Description

New in Version 3.0:

★ Added a “Phonetic Spelling” option to each word in the word list. This allows you to enter an optional spelling of the word in a way that the computer voice can pronounce it more clearly.


★ Added a “Usage Phrase” option to each word in the word list. When a Usage Phrase is present, iSpeak and Spell will announce the spelling word and then follow it with “AS IN...” and then it will speak the Usage Phrase. This feature is especially funny to use when you use Urban Dictionary to create your spelling words and examples.


★ Added high resolution support for iPhone 4 devices


★ Improved the appearance of the information and configuration dialogs.


★ Added new controls for adjusting the talking speed of the computer voice.


iSpeak and Spell

A multilingual text-to-speech application styled to emulate the original Speak & Spell.

Enjoy hours of fun listening to iSpeak and Spell use voices and dialects from around the world to read aloud anything you type.

iSpeak and Spell lets you enter your own list of words (simulating the “expansion modules” of the original) or you can use it with the over 200 words built right inside.

Custom list of words also includes:


★ Phonetic Spelling option for each word in the word list. This allows you to enter an optional spelling of the word in a way that the computer voice can pronounce it more clearly.


★ Usage Phrase option for each word in the word list. When a Usage Phrase is present, iSpeak and Spell will announce the spelling word and then follow it with “AS IN...” and then it will speak the Usage Phrase. This feature is especially funny to use when you use Urban Dictionary to create your spelling words and examples.

iSpeak and Spell will announce the words you've chosen and will incorporate those words into the same fun and challenging activities the original icon of the early 80's offered.

iSpeak and Spell presents all of the word challenge games in rounds of 10 words each. Before and after each round, you are in “Free Play Mode” where you can type anything you want and listen to iSpeak and Spell say it.

After each round of word challenges, iSpeak and Spell reports your results and then uses that information as it creates new word lists for each new round.

iSpeak and Spell will detect which words seem to be giving you the most trouble and will repeat those intermittently through each round.

A useful learning tool that’s fun and entertaining.

iSpeak and Spell will speak in any of the following dialects:

English (US)
English (UK)
English (Lancashire)
English (Scottish)
English (West Indies)
English (West Midlands)
Spanish
Spanish (Latin American)
Czech
Danish
German
Finnish
French
French (Belgium)
Hungarian
Icelandic
Italian
Latin
Norwegian
Polish
Portuguese (Brazil)
Portuguese (Portugal)
Romanian
Slovak
Swedish
Turkish


** Note that because iSpeak and Spell is retro-styled for the nostalgic at heart, it does not support international keyboard characters.

Customer Reviews

Disappointing

Well, that was disappointing. I expected it to sound like the original, and it didn't. It also won't speak the words you type. Don't buy this rip-off. Texas Instruments should sue these guys for making such an inferior product and tricking people into thinking it was like the original.

Does not work as described.

I purchased this app because of the expansion module feature. However, this feature has a bug that causes manually-entered words to appear in the wrong field. Also, the keyboard does not hide once it is opened, making the application worthless.

Nothing Like the original

It is too bad that I can't get my .99 cents back because there was no way to find out if this app is similar to the original speak and spell, and for those who are searching for the nostalgia of the original, this is NOT it, just FYI.
