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

speechelo reviews

The AI voice does a pretty good job with creating the voices, however, the capability to further adjust the speech makes it even better and sound more natural

- Dwayne D.

Having a variety of options (voices) to choose from.

- Hossamudin H.

It sounds great. The voices are sounding almost real.

kurzweil 3000 reviews

Overall, Kurzweil 3000’s AT is most definitely an asset to educational institutions and the development of the curriculum on a global scale. By allowing learners to engage in classroom activities and assignments in a modified manner that best suits their needs, a noticeable change in educational communities may prevail, allowing for continued and accelerated learning opportunities for students with disabilities both in and out of the classroom.

- Hayley Taylor-

Overall, Kurzweil 3000 6.0 is one of the most powerful learning tools I've worked with. This article was written and edited using the program. Its features, as well as its compatibility with voice-recognition software, made this possible. For students, the product can be used to flexibly increase control over their learning. In addition to working with information visually and auditorily, students can actively navigate content and use the available study tools to optimize their learning experience. This comprehensive learning tool has something to offer most students with learning disabilities working at the post-secondary level. Its impact on a student's reading speed, comprehension, and attention span is significant.

- Anne M. Fein-Manager of Assistive Technology Services

Kurzweil 3000 Web earns high scores for its ability to make content accessible to a wide range of students. A single subscription gives students access to three applications, each with numerous literacy tools, but all three require Web access for authentication. If access to the Internet is unavailable, access to the program will be unavailable as well.
