I’ve been dyslexic my whole life.

Reading that sentence takes me the same amount of time and brain energy as most people take when solving a 4 digit long division math equation in their head.

I would pretend to read in elementary school.

Through hard work (and convincing a lot teachers to give me exceptions) I got accepted to Brown University.

One problem....I couldn’t read my summer reading book - there was no audiobook for this book.

I had no other choice, I hacked an old text to speech computer system to read the remaining portion of the book over night into my iPhone and then listen to it on the plane.

Today, hundreds of thousands of people have been able to function in school and society because of Speechify.

Remember, that above all else, your mission is to be who you needed most when you were growing up.

Much love <3, Cliff Weitzman, Simeon Kostadinov and the rest of the Speechify Team.

This software saved me hours on my resume.

I love this tool. I had been spending weeks, editing and revising my resume until I destroyed it again. I found this tool, and with in two days it was done and amazing. I havea hard time reading so hearing how it sounds was incredibly helpful. Thank you so much for this affordable and amazing app. Jen Harlow

Handy Took, Though Extremely Llimited

This tool, while handy, is terrible for editing, an aspect many authors would readily use such a tool for. For example, despite reading dialogue in fiction, it won't speak ANY of the punctuation, so there's no way to distinguish the start or end of dialogue from the narrative, and its worthless when you have the typical dropped-ending quotes. Thus, aside from getting a 'feel' for the language flow, you can't identify when anyone starts or stops speaking.

As a work around, I create an extensive library of punctuation marks, where it converts each opening smart quote mark into the text "(Opening double quote)" and each em-dash as "(em-dash)", which makes an absolute mess of the text.

Adding verbal punctuation as a user-selectable option would easily earn you an extra two stars.

This is a great app. Make sure you pay for the app because it will give you the ability to use the voice you like for a prolonged period of time.

Very Good app for those of use who are audible learners.
