Voice Dream equals Phenomenal as Always

As happens every time, I am once again blown away by this developer/s. For three years, Voice Dream Reader has remained the only tts app I continue to use every day.
I have been waiting for a good affordable scanner app for the blind, and at last it has arrived. I am more greatful than I can say, and would have paid three times the price for this amazing app.
I will be going to college later this year, and I am now feeling more confident about being able to access my future materials.
Thanks so much Voice Dream Team!

Love it!

I just downloaded it and ran a couple of tests, and it works amazingly well. It’s especially great when used (as designed) in conjunction with the Boice Dream app. My only suggestions for improvement are 1) Allow it I just downloaded it and ran a couple of tests, and it works amazingly well. It’s especially great when used (as designed) in conjunction with the Boice Dream app.

My only suggestions for improvement are

1) Allow it to work on photographs previously on my device; and

2) The optional tone that can be played when an edge is detected could be a lot more quiet and subtle and pleasant and still be equally effective. It would be much more effective, actually, because I wouldn’t feel compelled to turn off that option. Let me suggest two tones: one quick, short (and pleasant) one for when an edge is first detected, and then another for when an edge is no longer detected—and silence the rest of the time.

What Exciting News

I have used Voice Dream Reader for years and have hoped for a scanning app. I haven’t used it yet and will update accordingly when I do. In the meantime, I hope support for exporting to Voice Dream Writer will be included. I do not see this in the description, so forgive me if it is there and I missed it. The reason I mention this specifically, is that it is my experience that even the best scanned documents need a little bit of editing. This could also be because I am still figuring out which scanning program I like the best though.
