Voice Dream Writer helps everyone write better: Text-to-speech proofreading reduces mistakes, phonetic and meaning search help you use the right words, and an active outline helps you organize and improve the structure of your writing.

• Featured in the US App Store Education Collection.

• "Voice Dream Writer's technically designed for people with reading disabilities, but it's useful for just about anyone who needs a little help proofing." - Lifehacker

Text-To-Speech Proofreading. Professional proofreaders recommend reading out loud as the best way to catch mistakes. Like a personal proofreader, Voice Dream Writer reads your writing using text-to-speech, so you can easily spot awkward sentences, grammatical errors and typos. Also, it can read words and sentences as you type or voice dictate. This way, you can type faster because you no longer have to look up to check the text you just wrote.

Word Finder. Voice Dream Writer helps you find the right words using phonetic search and meaning search. For example, search for "inuf" phonetically, and you will find "enough", and search for "Fast Africa Cat" by meaning and you will find "Cheetah." Word Finder also shows you the dictionary definition of a word as you type without you having to select anything or open another program.

Outline. As you write, Voice Dream Writer automatically creates an outline of headings, paragraphs and sentences. The Outline helps you structure your document better by giving you an always-on overview. You can also quickly navigate to a section in a long document without endless scrolling. Finally, you can drag and drop elements in the Outline to organize your writing. No more selecting, cutting and pasting large blocks of text.

Besides these unique features, Voice Dream Writer also comes with everything you would expect from any great writing tool:

• Comprehensive settings for text appearance
• Uncluttered writing area
• Search for text
• Search for misspelled words
• Word count
• Synchronize and backup with iCloud
• Import and export for Dropbox, Google Drive, and Box
• Preview and print with multiple themes
• Markdown support for formatting
• Export to Microsoft Word format (compatible with Apple Pages)
• Support for Bluetooth keyboard

The app is not only fully accessible, it was designed with students and adults with print disabilities in mind. There are special tools for VoiceOver users to manage the cursor, select text, and find and correct misspelled words by stepping through them. Voice-based Proofreading and Phonetic Search are invaluable for people with dyslexia. Also included is the research-proven Dyslexie font.

Voice Dream Writer will continue to evolve. We would love to hear from you!

Unique and Helpful App for Writers

This writing app is helpful in ways that don’t compare with any other app I’ve found. On the ipad, you have a centered,uncluttered writing space. To each side are panels that are pulled into view. The left panel automatically produces an outline of whatever you are writing composed of each heading and paragraph. You can reorder and delete each item. The left panel reveals an on-going definition, homonym, and synonym of each word you type. As you type, each word is spoken back to you as well as entire sentence. Why is all this so fantastic? Because it gives you a perspective on your own writing beyond that of your own subjectivity in the moment. Do you know the difference between sensing how you look, and viewing a photo of how you look? There’s a difference, right? This app is the only app that provides this difference while you are in the process of writing. You might think it gets in the way of writing, but I’ve found that it improves my insight into what I’m really trying to say. Compared to the countless writing apps available, this writing app stands apart in a very good way.

As a Ph.D. student, professor, and author, I have found the Voice Dream Writer app to be an incredible, user-friendly resource. The built-in Thesaurus is, by far, one of the best of its kind. Since the first iPad release, I’ve been using Voice Dream’s reading app, some ten years now. This equates to roughly 950+ PDF eBooks (and a few ePub) read (while listening).

This study and reading method has provided me close to 100% recall of each book I’ve imported into Voice Dream. All through grammar school and high school, I struggled with reading and composition. If I only had the Voice Dream Reader and Writer during these years, my grades would have been far different, and I may not have been “grounded” quite as much.

As a suggestion, if this app also had some basic word processing features, it would replace Microsoft Word for 90% of my writing projects.

First impressions, this app is awesome!

i’ve been using Voice Dream Writer for approximately twenty four hours now. It’s been awesome. I am gaining more confidence while typing. The app further underlines how much of a scam braille note takers like the BrailleNote touch + are. This appp has everything from smart navigation, keyboard shortcuts, and even a word finder. The word finder in particular is, i think, astounding. i haven’t found anything so usefull in any other app i tried. . Therre are some features i wish they had though. For example, i wish there was an option for the program to read the letters i type instead of the word. Also the formatting options are proving difficult. The heading option took me about nine tries to master. Other than that i think this app is fantastic value for money.
