USER COMMENTS:
"I just wanted to express my thanks for your wonderful app. I am an academic researcher who has A.D.H.D., and @Voice has been amazingly helpful to me. (...) In my case, ADHD manifests with challenges in concentration and focus. When I read on the page, I frequently find myself having to re-read sentences, paragraphs or whole passages upon realizing that I had "zoned out" while reading. (...) these problems are resolved when I use @Voice to "read" written work. The TTS format keeps me on track, because even if I get distracted while listening, the speech continues and I am able to quickly return to the author's overall train of thought. And, thanks to the intuitive interface of @voice aloud (especially the highlighting function) it is easy to back-track if needed. (...) So, @voice has truly improved my life and prospects. I estimate that your app allows me to read about 10-12 times more than I have otherwise have been able to read, and has definitely improved my ability to edit my own work. "
