Quick Tip: If a word doesn't sound quite right, try spelling it phonetically.

Many of Speak's users have lost their ability to speak (often after surgery) and Speak helps to give them a voice again.

Speak does not require an internet connection, and is always optimised for the latest and greatest devices and software.

Wonderful Text-to-Speech App

This app is GREAT!!! I had surgery in my throat earlier this year and was unable to speak for two weeks--this app immensely helped me get through that time. I found the adjustable aspects extremely creative as well as entertaining. You can change the pitch and speed of the voice, and you can choose from a huge list of various accents! I'm glad I found this app, and I would recommend it to anyone who needs something like it. Not being able to speak if a very trying experience, and having this app to help out as well as add some entertainment value into your life is very nice :)

Recommended to everyone

This app has great potential and very interesting features. I love this app. The other reviewers are complaining about the recording feature, and i do think that it does need some tweaking, but it works a lot better than what it did when it was introduced. I have an iPad air 2 and so I needed that updated. And if both people have the application, you can send text to speech voices back and forth. Try this application.

Some shortcomings

Why are default and more preferred SIRI male/female voices are missing?

When a phrase is spoken, do not add it to the list again redundantly if it already exists in the list because the list grows too long quickly. Just sort the existing item in the list to the top to show it as a recent item.

Why can’t we record just the audio instead of screen recording? It says synthesizer but does not have this capability forcing us to import the video into another app to yank out audio. Please see other apps on the store like speak4me how they do it and they don’t claim as synthesizers.
