Future Apps presents Speak it!, the highest quality text to speech App available for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and now iPad! Speak it! utilizes the same voice synthesis engine that has made our iSpeak translator apps such a great hit. The text to speech engine is so powerful, it reproduces speech which is clear and natural sounding.
Copy emails, documents, web pages, PDF files, and more; paste them into Speak it!, and have the text spoken back to you with the highest quality text to speech engine available anywhere. You can even create the same quality audio files of the text to speech which can then be emailed to anyone you like! Need an elegant way to make announcements over your PA system? Speak it! can do that too. You can easily set up a list of pre-made announcements, and play them with a press of a button. You can even use Speak it! as a fun way to prank your friends! Speak it! is your own custom soundboard, with endless phrases and possible uses.
We have also realized in the past year there has been a growing disability community using Speak it! We would like to thank those users for supporting Speak it!, and for all the incredible feedback we have received.

No good for iPhones. Great for iPad
Works a treat on iPads (I would give it 5stars). On an iPhone however it's almost useless (1 star). I gave it 3 to average it out (sadly there isn't a 2.5 stars option!).
Anyway, the software needs a massive improvement on iPhone. Basically once you have typed your words you want it to speak.... To then make it speak you have to turn the iPhone 90 degrees (from portrait to landscape or vice versa) in order to access the "speak it" button. You have to do this EVERY single time you type something. Which isn't practical. I've just had voice surgery and can't speak for a fortnight so will have to find an alternative app for my iPhone.
PLEASE PLEASE fix this in a future update
Excellent app. Is it possible to do an iPhone 5 update, as it's still showing small on iPhone 5 screen n I keep missing the 'space' bar as its higher up on screen. I use this app everyday and it would be mint if you could update please!
Easy and functional, but ...
Very helpful and functional, I just wish there were more export options other than .aiff files, which have limited compatibility and not all iOS converters can make use of them. How about being able to export in .MP3 format, or even .wav?
