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

Talk FREE – Text to Voice – Read aloud reviews

When I paste an entire volume of a novel and press play it reads instantly, it even adds another option known as "Speak with talk" when you highlight text on a wiki page or google searches. this is a proper text to speech app. The only problem is, it gets interupted when a notification arrives, now you have to back track where it stopped. Luckily there is a seek which you can use to guess and continue from there.

It sounds pretty natural. I'm happy listening to news articles on this. No intrusive ads. Occasional problem where it tries to open a link hidden somewhere in the text I send it. This can be fixed by pasting as plain text but I would prefer for this to be the default when selecting the app from the share menu. Also I would like a progress bar to see how much is left to play

I've been looking for something like this, oddly enough, I wasn’t having much luck. All I found were apps that were too specific/couldn't read from 3rd party apps, or apps I had to pay for. Then, I came across this little beauty. It's simple & efficient. Good work. Thanks. I've ONE complaint. The read out of highlighted text will randomly stop when played from the context menu but, reads fine if typed (copy/paste, in this case) into the app itself. Aside from that, I've had no problems at all.

Reading Rockets reviews

RocketReader speed reading software has a simple colorful interface that makes it easy for users of any age to sharpen their speed reading skills. It has basic exercises and tests and enough included reading material to keep you engaged as you learn. However, it lacks a few options in regards to exercises, text customization, connectivity and customer support. The software is intuitive with clear labels and colorful icons. It has a good variety of exercises and tests and even a vocabulary trainer. We were happy to see a section dedicated to building vocabulary but were disappointed that instead of standard words, there was only a small amount of obscure phrases and axioms with odd multiple choice options. We did not find the vocabulary option helpful at all.

Reading Rocket can determine the reading age of any individual, and has the features needed to remedy a lack of reading skill. Reading Rocket is the rescue vehicle from illiteracy to literacy.
