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The software is let down, however, by an outdated aesthetic and poor recording transcription mode, which leaves a lot to be desired.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.

Voice Dream Reader reviews

“As a user myself and as a mother of a child with dyslexia, I am blown away by the features of Voice Dream. My son is now reading, I survived: The bombing of Pearl Harbor, which his teacher did not let him read for the free reading period of the day because it was too advanced for him.”

- Quartz

“Overall, I am very impressed with what Voice Dream Reader delivers. This is not a cheap TTS plain text file reader, but a polished text-to-speech player that offers a high-quality, beautifully realized reading and listening experience. If you are a consumer of vast text-based content who is always on the go or just want to expand your listening library beyond music and podcasts, Voice Dream Reader is a dream come true.”

- iPhoneLife

“Voice Dream Reader is hailed by many as the best mobile text-to-speech (TTS) app. It has potential uses by those with physical and learning challenges as well as those without. Any student, for example, who struggles with comprehension and retention of written information could benefit.”

- Examiner
