aid of your software
Thanks Nextup!
I use this program with a reading disability
I convert documents to MP3 and play them on my iPod
This allows me to listen to business documents while I am on the go
I use TextAloud every day to help me read, e-mails, read online books and just checking my own documents to make sure they make sense.

Braina Pro

Pros
Speech recognition is better than Dragon
Also useful as a Cortana alternative."
"Understands my speech without being nit-picky
Is more affordable (and better) than some similar popular software."
"Using this software was a wonderful experience
In addition to being very easy when installing it on."
"You can change the response voice
That is literally the only good thing I can pull from this product."

Cons
Could not get it to work and no customer support
You can dictate long sentences to Braina and the text it copies to the application does not include everything you said."
"It stops recognizing any command input the moment it goes "inactive" once
It goes inactive after receiving no voice commands after 30 seconds."
