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

ReadEra reviews

I was very tired of a previous reader app because it was so full of ads as to make it difficult to read even one book. I installed this app and it searched my phone for all PDF documents and then presented them in a nice list on the screen - very cool. Updating this review after becoming re-inspired to take up reading again. Reinstalled this app (on a new phone). I discovered that the volume up/down button takes me forward or backward a page at a time. No more swiping! Fantastic usability!!

Best e-reader I tried. I've been using it for 3 years without complaints. I wanted to suggest the addition of reading tracker (stats per day, month, year). Right now, I'm tracking this on another app but I think that a lot of people wanting to read more would enjoy such feature. I also want to mention the text selection tool and how frustrating it can be. I understand it is small characters on a small screen, but it feels like the cursors jump around randomly between lines.

I am still new to this app. I don't believe I've exploited her to her greatest potential, and thus I have offered her little opportunity to disappoint. I can say that I have made full use of its dark mode function, which displays not only .doc files as white-on-black, but also inverts the colors of .pdfs, which is quite helpful when accessing text-based pdfs. I am currently reading a William S. Burroughs novel, after which I will read the latest edition of SCAB Magazine.

T2S: Text to Voice/Read Aloud reviews

I had my vocal cords removed due to cancer. It was helpful re: communicating with others.. I liked this app a lot, but someone redesigned and this new version makes the app almost unusable to me. I'm disappointed the new ver offers less control of the main screen. Sometimes I need to show the screen to someone, and sometimes i want it to say what I've written on the screen. Clearing the screen is also now more difficult

Since I've had this app for quite some time I still believe this is the best app for on the go reading. Over the years it has managed to stay reliable, user friendly, and "clean". I can listen to all my textbooks, and take a link of my choosing and roll with it. The voices have gotten better as well. But there is one thing that bothers me, I have multiple devices, and the links are not shared across them. But at the moment it is not a major concern. I still give this app a five overall.

I've used every text to speech app I could find. This has become my go to. I love the dark theme, being able to follow along, and the easy speech pronunciation customization. I just wish there were a progress bar and a way to access a list of past files.
