Must have app
Added this app to my top 10 list of must have. Share any text to have it read to you. Very useful. Nice fix too.Chrissy - June 17, 2012
Does not do as advertised
My husband is completely blind, he was unable to use this app. It did not read a web page, it did not read a text. I'm sorry but this is no good for him. We will have to keep an ear out for something that can truly work for him. My phone is a droid xpenny - October 9, 2012
Does not work in the one pdf I tried, argument exception. I did have fun translating text to different languages and back again with the kids.Kensean - June 13, 2012
Not good for me
Failed to load all .doc's I threw at it, which is what I got it for. I'm sure it's good at other things, but look for something else if you're looking to read documents aloud.David - September 21, 2012
I'm learning to speak Spanish, and I have Mexican Maria read web pages to me while I'm driving. The adjustable speed is very useful. Most useful App I've bought recently. Samsung Galaxy Ace II and Google Nexus 7Dr. Piranha - September 9, 2012

Great Utility. Overall this is a wonderful tool to have and use. I bought it at the same time I downloaded SVOX, and I bought one SVOX's premium voice packs as well. So all of that in combination, really makes this app a joy to use. You don't of course have to install all of the extra things I did to you use this app. They just complemented it well and suited my needs. I find it very fun to type in ridiculous things and have them spoken back to me, especially with the SVOX Dark Lord voice, just hilarious! And the ability to save what you type, in wave format, well it's really what puts the icing on the cake for this application. I have noticed at times, though, at least on my tablet. That the app starts to not function properly and the little enter/play button just does not work at all, it gets stuck. Actually, even on my phone, the only way too get the app to play. Is to hit the Return key on my phone's keyboard. So besides that issue, I'm cry satisfied with this app. A feature request for me, though, would to be able to choose the bit and khz for the exported .wav file.Trapzilla - October 23, 2012
Useful but lacking...
I will be rendered mute for a week or so by invasive corrective surgery. It looks like it will be useful for communicating under those circumstances, but lacks many simple features that could vastly improve usability. It desperately needs resizeable/rearrangeable buttons on the soundboard. Adding/removing categories would also help. Most of the negative comments that I see are apparently from people with reading comprehension difficulties unable to understand the purpose of this app.Mike - October 1, 2012
Does not work at all on jellybean on prime 4.1.1Jose - August 2, 2012
This app is awesome! Saves me a lot of time by loading on my pdf reports and listening to them while I'm driving.great work!Brian-in-Eugene - September 8, 2012
Buy this, then you have to buy the voice you want and can get hung up
Paid for this, didn't use good voice engine but offered to sell me new accent. Navigated to that page and didn't like price (paid and now have to pay again to get basic stuff). So canceled. Now every time I try to launch TalkaDroid it goes to Google Play Store and not even to TalkaDroid page. So basically no longer works at all. Money back please.
