Our daily lives are filled with reading! You read your email, you read web pages, you read critically important documents as part of your job - you're even reading right now! Imagine how much more you could get done if you free up your eyes to do other work, while still receiving all of the information from your reading material. What am I talking about? I'm talking about LISTENING to text using TextAloud 4, the world's most popular text to speech utility!

TextAloud 4 reads your email, websites, reports, and more, aloud. You can also use TextAloud 4 to save your daily reading material to audio files that you can then play back on your portable audio devices. And while you're listening to all of this text, you could be doing something else -- cleaning, exercising, cooking, you name it! It's also great for proofreading your writing. You may have missed the same word over and over while reading, but when you hear it mispronounced, you'll know for sure!

I know what you're thinking -- robot voices will be the death of you. Not with TextAloud 4! TextAloud 4 is compatible with a huge party of lifelike, sonorous, and entertaining 3rd-party voices that will make it a pleasure to listen to even the driest material!

Brenda Adams I cannot computer LIVE without this software. The sale price is great. There is more to this software then, at first, meets the eye. I don't just use it for reading test aloud, which I love. But I also use it for grabbing cuts and copies of anything I choose. It holds the documents, in searchable files, until I decide if I want to delete, edit, save, etc. I love that it never requires me to Save. I just slap and go. I keep a ton of 'files' in it, ready to be used, copied, saved at any time. I don't think the company touts any of these uses, but I have found them indispensable. I use the voice read backs, talking feature, to help with editing and proof reading. It's amazing what you can catch with your hearing that you do not always catch with your eyeballs. AND, sometimes my eyes are tired and I just don't feel like reading, so I let the software read my emails and articles to me. LOVE LOVE LOVE

riad af Hello.
1. Does textaloud 4 support hebrew text to speech?
2. Regarding acapela voices purchased in the past using textaloud 3, will they be available inside textaloud 4 ?

Rick Ellis We sell the Cerence Carmit Hebrew Female voice. You can find it from the Cerence link on our homepage.

I do not know of any issues with Acapela voices purchased from NextUp working in TextAloud 4. If you run into any problems, send email to for assistance.

Kelly Hamblin I say this or something similar every time I see this lovely bit of software for sale on BITS. This is the best of its kind, and I've tried them all. Anyone looking for a text to voice app cannot do better than to purchase this one.

I do wish there were sales on voices more often. Voices are expensive - not the just ones that can be bought from NextUp, but all voices. I was disappointed with the last one I purchased, and its not like they can be exchanged.

Rick Ellis Kelly, thanks for your feedback. We try to be competitive with all our pricing.
NextUp Technologies - Feb 11 at 8:13am Copy Link
Kelly Hamblin @ Rick Ellis - Yes, you are competitive. Voices are expensive everywhere. I would only buy them from NextUp.

Rod User Love textaloud, paid full price for it and use it everyday! That said I think the voices are a slime move by the company because they lock them to textaloud whereas voices you by from other vendors work everywhere.

The voice lock-in gives me mixed feelings because I think that tactic is a complete and utter slime move, but textaloud itself is THE best text to speech program there is, that I know of, and I have spent hundreds of hours looking through every possible option.

The reason I think it so slimly? Because disabled people often need voices to work with more than one text to speech program, Textaloud is great! BUT it's not a good all-in-one tool for disabled people, it's a piece in the puzzle for dealing with your disability, which forces them to need to buy voices in more than one place and use different voices since the best voices on textaloud are vender exclusives that you can't buy anywhere else.

Rick Ellis I'm sorry you view it as you do, but the voice companies control how their technology is licensed. When voices are locked to TextAloud, it is because that is a requirement for us to be able to license them. We are clear about such things on our website, and our support will help if someone purchases the wrong product.

Rod User Alright, I'm reasonable, go ahead and post a link to the license agreements that requires you to do so, since that would be true transparency.
