User Reviews :
-The hands free voice to text was much better in the note 3! This one is horrible!! Does not work half the time and when you say read new massage it always starts at the beginning so you have to hear the beginning of each message every time you listen to a message. I do not like this app!!
-I is easy to operate…user-friendly no mess no fuss….it literally does what you want it to to do. No stress. One thing I have to mention is the confusion in the word full stop or period. The software does not recognize punctuation.
-For some reason it won’t let me enter the app. It doesn’t show up on my home screen, when i search my phone It doesn’t show up and when I go to my apps and games and click on it it doesn’t say “open” but just “uninstall”. I’ve tried uninstalling and installing again, but that didn’t work either.
-I’ve got a problem with Google translate. I use the male voice but when i press GTTS it automatically download the female voice and set it as a default and i don’t need that
-To be honest predictive text barely works. I can speak and it thinks I said of the walk sooty the keyboards not mince bete Do see the glitch I’m seeing here? I’m sure but you’re going to be seeing all kinds of crazy stuff LOL do you see what it I was talking about predictive texting and do you want to walk or I don’t even know why LOL I have no idea
-I find this app useful when it works properly and doesn’t cut you off in mid-sentence. I’m a very fast talker so that’s not the issue. Also it doesn’t like to capitalize the first letter in every sentence and has a problem cutting you off before it will add a. At the end of a sentence. It needs a fix other than that I really like this app if it worked properly I would give it 5 stars.
-Room has to be quiet other wise it cancels out and puts a whole different word than what you said… Doesn’t do well out side.. Unless you speak louder and hold the phone really close to your mouth
-Power of words Words that move us in text to speech which is important in our hearts and minds comes from voice and words from sprit of truth that gives us faith hope and over all Love….thank God!. It is all good……
-This is a good app however I would say every few months it’s slow to respond matter of fact it seems to quit working I have an LG Stylo phone. However when this is working properly it’s fantastic
-I am in the US but have my default language set as UK English. Latest update (3.14.9 on Nexus 5x) ignores this setting and plays speech in US English. There is now no difference between Indian, UK, and US English. Poor QA. EDIT: Upgrading from 2 stars to 4 after discovering that I had to re-download the UK speech packs. Would have been nice if you mentioned this in your change notes Google, rather than just “”Various other improvements… ” 🙁
-It can’t read from many apps and sites (for example Facebook). A very very big minus also (I almost considered giving just one star) is the lack of support for Bulgarian language.
-This is a very fine app, you all at google got it going on. Wish I WAS SMART ENOUGH AND YOUNG ENOUGH TO GET A JOB WITH YOU
-Very smooth read back EXCEPT for the hiccups handling full stops and other abbreviation marks in sentences for instance after Mr. Also if used with screen off the app stops regularly, somtimes mid sentence, for no apparent reason… I have checked and there is no option for this so is it a default built in? Minor niggle but can be irritating…
-Unsure what the updates changed, but now I have to enunciate every single syllable of every word I say into the mic Or it will not get the right words. Its not horrible, just a little annoying. Ill post a full review after I retrain it a bit and see if that helps
-Great app, I once struggled to say even the most basic curse words in different languages. Now, I just type whatever vulgar thing that comes to mind and I can insult someone in whatever language I want!! I mean, obviously a lot of ways to curse sometime out falls into the territory of idioms and probably don’t necessarily have the same meaning from one language to the other… But STILL, the idea is there!
-It doesnt support Persian but supports some far less common languages! Thanks google!
-This is an excellent worldwide learning language source root which is very helpful to teach any language for all of educated and uneducated persons. But if it is used to be offline it should be more helpful for all. Instead thanks for kind of this motivation.
-Persian still in queue . Pop of them and then push it to the app , Googleman 😉 We getting tired
-Does anyone know how to replay read out loud text messages? It would be very helpful for my work
– I wait for Hebrew imlementation.. when will it be? Such a shame that Apple did tts in Hebrew and Google didn’t yet..

-This is a very responsive and flexible TTS software and specially important for visually impaired folks to be used along with Talkback or other screen reading softwares. In order to help Iranian folks too, please add support for Farsi/Persian so that the blind community have a human-like voice to use on their Android devices cause they only have ESpeak as the only text to speech software to use for reading Farsi texts that is very robotic in its sound. Please keep up the good work.

-How do I remove the text-to-speech icon/ bubble on my cellphone screen? I have tried everything, even uninstalling the app but the icon remains on the screen and stops working. It gets in the way and is very annoying. I like the app but not the icon…

-Beautiful Little Application. Having used Apple’s Siri for years this one is superb!
-Not sure what it does but if it’s supposed to help me compose texts the predictive is waaaay annoying.
-This app has never read anything back to me but I love it because I hate typing text messages but you do have to read back what you said because sometimes it’s totally different then what you said it’s got me into trouble a couple of times so now I always remember to read it back before I send also my son’s name is Damon but it always puts diamond that just makes me so mad and sometimes it just stops working but all in all I love it
-You guys seriously need to update voice typing it’s glitchy and it keeps crashing and it’s getting on my last nerve I use voice to type so that way I can respond to people quickly not so I can wait 50 years for my phone to process what I was saying
-I love the app the reason I love it is because I have dyslexia I can not read so makes it easy for me to text people should had this 20 some years agoi
