I have tried several voices by Acapela and SVOX. Not terrible but simply DO NOT measure up to Ivona! Seems that by now these developers should be able to get this right. Voices here are somewhat 'tinny' and include a slight 'stutter'. There is a seemingly intangible 'charm' to the IVONA Amy delivery that makes all the difference. Inject some artistry and some imagination into your development efforts and you will begin to turn a very important corner in this technology.
Have to agree with others who say this isn't up to much. The app itself is flakes on my android 7.1 (too many issues to list) and the inability to test anything other than 300 characters of streamed (i.e. not downloaded, so not the same as what you are buying) makes it impossible to get a real feel for it, or whether it will play nicely with you the apps you want to use it with. Why not at least include one free voice so people can properly test it. I ended up paying to download a voice and was seriously underwhelmed. Maybe it is marginally better than the TTS voices you get for free, but it has a LOT of artifacts so listening for any period of time won't be good. I wouldn't recommend it. I feel like I've wasted my money.
I tried several of the voices, and actually found a few I liked. Only, when I went to try and use one; it was then, that I descovered, this in app purchase; Kent every app within! I need help, for the better quality voice/ voices; but I do not have the money to purchase anything! It would have really been, a huge time saver if this would have been made known, in their introduction! Normally, in purchase apps, at the very least; allow/given one utility program with this/their app installation! For this reason, I am only marking my review, as a like! Thanks
I bought one of the voices but they are not working... I got so mad and want me money back if it's the apps fault
The worst technical support. The only answer it they know is we cannot recreate this problem. Since I upgraded to Android Oreo the app kept crashing and keeps crashing until now at least 10 times in a row Every Time it tries to switch from one language to the other it's a nightmare and I've been contacting them for a month or so they tell me will get back to you and they never did if it was a free app it would be alright but we have paid for these voices. Worst people I have ever dealt with the app was great before but now it's an epic failure
I just "purchased" the app, but can't even give a review because it constantly crashes before I can have an opinion about it, I really hope this can be fixed...
