Edit Out Loud instantly converts your manuscript to audio and allows you to listen from your smartphone. Now you can edit your novel on the metro, while jogging, or anywhere.

Simply tap, record, or type in a comment if you hear a grammar error, plot hole, or a boring section of your novel. Comments you add while listening in the app will appear in your source doc—Word, Google Docs, or Scrivener—so you can fix them later.

You can even share audio drafts with beta readers so they can listen from anywhere and add comments back to your source document.

Download Edit Out Loud today so you can make editing as fun as writing!

Totally worth the subscription cost!

I’ve been using this app for a few months now for my writing projects, and after using it every day I decided to purchase the subscription, which has been a fantastic upgrade, since I can listen to longer strings of my project and edit multiple projects at a time.

I’ve run into some hiccups here and there but the developer has been very responsive (and very friendly I might add!)

If you are working any long form media, like a book or article, and like me, you’re eyes tend to gloss over after the 3rd or 4th read through, I highly recommend giving this app a try.

Saved Tons Time Editing my Novel

I can’t begin to quantify how many hours this app saved me. I used this app to edit my entire 130k word novel. I was able to listen and add comments on my way to work, which was much easier than trying to find time to pick through chapters after work. Then, when I got back to my computer, all the notes and comments I’d left for myself were there waiting for me so I could address them quickly. The fact that I’d catch things listening that I missed when reading and could share my book’s audio with beta readers and download their comments was icing on the cake!

This app has the "write" stuff

I've been using the text to speech function on my computer to read my novels out loud when I was editing, but found it clunky and not user-friendly, so I was thrilled to find Edit Out Loud on a Google search. It has made the revision process much more streamlined, helped me catch redundancies, inconsistencies, typos, and plot holes I wouldn't have seen otherwise. This app was definitely designed by a real writer! Being able to share an audio version of my novel with Beta readers is ingenious.

I'd highly recommend it to all my fellow writers.
