Life changer for uni students

One of the best apps I have ever purchased - I wish it had existed sooner! I’m an MA history student and used to find myself constantly drowning in reading but speechify has made it all completely manageable and pleasurable.
I’d highly recommend it for anyone who reads slowly or learns faster having things read to them. For students it is a game changer and honestly worth every penny. I used to spend hours a day staring at my laptop screen but now I can listen to my reading while on a walk or in the car.
Additionally, the HD voices are amazing (so lifelike) and I love the variety available. The ability to convert photocopies of books or articles completely surprised me. The words, despite being blurry on the original scan, were converted into digital text perfectly and read out smoothly.
The only improvement I could think of is creating the ability to delete repeated text automatically, as I find the publication information at the bottom of pdf book pages gets read out repeatedly throughout - this can be a annoying when listening in podcast format.

Cliff, you’re a genius!

I personally, discovered cliff weitzmann, on the Ali abdaal podcast, since then his energy is just so addicting, loved the dudes wisdom and perspective, wonder what the dude is like firing people up in person. Long story short: I’m a webdeveloper and have little knowledge of app development, but man THIS APP IS THOUGHT THROUHH EXTREMELY WELL THROUGH! I feel like a new way of obtaining knowledge has just been unlocked🔑
Cliff only wish you good vibes! :-)
Ps. Will subscribe to speechify premium ;-)
Pps. Go more on such guest talks like you did with Ali, if you wanna grow speechify, which you totally want to I’m sure. I listen to your problem running into ads etc. Do more of this your personality is your biggest assest to make this biiiiiiig Brother , Peace ✌️

I can actually study, but the word limitations are absurd and the premium price is too high

So, I’ve always had trouble reading, this is for multiple reasons with one of them being medical. Because I’m at college, I need to study and read a lot of different sources at a time. This app seemed perfect at first! That was until I found out about the word limitations; I would understand if I had used it to read like 10-20 pages of one of my text books, but just to try it I got a small document that said it would take 5 minutes to speak through, “Awesome” I had though at the time as it would normally take me 10-20 minutes. That is, until it got to the halfway mark, and it just stopped, it kept on telling me to go Premium so I checked to see how much... almost £12 a month is an unbelievable amount of money for a broke college student, it might not seem like a lot to other people but it mounts up to about almost £144 a year which is a lot for me, yes, it might say that it has unlimited amount of listening and other things but that is still a lot of money that at least I don’t have to spare.
