The best text-to-speech app

Elm Mill

This app is FAR superior to any other text-to-speech iphone app out there right now because it highlights words so you can better follow along. The speeds match any other app, but this industry still doesn’t get that the human mind can make little sense out of a paragraph read at 700 words per minute. I’m pretty sure the brains limits are around 450 wpm, give or take 50 wpm or something.

In any case, this app has everything every other app has but more quality features. The one thing I would suggest is to allow a save option for your speed rate because I sometimes reset that and I hate having to tune the speed rate all over again.

The only thing wrong with this app is that the scrolling sometimes hops to the bottom while i’m scrolling through a large piece of text the app is reading.

Excellent App


This app has given me a voice again! My jaw was recently paralyzed, and I've been passing notes and writing e-mails at work just to communicate. That is no longer necessary with this app. I tried multiple text-to-speech apps, and this one is the best by far. There are lots of voices to choose from, you can save your most commonly used words and phrases, and you can even increase the font size so it's easier to read. Even though the ads are unobtrusive, I paid the $1.99 to remove them. This app is worth a lot more than that, but they're giving it away! Highly recommended, worth your time.

Laryngitis made this app a necessity


Having lost my voice, I needed a way to communicate with others that would be easy to use. The doctor insisted on no taking for at least 24-48 hours, and I didn’t know how I’d be able to exist without talking. This app is perfect for my needs. I’m able to type up what I want to say and I can stay a part of the conversation without having to scribble on a notepad and pass papers around like I’m in some secret society meeting. I like that I can change the font size and the speaking voice and volume, as well as the speed of the text.
