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

Voicepods reviews

When I first tried it and wrote about it Voicepods would only create voice recordings based on text that you wrote. This week Voicepods launched a free Chrome extension that will let you have the text of any webpage read aloud. There are other Chrome extensions that do the same. What makes Voicepods different is that while Voicepods reads the text of webpage it also makes a recording that you can save and playback whenever you want

- Anonymous

Voicepods offers the best of both worlds, as they combine an individual service with one that makes it easier for businesses to implement a text to audio API, wherever they need. One of the best things about Voicepods is that they’re much more user-friendly than many of the other choices. You can even create a custom voice that you can use for special projects, so you can get a lot more out of Voicepods than a lot of their competition. Finally, each of their voices sounds clear and natural, so you don’t think that you’re hearing a robot talk when you use their program.

“I have to say, Voice Pods is a one of a kind. The software allows me to quickly read out my Spanish passages, which helps me get my homework done. I can comprehend both English and Spanish thanks to using this device. ”

Reachdeck(formerly Browsealoud)- Read and Write reviews

We know that it takes on average 3 years for a person to disclose that they have a neurodiverse condition. The number of neurodivergent colleagues we have is higher than we think. That’s why we’ve made Read&Write available to every single colleague.

- Neil Eustice - Accessibility manager (Enterprise Wide Technology Group)

We decided early on that we wanted to make Read&Write available to everyone. It’s available for download anonymously from our internal software library. And that’s really important: staff can ‘self-serve’ without any kind of stigma or embarrassment if they don’t want to be identified as having additional literacy needs.

- Tony Antoniou Infrastructure Solutions Architect

Providing Read&Write shows that we’re willing to invest in the best support that’s available...it demonstrates that we really do invest in our staff and care about their wellbeing.

- Manal Sadik - Service Manager Language and Accessible support and Equality Advisor
