Description

Speechify uses cutting edge Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning to synthesize the highest quality and most natural sounding voices in history. Designed to help people with Dyslexia, ADD, Concussions, Second Language Learners, Auditory Learners, Super Learners and Productivity Fanatics. 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. 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. Listen at up to 900 words per minute (2.5 pages per minute). Translate text with 98% accuracy into any of 50+ languages and have it spoken in your native language. 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. Sync books across your iPhone, Mac and iPad. Listen while driving, walking, cooking, eating, working out, etc. Story: I’ve been dyslexic my whole life. 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. Today, hundreds of thousands of people have been able to function in school and society because of Speechify. Remember, that above all else, your mission is to be who you needed most when you were growing up. Much love <3, Cliff Weitzman, Simeon Kostadinov and the rest of the Speechify Team.

My issue with reading normally is that I get distracted mid sentence… Speechify is a voice that never loses focus like my mind's voice does." - Sam “I suffer from A.D.D. and between this app and Audiobooks I have never felt more empowered... please know you made a real difference in my life" - Bill "Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!! My 8 year old is in the process of being officially diagnosed with dyslexia. We have struggled with reading and homework since kindergarten. This is a life changing resource for us!!! I'm hoping to have it worked into his IEP..." - Crissy "Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am literally crying. My nine year old daughter has Dyslexia and it has been very frustrating to find things that will help her. This was transformative for her. - Sara Go get the full Mac app here: https://getspeechify.com/ Subscription Pricing and Terms We don’t allow new people to pay us right now. Want to pay us?

Loved the ease of use

The program opens with a few questions that essentially sets up everything. Then its just a matter of importing your text.

Difficult for non-dyslexics

5
I found it hard to download text in to the speechify app to save and read later. I had to watch the tutorial many times and I still don't really understand. It's hit or miss. Maybe it's not for what I need it for-to save what I have written and read it back to me. But I think it is great for someone who is dyslexic and would be

Bring back Screenshot feature

2
The main reason I used this app was the screenshot feature, it had been what set it appart from competitors. Now that the screenshot feature has been removed don't really use the application. As other users have also mentioned, it is nearly impossible to edit the uploaded texts. This is annoying since often the words of uploaded document turn a sentence into one long incomprehensible word that needs to be broken up. Please fix these issues!

Junk

1
This was a waste of my time. Pure junk.

Good, but pauses for no reason

2
I like the app, but it pauses like every 5 minutes are less without me doing anything, so I have to keep pressing play for it to keep going, which is annoying.

Overall Awesome! But some serious user bugs

3
Overall - best text to speach product I've used. It's possible that I haven't learned all the tricks yet, but there's a bunch of little annoying things. ex: once you start reading a highlighted section you can't get it to stop before it reads the whole thing.
