“Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.“
Sir Richard Branson
It used to work well once I could get it to read a document. Though it could have used a return to top of document feature as I’m using it to listen to books. But now all of a sudden, it’s not giving me any audio. I’ve tried restarting my phone, new documents, updating the app, nothing works. So I’m going to have to find a different one.Eliza Pi
TTSReader is a lightweight online text reader that may be accessed at ttsreader.com and works straight out of the box. There is no requirement for installation. There are no downloads. No login. Compatible with every web browser and any device, regardless of where you are. Because TTS Reader remembers the text that was being read and its place, you can always pick up playing from exactly where you left off. You also have the option of manually setting the caret location, after which you can hit the "Play" button to begin playback from the newly selected position. In addition to that, it is able to load ebooks, PDF files, and text files. And it is even capable of recording itself (on a Windows machine). You have the ability to select the language, the voice, and the speed at which the text is read. And when you return, it will remember your choices just as you left them. Absolutely no charge. If you would want to help us, use it commercially, and access it without ads, you may upgrade to the premium version. That sums it up nicely. Give it a shot, and then report back to us with your feedback. Do you want to find out more? Keep reading, or just take some time to mess about.See how Speechify compares with Simple Text Reader
I am a student, and anyone who has taken a class at USC will tell you that the amount of reading per class is Insane. Aside from the stacks of books per class, there are just as manny article readings. If it were not for this app reading to me during my commute, or while I am working, I do not think I would be caught up on my reading. And my midterm, which I got a perfect score on, was based 90% on reading and about 10% on lecture. I had the free version and it works good. The ads are on a small strip at the bottom, and don't interfere with the reader at all. Yet I am so grateful for my A+ that I upgraded just now to the paid version to support the people who made it. I have not used the paid version yet, but I already know it's worth every penny. I did take away one star became on articles (usually PDF's) that have one paragraph on the right side of the page, and another on the left, the reader will read from left to right, top to bottom. Although there is a gap between the two it will read the first line of each paragraph as one. As one can imagine, this distorts the flow and makes no sense. Yet, While it's not perfect, it's better that anything else I have ran into.Oscar Arciga
You can read on screen or listen to the app read aloud web pages, news stories, lengthy emails, TXT, PDF, DOC, DOCX, RTF, OpenOffice documents, EPUB, MOBI, PRC, AZW, and FB2 ebooks, and more. It is an HTML reader, a document reader, and an ebook reader all rolled into one, and it allows you to read on the screen or listen to the text if your eyes are bothering you, they are malfunctioning, or you are otherwise occupied.See how Speechify compares with Voice Aloud
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!

This is a really good app that reads words allowed. I’m using the application to read PDF books. It is working very well. It does a good job of reading books that may have two columns on one page with tables, charts and graphs. It does a good job of reading the left column of words first and then the right column of words. It will read the charts and graphs also, so if you don’t want that read, all you have to do is press on the next section you want read. Its a life saver. Also, it works in multi task mode, so you can have PDF reader pulled up, highlighting within your PDF file and making notes while the app is reading to you (e.g. left side of screen has the voice app reading and the right side has the actual PDF book open) One other application I tried would not allow this, which was odd. For only about $8, I say this application is a bargain. I’ve already used the application to read hours of text to me. It is definitely saving me some eye strain. Word pronunciation is pretty decent, but I would follow along as the text reads to you, just Incase the reader pronounces some words awkwardly. Overall, a really good application.
Needs some attention, but good Love the one time purchase, absolutely worth it as a college student. The only problem I have with it is when it adds extra characters to the start of each page. Most of the time, whenever the page is turned, the program will add and read aloud “a” and/or “-“ two to four times before starting on what the page actually says. As far as I can tell, there isn’t a way to edit this out of the page, though you are able to view the extra “a”s and “-“s in the contents menu of your book. If you’re anything like the average reader, this makes it kinda hard to follow the meaning of the sentence across the page turn when there’s a four to five second break with the voice repeating “a a hyphen hyphen a hyphen.” If you don’t mind it though, it’s a great app and much closer to five stars.
Overall decent. Couple of basic quality of life changes. The rate needs to increase in increments of .1 not.5. I don’t know who could ever understand something at a rate of 5. Second the Web reader needs two basic features. Zoom and search text. Zoom for the oddly small font and search text for long documents so that you don’t have to search manually when telling it to play from here. Otherwise I’m quite pleased it loads the body content quite well and plays it just fine.

|Layout and navigation need to be simpler and more descriptive, with lesser icons and more font|
|The Kindle app cannot open a lot of files, so what the @voice app does is convert documents and websites into a format that the Kindle can read aloud|
|Has a mechanical "accent," mispronounces or misreads the occasional word, tends to add extra pauses, and occasionally reads punctuation marks instead of obeying them (e.g, "ehyphenmail")|
