SORRY for the late input... I am trying to catch up ;-)
Voice Dream Reader is pretty good, now it can read pdf without messing up the format. I like vBookZ pdf as well - https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/vbookz-pdf-voice-reader-us/id497274026?mt=8 . a free version is available -limited reading to a paragraph or so- $5.79 full version. Additional add-on voices also for $5.79 Note: these are not just "voices", they allow reading aloud in different languages. The app can be downloaded as well on Mac laptop or desktop.
Hope this info will be helpful
Have a nice day

Another vote for VoiceDream Reader and Writer - and they now have a version for reading e-mail, as well.

I have also heard good reviews for ClaroSpeak and ClaroPDF.

I am doing a review of the apps we recommend students to use on iPhone, iPads and androids to read PDf, eBooks and RTF's. We are also looking into note taking apps you are suggesting students to use.

Can anyone recommend some to us that they have found recently that they like.
