Quick Tip: If a word doesn't sound quite right, try spelling it phonetically.

Many of Speak's users have lost their ability to speak (often after surgery) and Speak helps to give them a voice again.

Speak does not require an internet connection, and is always optimised for the latest and greatest devices and software.

Wonderful Text-to-Speech App

This app is GREAT!!! I had surgery in my throat earlier this year and was unable to speak for two weeks--this app immensely helped me get through that time. I found the adjustable aspects extremely creative as well as entertaining. You can change the pitch and speed of the voice, and you can choose from a huge list of various accents! I'm glad I found this app, and I would recommend it to anyone who needs something like it. Not being able to speak if a very trying experience, and having this app to help out as well as add some entertainment value into your life is very nice :)

Speak - works

Took a few days for me to finally figure out that the book icon is a history of all phrases spoken and the star (when pressed for over a second) shows the phrases that were saved by a quick press. Hey I’m 75, it takes a while for this foggy brain🤪. I like the app. I just had major surgery and had my voice box removed, so this helps, especially with kids. I have an electronic larynx that I’m still learning how to use. And in a month or two I should be able to use my new voice.

Recommended to everyone

This app has great potential and very interesting features. I love this app. The other reviewers are complaining about the recording feature, and i do think that it does need some tweaking, but it works a lot better than what it did when it was introduced. I have an iPad air 2 and so I needed that updated. And if both people have the application, you can send text to speech voices back and forth. Try this application.
