This is the fifth of many free video podcasts for Go Dyslexia! What is Voice Dream Writer? Voice Dream Writer is an iOS app that can be used on an iPad or iPhone. It is a easy to use writing application that has a number of powerful features. Voice Dream Reader Offers a Number of Helpful Tools:
  • Dictation or Voice to Text: Voice Dream Writer offers voice to text or dictation, so you can speak to your iPad and the words will appear.
  • Proof Reading: Now you can edit your writing by listening to the text spoken aloud. Like a personal proofreader, Voice Dream Writer uses text-to-speech technology, so that awkward sentences, grammatical errors and typos can be easily found. It addition, Voice Dream Writer can read words and sentences as they’re typed or dictated so that errors can be corrected right away.
  • Word Finding and Definitions: Voice Dream Writer helps individuals find the right words through phonetic search or meaning search. For example, search for “inuf,”, and you will find “enough”, or search for “large balloon” by meaning and you will find “zeppelin.” Word Finder also shows the dictionary definition of a word.
  • Organizing Ideas: Writer automatically keeps a separate outline of headings, paragraphs and sentences. The Outline helps writers structure their writing and reorganizing paragraphs and sections is a simple drag and drop. In addition, it allows the author to go anywhere in a document without endless scrolling.

Best New Features:

  1. Pac-man reading mode: The latest research at MIT and Harvard shows that everyone can double their reading speed with no loss of comprehension. The new technique combines audio, visual, and attention propulsion. The words disappear from the page a fraction of a second before they're spoken by text-to-speech.  This forces the reader to visually scan ahead. With  practice, the results can be amazing.
  2. Finger reading: Some readers struggle to follow even the slowest speed, which also becomes distorted. With finger reading, the reader drags a finger under the text to hear each word.
  3. Quickly browse the text: On an iPhone 6s or 6s plus, you can press firmly on the fast forward button while the app is reading --  Force Touch -- to double the reading speed. Release it slightly to return to normal speed.
