Lifesaver App

I recently discovered speechify. I’m a 2nd year law school student who also works full-time.
Before law school I loved listening to audiobooks fiction and non-fiction). So I quickly grew adept at keeping my hands busy while working on chores etc. That’s how I developed my auditory learning skills.
Because of obvious time limitations, when I stared law school, I needed to find a way of staying engaged while reading law textbooks that argue the fine points of countless legal theories illustrated by countless legal case studies. Needless to say, I had been falling behind. Now that I’ve discovered speechify, not only was I able to catch up, today I keep up with the assigned reading, but my retention levels have skyrocketed. I read along while listening. This allows me to pause and “engage” with the content of the text and pick up the reading /listening form wherever I want while having gained the ability to remain “fresh” in my thinking. It’s like having the professor read the book to me word for word. I can now seat and read/listen for hours without feeling the time pass all the while accumulating knowledge. If I find that i did understand a topic as well as I thought, I can quickly select the spot and relisten to it to clear up points of confusion.
This app is a lifesaver for me. Keep up the features coming.

I’m loving it!

I always read really slow compared to others and I always tend to read better with someone/something reading it out loud. On this app though I can just easily take a picture of my book pages and it loads within a minute which is really fast and amazing and I just listen to it. It does mess up on some of the words which is understandable that’s why I’m glad I can just edit the text from what ever it messes up. I love how you can just add folders because I’m separating my book by chapters because that’s easier and to make it a whole lot easier I just add it in a folder with the book title as the folder name. It’s easy to add series also because I can add folders within a folder and I find that absolutely amazing. I’m glad I found this app so I can actually read better and read more of what I love! I already been suggesting this app to a lot of people and I only got it yesterday. I love this app already! I’ve been listening to my book all day while doing some work without buying things like some ebook apps even though they're some things you can buy like translation and voices which I might actually buy soon!

❤️❤️❤️Thank you so much! You’re such a life saver! I’m glad this app exists!❤️❤️❤️

Minor Dyslexic

I love this! I have always thought I have been a bit dyslexic... I can read but I read slower and mess up some words sometimes. I told my parents that I think I have a small case of dyslexia but they always said no. They always said you just need to practice reading more. They were right. Kind of! If I work really hard at it and am in a quiet place with no distractions, I can read a book. I’m not fast. I’m not sure I comprehend everything I should but I can read. I never liked reading until I got into high school. That is when I finished my first chapter book with out anyone reading to me. My dad would always read to me for my “lit circles” or text book assignments. I love him for that! He is one of the reasons I graduated at the top 10 of my class in high school and first two years of college! He never gave up on me and he was always there to help me no matter what I needed help with! He is my hero! Mom too! She was not very good at reading either but she did better at math. I am now attending my 3rd year of college online to become a teacher and I love to read. Speechify will just speed things up for me a bit is all!

Thank you! ❤️
