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

Talkia reviews

The good thing about Talkia is that they have a one-time purchase deak of 67$ if you buy the Toonly software, so in that case you wont be paying monthly anymore.

- James

Talkia is an intuitive interface and works with All Video software programs to customize voice type, pitch and speed. I recommend getting this as it's a one-time fee.

Horrible support. Every time they update Talkia I have a problem entering my account and every time they ask me the credit card numbers expiration date date of purchase etc… Impossible to use this program without starting from beginning every time again and again.

Read&Write reviews

"Read & Write - Gets the job done" What do you like best about read&write? Read & Write is an add on you can use with Chrome. It allows you to have whatever is on your screen read aloud or to have whatever you're dictating typed out for you. Review collected by and hosted on What do you dislike about read&write? Some of the features don't work well with certain operating systems. The updates are inconsistent/slow and some sites do not have full functionality. Several students have utilized this, but only some have found it helpful. Review collected by and hosted on What problems is read&write solving and how is that benefiting you? We use this for students who struggle with reading and writing. When we were doing all school virtually, it came in handy quite a bit. For someone who cannot type or who has suffered an injury, the dictation component is helpful.

"Read & Write Help Software." What do you like best about read&write? I like read&write because it help improve your writing skills. This software is designed to help all even those with difficulties reading and writing.It will help those with learning disabilities as well. This soft wear reads to you and the big thing is that it has spell check as well. Review collected by and hosted on What do you dislike about read&write? I dislike that read & Write it only gives you 30 days free. Read & Write is mainly only great for certain students and staff. I dislike the fact that this is very expensive software.This software also requires help from the support team. It is very rarely that you can self help with this program. Review collected by and hosted on Recommendations to others considering read&write: This good but expensive it will help those struggling. Review collected by and hosted on What problems is read&write solving and how is that benefiting you? It has helped with many documents in the organization. It ha helped many disabled individuals within the organization overcome their fears and boost there confidence about their disability.

The extension allows educators to construct lessons that align with a TPACK design. Read&Write uses technology to create a change in pedagogy (students independently navigating texts instead of with intense teacher support) and allows much more accessible content. The extension modifies lessons according to the SAMR model because students are able to work independently on assignments instead of small groups with intensive teacher support.

Pros & cons


Supports multiple languages
Accent feature adds value and a human touch
Lots of background score options
Customization features
Easy to use
Value for Money
1000 words per voiceover with the base plan
Same AI voice tech as used by Google and Amazon

Commercial license available only with a higher plan
No free trial is offered
Lack of one-time use options
Does not readily translate between languages
No commercial rights with the base plan


The large range of features allows for a range of dyslexia and associated difficulties to be supported
I love that we are able to create vocabulary sheets with very little ease
I like that it runs in the background to constantly help out those who are needing help.

It was very difficult to download and understand exactly what the idea of the program was
Doesn’t have overall tutorial at the beginning of the program
When the Internet is slow the program stops.
