Voices need a bit of tweaking

So for the most part, I love this app. I spent a long time at work doing very boring monotonous task, and this app allows me to listen to online literature anytime I want. It has a simple problem however. This app cannot handle ellipsis, and it sometimes cannot handle some words. There is one story I was listening to where This app could not pronounce the word “lunatic”. For some reason it would treat it as a bunch of symbols and characters. What is strange is that only the Fred voice can handle these things, but Fred sounds terrible. I would like the option to be able to purchase some better high-quality voices.

On the upside I love that this is a one time purchase, and it handles, for the most part, webpages rather well. Trying to find a word to start on can be a bit finicky at times, but all and all this is a rather good app. I would recommend it over the others.

Good Application

This is a really good app that reads words allowed. I’m using the application to read PDF books. It is working very well. It does a good job of reading books that may have two columns on one page with tables, charts and graphs. It does a good job of reading the left column of words first and then the right column of words. It will read the charts and graphs also, so if you don’t want that read, all you have to do is press on the next section you want read. Its a life saver. Also, it works in multi task mode, so you can have PDF reader pulled up, highlighting within your PDF file and making notes while the app is reading to you (e.g. left side of screen has the voice app reading and the right side has the actual PDF book open) One other application I tried would not allow this, which was odd. For only about $8, I say this application is a bargain. I’ve already used the application to read hours of text to me. It is definitely saving me some eye strain. Word pronunciation is pretty decent, but I would follow along as the text reads to you, just Incase the reader pronounces some words awkwardly. Overall, a really good application.

Incredible so far!

I was using Speechify before I found this app and I thought it was great, even though it had some problems. Many of those problems, that I thought were minor annoyances at the time, actually made it so that I couldn’t justify buying a premium subscription. I haven’t had any of those problems here.

This app can be used in split screen, can play in the background while I take notes in a different app, works incredibly well with pdfs, even big ones (although gets easily thrown off by tables and graphs), and that has made it everything I couldn’t rely on Speechify for.

That being said, I do have a suggestion. The developers could provide more options for speed, because it seems that there is a big market for that, and I’m also starting to feel like 2x is still too slow.
