I found this application while searching for a single purchase text reader app. The app's website, and review videos I watched, all promised high quality voices in the pro version of the app. This was not the case. The only voices available are the standard voices on your device. And as much as the customization options can be helpful, it only helps so much, and it isnt what I was looking for when I paid for this. Speech Central's website was very misleading.

This doesn't sound like the man who wished me good luck after providing him with refunding instructions for his mistake that he hasn't noticed that the information that he read on the website refers to the iOS version. I hope that that was your real face and this is the mistake that you forgot to correct.

This app is bugged on my s22 Ultra. Every time I click on settings, the voice randomly changes. Also, the voice will suddenly change throughout the reading. It's also hard to distinguish which voice to choose from as they're all basically named the same thing in a large voice list from your phone, so it's difficult to find the ones you like unless you memorize the exact spot. While I appreciate the owner's efforts, how can you not expect people to leave bad reviews if it doesn't work properly?

The voices are provided by Google's app on your phone Speech Recognition & Synthesis and they do have the worst name scheme ever, agree with that. I don't expect people to know that this Google app isn't working properly on their device and I do expect them to leave the bad review because of that. Fair enough?

This app wows me. I am Dyslexic and accessibility professional and use my phone's reading features all the time. This is the ONE that you need. It's almost perfect. There are so many features I've NEVER seen in a reading app. You can create an audio book file, export to a docx file, and it uses super-high-quality voices that even Google doesn't offer in Play Books. Reading apps on Android have always been lacking in features. I was SO happy to find a good, accessibility focused app!
