Story
I’ve been dyslexic my whole life.

Reading that sentence takes me the same amount of time and brain energy as most people take when solving a 4 digit long division math equation in their head.

I would pretend to read in elementary school.

Through hard work (and convincing a lot teachers to give me exceptions) I got accepted to Brown University.

One problem....I couldn’t read my summer reading book - there was no audiobook for this book.

I had no other choice, I hacked an old text to speech computer system to read the remaining portion of the book over night into my iPhone and then listen to it on the plane.

Today, hundreds of thousands of people have been able to function in school and society because of Speechify.

Remember, that above all else, your mission is to be who you needed most when you were growing up.

Much love <3, Cliff Weitzman, Simeon Kostadinov and the rest of the Speechify Team

Life save!!!

Okay, so I went ahead and gave it 4 stars. It’s a great app especially for me. I’m taking online classes. Before speechify I was downloading and printing all of my reading. I knocked out 8 articles (20-44 pigs. long) in 4 hours. AND the beauty of it, I’m not confined to sitting for hours at a time while reading. I can take my iPad to the gym and listen/read while on a treadmill or stationary bike. I just have ONE complaint. The app does this weird thing with the letter F. Con7lict, or Beni?it, kly (should be fly) etc. Every time the letter f appears it turns into something else. Except for e7ficient. Go kigure, lol! It does it on my iPhone and iPad. Both devices have current iOS and app updates. If you can fix it it would be great.
Ok that's my first review

Thanks for all of the hard work you've poured into this app. I'm glad I can create an account and see my uploads in my iPhone and Pad. It's getting better. Still does funny things with the letter F. Hey I believe in you guys, you can do it!!

Very good, but

I use txt readers as a way of proof reading my writings. This worked well for that and is something I just started trying. But then I got to a scene I had written that stuck in my memory. When the reader got to that point it had rewritten my work! I double checked everything and soon found another spot it had done this. The odd thing is it did it in a way that made sense, not choppy. It also did it in a way that I had never put to paper meaning it didn’t find some old version of the txt (pdf in this case). At the start it says “Create” and I checked the txt there, it was as I had written it, odd. I am having it read something right around 200 pages and this is the first time this reader broke the txt up into two files when doing the create. This I will fix by keeping parts to be read under 100 pages. Just an FYI for future updates.

Excellent update

Last few updates were excellent. The vastly improve the stability of the program. It no longer crashes the way it used to. I am now much more likely to use it since I know it will actually work.

There is still some stuff that I wish would happen. First, I still wish we could choose from that are for iOS voices, but the voices on Speechify are pretty good.

Second, the app still sometimes has trouble tracking the highlighting in the words. One suggestion about highlighting that I have is to not have the screen continually move, but rather have the highlights move and then when they get to the bottom allowing screen to refresh to the top of the page. Having the Chi like constantly move makes it harder for me to focus on what I am reading.

Third, I may have missed it but I don’t know how to change my phone settings or how far I am zoomed in, which I would very much like.

Lastly, this is more of a personal thing, but I would really like to have compatibility with Workflow or ifttt, so I can do things like mass import from Pocket or automatically update from Pocket because they’re text formatting is always going to be the best.

Thanks for a fantastic update I really really appreciate it. This is by far the best iteration so far
