Voice Dream Reader Lite - Text to Speech
Try out Voice Dream Reader, the highest rated text-to-speech app in the App Store. The lite version of Voice Dream Reader reads approximately 300 characters at a time, which means it stops reading after a few sentences, and you'll have to press Play again. Otherwise, it does everything the paid version can. In addition, you can download any of our voices for free to test them out.
Listen to PDF and Word documents, eBooks, articles, and Web pages anywhere with offline text-to-speech. Built-in integration with Dropbox, Bookshare, Pocket, Instapaper, and Gutenberg makes it easy to import read material. Sophisticated controls, silky-smooth synchronized word highlighting and autoscrolling puts you in charge of the listening experience. 60 amazing, life-like voices in 20 languages available. This app is fully accessible with VoiceOver.
Customers who have tried many text-to-speech apps say this: Voice Dream Reader is the best mobile TTS, period. And we still constantly add new features and improve usability. We're committed to the goal that you will never need to buy another TTS app.
