• Text to Speech Voices
ClaroSpeak Free uses the iOS system voices. Buy extra high-quality Nuance Expressive and Acapela voices in-app.
• Word Prediction
Word prediction helps with writing more quickly and accurately. Train dictionaries from the current text so the best suggestions come up first.
• Visual Highlighting
Text is highlighted as the text is read back. Highlighting allows you to coordinate reading and listening. ClaroSpeak lets you pick the colour and style of highlighting required.
There are four highlighting modes to choose from: none, word by word, word trail, or sentence by sentence highlighting.
• Font & Layout
Change the font type, size or colour to suit your needs. Layout the text for easier reading by adjusting the character, line and paragraph spacing and adjusting the page margins. Text can be formatted bold, italic and underlined to emphasise.
• Sharing your text
Text created within ClaroSpeak can be emailed, messaged, printed, opened in another app, or copied and pasted into another app, like Safari. Sending the text to Facebook and Twitter lets you join in with social media.

App crashes & no response from developer
The app crashes when using cereproc Heather, and cereproc Jess is “no longer available” but yet, hasn’t been removed from the app. I might just demand my money back...
Developer Response ,
Thank you for taking the time to write this review.
Were you able to contact our technical support team via firstname.lastname@example.org? I don't believe our support team recall dealing with this such issue. Please get in touch and we'll be able to respond directly there.
We are currently having licensing issues with CereProc, which prevents the voices from working. Please accept our apologies for this. We're working to resolve this and in the meantime, will be removing all CereProc voices from our apps until this is resolved.
