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.

By far the best text-to-speech app but premium only available in yearly subscription

I've tried a bunch of text-to-speech apps and the premium version of this one is definitely my favourite. It's premium voices are by far the closest representation of someone actually reading to you.

The free version is okay, but the cadence of the voice gets very clunky and robotic. It regularly pauses in places that are confusing (I.e, in the middle of a sentence, which makes the sentence sound awkward and impacts what the sentence sounds like it means versus what it actually means). I would have no issue with the free voices being clunky, if the premium subscription was more affordable. There is, admittedly, a contingent in the free version to get x number of words spoken in a premium voice: the more you listen the more premium words you "earn". But of course this means that you have to suffer through the clunky, robotic voices, which ends up being more of an exercise in deciphering than listening.

The free trial period for premium is very short (3 days) and after that you can only get a premium annual subscription, which isn't cheap. As a uni student I don't have £150-ish to spend on an app no matter how useful I think it would be. There is so much reading to do at uni, I would gladly take some of it in the form of audio if it were more affordable. I think the developers of this app are missing a trick by not having the option to pay monthly.

This app is really brilliant I was there diagnosed dyslexia when I went to college it happened on the after I went to the first college I had trouble so when I went to the second college they gave me a dyslexia test and it made me realise that all that time when I struggled at school as well as in college it was because of that reason I found out my weight strengths and weaknesses and I know now that this was because I wasn’t lazy or I wasn’t dumb it’s because I was different and I just needed that special help of course I still try to read even though it’s been difficult but lucky enough when phone started doing text reading out the words to you and then suddenly I found this app it has been a major help I’m now listening to more books than I have ever heard before and I find it much better for people like us who have problems of Reading to really make a difference therefore I would recommend completely to people who need help of reading this app use it it’s helped in such a long way ….. thank you to those who made this app 🙏✨😊
