    It wouldn't open the pdf I wanted to be read aloud. I cut and paste text into the text window, but when I "press the android" to read it nothing happens. Completely disappointed.

    Sorry guys. Worked relatively well despite lag on my SGS3. But on Nexus5 doesn't work at all. Tried uninstall reinstall, clear data, different voice synthesiser, nothing.

    This was a good app now It's broke like a dog with 2 legs 1 in the front and 1 in the rear HTC Amaze 4G & Samsung Note 10.1. This app needs to roll back at least 2 updates

    I have ALS and like most it affects my hands. The dialogue window does not resize when typing so the keyboard covers the talk button and other controls making me constantly open and close the keyboard making far too hard to use with my bad hands. So far i think Type and Speak is best Android app for ALS.

    It did not translate the document as the devs claim. It only showed a bunch of jibberish. Been scammed
