Needs more simple changes

It’s okay, does the trick if you need it but I’d love some simple changes like the ability to skip a word. I read a lot of watermarked documents and if I could select the watermarked name as having no pronunciation (just a blank) it would make this so much more useable for me. I’d also like it if skipping a line meant a slight pause in speech, when I’m reading a script it really doesn’t deal well with dialogue. Potentially also if there was an option to deselect what the app reads? Since it reads the highlighted section, if we could highlight things beforehand for it to not read...not sure that’s efficient for the reader but the fact that it reads literally everything is the big issue for me.

Also, I laughed at how when I tried to leave a negative review as prompted by the app, it didn’t link me back to the App Store but when I clicked to leave a positive review, it linked me here. Sneaky, sneaky.

Sounds Robotic w/ no intonation

This has to be one of the worst readers ever. I purchased the Pro version but it wouldn’t let me give them a poor review.... go figure. Every time I would hit the one star it would boot me out. Do NOT waste your money purchasing the Pro because it’s no better than the free version. The Pro version only offers more voices to choose from, but they all sound so robotic that it really doesn’t matter which you choose. In addition, it cuts off the beginning and end to several words, and reads the text with absolutely no fluctuation or intonation in the voice. In addition, it reads the text as one continuous run-on sentence. As if all of that wasn’t bad enough, it literally reads EVERYTHING on the page.... so chapter headings, the references in parentheses, EVERYTHING. It’s definitely not worth buying the pro, or in my opinion, even downloading the free one. This app needs MAJOR improvements.

Can't download voices

you can only use it free for a small amount of time. When I bought the $10 pro version, it said I would get a free voice package. For the past week or so I have tried to download my new voices, but each time it finishes downloading, I get an alert that says "unable to download. This should be a temporary issue with our downloading server." I'm not sure I'll ever be able to download new voices

All the same, this is an app I use regularly. It organizes books and documents in a clear cohesive fashion and I have edited manuscripts and listened to academic articles on my 1 hour commute for years now.

When I changed to iPhone 11 it didn’t work, but I uninstalled and reinstalled and it came back like a charm!

Developer Response ,

We're very sorry for the inconvenience. To fix the server error problem, please uninstall and reinstall the app:

If you first downloaded NaturalReader free and then purchased the in-app upgrade to Pro, please ensure you are signed in as the Apple ID that made the original purchase. Reinstall NaturalReader free, tap "About Pro Version" then tap "Restore". It should then switch to the paid version.

If you purchased the NaturalReader Pro app directly, please sign into the Apple ID that made the purchase and navigate to your Apple Store Account information. Search for NaturalReader in the list of purchases, and tap to download and restore.

Ensure that you have alternative access to any important files in your Library, as this process will erase your app data. All files will have to be imported again for use. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
