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

Linguatec Voice Reader reviews

A useful tool, but expensive if you need multiple voices or the options to use the output commercially. The single voice option is of most use to those that want to have reports read to them on their daily commute.

With TTV tools, it always comes down to how plausible a voice is, and Voice Reader 15 sounds human most of the time in the majority of the voices. As you commit to a voice and language when you buy, it is important that you try them out on the Linguatec website before committing to a purchase. We found British Serena to be overly nasal, but British Daniel was more rounded and sounded good most of the time. It’s critical to find a voice you don’t feel is distracting, isn’t patently synthetic, and delivers the content at the right speed and in a tone you like. Our favourite aspect of this tool is that it has a few regional accents, like Scottish and Irish, for the English language. Regional accents are an unusual feature in this type of software and should be encouraged. We can wait to hear a Geordie or Liverpudlian. Overall, this is a robust solution for those that want text reading to them or converting to MP3 audio so they can listen to it on a mobile device while travelling. The price is on the steep side for only one voice and language, making it critical that you make a wise choice when you pick your licensed voice.

I am very pleased with this product. I bought it because I have poor vision and wantd screen text read aloud. I had to get a friend to help me activate the software because I couldn't see the screen where the license key had to be entered, but after this speed bump I was able to use the manual on the installation disc to configure the reader. Using the Voice Reader Home 15 Direct part of the software, text is read aloud as soon as I copy it to the clipboard. This convenience is exactly what I hoped for. There is only one voice included with the original purchase, but it is clear, pleasant, and amazingly lifelike. This product deserves a 5 star recommendation.
