I found this useful, but buggy. App would clone lines around a line that I have to edit and paste the edited line and the several adjacent lines before or after it into other places. After some major deleting and careful reading, I got a useful copy down. Other than the heavy prep, I have found this app works well. For a future update, I would love the possible playback speed from text to speech to be much faster and I would like a flagging function to indicate trouble lines. I'd like to be able to flag lines I skip or paraphrase.
I had been searching for an app that could help me learn lines for my first play before I found this one. It took a bit to fix things that didn't import perfectly but it could have been the file that I used. Did I mention you could import files? Saved so much time! This app has helped me so much, I am super glad I found it. Hint - You may need to adjust the Text-to-Speech settings on your phone. The original voice that was default on my phone was strange but I changed it to another and it made a ton of difference.
The secret to this app is in the script prep. It "reads," everything so being sure there are no stage directions, page numbers, or dashes is important. It read three dashes as being the sign for "Euro" when the script was imported so it kept saying, "Euro," in the middle of a line. It prefers . . . for pauses. If sharing between devices be sure to exchange using the format specifically generated by this app. Then you will be good to go. At times the rate of speed slows down or speeds up depending on who is talking which can be comical at times. It is helping me learn my lines, is free, and responds well to what I need. Thanks to all who created this.
Way to glitchy, can't do anything without it saying it stopped working. Wouldn't recommend. I would be trying to get the app to read my script and it would be like frozen and then it would say the app has stopped working and it did that like 8 times.
I couldn't get it to work!! So confusing!!
I love this app! Most of the free time I get to work on lines is in my car & this is perfect for reviewing over and over!
