Instantly reads out loud any text with natural sounding voices
A Web app that works great both on Chrome and Safari. No need to download or install. No annoying login either. Simply paste the text and click "play".
TTSReader remembers the article and last position when paused, even if you close the browser. This way, you can come back to listening right where you previously left.
Works on Chrome for mobile too. Ideal for listening to articles while driving, travelling, exercising, working and more.
Podcast Written Texts
While working, or driving, listen to interesting articles and books
TTSReader is really helpful for busy people who want to be able to listen to written content while doing something else.
For instance - you can listen to whole Wikipedia articles (just copy-paste them to here), or to some documents you need to study for work or personal education.
Watch this YouTube to see how it reads Dr. Seuss' "the cat in the hat". You'll be surprised.
Saves you tons of mobile data traffic and charges
Regular podcast apps consume a ton of data, as long audio files are also large in size. Contrary to that, TTSReader uses text to speech engines, which are built in your mobile system. This way, you can listen to hours of textual podcasts with close to zero data consumption. This makes this software ideal for drivers and really everyone who wants to listen to interesting material on the go.
Educational & Occupational for Kids
Kids love hearing good stories, and it's also great for their development. Nothing can come close to mommy or daddy reading the bed time story. But, with TTSReader you can now let them listen to additional stories on top of those that mommy & daddy read them. Try it, our feedback is that kids love it!
Aid for people with difficulties in reading
People with difficulties in reading (regular or temporal), but don't want to compromise self-developing utilize TTSReader as their helper.
Narrating & dubbing movies, presentations & more
Simply type the text you need narrated in the required language (you can translate it first via Google-Translate) - click the Play button - and record the output speech.
You've just created your professional - sounding audio file in any language.
