Ratings and Reviews
I Love this App!
This app is the best and most easy to use program I have found for reading text out loud. I use it for all my work in school. I love the option for changing the speed and for changing the voice of the reader. I only wish you could open two tabs at once and
could change the speed it reads in the middle of it reading (instead of needing to stop the audio, change the speed, and restart from the begining). All that being said, still the best app I've come across for text to speech.
Convienent And Simple
This is the type of thing you would hope was already on your computer but at least it was free. While it could be more fancy and allow more options, this text to speech program is more than sufficient for my purposes.
Turning text to audio and making those files easily accessable while still being free. Forces a review but I think the agressiveness is what put it near the top of the search options for me to find...
I endorse this app regardless.
Love the sound quality and ease of use
I learn more from documents when I can hear and read them at the same time. Speakline lets me do that easily. It is fast and the voice quality is amazing. I was listening today and noticed that the voice included sounds of the speaker inhaling between sentences. It's a small touch but it makes a huge differrence.
