I have been using this a couple years now and I highly recommend it! I have used it to listen to web page content, pdf files, and even different audio book formats - it works great 😃👍 . I'm happy with the voices available in the free version, and the ads are small and unobtrusive at the bottom of the screen. It even remembers where you left off! If I could give it six stars I would!!!

Its pretty great for a free app. I actually am going to probably buy it, as I legit use it everyday. The ads aren't really bad, and there are a bunch of different voices to choose from. Also easy to just read normally in, which is not always the case with the read aloud apps. Occasionally a glitch happens and the text wants to vanish but it is very rare, like 2months between, and you just have to reopen the program, you don't lose your spot or anything.

Was working great until now... After using this app off and on for a few years with no issues. All of a sudden it says that the voice data is damaged and I have to delete the language "English (US)" by pressing the trash icon after selecting it from the list and re-download it, but there is no trash can icon at all. I've tried deleting the app and cache and reinstalling but nothing seems to work. Issue unresolved.

Uninstall all updates to "Speech Services by Google" app, as it got damaged on your device. Then reboot the device, update it back from Google Play to the latest version. Finally make sure you have a good WiFi connection and start speech. Google may need to download new voice data, but they do this ONLY on WiFi.
