Marley is your personal reading assistant. Just take a photo of some text or upload one from your photo library and instantly hear it read to you out loud. If you do not want to hear it out loud, Marley displays the text from the page in a large, thick font with high contrast, making reading the text easier or just possible!

The built in word and character counter allows you to detect the number for words on a page, even if it is written by hand. You can then use the share button to send the text by email, messages or any of your favourite messaging services and social networks.

Marley will automatically detect the language of the text that it finds and translate it in to the language that your device is set to. You can also use the build in translation tools to manually select a language to translate the text in to.

Quickly act upon your scanned text with automatic detection for links, address, phone numbers and much more. Valuable detected data is highlighted in blue and is just a tap away from performing the related action.

The converted text can then be selected and copied in to a text editing app or used for quick look up for definitions, suggested web items, maps or other related information.

Marley offers a 7 day free trial. After the trial you will be asked to subscribe for a year. This is because both the image to text and text to speech service is paid for by us, as well as allowing us to keep working hard on Marley to make the app even better and your life a little easier.
