Eine tolle App und ein fantastischer Support! VORBILDLICH! (*****) by UweHermann – Nov 26, 2017
Ich nutze die App als Sprachausgabe, um meine Texte auf Wordwiederholungen und Rechtschreibfehler durchzusehen. Das klappt prima. Ich lasse mir den Text vorlesen und verfolge ihn gleichzeitig in dem Textverarbeitungsprogramm meine Wahl. Nachdem ich die App ausprobiert habe, kam mir dann die Idee für eine weitere Funktion, also schickte ich dem Programmierer eine Mail. Innerhalb weniger Stunden bekam ich völlig überraschend eine Rückmeldung. Er versprach mir, bei nächster Gelegenheit diese Funktion (Den Text der Zwischenablage vorlesen zu lassen) zu implementieren. Am nächsten Morgen hatte ich eine weitere Mail von ihm. Er hatte die Nacht durchgearbeitet, die Funktion eingebunden und bereits ein Update eingereicht. Unglaublich! Besser kann die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Entwickler und Anwender nicht sein. Allein dafür würde ich schon 5-Sterne vergeben — und für die App sowieso. Wer so eine App sucht, sollte hier zugreifen!

    Hi,
    I’m interested in buying your product. I understand everything except two.
    First, “Enter cost per word”–>What does this mea? Should I pay it every word?
    Second, “download more voices”–> System voices are good, but sometimes it’s not so natural. Should I purchase the extra voices? If so, can I use the voice within your program right off? If you give me a prompt reply, it’s mine!
    Thanks,
    Peter

      Enter cost per word: This is just for your calculation. If you let translate your text by someone else, this can help you calculate the costs.
      Voices: It supports the voices which come with your OS version, so see there. Newer systems supports update for a more natural voice.

        Hi,
        I’m a registered user, I don’t hear any sound after installation.
        I changed the sound setting in Mac and many different Voicereader settings, but no luck.
        Help!
        Thanks,

        Peter

          Please provide a screenshot. You are the first user who reported this problem.
          Also provide what you typed in, and what language you selected. And what version of OS do you use.

      I think this is fixed now? Seems to be a problem with your Mac.

      For VoiceReader Version 6.4.0 (12) you can change the speed. The pitch can not be changed right now. Do you need that, and for what? I just ask because then I can change the Mac App so that it suits your needs for the next version.

    Hallo, ist dies nur bei mir so, oder kann ich die beiden “Germann-Tonbeispiele” nicht anhören? Wenn ich auf “Play” klicke, geschieht nichts und wenn ich auf “MP3” klicke, öffnet sich eine neue Seite mit dem “Reparatur-Service”. Vielen Dank für Ihre Antwort, denn ich möchte schon zuerst mal hören, wie sich das Ganze anhört 😉

      Hört sich gleich an wie die vom macOS eingebauten.
