    I’ve used this app for years. MS has effected my eyesight in such a way that makes it hard to read especially on my morning subway commute. I work in book publishing and read manuscripts all the time. With this app I have been able to get my reading done even on a packed train. In three years I’ve only had one technical problem and the app’s staff had a fix for me within the day. Thank you for making reading accessible to everyone! Keep up the good work!
  • 💯 I never review apps, but... VOICE DREAM READER IS WORTH EVERY RED CENT 💯!

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ✨✨✨✨✨ ***** FIVE 5+STARS !! ***** ✨✨✨✨✨⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ The Voice Dream Reader provides an intelligent user-friendly environment. This is the best app I’ve ever installed on my iPhone. Period. Voice Dream Reader is unsurpassed in the way of assistive tech. The app dictates my lecture notes for me, and unlike to err is human, this app dictates completely error-free. With Voice Dream Reader, I am able to study my textbooks when I am in the car, walking, or anywhere I need to be hands-free. I just import my textbook into Voice Dream reader and it turns my textbook into an audio book. If I’ve time to follow along, The Voice Dream Reader App also allows an immersive experience; it reads the text aloud - eliminates distraction, and increases my auditory focus concurrent to visual attention. User Controls are Feature-rich and well-thought-out. We can scroll down page by page or freely, adjust the speed of the voice-over, or have each word highlighted they are spoken. It’s voice-over is so advanced, I sometimes forget it’s not an actual human speaking. Thank you, to The Voice Dream Team, as you have helped this humble scholar gain an undergraduate education. The Voice Dream Reader App is some of the best money I ever spent to that end.

    I am autistic, and had trouble doing anything besides reading. I would get so panicked whenever I did or tried to do anything but reading. This app has changed my life. I listen all day long and actually get things done at the same time! What was once panic inducing is now no big deal with this app! Thank you so much for this masterpiece! Nothing else has ever worked before, and I love the freedom this app brings. God bless!

    VoiceDream Reader has been a steadfast and reliable means for acquiring and reading books on my iOS devices for nearly 6 years. With each update has come more features and behavioral improvements without ever detracting from the core mission of the app-- to easily read electronic text. Ever since I got my Apple Watch, I've longed for a way to somehow listen to my books away from the phone, especially when I'm exercising. Now with version 4.7 this is a reality, and all at no extra cost. Mr. Chen's constant track record of delivering true value over the long hall speaks for itself. This is, and will continue to be, the only app I use to read eBooks, period. Thank you for yet another great update to an already outstanding reader.
  • Too expensive for what it provides

    Deep down I knew I would be disappointed, but I gave in to the hope that this would offer something significantly better. Unfortunately, my conclusion is that it is a nice app, but not worth the high price.
  • My most important app on my purchases

    The navigation simply does not work. Trying to rewind, set a percent does not work.
  • So much more than a book reader

    This is a great application for reading books. I especially appreciate the flexibility and ease of use for making adjustments two speed and play back. It is much simpler to use than other readers I have downloaded. However, I have been pleasantly surprised by how applicable this is for reading other formats including PDF, word documents, webpages, and even listening to old MP3 files for lectures that I have on my one drive account. Incredibly powerful an incredibly useful. Thank you for all your hard work in developing this application.
