What’s New

Version 2.3

We're keeping up with the latest macOS Mojave update by introducing Dark Mode compatibility.

This version also fixes a few minor bugs to streamline use with a Dvorak keyboard and to keep the playback volume steady. It also addresses issues with exporting files made with the Alex voice.

Thanks for using the app!

Solid Product

I've tired others. This is comfy and does the job on my Mac Mini Mojave.

GhostReader is the best Text-To-Speech App

I am very happy that GhostReader continues to be updated.

The ability to use Apple's voices is fantastic. Apple has the best accessibility features for disabled people of any computer company. And the Mac and IOS text to speech capability is second to none. Apple's voices are the highest quality of any available commercially. This is why even the blind can use an iPhone more easily than any smartphone.

GhostReader is simply the best Text to Speech software available. I use it to turn my scanned books and eBooks to audio-books that I can listen to when driving and traveling.

To do the conversions, I find it is best to extract the text and past the text into the GhostReader app window so you can customize the pronunciation when needed. It is the capability to customize the output where GhostReader stands above the competition.

There is no comparison. GhostReader's audio output is the most human-like and listenable output available.

The Best

This is a 5 star app hands down. It does OCR so its not just a reader and it easily converts to an audio and even itunes file.

Developer Response ,

Hi innerstanding, thank you so much for your positive review of GhostReader Plus! We are always happy when people enjoy our software. While GhostReader Plus does not have OCR (Optical Character Recognition) functionality, where the software can recognize text in an image and convert it to editable text, the software is an excellent reader and can convert text to an MP4 file or an iTunes-ready MP4 file. Please feel free to email if you ever have questions GhostReader Plus or are experiencing an issue. Our team is ready and always happy to help. :-)
