Text Parrot is your personal reading assistant - it can help you proofread, think or voice your ideas out loud.

What does Text Parrot do? Well - it’s plain and simple... it reads back whatever text or document file ( TXT/RTF/RTFD/EPUB/HTML/WebArchive) you have given it. Just open a document and tap play button to read it, or select what you want it to read and tap "Speak Selection" - within seconds, Text Parrot will be reading exactly what you have selected - it’s really that simple.

1 Text Parrot can ‘speak’ in more than 30 languages, switching automatically between each one or setting your language. You can also change the speed(0.5X-2.0X) for speaking.

2 Text Parrot can help you stay productive by reading documents in the background, whilst you compose an email in the foreground - that’s the magic of Speak.

3 Text Parrot is so much more than just your reading assistant - you can also compose a document ( txt/rtf/rtfd ), from within the app, as easy as having it read to you.

4 Save your document as a .txt, .rtf or .html file with a touch and change text properties , Convert your document to PDF or Image - it’s even easier than 1-2-3. There is so much more to Speak, but we simply don’t have the time to say it all.

5 With a built-in file browser, you can not only find documents, but other files too. Rename, move, copy, email or delete files within seconds. Compressing and unzipping files is easier than ever.

6 Share files through WiFi, iTunes and then sort them all, by size, name, file type or age - Text Parrot truly is the do-it-all app.

7. Dropbox syncing support.

Text Parrot - speaking your documents, creating your documents, managing your documents - the modern way.

Very functional in a multi-task dependent world

I'm grateful for this app. It allows me to "read and re-read" lecture notes, e-texts, and copies of websites for continuing education lessons, while driving. All I have to do is create; copy and paste; and press play. I can listen during my commute.

The only negative I've found so far is that the medical journals and biology education materials often have temporary changes in the voice/accent of the "speaker". It changes to a French- or Indian- accent and enunciation and is inconsistent for repetitions of the same word (i.e. benzodiazepines).

It works great.

The reading is clear and precise. It works great for ePub text to speech. You can download documents from Dropbox and listen to them as you drive, eat, excersise or whatever you do that keeps your eyes focused elsewhere.

The only fault it has so far is that it does not keep a bookmark and looses its place if you get a call or have to put it up for later. On long contracts and legal papers it can be frustrating having to fing you place over and over again.
