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

PDFsam Basic reviews

The basic free version has all the capabilities that I need! It lets me split and merge PDFs in addition to other things. All I need to do is to drop the PDFs, reorder them, and select merge. It also has an option to normalize the sizes of pages so that the merged file has a consistent page size throughout the document. Splitting PDFs is equally easy! Just select the file and set how you want it to be separated; like each page or after a specific page. And of course you can opt in to pay a fee and use the enhanced version which has more capabilities but for my basic needs, the free version is more than enough.

Overall, I am very happy with this piece of software -- it is reliable, available at little to no cost, and easy enough to train users on and recommend. I wish it were available on a platform like Ninite so that it would be easier to install with other utilities at the same time. I have no hesitation recommending this software.

An excellent tool and very easy to use, it is perhaps one of the most important features, and the updates that are notified to the user allow them to incorporate new features that increase the level of satisfaction.

CutePDF reviews

This software helps us to colaborate and combine more than two PDF's together, and enables us to create and edit them according to our requirements. It provides us with some amazing editing and creating tools for creating annotations and signatures on pdf.

It is very easy to use and allows you to carry out document editing. I love the tools of creating forms and adding comments. I also like the tools of merge PDF files to create new documents. This editor can create PDF files from OCR and also upload documents from FTP. I can also insert RTF files for cross-platform document exchange.

CutePDF is easy to use for any user level. This software not only allows you to view DPF files, but also offers excellent editing tools for making annotations and creating digital signatures. I also believe that it has an excellent scanning tool, which allows the user to create documents from the scanned images. Finally I can highlight a tool that others software do not have and it is the integration of FTP, which allows to upload the files, simply fascinating.

Pros & cons

PDFsam Basic

Super easy to work with
It has most features you are probably looking for in order to edit, compile, merge or whatever else you might have to do with PDF files
It makes a nice easy to review document -- and this is all the more beneficial when working remotely as has been the case for the past year or so
PDFsam is user user-friendly, versatile, reliable, capable of high-quality resolutions, and consistently free of charge
Wonderful, I will continue to use this software for the rest of my life
It is a crucial tool to have."

The only complaint i have would be the cost of the product, I think it should cost a little less
I will switch to Nitro PDF and know exactly what I am getting
And their customer service is awful
Also, each time you use the program, duplicate PDFsam icons appear, which can be confusing
Then I began receiving prompts to upgrade to PDFSam Enhanced
I then started having problems with PDFSam Basic."


Overall we've had a hassle free experience using CutePDF writer and best of all, it is free
Cute PDF consistently provides reliable PDF quality without any symbols appearing
Integrates well with Print dialogue
What I like the most is that it is online so I can use anywhere I have an internet connection
It gives me the freedom to do everything I need to do with my pdf files
I liked the features that allowed me to merge PDF documents together and editing PDF documents
I liked how easy it was to rotate pages and add pages."

Menu layout makes if difficult to find seldom used functions
Online version does not work very well
Says I can edit PDF's - spent a lot of time and cannot find how to edit
Also, you need a PDF converter to use the file
In addition, I hate softwares which suggest to add a toolbar
Some features are missing or are limited and not very user friendly
For example, the Bates stamping feature has a ways to go."
