Not good for ALS I have ALS and like most it affects my hands. The dialogue window does not resize when typing so the keyboard covers the talk button and other controls making me constantly open and close the keyboard making far too hard to use with my bad hands. So far i think Type and Speak is best Android app for ALS.
Do not pay for this crap app Purchased this to have it read PDFs while I drive. Did not function as expected. Added a lot of unnecessary words such as " double space" and it couldn't read more than a page without x. Waste of 2 bucks.
Doesn't work Nexus 5 Sorry guys. Worked relatively well despite lag on my SGS3. But on Nexus5 doesn't work at all. Tried uninstall reinstall, clear data, different voice synthesiser, nothing.
Does not do as advertised My husband is completely blind, he was unable to use this app. It did not read a web page, it did not read a text. I'm sorry but this is no good for him. We will have to keep an ear out for something that can truly work for him. My phone is a droid x
waist! this is ok for a few words/ sentences. but 80% of the times where I'm trying to play a bigger files., like scripts etc. it doesn't work! so I waisted My money worth this app I feel!
not product-quality Looked for an app to read pdf ebooks out loud while I drive. The boastful claims of the developers, at least for this feature, are quickly disintegrated once you try to use this app. Repeated browsing for a pdf file is a pain. There is no way to save your location in the pdf file, so if you're reading a long book in segments, you have to painfully browse to the file each time, then manually page through the file using the non-friendly interface, to find the location where you stopped last time. The whole process is user-interface torture. Furthermore, the app translates pdf to text then reads it out loud, but pdf contains all kinds of text markings that should not be read out (like carriage return, html-like markings). After 10 minutes I want my money back. The technology may be promising but the current implementation is not product-quality. 1 star.
