• "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!

Ratings and Reviews
Lack of user interface optimization
When in between a note and trying to start a new note, it still takes 4 taps to start a new note.
When in the slide over view, the user interface is very bad when trying to look words on the right side of the app. Those words should appear on the bottom portion of the window.
Using iPad Pro 12.9” 2nd generation
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.
