The 2021 Apple Design Awards winner has earned raves for boosting the accessibility features of Apple’s phones.
This intuitive app uses text-to-speech technology to read text to you, scanning directly from a document or eBook.
For £17.99, purchasing the app unlocks one premium Acapela voice and further support for 36 built-in iOS voices across 27 languages that you can also enjoy for free. In-app purchases allow you to select from more than 200 other premium voices.
In addition to support for PDF, Plain text, MS Word, MS PowerPoint, RTF, Google Docs, ePub eBooks and web articles, Voice Dream Reader also has a built-in scanner for paper document scanning.
It has native support for Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud Drive, Pocket, Instapaper and Evernote.
Simon Gardner, sales manager at Lister Unified Communications, said: “It works very well and certainly good enough to wiz your way through those piles of word documents you should have read but made every excuse not to.”
The app is also extremely useful for those with Dyslexia or sight problems.
If you need your iPhone to do the reading on your behalf, why not give Voice Dream Reader a try?
