Welcome to Talking Scripts.
An IOS app that READS PDF FILM AND TV SCRIPTS TO YOU..
"I was desperate for an app that could read me scripts in a simple easy way, dumping all the stuff I didn’t need to hear and getting me into the story. Talking Scripts is that app!"
(Actor, Thor, Beast of No Nation, Luther)
"It is blissful being able to listen to scripts while I am driving, cooking, walking - suddenly a weekend is my time again!"
(Director, Walking Dead, The Boys, The Americans)
With advances in Apple’s text-to-speech technology, we found a way to create an app which ‘reads’ a script to you, one that knows male from female characters, allowing you to have different voices for men and woman and your leads. An app that doesn’t get bogged down in reading headers, footers, page number, etc.
• Create script notes, with Siri integration
•. Actors can now learn lines with Line Learning feature
• Set reminders
• Variable voice pitch
• Variable voice speed
• Night mode
• Pause for calls
• Play a music playlist on your favourite player as you listen to a script
• Knows the gender of your script's characters
• Learns the gender of any new character names, so it gets smarter as you use it.
• Bookmarks your last position in the current script
• Can learn pronunciation of new words (Apple feature)
• Ignores page numbers, headers, footers, continued, watermarks etc
• Use high quality enhanced voices which you can choose
Try out the QUICK START TUTORIAL when you start the app, it takes you through the basic features.
Turning text into speech is rapidly evolving with companies like Apple making huge strides each year to make more realistic voices. Because this app uses Apple voices it means that at the moment it sounds a bit like Siri. Maybe not the best acting, but getting better all the time. We have found it takes about five minutes to get used to the voices and really get into the script, so hang in there, it’s worth it!
Now you already have standard voices installed on your IOS device. They are there for accessibility purposes, but Apple has some great enhanced voices you can download, which are way better than the standard ones. There are instructions in the app on how to download them. We have compiled a table that rates a lot of the IOS voices and it is on the website, so check it out. https://www.talkingscripts.com
We want Talking Scripts to be amazing so we are charging about the cost of a cup of coffee per month if you use it regularly (more than one script per month). If you just listen to a script a month, it is free.
If you like Talking Scripts, please rate it and tell your friends. And of course let us know how we can improve it!!

Ratings and Reviews
If you read scripts, this is a game-changer!
Easy to use and works well. An amazing time-saver! It really takes the strain out of reading through a big pile of scripts plus I got a lot of stuff done at the same time! I was surprised how fast I adjusted to the mechanical voices and I think that as more enhanced voices come out, the listening experience will become better and better. Very neat note-making feature.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your review. And the 5 stars!! Actually there are some great enhanced voices that sound less mechanical already available. You can download them for free. Just follow the instructions in the Help section on the More page. There is even a handy table that gives our personal ratings for all the voices - it's on our website at http://www.talkingscripts.com. In the future - if people like this app, we will be bringing Idris's voice into the mix, along with some other actors we know, so watch this space. Happy listening.
Really neat app!
Really neat app! Been listening to audiobooks for years but never thought I could listen to my scripts.
Definitely highly recommend to anybody in the industry. Many thanks to the team!
