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

Simple Text Reader reviews

I wish i could have kept it as it is I cant understand the accent of the default reader, but i will try again later as this app evolves . The speed controls is jarring as well. But i love that this is a app that is intuitive and not subscription based

have a lot of homework that I need to read for, but I’m always getting distracted by my phone so having the app on my phone and my homework on my I pad and I’m without distractions. It really helps me do my work. I can just look up what I need to read, copy it, then past it into the app and I’ve got my work don’t like that. The is the best app and I’m glad I got it. I gotta say, I was skeptical at first but it really helped

This app truly does embetter my life. It makes studying easy & fun- especially on the go. The fact that you can control the voice speed makes it even better. Sometimes I might read along, or just have it going in the background (to try to absorb and retain as much knowledge as possible). A big 5*'s from me!

Speaking Email reviews

Speaking Email has been a tremendous enhancement to my efficiency in getting work done. I can easily listen to lengthy emails while traveling by car or train. I can archive the ones I need to go back to with a tap of my finger or swipe through ones I don't care to listen to. I do not have to ever look at the screen. I have tried several other vendors with no success. This one even works with my company's dated Exchange server. Thank you Speaking Email!

I’m a retired old fart, so I don’t use your software as you do, however, being an older person, my eyesight isn’t as it was years ago, and your Speaking Email makes it so much easier for me to keep in touch with folks. Thank you for your assistance to our older society. It’s sincerely a joy to be able to receive my email now.

I want to thank you for this app because my 93 year old mother is almost blind from macular degeneration. She can now listen to her emails without needing someone to read them to her.
