Type and Speak provides a text box for you to type in, then you can control speech through play, stop, rewind, and fast-forward buttons. There are options to change the pitch, speed, font size, and enable it to start speaking while typing. You can save speech output as audio files. The app alerts you that the file is saved as well as gives you the option to share the file. It also translated "Hello my name is Phone" text into Spanish (speech output). It only took me a few minutes to get this app downloaded, started, and speaking.
Fantastic! I didn't need internet to use it either. It did exactly what I needed when I became sick and was unable to use my voice. Thank you!!
I like this app because its really fun to type a page or something from a book and having someone to read it out. Sadly, this isn't a very useful app for me. Keep on working! 😊 Although it's not useful for me, it I very useful to those who are sick an can't talk, or just can't talk due to how they were born, like deaf and blind people. (Examples)
Works for short sentences.
I downloaded this app because I'd lost my voice. As long as your sentences are short, it works great! I typed in 12 words and it stopped after 11. Not a big deal, as I work with young children and short sentences work better anyway. Today I am happy I found this app!

Please change the English voice back
This app has been perfect for me since I listen to entire books on this app while working, so it's a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT when the English UK voice was changed because there's something very wrong with the new one, it's too scratchy and unnatural. Is there ANY WAY to change the voices back to the way they were before? I can't use this app anymore if I can't.
Excellent for those who cannot speak due to cancer or other impairment.
Sent email to developer asking for the ability to sort filenames by name so it is easier for patients to find them. Great app. Perfect. A voice-saver.
This app is amazing it is great when u r sick when I am sick I just crack out my phone and type and it talks for me. When I am sick and using this it is bcz it hurts to talk but this app saves me from being more hurt.
I love it! My voice is starting to crack which means im losing it. :( so im trying to save my voice by being quite but i dont want to write due to my laziness. So i found this app and its working to my taste! Thanks guys you are a life saver!! I recommend this app to everyone!!
I recently got a bout of laryngitis and this app saved me! It's easy to use and the voices are clear and easy to understand. Thank you so much for this great app, it really helped make a bad situation bearable.

Great app for communicating if you can't talk
For people like myself who can't talk, we need a certain kind of TTS app, and this app is nearly all of what we need. What we need is a text box that's as large as possible, and few distractions on the main screen, as we sometimes have the other person read what is typed instead of pressing speak. This app is a lot better than a lot of other TTS apps we could use, but please try to combine the two bars into one bar, and update some of those button icons.
Best text to speech app ever
This is currently the best text to speech app ever! The voices in it isn't too robotic or fake like it is in some other apps, it doesn't have too many complicated options (just nice to use) it has many languages and I like how it allows us to control the speed of the speech and enables us to pause or rewind whenever we feel like. I use this for studying as I could read better and it feels like someone's speaking to me, teaching me, creating a voice inside. This app really helps me a lot! Thanks :D
This is great. But, i found two the annoying thing. The first is, after you click to speak, the cursor go to the beginning of the text, so we need to tap the text again to make some correction. What i want is, cursor stay in its position, so we can directly tap keyboard after speak, to make correction. Second is, when we click clear text, there is two option again, cancel and clear. It would be good if its directly clear the text, no more cancel option
Liberty or Death
Gave me tears.
My seizures took my ability to speak to my 5 year old little girl. This app has made it so I could find a way to speak to her. To find an app that not only can give you that gift, and they do it at no charge makes my heart just believe there are still people who care. Thank you, and if I could give you more stars I would.
Type and Speak
Thanks to the developers for designing this wonderful app because it helps my mute friend communicate with me and others that can't read hand signs well. And it's also a great application for individuals with an speech impediment that has difficulties speaking words and phrasing sentences. Thanks again to the developers for a Job well done.
In the space provided just type anything you want single word or sentences it will read all that. You can also directly paste big paragraphs from webpages. Other apps used to hang and were featureless unless you pay them but this one is perfect.
Brilliant app, but would like option for a male voice
I lost my voice (laryngitis), so I stumbled across this app. I love it, only thing is why only female voices are used? Imagine a guy wants to use this for a speech and it sounds like a girl.
This app is widely praised and i see why. Its amazing it can help people who cant speak or choose not to. I love the features it offers but one thing i liked the most was i found it just in time for a day of silence to represent the people who dont speak up about bullying. If this app was ant better id be blown away. Other then the voices being limited it offers more then all the other apps with the same functions.
Does what it says but saving is useless
Its straight to the point. I copy paste web novel chapters on this to read as I do other stuff and i like how simple it is. I can change the pitch, speed, and accent as I please and it can play in the background while my phone is on sleep mode too. My only problem is that saving doesn't do anything. I clicked it and something saved but nothing opens the save file so idk how that works...
I just had my tonsils taken out, I am 18, so the recovery time is much longer and much more painful than it would be for a child. So eating, drinking, and especially talking is entirety too painful to do. I had a white board but its slower to write it all on a white board than it is to type, also its easier for people to understand me with the app. Only problem I have is that when you set it to a dialect it changes back to the original settings. Other than that, its a great app
Great for prank calls
I prank called my friend and his parents actually thought it was from the school saying that he got held back.Then my friend almost got in trouble, but then he figured out it was me.
I believe this app is awesome! It's funny to mess around with and yeah. Although the text's voice should be able to be changed into like a robot or helium, you know, to make it funnier. This is my favorite miscellaneous app, so for you people out there who haven't tried it yet, GET THIS! It's fun, although one more thought: Put a text voice changer that can change to anything you can put on. Thanks! Once again, best fun random app EVA!
Very Helpful if you have a voice disorder!
I have a neurological voice disorder called adductor spasmodic dysphonia. The muscles in my vocal chords spasm and choke off the sound intermittently, so it can be really hard for people to understand me. Especially if the place is noisy because I can't speak up over the sound and can't talk loudly. This app is my savior! I can save things that I've typed, such as an explanation as to why I'm using the phone to talk for me and don't have to retype it every time I need it. Thank you so much for this app.
Audio format is WAV only
My video editor apps don't support this kind of format. Useless. This is MY only problem. Overall it's very good.
It's nice to have a lengthy article read to you. especially in the pleasing British accent. Fan fiction, news articles, All good. But if you feel like writing a little yourself it's nice to have your own work read back to you to see if it flows
Works great on Samsung s6 edge.
This all works great with the Samsung voice app, it will speak what ever you write in in HD voice male or female in a bunch of languages and even English in a German, Russian or any accent. I messed about with this for ages and can come in handy for my YouTube videos. It's a must have app!

Love this, have been using it for about 3 or more years now i think. Wouldnt use any other. Sumple, does the trick, and you can save your speach. Love it. If i could make a suggestion that i would ABSOLUTELY love to have, add some effects PLEEEEASE! Like a robotic or droid, and echo too. Please please.
Loved it once I learned how to control the voice, pitch and speed. Best part is how easy it is to store commonly used phrases and then retrieve them. Once you build the library of things one would need to say, it makes it super easy! This is being used for a person with Parkinson's who also has had a mild stroke and I think it will be perfect.
Could be a vital medical application
This application helped me recently make it through a very serious medical time when I was not able to talk, due to a peritonsillar abcess, on my own but was perfectly timed to assist me in speaking with medical professionals concerning my unique emergency condition. Thank you so much for this application. Dr.s and RN's were stunned (and loved) how I was able to use an application for my speech, seperate from pen & paper. Thank you for making sure my voice was not taken away by illness, very helpful app.
I'm working with my nonverbal niece. It seems no one notice she could read, since they have been using only picture cards. I found your app downloaded it. It's made great changes in her life communicating at home and when we are out.
