Voice Dream Reader Lite


Having reached top 10 in Education in 86 countries, Voice Dream Reader is the world's most accessible reading tool. With advanced text-to-speech and a highly configurable screen layout, it can be tailored to suit every reading style from completely auditory to completely visual, plus synchronized combination of both.

Voice Dream Reader supports reading PDF and Word documents, DRM-free EPUB and DAISY eBooks, Web pages and more. It's directly integrated with Bookshare, Dropbox, G-Drive, Evernote, Pocket, Instapaper, and Gutenberg.

We update Voice Dream Reader regularly with new features: we're committed to making this the last reading app you will buy.

The Lite version of Voice Dream Reader reads approximately 300 characters at a time, which means it stops reading after a few sentences, and you'll have to press Play again. Plus, you can download our premium voices to test them out. (Keep in mind that the premium voices are NOT free in the paid version.)
