“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
Speech Pathologist recommendation I often recommend a free or inexpensive communication app for patients of mine who don’t need or can’t afford a more sophisticated device. I stumbled across this one while looking for a text to speech app. Most are the same; you type a message and hit a button to speak it, and you can save a limited number of messages you use frequently. Unfortunately all the messages are saved in the same place, so you have to look through them and select the one you want, which slows the process down. This app has that capability, but it also gives you 34 customizable buttons for frequently used messages. They’re incredibly easy to program and using the app to communicate is quick and intuitive. I’ve used many of these apps and this one is the best by far, and it’s free!Betsy F , 10/13/2019

I was struggling with the massive shift to online education during a pandemic. I thought a high student engagement was a dream that could never become a reality during remote sessions. But voila! I share a collaborative whiteboard from LiveBoard with my students during the online sessions, and I can see how engaged they are in working on the same task with a group. A true treasure pot for those who view online education as a challenge! I would like to have a video call feature that will allow me to start a video lesson directly from LiveBoard, without other communication tools like Zoom or Google Meet.Hayk T.

Fantastic for Voice Rest I had vocal surgery and had to be on 15 days complete voice rest. My husband works nights, and I have two young boys who cannot read. I needed something that would speak for me. This app is amazing and simple. I connect to my Bluetooth speaker to get it louder when out. Love the custom common phrases. People constantly asked me the same questions. The custom phrases allowed me to answer quickly without having to type every time. My two boys even love the app now. So glad this was available.

Perfect For Thyroid Surgery I’m preparing for a thyroidectomy next week and was told that I might not be able to talk for two weeks, or much less above a whisper. So I was looking for an app to help. Sure I can get a wipe board but who wants to write all day? I found this app and it was super super easy to install and set up! I LOVE the fact that you can pre-set 48 custom phrases! Really great job! Yes it was all free! No stupid ads or asking me to premium upgrade. Whomever designed this- thank you!

God-Send for Vocal Chord Disorders I use this every single day, all day long. I have a vocal chord disorder called Functional Dysphonia. This is how I communicate with everyone. I can even type to speak on the phone by putting my phone near my ipad to hear the words. I don’t know what I would do with this wonderful app! Thanks so much to the developers! I would love to hear more voices that sound more natural— but still thankful for this way to communicate! Developer Response , With the latest version on your iPad or iPhone you can make a phone call or a FaceTime audio call and then open the Talk For Me - Text to Speech app and automatically the spoken text will play through to the other caller. You no longer have to use the two devices. Please try it. I have made numerous calls to family, friends and even companies with no problems. I really appreciate your review!

I can create a group for each course I teach. I use these course groups as virtual offices that I link to in my online courses.

his has the potential to be a great tool for teachers. I hope you keep improving it. Way too many issues. Need a cut and paste feature. Can't lock a session and use video in same session. Video capabilities weak when trying to save. Trouble enrolling too many students. Here's what teachers want: you can pull up a document, then you can write on it and talk while you are teaching. Then we save it and send to students. Thank you for your efforts.
