    I got my tooth extracted so now I can’t talk and I was looking for something to talk with I saw this and downloaded it I went on it AND THE FIRST THING I SEE IS A TRIAL and I declined it I was so excited but once I went to voices ONLY TWO ARE FREE AND IM A MALE so if you are on a budget and lose your voice or can’t talk I do not recommend this.

    I cannot find the disable button in order to not be charged the fee(which is secretly hidden in the initial start up of the application). Has anyone had success contacting the app developer? I cannot find the unsubscribe button nor contact information.
  • Hey it for Obama

    The title sounds crazy, but there is an obama voice in the app. Get it for that voice, and the humor and laughs you can get out of it. Other than that it's bland. But that voice is great.
  • I don’t recommend buying.

    It’s only female voices and to purchase a male voice 15 dollars???? WHATTt!!??? Very bad, don’t buy it only they ask for trial and to buy other voices while there is free online voices!
  • Found the solution!

    Newest Edit: Figured it out! When you open the app and it takes you to the free trial/ purchase option screen- look at the top left corner- There will be an option to continue with the limited version. This way you will at least have access to use the app- though you don’t have all of the fancy options and voices. To the developer- Thank You for keeping this option open! It seems hard for people to find- but it means a lot none the less that it is still there! I’ve been using this app for years- and it has been a wonderful experience. It worked out great for me because the voice I particularly use was free- and if I needed a different voice then I could choose to buy them. App just updated- gives you a three day free trial and then charges you $9.99 a week!!! 🤬 I am going to miss this app- but at the end of my three days I will probably never use it again if it stays this way. I am happy to change my review if it ever gets fixed. Hopefully the developer is listening! Edit: After consideration (even though it is still a gouge) I would pay a one time $10 price for this app. Maybe the developer should consider that instead?
  • Very Useful

    I got this app to help me study. I find it much easier to follow my notes when I can listen to them. Its really simple and easy to use. Just copy everything and paste it in then hit play. The voices it comes with are pretty good. I don't have a problem understanding what they are saying. But one time I accidentally picked the wrong language. I honestly had no idea what I was listening to for a few seconds. Overal this is a pretty useful app. I would recommend it. UPDATE: Some of my previous messages were lost after the update, but I was a add them back. Just make sure you remember what you had if you listen to your recording frequently.
  • Didn’t work

    I bought a voice then the app stopped working and would never play what I text. I reinstalled the app and now have lost the voice I purchased. Never even got to use the app. Waste of money
  • Pay again for export feature?

    I purchased full previous version but now after this “upgrade” that really didn’t bring any significant changes other than ios12 compatibility I’m unable to export and asked to pay$29.99 for the feature I already had before?

    I love the app, I injured my vocal chords 3 months ago and still not able to talk. This app has helped a lot. The problem I have is that We get US and UK female free but have to pay $14 for a male voice. Can’t you give them free?
  • Typical bait and switch

    By Big L Hou
    Free to download for 3 days then you’re billed weekly for the use. I thought Apple Apps was doing away with this type of ploy. It should let you know upfront that it is NOT FREE !!!!
  • Scam

    By Karnpt
    Free to try but you'll be automatically enrolled in a $10 a week subscription that they then hide how to cancel it. Terrible
  • Help Pls

    By helpitoopoorforthis
    I just downloaded this app and accidentally confirmed to pay $9.99 a week a think (really sneaky of them as I was not expecting this so I pressed buttons too quickly!). It says that I can cancel my subscription in “settings,” but I can’t find “settings.” Someone pls help me cancel this, I don’t want to pay $40 per month that is ridiculous.

  • Spanish are poor

    By DJ KINGDOM DECIPLE
    On the text to speak app here the cost is too high for the poor information on translation of English to Spanish, it sounds the came for instance the word “what” in English is what but sounds the same in Spanish or almost the same to be clear “que-pasa” in Spanish should be “what” in English disappointed on this text-to-speak app I bought and the translation is separate; it’s not informative don’t buy this app

    This is the best reader I’ve ever installed on my phone. The voice is very clear and saves my time when I’m preparing to go to school. Now I can easily read my PDF documents or web page contents. It is fluent, with no lags. Overall, I find it simple and clean with a clear voice. If you are a student with lots of course materials to read, this app comes highly recommended. My only challenge is for the developers to keep making it better!! Keep me updated on any new developments. It's my new favorite app.
  • It works great!

    I am a trucker and whenever I want to read the news, the Bible or interesting stuff on the web, this app does it for me. I recently installed it on my son's phone to help him learn how to pronounce words correctly. All I can say is that my boy reads better than most kids his age. The app pronounces words like a real human and can even read out loud the caller ID. I am grateful to the developers for this intelligent app and I can't wait for new updates. I use it daily with no regrets. After trying several readers from the store, this is the only app that doesn’t crash or freeze. It is a great reading tool, especially, when I feel tired. Thank you!
  • A very useful app

    By Kathleen M. Chapel
    Recently, I broke my jaw and couldn't speak for weeks. My fiancé found this app for me and it made communication way easier. By simply typing, I can speak without actually �speaking.’ I love that developers incorporated many languages and now I can learn how to pronounce certain words in different languages. It is basic but very efficient. I noticed slight glitches here and there but so far so good. I regret not knowing about this app sooner! I have been using it for a few months now, and I can say I can’t live without it. Unlike other apps, it actually delivers on its promises. You simply copy & paste text and the app converts it into speech. What's more, it gets better with each update. Kudos to the developers.
  • Maybe a one time fee

  • The best text to speech app hands down!

    5
    By Chasity D. Sills
    I receive a lot of emails and thanks to this app, I’m able to read all the of them by the time I get to work. It saves me a lot of time since I can drive while listening through my car’s speakers. I am very pleased especially with the feature to save audio file for later reading. It also works well even with lengthy texts. The app reads almost anything. There are many options and settings you can use to customize what works best for you. While I haven’t used other text to speech apps, a friend recommended it to me and I immediately fell in love with it. Could do better with a pause button (or maybe I haven’t found it yet). I love its easy-to-use interface. And yes, it supports my language (Russian)!

    I got this app to read text for something I’m studying, problem is, I have to start a free trial when I don’t want to, if you do not want to start a new trial I recommend not getting this app. It’s mostly saying you can get the app for free but to use it you must pay. Very disappointing.
  • Very good, but...

    I use this app to memorize my speaking parts in my Masonic Youth Organization. It was always very good for that, since I’m an auditory and visual learner. I can read over the part while listening to someone speak to it, and I can recite it along with the speaker. The best part was I could save the audio so I could listen to it again as many times as I wanted. Overall a very good app, it had all the tools I needed in the free version. However, I reduced one star since after the most recent update all of my saved audio was gone. I was upset, because I spent a lot of time typing those speaking parts. I guess it wouldn’t hurt to type them again since it would help me remember, but I’d rather not have do that since it took so much time to type them. Other than that this app is perfect for this purpose. I recommend it. I just hope this doesn’t happen again.

  • Awesome voices

    This app is awesome. I’m not the best at speaking, so I love how I can use this app to write down my thoughts and speak it out to people with different voices!
  • Solid app, great voices

    I find this app super helpful. The voices are really high quality and easy to listen to. I use it everyday!

    I just found out that this charged me. There is no clear infication that this is a paid service. The app store should get rid of app like these that steal money from people 😡😡😡
  • Doesn’t handle smart quotes well

    By Cybernettr
    If you paste in text that has “smart” apostrophes it pauses annoyingly, as if it’s a period instead. Also, as others have pointed out, doesn’t accept much pasted text.

    I just purchased a voice from your database and it does not work. I paid $4.99 for it. I would like to be refunded. “The Obama voice”
  • HATE THIS APP

    THIS STUPID APP MADE ME WASTE $4 on a voice just because the notification popped up as soon as I clicked home ...0 stars DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!!!!!
  • Beware

    1
    By Kimberly 525
    The app itself is very straightforward but if you are using this app take extra precautions before clicking anything because the app will prompt you to purchase new voices and languages every time you open it and I learned this when I clicked the home button after opening the app on accident and it pulled up a new voice to purchase for $4.99 and it immediately paid with Touch ID no questions asked.
  • Paid User of an App That Won’t Load

    By JP Markle
    So, after paying for the full registered version, the app will not even load now. Not a happy customer. Update: It’s now December 6, and I still have a paid for app that will not load. I have to suggest that everyone avoid this app. Update: Now December 18, and the supposed fix does nothing, so it’s time to try and get a refund.
  • Disappointing - liars, not best, keep looking there is better

    By dspiry
    I paid for this, may be free now, don’t waste time, first time something frustrates me this much, this is junk. I hate thinking how many people think this is good when theres better. I bought the pro version and it has ads. It seems every time I open the app I get sent to App Store asking me to buy an app I don't want. I bought this thinking i would paste long text and let it read to me. I really liked the sound of the voices on this app and that is why I bought it. However the app doesn't allow long text. It's has become useless to me. Wish I could get my money back. Apple voice over has no problem reading long. I just hate the robotics voice.
  • This is the worst app in the whole universe

    This app has so many issues and also it comes with a horrible voice that the application uses
  • I just use it for fun

    I don't use it to talk or anything I like to mess around with it. Please update the accents, some are hard to understand ( I accidentally bought all the voices) other than that, it's fun.
  • Stupid!!! Don't Waste Your Time!!!

    By Jakeflashman
    Doesn't do anything. No menus. No way to open a file. Plus every time I closed the one menu option it does have, it tries to get me to buy a voice. If zero stars was an option this app would get it.

  • It needs work!

    By T1doyou
    I was sincerely disappointed by this program. Even though it does do a fairly decent job of changing text to voice, it has a very limited amount of capability to convert large passages. The paid version may be better. However, there are many more free apps available in the marketplace that outperform this one!
  • Very useful, I love it

    I use this app daily to read affirmations to me. Pleasant, soothing voice. Wish I had discovered this sooner.
  • How can I get my money back?

    1
    By Miami Geek
    I kind of 'bought' it without really wanting to do it. I was really the impression it was a free (limited features) and then you pay it later for a full version. No, it didn't work this way. But I would be happy paying for a great App. Bottom line: it is really not worth a penny. I wouldn't have it for free.
  • Waste

    1
    By Agar.io queen
    I bought Obama and I was able to use it three times and then it would not allow me to use it again. I have tried many things but nothing seems to work. Waste of money. Just like a lot of other reviews you can accidentally buy voices you did not intend to get, so be careful.
  • Did it get you too? Lol

    By Vertigo RT
    PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE PROMPTS But, let's face it. The reason you're reading this is because you didn't either, lol If you don't pay close attention, yea, you'll shell out $3.99 for a voice you don't need or want. Still, I'm giving it two stars, because it was a pretty clever move and it's not worth the trouble of getting my sub $5 mistake back...
  • Get ready to lose money

    1
    By sitiak
    As pointed out by others, you have to be VERY careful when using this app, because you'll receive a pop up every time you use it that prompts you to buy new voices for $3.99 a piece. I have deleted this "free" app and will never use it again because it made me buy an additional English voice I had no intention of getting. Also, the character limit for pasted text is extremely short, in comparison to some (free!) web-based text to speech tools I've seen.
  • Pointless and Annoying App

    1
    By mikereldred
    If the App allowed you to paste text, it might be useful. Instead, it will only accept what you type. Additionally, as someone else noted, it prompts you by default to buy a language when you open the app, and if you are not careful, you will make a purchase you did not want.
