Voice Pack adds two of the best US English voices, Sharon and James, to Voice Dream Reader and Voice Dream Writer at 25% discount.
We created this app primarily for schools that use Apple's Volume Purchase Program (VPP). Many school want more voices but can't buy them now, because Apple currently does not support In-App Purchases for VPP customers.
After downloading this app, run it and you'll be prompted to download the two voices. When download is complete, restart Voice Dream Reader and Writer, and these voices will be available. Make sure you have updated Reader and Writer to the latest release.
This app also does something useful. It contains a text box which you can paste any text into. And you can tap on any word, the app will speak that word. It is useful to beginning readers to improve their phonetic skills.
- Fixed NeoSpeech license issue.
Ratings and Reviews
An easy purchase
If you got this as part of a Voice Dream suite - congratulations. It was worth it. The cost of this app was essentially free, AND you got Voice Dream and Writer for free. This app’s main purpose is to provide access to two voices in the other two apps (they’re normally $5 a piece).
If you bought it as a separate/unique purchase, you can still use this app as a standalone text reader. You copy and paste in text to have it read in American English. However, know that it’s not the sole purpose or intent of this app and you’ll probably be confused or disappointed with the app.
Hope all that makes sense.
Sharon is not for my ears, but James is excellent voice!
I wish Apple will allow to use third party TTS voices everywhere in the system.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
