“Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.“
Sir Richard Branson
I am a student, and anyone who has taken a class at USC will tell you that the amount of reading per class is Insane. Aside from the stacks of books per class, there are just as manny article readings. If it were not for this app reading to me during my commute, or while I am working, I do not think I would be caught up on my reading. And my midterm, which I got a perfect score on, was based 90% on reading and about 10% on lecture. I had the free version and it works good. The ads are on a small strip at the bottom, and don't interfere with the reader at all. Yet I am so grateful for my A+ that I upgraded just now to the paid version to support the people who made it. I have not used the paid version yet, but I already know it's worth every penny. I did take away one star became on articles (usually PDF's) that have one paragraph on the right side of the page, and another on the left, the reader will read from left to right, top to bottom. Although there is a gap between the two it will read the first line of each paragraph as one. As one can imagine, this distorts the flow and makes no sense. Yet, While it's not perfect, it's better that anything else I have ran into.Oscar Arciga
You can read on screen or listen to the app read aloud web pages, news stories, lengthy emails, TXT, PDF, DOC, DOCX, RTF, OpenOffice documents, EPUB, MOBI, PRC, AZW, and FB2 ebooks, and more. It is an HTML reader, a document reader, and an ebook reader all rolled into one, and it allows you to read on the screen or listen to the text if your eyes are bothering you, they are malfunctioning, or you are otherwise occupied.See how Speechify compares with Voice Aloud
It used be OK before the need to register. Now it is sometimes working, sometimes not, and support (on their website) is unusable. Sometimes, they give useless generic replies to my questions, like “consult the documentation” or even worse – e.g. how an I enable it on only specific pages? – answer: enable it specific pages.

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.
Thank you for making the free version available. Best part – it works in my sidebar, does not have to be in the page text. Editing one sidebar widget is very much easier than 2000 pages! Does not quite sound human – but text to speech has gotten much better the last few years.
Naturally, not everyone loves to use shortcodes. Let the plugin have a setting option to decide if you want the plugin to show on-site post type or you want it on pages or custom pages. Let it have the ability to show t top of post content or bottom of post content whether on the right, left or center
