Speak brings typed words and sentences to life using your iPhone, iPod or iPad!

• Beautiful, modern and sleek user interface.
• Sliders to adjust the Volume, Pitch and Rate of the voice.
• Option to change the accent/language of the voice.
• Favourite Phrases and Phrase History.
• Repeat feature let's you specify how many times your would like your phrase repeated.
• Recording feature to capture the screen and audio. This can then be saved or sent to your friends and family.
• Loads of settings to allow you to tweak Speak to behave just how you like.
• Support for Slide Over and Split Screen (on appropriate devices).

Additionally, you can connect Speak to a Bluetooth speaker/headphones to broadcast your text even further.

Quick Tip: If a word doesn't sound quite right, try spelling it phonetically.

Many of Speak's users have lost their ability to speak (often after surgery) and Speak helps to give them a voice again.

An internet connection is not required to use this app. Additionally, Speak is ad-free, has no in-app purchases and is always optimised for the latest and greatest devices and software.

Have fun! And feel free to drop me an email with any suggestions or comments:

What's New

Version 9.2

This update is primarily a bug-fixing one, and I know a number of you will be very pleased to hear that:
• The Recording feature is back — and this time it works, even on iPad!

A couple of other bug fixes:
• Speak no longer crashes when being launched on iOS 8 (sorry about that!).
• The text input cell no longer disappears when scrolling down and back up again.
• You can now see your app version number at the bottom of the settings screen — this information is included in any feedback emails you send me through the app to help with diagnosing any future issues.

Thanks to everyone who reported bugs to me!

Keep your eyes peeled for a big update coming in September with a number of improvements!

Wonderful Text-to-Speech App


This app is GREAT!!! I had surgery in my throat earlier this year and was unable to speak for two weeks--this app immensely helped me get through that time. I found the adjustable aspects extremely creative as well as entertaining. You can change the pitch and speed of the voice, and you can choose from a huge list of various accents! I'm glad I found this app, and I would recommend it to anyone who needs something like it. Not being able to speak if a very trying experience, and having this app to help out as well as add some entertainment value into your life is very nice :)

This app has great potential and very interesting features. I love this app. The other reviewers are complaining about the recording feature, and i do think that it does need some tweaking, but it works a lot better than what it did when it was introduced. I have an iPad air 2 and so I needed that updated. And if both people have the application, you can send text to speech voices back and forth. Try this application.

Outstanding and useful app

This app really shows how technology can help people. I would give it 6 stars if I could. I use it with an iPad and keyboard when my TMJ makes it painful to talk. Thank you for creating this app. One small improvement for usability would be to have the text input box automatically active after you press the enter key, so you could keep typing without having tap in the box again to enable typing.
