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

Does not read texts in Ukrainian and Russian on the sites with the help of a bubble, as well as the text is pre-copied and pasted in a new window after clicking on the button on the taskbar in the Opera browser. English works stably. The function to download, or view the availability of downloaded, installed languages ​​not found in the browser, on the site and instructions on YouTube.

eSpeak reviews

This is an awesome platform to work with and I found it helps with the speech and voice recognition. It is available with the GPL license. It is compatible with the OS X, windows, Linux and android. It helps with speech synthesizing. It is available for free. It is an open source platform. eSpeak is an OSS speech synthesizer designed for various languages which are accessible as a variety command-line program uses a formant integration method. It is Available as shared library for Linux and SAPI5 version for Windows. I am surprised at the amount of great features it has for a free platform!

It sounds like a robot, not a human: http://espeak.sourceforge.net/samples.html ... It isn't compact (over 1 megabyte)
