Mixed fellings

On one side it a very useful app. It’s saves you time and you can make the most out it.

On the other side it tricked me into buying US English when I wanted to restore UK English and the “f” the drive me crazy. It reads firm as RM it is really confusing when you are not reading while listening to decifre words with “f” in it.

Also couldn’t find any customer support.

My best app ever!

This is my best app ever. I'm in the process of writing a (very long) book so I decided to use this app to help in the editing. I made each chapter into a PDF so the app could read it back to me. I found this was a far better way of picking out the errors than just reading it myself. Works brilliantly! Only one tiny problem... my book is about the ego and some of the voices pronounce it 'eggo'. Thankfully, the male American voice gets it right. :-)

I found their customer services people to be excellent, responding quickly and efficiently to any queries I have had.

Highly deserving of the five star rating!

Not too bad

Will have to disagree with some of the bad reviews on here
Yes it's not free, I paid for the uk English voice
I have a lot of very large pdfs to read with no time to read them . So thought I'd try this so I could listen to them in the car.
I would of expected a much more robotic voice than it actually is. Sounds half way between normal and robotic but definitely useable and understandable. I set it to 200 words per minute.
Only a couple of annoying points , as it reads bullet points as "bullet" and doesn't like abbreviations. But in fairness they aren't words anyway so what do you expect.
It would be good if you could add a manual feature where you can highlight areas you don't want it to read , like the header and footer, or the index pages, etc so it can jump straight into the content.
Other than that I don't regret paying for this , as I did find there aren't many products of this nature on the market that are any good . There is room for improvement but it's good enough to warrant the cost
