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

Text reader – text and voice reviews

Best Text reading App I could find! I use voice-to-text and I know where that button and the send buttons are by muscle memory. But, I couldn't/wouldn't read my responses. Now, all I have to do is copy the text into this app and it'll read every text for me and I still don't have to look at my phone. Don't text and drive if you have to look away from the road, even for 1 second! This is also great for those who can't read the words on the screen very well. *Not while driving!

I am able to copy and paste any text to the app and it reads the text to me. I wanted a text reader to read aloud to me so that I can multitask. I can listen to required readings while completing other task. The app is a good tool. The only thing I wish I could do with the app at this time is to use it within any document rather than copying and pasting the text from the document to the app. Very user friendly. There are no pop up ads.

Sometimes, I am unable to read big blocks of text due to my disability and have been trying to find a good text reader. This is the only one (so far) that is not only free, but allows me to put as much text as I need read into its text box. Obviously this app is still being worked on, so there isn't a feature for images yet, but for simple text to speech, it's pretty good. The voice is a tad hard to understand at times, but that's alright if you're just looking for something basic.

Audible reviews

Never a problem with this app. You can set a time for it to run, for instance, 20 minutes. Then you can listen to a book as you fall asleep. If you miss some of it, rewinding is easy. I also set a timer for 40 min. a day, and listen as I clean house. It's fantastic, with no glitches. Audiobooks are the best! I've also used Google books, but it's a tricky website to maneuver through & I hated it.

- Angelina Haber

The audio book are fantastic. However the podcast player is horrible. For whatever reason the player will not follow one podcast. It jumps from one to another. Even when you choose a specific podcast. It does this randomly. When it jumps it can't even play the next podcast in the correct order. I was really looking forward to having my podcasts and audio books on one app. Hopefully they get it figured out. It's just not there yet.

- Garrett Lisle

I'd like better User Interface customization. I'd like to be able to have multiple options for fast forward and rewind. It'd be nice to resize buttons, too. I think the play/pause is too small. I'd also recommend better syncing with the Kindle app. It's silly that I keep getting lost at different places between apps and that the Kindle app's audiobooks are different downloads and lack all of the functionality that Audible has.
