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

Voice Dream Reader reviews

“As a user myself and as a mother of a child with dyslexia, I am blown away by the features of Voice Dream. My son is now reading, I survived: The bombing of Pearl Harbor, which his teacher did not let him read for the free reading period of the day because it was too advanced for him.”

- Quartz

“Overall, I am very impressed with what Voice Dream Reader delivers. This is not a cheap TTS plain text file reader, but a polished text-to-speech player that offers a high-quality, beautifully realized reading and listening experience. If you are a consumer of vast text-based content who is always on the go or just want to expand your listening library beyond music and podcasts, Voice Dream Reader is a dream come true.”

- iPhoneLife

“Voice Dream Reader is hailed by many as the best mobile text-to-speech (TTS) app. It has potential uses by those with physical and learning challenges as well as those without. Any student, for example, who struggles with comprehension and retention of written information could benefit.”

- Examiner

Azure Text to Speech API reviews

Easy conversion from a voice recorded speech to text. Making speech into notes. When the user is not able to understand the speech he can leverage this API to understand what the user is trying to convey.

Accuracy of conversation is highly advanced and reliable

Pros & cons

Voice Dream Reader

Pros
Offline: does not require Internet connection
Design is easy to use and highly customizable
36 built-in iOS voices in 27 languages are also available for free

Cons
Robo-voices don't demonstrate expressive reading
Requires iOS 5 or later
Free version is nearly complete with all of the features, but it will only read the first 300 characters of any book or document

Azure Text to Speech API

Pros
APIs offered are very robust
Deployment is easy since its available on the cloud
It is directly as a service and no expertise in AI or ML is needed by the development team
Security of data since Azure promises that it does not store the data of the customers that is used by the service.

Cons
The pricing is also costly - so for an individual user, not on a company plan, this is not affordable
Different accents mistakes
More support for regional languages
