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 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! ❤️

Amazing! Thank you very much! -Cliff
I give this app a try to read me Microsoft word documents and possibly to replace my web page reader. First I tried using connect to desktop method to transfer docx files to app. Every time I tried to open one the app crashed. Then I transferred using the OneDrive method. The file opens put possibly 1 word in 10 was missing a letter that was present in original doc changing how word was read. Needless to say I didn’t listen to the gibberish for long. Then I tried it for a fan fiction book on a web site. This was complicated because app does not have any web browsing ability. 1st I had to bring it up in Safari then share it with app. The app actually did a better job reading it then my current were page reader app. But then I reached the end of the short chapter and could not just click on the button for the next page. To read next page requires you to go back to Safari go to next page then share again go to app find new shared doc and open. I mainly use my web page reader while driving for my truck driving job. The complexity involved in just getting to the next page. Would prove to be an unsafe distraction if I was driving while trying to use this app to read web pages. So with the trouble I had trying to get this app to properly load Word docs and the complexity involved in reading web pages I can not recommend this app especially with its high subscription price.

Thanks for your feedback! The premium voices actually cost a lot to make (we sell them at a cost). You can use the non-HD voices for free but making the HD voices has a lot of server costs. The annual subscription of $140 comes to $11.66/mo which is actually really cheap ($2.7/wk) - that’s less than the price of a textbook, less than one coffee a week.
