Speechify

Speechify is a mobile and desktop app that reads any text aloud using a computer generated text to speech voice. The app is notable for using optical character recognition technology to turn any printed text into audio. The app lets users take photos of text and then listen to it read out loud instantly.
Use Speechify to scan any printed text on a page or in a book, upload any PDF, or copy and paste any text from anywhere on your mobile device. Then listen as your chosen AI narrator reads the information out loud to you. You also have the option to save scanned pages to your Speechify library and listen later.
