Voice Dream Reader

Text to Speech

VIEW

You’re running late for your bus. In spite of this, you want to catch up on those longreads your friend was raving about, so you slip on some headphones. Within seconds, a soothing voice reads the story to you as you begin your commute. By the time you’re in the office, you’re all caught up (and less stressed out).

Voice Dream Reader is an amazing accessibilty tool that can read text from a variety of sources – from a work presentation to your personal journal.

Get started

Voice Dream Reader lets you select one premium Acapela voice, or choose from any of iOS 11’s integrated VoiceOver selections. The synthetic speech sounds amazingly realistic and additional voices are available for purchase.

To alter the voice, tap the gear icon on the bottom right of the Library page and then pick Manage My Voices. From there, adjust speed, pitch and volume. You can check if you like the voice by writing something; the app will read back the words.

That gear on the Library page is also where to access the User Manual and Quick Start instructions – both are great resources if you have questions.

Give it something to talk about

To add files to be read aloud, press the + button on the top left corner of the screen, then tap File Browser. Voice Dream Reader supports tonnes of file types – from PDFs to Pages documents, and integrations with Dropbox, Pocket, Evernote and Instapaper.

Voice Dream Reader also supports Safari's share button to add articles – tap Save to Voice Dream in the bottom pane, then tap Article > Open. Once you’ve saved the article, Voice Dream Reader can even read it offline. Now even the most underground of commutes can be a good place to close your eyes, relax and soak up ideas.
