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!

SpeakLine reviews

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.
