Pretty Good.

I wasn’t sure at first. But, I find this more useful than the built in MAC READER useful for reading longer text because of the PAUSE & START AGAIN keys.

- Default “Paul” Sounds Human Enough. It’s much better tan any of the others. Adjust his speed to your choice.
- *** The nice thing about THIS APP is the option of “PAUSE & “RESTART. Good for longer texts.
- For shorter texts I just use the built in READER on my Mac ( “CONTROL + ESC” ), but that doesn’t have a pause option. So make of that what you will.
- Also, you can upload any text to the reader in similar fashon that you would upload a photo or PDF in an attachment. Very easy.

Good luck.



I copy the text I have to read to this app, and then listen to this, instead of reading by my eyes. You know, human are kind of listening animal. It helps me a lot when I am going through studying materials.

a useful tool

This application is great when you need to hear what you have written. It would be a better tool if the voices that read your text sounded more human.
