Too busy to read articles from your favorite websites? Sit back, relax, and listen up as news from any website is magically read back at you with adjustable speeds and multiple accents.
How it works? Just link any article in Speaky. It will extract the main content, detect the language and read it out loud to you. You can retrieve content from your favorite websites or from the cloud.
"Articles in your Speaky queue play without an internet connection, so you can breeze through a New Yorker treatise as you ride the subway or catch up on world news on your next international flight." - New York Magazine
"Speaky is a handy tool that helps you multitask by listening instead of reading. Whether it’s an entertaining article on the Web or an important PDF for work, you can give your eyes a rest or just get more done with this intuitive voice reader." - AppAdvice
"The Pocket integration really makes it a lot easier to catch up on those articles you put off on reading." - Lifehacker
This update includes the following changes:
- Fixed an issue where text extraction would not work when local extraction is disabled
- Fixed an issue where home screen quick actions would not start audio playback
- Fixed an issue where settings would not save properly on iPads running iOS 13
- Fixed an issue where the HUD would not display properly on iOS 13
- Fixed an issue where extensions would not show the correct translation
In order to support new features, this update requires iOS 10 and Speaky will soon require iOS 11. I received a lot of feedback asking for new features and support of new technologies, so this is a required step to not have to maintain too many versions.
As always, Speaky never prompts you for a review because I don't want to interrupt you. I know that if you’re enjoying Speaky, you will take a minute to leave a review. They’re greatly appreciated and the 5 stars are really helpful. Don't forget that you can also leave a tip in the Tip Jar of the app, if you're feeling generous. Thank you for your support!

Where has this app been all my life? I am a busy professional and often find myself in the car waiting for the next red light so I can read the article that i found on the web but haven't had time to finish reading yet. Speaky reads the article aloud for me while I am driving. I love it!
Only con is that speaky reads right through periods with almost no pause. It pauses at commas the way I want it to pause at periods. The pause at commas could be about 2/3 as long as it is. Wish Speaky would pause at periods - or even let me dial in how long to pause at different types of punctuation.
Over all a great productivity tool - well worth the $3.99 I spent on it.
Issue with article titles!
***Update*** Please fix the compatibility issues with article titles. When trying to use the “read all entries” feature, an endless string of html appears and the app crashes. I’m not sure if it is an issue solely with the websites I’m using or if it’s something you can fix on your end. I would really like to be able to listen to multiple articles at once again. Thanks!
Speaky had been one of my favorite apps! I’m constantly driving and this app allows me to catch up on my article reading while on the road. I’ve noticed more instances of compatibility issues with webpages and the app crashes often without rhyme or reason. Please release an update soon fixing these issues! I would give it 5 stars if I could!
Best TTS App
There are other similar apps out there and I have tried pretty much all of them, but I keep coming back to this one. It is easy to use and super reliable. It lets you choose almost all the voices currently installed on iOS. You can add more from iOS’s Settings.
This app is perfect for commuters and language learners, or anyone who wants to listen to an article rather than reading it. It works offline once an article is loaded and saved. It even works in the background as well as when the screen is turned off, so you can do other things while listening to an article.
