About this app

Free & open-source with no ads or data-collection!

"Talk-to-me" will take any text and read it to you.

1. Paste the text you want the app to read.
2. Tap play/pause to control the audio.
3. Skip forward and backward.
4. Clear the text to start fresh.
5. Adjust the speed & rate of the voice.

If you paste plain-text, then "talk-to-me" will simply read it.
When pasting a link or web-address, the app will get the text from that web-page.

"Time to go to work already? I haven't finished this article! I wish I had an app that would read it for me out loud while I drive to work." I've had this thought many times, and now I've got just such an app! It works great so far. Some ideas for future development: create options for certain text to be skipped (e.g. Wikipedia footnotes like "[2]", or URLs); queuing up a list of links to be read.

πŸ’š Glad you like it! Real talk: I doubt we'll do any significant/algorithmic updates to this app. It just doesn't have many users, and we want to be strategic with our limited time. 😬 But if there's something super easy we can do, we'll do it, like our last release.

Excellent in its simplicity. Paste text, it reads it nothing else. Respect to devs doing this for the love, it's a shame this behaviour is so rare and so hidden. Google's "do no evil" is long gone, the omnipotent algorithm buries true apps like this in favour of their add riddled, purchase punching data farmers allowing Google to bank their heft cut and a copy of the data while promoting literally everything miserable. This is the opposite, and proudly so. No frills, no bs, it reads text.

I'm not exaggerating when I say this made my day. I shared it with my wife, grinning from ear to ear. My apps aren't perfect, but they all have no ads, no data collection, and no cost. The only "monetizing" I do is ask this: wanna drop some coins in my tip jar? (patreon.com/NeverAds) Truly no pressure. πŸ’š

Fair app does what it says on the can. Wish you could type directly into the app and that it worked with the multiple copies clipboard the s9 has

Thanks for giving full stars, even though it could be better. Both your ideas are damn good ones. We'll add them when we rewrite the app to work with iOS, too.

What's new

πŸ’ͺ Major:
The app is entirely rewritten. πŸŽ‰ You'll see some changes in the UI, but it functions pretty much as it did before.

πŸ’š As always:
Never Ads survives on donations alone. No ads, no data-collection, no costs. Ever.
