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

Text to Speech! reviews

Still a MAJOR bug I have been waiting about three(?) months for this app to be fixed, but it still freezes, crashes, and then stops working after about a minute or less of using the app since the new iPhone 15.4.1 update. This app was always absolutely incredible. The voice is quite realistic in my opinion and I love how it can read thousands upon thousands of words in just one paste! But again, I unfortunately have yet to be able to use it due to this issue… I’m really hoping that they’ll eventually make this app compatible with the new update… till then, I can’t really give it more stars (if it worked like how it used to, it would be five stars!).

One happy customer I am so happy and grateful for coming across this app. I’m a tracheotomy patient and I suffer from a vocal cord paralysis. It has been a very difficult 4 years trying to verbally communicate with people. During the pandemic I have really been having a hard time being understood because my mouth is covered. I ran across this app yesterday and instantly started playing around with it after I downloaded it onto my phone. This app has made it easy for me to send messages to my people without them having to read multiple texts from me. I’m going to keep playing around with it to learn more. I used it at a restaurant to place an order as well. Yes, simple things like that has been very difficult, this app gives me hope….thank you.

Good app, but could use some fixes. I have been searching for an app to use for when I go nonverbal, and this one can be pretty useful. It has quite a few voices to choose from and I like that it isn’t limited with what you can say. I have been having an issue though with my saved/favorited phrases. When I search for a phrase, I’m not able to select and play it after searching. I can only play the phrases I have saved if I scroll to find them from the entire list. This kind of defeats the purpose of being able to search for phrases. I’m unsure if this is a glitch or a design flaw. It would also be really helpful to be able to create categories for saved phrases. I know this is not necessarily intended to be an AAC app, but it would be a perfect free alternative for people like me if those features were added.

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.
