Listening to selected text
Select text on any web page, in Google Docs, in a PDF document or in some ebooks and have it read out loud using a high-quality text-to-speech. You can choose among 19 different languages and over 60 different voices.
Listening to individual letters
Oribi Speak can sound out letters as you write them. This direct auditory feedback makes it easier to choose the right letter.
Listening while writing
If you press the spacebar, Oribi Speak will read out the last word and/or sentence you wrote. This ‘writing echo’ makes it easier to reflect immediately on what you are writing.
Our smart word prediction gives you a unique support with spelling difficulties. If you start typing over, suggestions such as overall and overview will be presented.
Real-time text highlighting
When Oribi Speak reads your text, the entire sentence is highlighted, which makes it easier to follow.
Our automatic language recognition can tell which language your text is written in and switches to the correct voice automatically.
