Find The Best Text-to-Speech Apps To Read Your Documents To You

We've compiled a list of the best text-to-speech document readers in the App Store.

Echo - Multilingual Text Reader & Editor

Echo - Multilingual Text Reader & Editor

Sandratra Razafindralambo

Are you the kind of person who has to review a lot of text entries every day, but needs to give their eyes a rest? Or maybe you have to work with a lot of text documents in different languages and you need a tool to ensure everything is right? Echo is the perfect app to do exactly that.

Echo is an incredible app to boost your productivity, but it's also a very efficient tool. You can create new entries with our powerful rich text editor (or copy/paste content from anywhere) and Echo will take care of the rest. It will detect the language, read it out loud to you and because Echo supports background audio, you can switch to another app or lock your device and still enjoy your text entry with complete audio control.

You can use Echo to check and quickly proofread your text. Maybe you have an important speech to give, but you want an audio feedback of what it may look like or maybe you want to learn a new language and you need to practice by listening and working your pronunciation. These are only a few examples of how Echo can be used.

BigFONT OCR Text Reader with TTS, Reading Magnifier and Stereograms for Eye Exercises to help with Presbyopia, eye strain & Accessibility. The best document scanner to convert scan to text

BigFONT OCR Text Reader with TTS, Reading Magnifier and Stereograms for Eye Exercises to help with Presbyopia, eye strain & Accessibility. The best document scanner to convert scan to text

Gerd Graumann

Stop squinting! Magnify tiny print on labels 8x or use image-to-text OCR to read and listen to the digitized text on your device. Zoom mobile websites with text reflow to fit your display. Reduce eye strain with 3D exercises

Do you have trouble reading small print?

The Challenge: The print on many labels, menus, magazines etc. is too small. Mobile websites can be hard to read and don't let you zoom in.

The Solution – Use BigFONT and put your glasses away!

Magnify and even hear what's printed on that small label

OCR - simply take a picture of a label, magazine, menu or other hard to read text in 38 different languages or use an image or screenshot from the photo gallery. The text is automatically digitized and the words are displayed on your device in large, easy to read letters.

TTS - push a button and listen to a natural sounding voice that reads the digitized text back to you.

Share - if you want to edit or share the text, you can copy and paste it into any other application.

Magnifier - turn your iPhone into a magnifying glass with zoom levels up to 8-times the original size.

Go Big - easily read mobile websites with intelligent text zoom
With BigFONT you can increase the small print of many (otherwise static) mobile websites to a comfortable reading size, right on the original page. Now you can finally use pinch-to- zoom also on mobile websites like Wikipedia. You can also set up custom zoom buttons in your Safari browser for font sizes from 18 - 80 points with automatic text reflow, which reformats the page to fit perfectly inside the display of your iPhone, iPad or iPod, regardless of the text size.

Give your Eyes a Rest - Your tired eyes get welcome relief from digital eye strain through relaxing eye exercises using 3-D stereograms, which helps to preserve your eyesight.

Optometrist Finder - do you want to get you eyes checked? Based on your current GPS position, your device will show you recommended Optometrists around you with Yelp satisfaction ratings and map directions to get you there quickly (works in selected places).

Join our fast growing community of happy readers by downloading BigFONT now and help others by spreading the word.

Get BigFONT now and say goodbye to squinting. Enjoy reading everything again with ease!
