Whatʹs Great

1. I had no other choice, I hacked an old text to speech computer system to read the remaining portion of the book over night into my iPhone and then listen to it on the plane.

2. Upload a PDF, import a website link, copy text into the app, share from Google Drive, Dropbox, or iCloud, and Speechify will speak the document to you - turn your work/homework into a podcast.

3. Take a picture of any physical text or book and Speechify will read it to you like an audiobook using OCR and Text To Speech.

4. Reading that sentence takes me the same amount of time and brain energy as most people take when solving a 4 digit long division math equation in their head.

5. Designed to help people with Dyslexia, ADD, Concussions, Second Language Learners, Auditory Learners, Super Learners and Productivity Fanatics.

6. RETAIN MORE: Academic research shows that listening and reading at the same time results in significantly higher levels of comprehension AND an improvement in the listener’s reading speed even when not listening.

Reading that sentence takes me the same amount of time and brain energy as most people take when solving a 4 digit long division math equation in their head. I would pretend to read in elementary school. Through hard work (and convincing a lot teachers to give me exceptions) I got accepted to Brown University. One problem....I couldn’t read my summer reading book - there was no audiobook for this book. I had no other choice, I hacked an old text to speech computer system to read the remaining portion of the book over night into my iPhone and then listen to it on the plane.

      Handy Took, Though Extremely Llimited

      This tool, while handy, is terrible for editing, an aspect many authors would readily use such a tool for. For example, despite reading dialogue in fiction, it won't speak ANY of the punctuation, so there's no way to distinguish the start or end of dialogue from the narrative, and its worthless when you have the typical dropped-ending quotes. Thus, aside from getting a 'feel' for the language flow, you can't identify when anyone starts or stops speaking. As a work around, I create an extensive library of punctuation marks, where it converts each opening smart quote mark into the text "(Opening double quote)" and each em-dash as "(em-dash)", which makes an absolute mess of the text. Adding verbal punctuation as a user-selectable option would easily earn you an extra two stars.

      This software saved me hours on my resume.

      I love this tool. I had been spending weeks, editing and revising my resume until I destroyed it again. I found this tool, and with in two days it was done and amazing. I havea hard time reading so hearing how it sounds was incredibly helpful. Thank you so much for this affordable and amazing app. Jen Harlow

      When it works...

      I just installed Speechify. When I want to change the title from New Document to a proper title it glitches and then I have to shut it down and start it back up. It will also read for a bit and then glitch or studder the same word over and over. I only have to click on it and it will start working again, but it is a defect. The whole trying to title a new document has be baffled.

      Awesome Tool, Unexpectedly Quits Often

      I am loving the usefulness of this app. It helps in keeping me focused on readings. Although, I am finding that when I create a new file, and I begin to input text into the new file, the app unexpectedly quits. It doesn't happen every time, but has happened three times in the last day since I bought it. I love the app though, and am looking forward to when this issue can be resolved!
