• High-Quality Voices
5 high-quality Nuance Vocalizer voices are included in this edition:
◆ Tom - English (USA)
◆ Samantha - English (USA)
◆ Nicolas - French (Canada)
◆ Juan - Spanish (Mexico)
◆ Paulina - Spanish (Mexico)
The voice can be made to speak faster or slower as suits the user. The voices are installed within ClaroSpeak, so they work when not online and do not use up any expensive data allowance.
Additional voices in 30+ languages and even more accents are available through in-app purchase in ClaroSpeak.
• Capture text from photo (in-app purchase)
This feature lets you select a photo from your library or take a new one with your camera. Your chosen image will be scanned for text, using high-quality OCR (powered by ABBYY), and the text on the image will be inserted into ClaroSpeak.
• Word Prediction
Word prediction helps with writing more quickly and accurately. Train dictionaries from the current text so the best suggestions come up first.
• Visual Highlighting
Text is highlighted as the text is read back. Highlighting allows users to coordinate reading and listening. ClaroSpeak lets users pick the color and style of highlighting required.
There are four highlighting modes to choose from: None, Word by Word highlighting, Word Trail highlighting or Sentence highlighting.
• Font and Color
Change the font size, color or use a more-readable font to maximize ease-of-reading, making ClaroSpeak easily adaptable to different users' needs.
• Save to Audio
Convert any text into an audio file with any of the high-quality voices. This is quick and easy, allowing text to be listened to on the move. Great for proofreading on the go.
• Send Text
Text created within ClaroSpeak can be emailed, sent via SMS, or copied and pasted into another app, like Safari – great to help ensure everything is right. The Apple spellcheck works in ClaroSpeak too, further helping accuracy. Sending to Facebook and Twitter lets you join in with social media.
• Dropbox and Google Drive Integration
Open documents stored in Dropbox or Google Drive directly in ClaroSpeak. Save text and audio files directly back to Dropbox or Google Drive. Great for transferring files between devices and keeping files in the cloud.
• Language Learning
ClaroSpeak can assist with second language learning and vocalisation. iOS system voices can be used so users can hear text in a foreign language spoken aloud and listen back to their own text as it is typed – great for learning how to pronounce the text correctly. In-app purchases are available to allow users to buy more voices.
