Text-to-Speech App – Voice Dream Reader for iOS

 

if you serve students who have reading disabilities or who just prefer to listen to text,  the Apple Voice Dream Reader App is worth suggesting.  The app costs $4.99 in the App Store and is available for the IPhone, IPad and Tablet.  Click here to download the app.

Voice Dream Reader can extract text from ePub, PDF, Word, Pages, Keynote and web pages and then read them aloud using text-to-speech with synchronized highlighting.  Voice Dream Reader comes pre-loaded with the Heather voice, but additional voices can be purchased for $0.99. One downside is that all text formatting and all images are extracted and not visible.
