Get the really simple app that reads text to you. Just paste (or drop) (or share) text into this app and it’ll start talking. It has a few settings (like speech speed and voice) and a few controls (like play/pause/rewind) and that’s it. Is it amazing? No. Is it pretty good? Maybe. Is it free? Yes.
Updated for iOS 12. Fixed a bug with the share extension. Now the app continues speaking from where you left off, even if you haven't launched the app in a while. And you can start speaking anywhere in the text by long pressing a word. And I probably added some other unremarkable features... but who can remember at this point? Sorry.

Simple and effective text reader
As a writer, I really like this app for reading text. Great for the editing process to get a sound of the work in a different (and more flat) voice. It’s easy to use, can be used with a variety of writing platforms (I’ve been using it with Bear and Word). I can’t believe it is free!
Love this app. No problems or hiccups. Easy to use. Thank you.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
