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

Thought Industries reviews

Our customers are able to navigate throughout their portal effortlessly, thanks to the ease of customization of the UI. Personally, I enjoy the administration accessibility and implicitness.

- Mark G. Salesforce Administrator

We have grown with TI. They do a good job of trying to meet us where we are.

- Alexandra P. Customer Success Specialist

There is a bit of a learning curve with all the tools available, but between Office Hours and the new customer trainings, it is easy to become an expert.

Articulate 360 reviews

Articulate is a must have in the Instructional Design world! I work on a team with 3 other Instructional Designers and we are able to share our work within Articulate 360 and make real time updates to one another's work in the event of an absence. Articulate has completely changed the way we train virtually. Our associates now prefer to learn virtually with all of the videos and training we have created with Articulate products.

- Cyndi T. Instructional Designer

I started by using Captivate and was not happy with the results. I found that the training I created and articulate looks more professional and was much easier to author.

- Mari M. Instructional Designer

That it is not Mac friendly. We have a team subscription and for Articulate Review, I must publish from the same user account everytime to keep the same review link.

Pros & cons

Thought Industries

We are very happy with the platform and our relationship with the company
That is important for me because doing a deep-dive with one quality idea yields the best return
That being said, when I am in a "quantity mode" for ideas, there are no lack of resources
We have had great training and set-up has been easy to manage
They are great to work with and truly want what is best for us
TI is also continually developing for the better, so look forward to seeing what else is in store."

The site can be confusing to navigate at times
The exported data files can be confusing to manage at first and requires some effort to digest and absorb
The reporting is lacking and it is difficult to customize user reporting
However the biggest "miss" is still the lack of rules
For example, I cannot easily define a rule that says "assign all new hires in the Customer Service Department, the following training courses."

Articulate 360

It's a clean and clear design which is also helpful for the type of training we create, since we are usually pairing down dense content and making it more interesting
Articulate Rise is best for Micro learnings and Storyline is best for customized interactions
Replay is a great tool for recording screen captures
It's easy to jump in and start creating content since much of the layout is similar to Powerpoint
I love that you have a lot of control on how the user interacts with the program
For advance users, creating advanced slides, variables, triggers, etc is just great
I have been e-learning for the past 15 years and with articulate is the gold standard."

Previous to that, upgrading courses from version 2 to version 3 caused the LMS to stop tracking and send warnings
The solution ended up being not to upgrade, but import the content in a new course
There are times that a course file just corrupts and cannot be saved
This is very infrequent - it has happened to me a few times
Over the few years I've used this software and different versions of it, it has issues with crashing and freezing
It appears to be a common problem
The final problem is that support is generally not very helpful, and you need to figure out a lot by yourself
That is based on two experiences
However, both were quite bad."
