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

This software is so well designed, and it works all the time. I highly recommend this software for people looking for text to speech software. Just hit control C and then click read and it reads whatever you copied. Thanks for such a stable software.

A great tool to use when you have attention deficit disorder, limited range of motion/physical disability, making things easier to be at your fingertips. ReadAlound needs a icon or share icon to connect to the different websites quicker.

This app is just what I was hoping for. I can copy and paste text from documents I'm writing into this app and listen to the flow. I don't use it for anything else, but it would be extremely easy to read web text or PDF text as well using this program. After using it for a few weeks, I bought the paid version, which gets rid of the ads. What I like: the different voices (I like the female, UK English one), fast and easy to put text into the reading pane, ability to pause and start. Really accurate pronunciations. What I'd change: I'd make it so I can have this reading in the background while I have a different window maximized (i.e., while I'm in my word processing program). It would be great if we could also customize pronunciations. The engine incorrectly pronounces certain words (surprisingly few, though), and it would be great to be able to edit that as is possible on other programs.

Easy to use This program is easy to use and works for my needs. I like that they do not collect my data as well! I didn't give it a 5 star just because it sounds very automated and some words are pronounced wrong, but I'm satisfied and will continue using this program

Convienent And Simple This is the type of thing you would hope was already on your computer but at least it was free. While it could be more fancy and allow more options, this text to speech program is more than sufficient for my purposes. Turning text to audio and making those files easily accessable while still being free. Forces a review but I think the agressiveness is what put it near the top of the search options for me to find... I endorse this app regardless.
