The program I desperately needed!
After throat surgery I needed a way to "speak" efficiently for a week to weeks. I purchased about 5 IOS and a couple windows as I have both versions of tablets. Two necessary requirements: a somewhat natural voice, not the stark synthesized voice of several, and the ability to clear the screen immediately after speaking! This program has both features and even a number of ways to clear the screen after speaking allowing for immediate starting of the next sentence without several wasted key strokes as was required of the others! My only desire for this program would be access other voices, but "Ryan" will work just fine! I am thrilled to have this aid!
Absolutely love it!
I use this app during my long drive between work & home. Beforehand I will copy & paste interesting articles from the internet which this app will "read" to me during my drive. Will slow the voice for more technical articles; faster for casual reading. I wish a single click (as opposed to double click) from the title list brings me to the read page, and that I have option to automatically read aloud from there. Otherwise the best text-to-speech program available.
Really useful app!
Very good app. I use it for scripting out speeches and presentations and then hearing it over and over again to lock in the content. This makes preparation very easy! One wish is is love to see a way to have a quick click button in email and text apps to automatically have those read (say, in a car), without having to copy and paste content into the app. But this is still a great app. Great consistent voice and pronunciation of written words, phrases, abbreviations! Nice job!!
