Speechify is a text to speech utility for Android mobile devices. This app reads aloud any text document you import or enter.
This application allows users to listen to any text they want. It was designed to help people with reading disabilities like dyslexia, ADHD, or low visual acuity. But Speechify can still be useful for anyone. It allows you to learn or entertain yourself while attending to another business, for example, running or cleaning.
The app supports different ways to enter the text. Besides copying and pasting, it is possible to read websites, get ebooks from online libraries or import PDF files. You can also scan physical documents using a camera on your device. The conversion of a short text is almost instant, but a full book may take some time.
There are also additional options and features. For example, it is possible to set up the reading speed or change the voice of the narrator. More than fifty languages are supported by this tool. Speechify is available for several platforms, and users may synchronize their libraries between them.
Since the app is still in beta, not everything works smoothly. But as for now, it is free to use and does not require an active subscription.
If you want to listen to podcasts and audiobooks read by professionals, you can check the library of Audible.
