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

Voice Aloud reviews

This is a really good app that reads words allowed. I’m using the application to read PDF books. It is working very well. It does a good job of reading books that may have two columns on one page with tables, charts and graphs. It does a good job of reading the left column of words first and then the right column of words. It will read the charts and graphs also, so if you don’t want that read, all you have to do is press on the next section you want read. Its a life saver. Also, it works in multi task mode, so you can have PDF reader pulled up, highlighting within your PDF file and making notes while the app is reading to you (e.g. left side of screen has the voice app reading and the right side has the actual PDF book open) One other application I tried would not allow this, which was odd. For only about $8, I say this application is a bargain. I’ve already used the application to read hours of text to me. It is definitely saving me some eye strain. Word pronunciation is pretty decent, but I would follow along as the text reads to you, just Incase the reader pronounces some words awkwardly. Overall, a really good application.

Needs some attention, but good Love the one time purchase, absolutely worth it as a college student. The only problem I have with it is when it adds extra characters to the start of each page. Most of the time, whenever the page is turned, the program will add and read aloud “a” and/or “-“ two to four times before starting on what the page actually says. As far as I can tell, there isn’t a way to edit this out of the page, though you are able to view the extra “a”s and “-“s in the contents menu of your book. If you’re anything like the average reader, this makes it kinda hard to follow the meaning of the sentence across the page turn when there’s a four to five second break with the voice repeating “a a hyphen hyphen a hyphen.” If you don’t mind it though, it’s a great app and much closer to five stars.

Overall decent. Couple of basic quality of life changes. The rate needs to increase in increments of .1 not.5. I don’t know who could ever understand something at a rate of 5. Second the Web reader needs two basic features. Zoom and search text. Zoom for the oddly small font and search text for long documents so that you don’t have to search manually when telling it to play from here. Otherwise I’m quite pleased it loads the body content quite well and plays it just fine.

Braina Pro reviews

I would say that Braina is a revolutionary tool and the virtual personal assistant that will change whatever ideas you had about Artificial Intelligence before."

- - Francisco Martínez, Senior Editor at Informer Technologies

On account of its highly skilled performance in recognizing our voice commands and performing the requested actions, we mark the Braina with a full score of five ratings stars. Its whole array of functions makes it stand in a class of its own as an intelligent application"

- - Free Downloads Center Editor

Braina is a lightweight and smart application that can assist you when browsing through local folders, searching for files, quickly finding synonyms or performing calculi. You can also call for its help when navigating the Internet, for identifying information, songs, movies, news articles and many more."

Pros & cons

Voice Aloud

Pros
It does a good job of reading books that may have two columns on one page with tables, charts and graphs
It loads the body content quite well and plays it just fine
Word pronunciation is pretty decent

Cons
Layout and navigation need to be simpler and more descriptive, with lesser icons and more font
The Kindle app cannot open a lot of files, so what the @voice app does is convert documents and websites into a format that the Kindle can read aloud
Has a mechanical "accent," mispronounces or misreads the occasional word, tends to add extra pauses, and occasionally reads punctuation marks instead of obeying them (e.g, "ehyphenmail")

Braina Pro

Pros
Speech recognition is better than Dragon
Also useful as a Cortana alternative."
"Understands my speech without being nit-picky
Is more affordable (and better) than some similar popular software."
"Using this software was a wonderful experience
In addition to being very easy when installing it on."
"You can change the response voice
That is literally the only good thing I can pull from this product."

Cons
Could not get it to work and no customer support
You can dictate long sentences to Braina and the text it copies to the application does not include everything you said."
"It stops recognizing any command input the moment it goes "inactive" once
It goes inactive after receiving no voice commands after 30 seconds."
