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

Nuance Dragon reviews

The software is let down, however, by an outdated aesthetic and poor recording transcription mode, which leaves a lot to be desired. Anyone interested first and foremost in transcribing pre-recorded meetings or interviews will do well to look elsewhere.

- Joel Khalili

Good recognition of the voice, compatibility with almost all the most important software. Buy the professional version to have the chance to use also with EXCEL.

- Anonymous

It is a great time saver when you need to get some letters out and a great way to open word and get to formatting the template. It is a positive review and the price, when bought on sale is worth it.

Azure Text to Speech API reviews

Easy conversion from a voice recorded speech to text. Making speech into notes. When the user is not able to understand the speech he can leverage this API to understand what the user is trying to convey.

- Anil M-Full Stack Developer

Accuracy of conversation is highly advanced and reliable

- Afzal H.- Senior Associate Technology

A very user friendly product with nicely built. Its good category is supporting multi language. It is best multi-language text to speech API which helped in my working space a lot.

Azure Text to Speech API

Pros

It is directly as a service and no expertise in AI or ML is needed by the development team
Security of data since Azure promises that it does not store the data of the customers that is used by the service.

The pricing is also costly - so for an individual user, not on a company plan, this is not affordable
Different accents mistakes
More support for regional languages
