Voice Dream Writer helps everyone write better: Text-to-speech proofreading reduces mistakes, phonetic and meaning search help you use the right words, and an active outline helps you organize and improve the structure of your writing.

• Featured in the US App Store Education Collection.

• "Voice Dream Writer's technically designed for people with reading disabilities, but it's useful for just about anyone who needs a little help proofing." - Lifehacker

Text-To-Speech Proofreading. Professional proofreaders recommend reading out loud as the best way to catch mistakes. Like a personal proofreader, Voice Dream Writer reads your writing using text-to-speech, so you can easily spot awkward sentences, grammatical errors and typos. Also, it can read words and sentences as you type or voice dictate. This way, you can type faster because you no longer have to look up to check the text you just wrote.

Word Finder. Voice Dream Writer helps you find the right words using phonetic search and meaning search. For example, search for "inuf" phonetically, and you will find "enough", and search for "Fast Africa Cat" by meaning and you will find "Cheetah." Word Finder also shows you the dictionary definition of a word as you type without you having to select anything or open another program.

Outline. As you write, Voice Dream Writer automatically creates an outline of headings, paragraphs and sentences. The Outline helps you structure your document better by giving you an always-on overview. You can also quickly navigate to a section in a long document without endless scrolling. Finally, you can drag and drop elements in the Outline to organize your writing. No more selecting, cutting and pasting large blocks of text.

Besides these unique features, Voice Dream Writer also comes with everything you would expect from any great writing tool:

• Comprehensive settings for text appearance
• Uncluttered writing area
• Search for text
• Search for misspelled words
• Word count
• Synchronize and backup with iCloud
• Import and export for Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box
• Preview and print with multiple themes
• Markdown support for formatting
• Export to Microsoft Word format (compatible with Apple Pages)
• Support for Bluetooth keyboard

The app is not only fully accessible, it was designed with students and adults with print disabilities in mind. There are special tools for VoiceOver users to manage the cursor, select text, and find and correct misspelled words by stepping through them. Voice-based Proofreading and Phonetic Search are invaluable for people with dyslexia. Also included is the research-proven Dyslexie font.

Voice Dream Writer will continue to evolve. We would love to hear from you!

High quality; if this is what you need, it works well!

I just re-downloaded this app to have another look and see how the update of progressed. Much better now! It is a proof reading app, however, not particularly a "voice to text" app. That is what I was really aiming for. It does work quite well with the built in speech to text engine however. Feature request? How about a character count display? That way I could you use it for composing tweets with far fewer typos!!!?

Old review on version 1.0
...ummm... Either I am being stupid (entirely possible) or this doesn't save the file you made... Which is one heck of a bug!
The Voice Dream Reader is a superb app, one of the very best of any kind, but is Voice Dream Reader seems to have failed on this early release. It is reasonable in that it helps you to proof read as you type, but that I pretty much it. Also without having saving your files for you, well ... Less said the better. Roll on release 2.

If you are dyslexic get this app . You won’t be disappointed it’s worth every penny and more . It doesn’t take long to get the hang of it and has cut down my having to go over my work by 90% . As a dyslexic if I had this app wen I was at school I might have actually been able to achieve something academic in my life. I have used voice dream ever since it came out and have relied on it for righting documents , wen they brought out this new app it was like a dream come tru , it seems to be helping me to correct some of my dyslexic tendencies. This has never happened with any other computer program or person for that matter ,it enables me to internalize my problem and focus on it properly , while doing work at the same time . My problem at school was always that the focus was alway just on my dysfunction. This app alleviates this problem . I could not recommend it more 👍👍👍

Voice Dream Writer review

What an app! There are some unique features you will not find in a mainstream WOrd Processing app, such as the ability to proofread using text to speech. There are also unique features beneficial to VoiceOver users, such as the ability to not only move by characters, words and lines; you can also move by paragraph and even headings where available. And this does not include the VoiceOver rotor either. And the feature list does not end there! In fact, there are too many to list here for this review, so why not spend the £7.99 and try it for yourself. Buy now! You will sure not regret it!
