Ratings and Reviews
I'd like a refund!
I tried to listen to a 100 page docx' continually crashed on the first two pages. Black lines up and down the screen. Had to close app. Or it just simply froze.
Asked it to 'speak from here', gave it more than the benefit of the doubt (even tapped very slow) just not happening! It either played from start every time - tedious, and refused to start from mid text - as when asked to do so - it seemed to go back to the contents page every time.
Utterly frustrated, and won't part with my money in the future.
Possibly ok on reading small amounts of copied/hi lighted text.
Pretty cool actually!
Its not slow or confusing, you can speed up the speech. Can copy any document or article from the web, it automatically pastes it , and reads it for you in a pretty accurate voice! Pretty good if you cant be bothered to read an article or are driving and want to read something. Only issue is the trial limits the length of a document to a few paragraphs at a time and £6.99 for the full version is bit pricey, maybe if it was £2 id be tempted, but for free its good for a bit..
Just tested most of the Free text-to-speech apps for the iPad.
This is the best for reading longer documents.
The voices are good but not the best. It has lots of control options. Unfortunately a small amount of crashing.
