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

Speechactors reviews

Well, I know many will thing what i said in my title and say...really? And i say to them, guys just go and try their free sample and you will know what i am saying is absolutely the case. I have tried my hands at several TTS and the problem are 1) quality 2) rendering speed and 2) artificiality But not with Speechactors. First great name, why: because the speech actually acts in many emotions: you can set calm, angry, excited etc more than 10 types and the voice adjust to it. So it takes away the flatness from most TTS. The interface is simple and rendering super fast. I only wish the developers can add features to add multiple voices in one rendering. Or even better, let us select the portions and use the several emotions. But all in all for this price, its a steal. Go for it guys, you are missing something amazing. Best to the team.

Love the option to have different tones in some of the voices! I don't find this in the other apps, it's really helpful and easy to use. Hope more voices be equipped with the tone options.

I've tried many TTS options, both online and downloads, and Speechactors is one of the best I've found. It's priced right, easy to understand, and the voices are excellent. I like not worrying about the number of characters since I write pretty long pieces for my blog.

Descript reviews

This is a must-have product that will simplify your life. You won't realize how much time it saves until you use it. Fortunately, there is a fantastic free trial to try it out. The shortcuts are really useful and will save you a significant amount of time. There is a lot to learn, but once you do, the software will save your life.

This is could be a game changing piece of software. it combines transcription and audio editing into one. The option to collaborate in the cloud like a google doc opens up many possibilities. But there is one big downside....

- Verified Reviewer- Media Production

Makes me *want* to edit, can't believe I worked without Descript, far and away the best/coolest software I've ever used, I love you so much, can't imagine trying to edit any other way, impossibly futuristic, best productization of machine learning I've ever seen, one of the most earth-shatteringly spectacular pieces of software I've downloaded in years, makes me feel like I'm living in the future, mindbending... I don't know that I'll ever be able to edit audio in any other way again, completely changes your expectations of a whole software category, the most thoughtfully designed app I've seen in several years, I’ve just experienced a new level of sorcery

Pros & cons

Descript

Pros
Overall, I'm thrilled with what Descript has brought to my show
I'm even more excited to post new episodes now because I know each week the listeners are getting a better and better show
Overall I love it and definitely want to learn how to use the other features but I am extremely happy with the use of the features that I do know how to use
Descript helped me go from a complete novice at audio editing to very proficient within just a few weeks' time
I find Descript to be a super useful tool, and highly recommend it to others.

Cons
And they seem to always show up, even when they've been corrected previously, so it's unclear whether the 'machine' is actually 'learning
Because it is cloud based I had nothing on my hard drive to try and salvage
It just stopped working
That there is no way to edit two separate tracks in one audio
I.e
two people speaking with their own audios).
