(updated) need pro version but it's a valuable tool
They don't make it clear but you need to buy the pro version if you don't want it to read dialogue names. I have noticed with so far just one screenplay what other people said about it crashing, I suspect because of the multiple instances of dual dialogue in that particular screenplay that it couldn't process - it gets everything right except for dual dialogue - and the voices don't sound natural except for Harold as the narrator - I'm guessing his voice got the most developer attention - but even in speaking roles he too doesn't sound very natural. It's okay, though. It gets the job done. You just need to hear words read to you, firstly in a voice different from the one in your head to see how it sounds to someone unfamiliar with the material, and secondly just to get through a read-through of your or even other work faster. Without aid, just reading at my own pace, I can get bored or tired. This way I can follow along. They say the best teaching tool is to read more scripts. Well, this way you can. I'm not giving a full 5 stars because I think the voices could sound a bit more natural. I think Harold as the narrator proves that. Nonetheless it is still a very valuable tool and worth the very little that it costs.

Did you get my message about reading names in Settings? It's a part of the PRO version.
Great app and fast response
The app had a glitch when you couldn’t upload the pdf- but a few days later I noticed an update. When I reached out via the help feature - they were swift to respond and kind to answer! Have been using this app on and off for a few years now- tbh the best app for rehearsing before an audition, a scene, or shoot!
I’ve read critical reviews, but I cannot corroborate the issues. If you format a script according to industry standard, use of the app couldn’t be easier. Of course what’s at the core is the hearing sides read in different voices. That gets at composition, and that’s where the power of this app lies. If you want to write plays or screen plays, this app is a must-have compositional aid.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your feedback Moze45.
We are in the process of adding functionality to edit a line within the app. So you don't have to keep importing a script for minor changes.
Our third party voices partner has also supplied us with an updated version and new hi-res voices.
The down side will be that previously downloaded voices will need to be downloaded again :(.
