Big waste of money, stay clear
My brother uses the Speak & Read to communicate with the family. He had a stroke when he was one year old. Is there a way you could create the Speak & Read for the iPad? I know his original one is going to stop working and I don’t want him to be without it. Please consider creating an app. Thank you.
The original had a "Say It" function that would read out ten words that you had to spell afterwards -- this doesn't seem to work the same. Also the original Spell A used simpler words. This does not seem to differentiate between Spell A-D. Ah well.. it's entertaining to some degree but makes me want to go out an shell on a used-yet-functional version of the real thing.
This is the same voice used in many electronic music tracks in the 80'a and 90's. It would have been nice to add a feature not found in the original, such as speaking words you type into it. Menu options are too small to read clearly.
This app is a piece of crap. It literally does nothing. It just opens and that's it. Save your money! It's junk!!
Very difficult to understand the words. Even "best voice" has an English accent which is very difficult to understand,
It does sound like the original voice. I saw that it had an alternative voice that would be easier for the kids, but I don't think that voice is very easy to understand. I can't find any directions so maybe there are settings that I'm missing but if so, it looses stars for not being intuitive. The original machine had modules for different word lists. You could also cycle through several lists in the machine. This appears to only have "Spell A" single list. This list goes from the word "to" to "thorough" in the same list, it's not practical for my 6yo and just frustrates him not to use it. It would be nice with this new technology to allow the parent the ability to edit, or at least control, the word lists.
As previous review mentions, the newer voice is MUCH easier to understand & the "British" accent makes it more fun for my son. (original voice very nostalgic - but could not understand) Fun for al ages
Its a cute speak and spell emulator. The buttons are almost too small to see on the iphone. Might be better on ipad. Sounds like the original. Would like the button text to be a bit larger.
This is the classic speak n spell in all its' unintelligible glory. I appreciate them keeping the same sounds, but the original voice is a little rough for a default. It wasn't until after I played for a while, gave up and wrote a review and read some more that I found a way to change the voice into a more modern one. It's hidden under the # key on the keyboard.
