Get the really simple app that reads text to you. Just paste (or drop) (or share) text into this app and it’ll start talking. It has a few settings (like speech speed and voice) and a few controls (like play/pause) and that’s it. Is it amazing? No. Is it pretty good? Maybe. Is it free? Yes.
Added a setting to show how much time remains when playing text. It's a little crude, it's not perfectly accurate, but it's free! Woohoo!!! Look on the settings page for details—because it is turned off by default.
Ratings and Reviews
Simple and effective text reader
As a writer, I really like this app for reading text. Great for the editing process to get a sound of the work in a different (and more flat) voice. It’s easy to use, can be used with a variety of writing platforms (I’ve been using it with Bear and Word). I can’t believe it is free!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
